I have scheduled books to follow a certain pattern throughout the next couple of years. Reaching March 2019, so far. I am sure that things will go on further. This is all I have for now. There will be collections of books in each of the series as well.
Each series is set for now.
Southern Hospitality monthly in the online magazine Darkness Within eZine.
These titles are not set in stone. But I believe them to be set up for some time. I believe in the story lines that I am working on. The Epilogue and interludes in these books will set up certain things that can happen down the line. Somethings may have far reaching effects in their series. There are more characters and stories to come in each of these series. Each series will expand and grow into their own wild and crazy universes with the possibility to cross over from one universe to the other.
I have plenty of stories within me to keep these series going for a long time.
Also, as I continue writing these series, I will find a way to get them put onto their own websites connected to this one.
Heroes + Villains is the new superhero series that I began writing a few days ago.
The H + V universe is starting with the superhero known as White Knight.
The first book is the origin of the superhero known as White Knight. His story will lead up to the formation of The Elites, an elite squad of superheroes that are sanctioned by the US Government to do things that they cannot.
White Knight is the first superhero in a long line of superheroes and villains from the publisher of Odyssey * Star and Southern Paranormals. There is a possibility of characters from the other two series showing up in Heroes + Villains. I have, yet, to figure this out, but it will fit as the story dictates it.
Time will tell how the three series and possibly others combine to make a long range overall story that fits all together.
They are all vastly different stories with different genre types: High Tech Fantasy / Science Fantasy / Space Fantasy (Odyssey * Star), Paranormal / Urban Fantasy (Southern Paranormals), and Superhero (Heroes + Villains).
I cannot wait to find a way to weave this all together in an epic spanning story will all my characters involved.
The first storyline of Odyssey * Star starts with the book The Genesis Bond and ends with The Exodus Code. In between those two books becomes the Search for the Exodus Code part 1, 2, & 3. Part one takes place in the first book of Star Samurai. Part two into the first book of Diviniti. Part three heads into the one shot book, Starfyre Rose. These three books are the stories in which Shadaar and his army search out the legendary Exodus Code pieces. There are three pieces spread out in the unlikeliest of locations.
How does the Exodus Code work?
That will not be found out until the book Odyssey * Star: The Exodus Code.
Until, then, keep watch of Odyssey*Star.
EPSILON 4 | GREGOS SYSTEM
JOHNATHAN ASHCROFT, A TEN-year old boy with curly blond hair, runs through the halls of Epsilon 4 space station. He is
being tailed by Security Officers. He heads down a hall that he knows is a dead end. At the end of the hall there is a secret passageway that is open. In his hand, he carries a vial of medicine that his mother desperately needs.
“John, hurry up!” John’s older brother, Billy, motions for him to quicken his pace.
“Mickey, is Devon here?”
“Yeah. He’s got a lot of dried blood on him.” Mickey says. Kelly nods her head with a few. Uh, huhs.
“In his room?” Kelly asks. She doesn’t even move as a one-armed Devon rushes into the living room.
“Get down!” Devon says as bullets fly into the apartment through the sliding glass door to the balcony.
Devon dives at Mickey. They fly over the couch as a bullet zips into the apartment. It hits Devon square into the same shoulder already hurt.
Mickey gasps for air. “Get off me, you big oaf!” He rolls Devon off him and, then, notices the bullet wound. “Shit! Man! You saved my life.”
Odyssey * Star: Starfyre Rose is about the origins of the elven maiden space pirate. We are introduced to her family in this book. This book is a one-shot book, right now. There is the posdibility of a trilogy, but the book was only planned as an one-shot book. Starfyre Rose shows up in multiple books playing rather large roles at times.
I have written four chapters of the book and currently on the fifth. The book is not due out until February 2018
Odyssey Star * The Genesis Bond is into the fifteenth chapter as it nears the climax of the story. This will leadbooks and series into a larger story that is meant to introduce and cross over multiple
Odyssey Star: Samurai Star is nearing the fifteenth chapter as well.
Odyssey * Star: Diviniti has been completely written, but needs to be typed up. Though, the book is not due out until November. This is either going to be a trilogy or a series of books, not sure at the moment. But the books will tie into the larger narrative of the shared universe.
Odyssey Star: Star Samurai was originally supposed to be the rewrite of a book called Starshot Chronicles: A New Arrival. The original story had Starragaar stealing plans off a Coalition Capital Battlecruiser in space near a jump gate. Instead, the basic plotline is the same but the location and overall story is different. There is more involved in the story than before.
Right now, I am about nine chapters into the story. The story is showing more into who Starragaar is and her relationships with other members of the Confederate Military and more. It will even show more about the background of other characters as well. I will flesh out relationships of characters around Starragaar in this story and additional stories to come
Southern Panormals: First Moonlight: A Moontripper Novel is complete. Round one of the edits is complete as well. I am going into round two of the edits soon. The book is due out for consumption online and in print on April 21, 2017.
Southern Paranormals: Rogue Wolf, the third book in the shared universe series is nearing completion. Ten chapters have been written and there are likely not many other chapters to go. The main clash, the final battle, has yet to be written. New characters have been introduced that were not introduced before. Storylines carry over from both the Phoenix Hunter and First Moonlight. Also, it sets up the next book, slightly, as well as a future book as well.
Odyssey * Star: The Genesis Bond is into the throws of being written. The Genesis Bond has a major twist that I will not reveal just, yet. It is an intriguing book to write. There will be a prequel series... Well, may be more than that... This series may work better as a bunch of trilogies written to fit the books I have written in the past. I have a bunch of books that need to be published under the Odyssey * Star name.
I have a storyline in mind that may weave through multiple series of Odyssey * Star. I like where the books are going and the writing that is happening. I will republish some stories with updates and other stories written that have, yet to be published.
One volume needs to be rewritten to fit within the current prose of the books being written now.
