Arcanum arrives in three weeks from your favorite online bookstores
I look forward to continue the story of the Metaverse.
This book will, also, be the first book in the Arcanum trilogy.
Here is a small exceprt, enjoy!
IT WAS LATE IN the evening; Elise is serving coffee to a strange gentleman at Lester’s Diner on the edge of the small town of Cyprus Falls. The strange gentleman sits like a statue wearing a fine dark blue Armani suit with black shiny shoes. Elise, a curly brunette waitress wearing a blue uniform trimmed in white with a white apron, senses something is off about the pale faced gentleman to whom she is serving. When the cup reaches half full he stops her.
"Thank you," his melodic voice says stoically. "That will be all."
Elise stops pouring the coffee and walks away feeling as though she has just been dismissed making her irked. She continues over to the counter where a couple of her coworkers, fellow waitresses, are staring at the strange pale faced gentleman, as if drooling over him. Elise looks at them rather quizzically.
“I could eat him up,” says the curly blonde waitress.
"I'd forget about him if I were you two," Elise says as her co-workers look at her with furrowed brows.
"Why is that?" Heather, he blonde shoulder length haired co-worker, asks as she drools over Elise's customer. "He's just so scrumptious. Look at his physique. Yum."
"Yeah, Elise," Kari Cook, her flame headed co-worker with green eyes, tells her. "He could just be having a bad day. That guy is hot."
"Well, maybe," Elise says after thinking about it for a second while sitting the coffee pot back in the burner to keep it warm. "But he was still rather smug and rude. Something is off about him."
The bell from the back dings and the cook shouts "Order from Tables 4 & 5 are ready!"
Quickly, Kari grabs a large tray to put the orders on. She looks at the orders and becomes queasy.
Ugh. My God, who could eat food cooked like this? She thought to herself.
The door from outside opens as another pale-faced gentleman enters. He is wearing a dark leather jacket with dark hair slicked back. He is also wearing blue jeans and rattlesnake skin boots.
I have done some soul searching and thinking after putting out that last post and ambitious publishing schedule. I have cut back on the schedule. At the same time, I am rebranding all my characters and universes into one much larger universe called the Metaverse.
It is called the Metaverse because all non-humans are classified as Metas, whether they be Vampire, Lycan, Witch, Faeries, Elves, or Alien. The are policed by their own force called Metapol.
At first the Metaverse will start on Earth. Eventually, it will spread out into the unknown universe in the stars above. Some of my favorite characters from previous incarnations of books written will make their appearance.
The schedule is written through October 2021. But it is not set in stone.
Every Saga out there needs a schedule.
I love writing and am ver ambitious.
Eventually, I will find a way to tie in all of my books and their sagas to one another.
For now, however, I wish to explore each of these sagas separately.
But in the process of wanting to explore these universes separately, I have schedules set for every saga through the end of 2020.
It may be early to decide this, but I think it is the right decision so that I know what is coming and how it is going to go.
I now present the schedules:
SOUTHERN PARANORMALS will follow a FEB. - MAY - AUG - NOV schedule after this year's last novel, Mind Games, emerges in October.
