I am about to put my publishing schedules for this year on hiatus.
I am going top reorganize the storylines for both * Metaverse Saga * and Odyssey * Star.
I feel 2020 will be a big year for both as I relaunch ODYSSEY * STAR with some older stories that have new names and new edits.
Odyssey * Star will publish quarterly throughout the year. There will be three serials and one stand alone story. There is a spot within the main timeline that all of these stories happen. I will ensure that that are shown in the timeline where they are supposed to be. I am writing this saga with serials and trilogies with a few single book stories.
* Metaverse Saga * will be relaunched with new covers and new edits. This saga is intertwined throughout multiple series. Some of these books will get new names in the process.
I am going to spend the rest of 2019 fixing these sagas and continue to write to get ahead in the books of both sagas.
Even looking to relaunch the Southern Hospitality series. Southern Hospitality is my erotic paranormal series under the pen name Brien O'Raighne.
Tobias was always his mother’s favorite. Unlike his older brothers, he was always a thoughtful and gentle boy. He was too young to join the war effort when the Rebellion broke out in 1861, but that was probably for the best for everyone involved. Tobias lacked both the physical strength and the unflappable confidence of a good soldier, though his sweetheart Bonnie went a long way remedying the latter during their courtship.
He became “the man of the house” and took his duties as seriously as a 9-year-old could. It didn’t take long to see he had a head for figures, and helped his Boston neighbors with bookkeeping and other odd jobs before eventually becoming an accountant. But around the age of 20, he started to feel the weight of a life unlived, and got the notion into his head to go out West and try to strike it rich in California.
The future is very hard to predict.
But the near future looks to be getting brighter by the day.
I have things in the works that will improve my life for the better.
I think that is great for me and my family.
Just looking to get things done.
You will hear more on this in the near future.
This is just an update on what is to come.
I am going to make my predictions for the upcoming season.
Two divisions made significant moves to make themselves better.
I am going to start with division winners.
AL WEST: HOUSTON ASTROS
This team is fairly locked to win their division this year.
They added a very consistent bat in Michael Brantley and more power at catcher with Robinson Chirinos.
Their lineup from top to bottom has the ability to mash and score.
lineup, also, features four possible MVP Candidates: Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman, and George Springer.
Their starting rotation features Verlander and Cole with Forrest Whitley coming later in the season.
Returning to the rotation are Collin McHugh and Brad Peacock after a year in the bullpen.
They added Wade Miley to be the lefty in this right handed heavy pitching staff.
I know the schedule of Metaverse Books until May of 2027.
But those books are not set in stone until written.
However, this doesn't mean that I cannot add more books to my schedule to go even further past that point.
I may even change the schedule to add more to the plans that I already have in development.
There may be additions to the four series already being written in the Metaverse.
But that is neither here nor there for now.
Nothing is set until publication.
Also, there are more books coming for the Odyssey * Star Universe as well. I have four to five series in various states of development. There are several episodic series that I am contemplating doing within this universe. Titles of these series include: Chronicles (first book is Into the Unknown), Sentinel Princess, Star Samurai, The Lycaran, and Phantom Star. The idea behind this saga was to write them in a trilogy or serial, not an interconnected, interweaving series of books like the Metaverse.
Furthermore, I may even have another Saga in the process of being created. Not sure where I want to go with it. I started the story sometime back but have yet to add anything to it in a while. I still have a placeholder image on the front page of this site. But we will see.
This is all for now.
Check out the newest release of the METAVERSE, Let the Games Begin (Mind Games #2).
My latest book idea is called Phantom Star.
Before the start of the book a small village gets attacked.
The Royal Guard of Archduke Edwin arrive to catch the instigators only to leave one of their own behind.
A young girl finds him.
The man looks like her father.
The man's memory is gone.
But is he who he seems to be...
Originally, set to be a standalone series.
As I began writing it, it started falling into the Odyssey Star Universe.
Now the book will be the start of the Phantom Star series within the Odyssey Star Universe.
The latest installment of the METAVERSE and the second chapter of the MIND GAMES will arrive on digital bookshelves in 15 days.
Check it out. Put in your pre-order now at http://books2read.com/MVMG2LtGB
Yesterday, I finished the editing and formatting of the digital copy of Let the Games Begin (Mind Games #2).
I will be working on the paperback to accompany the digital copy on its release date.
I still have to upload the digital copy to a couple of online platforms, either for distribution or sale.
I have priced this book at $0.99 in the US and it will convert over to the other currencies in their home territories and on their representative sites,
The prices of all the other books will drop back to the price of the Let the Games Begin (Mind Games #2).
The price drop will not only affect the Metaverse Saga but will affect the Odyssey Star Saga as well.
Furthermore, starting in March will be the release of the translations to the Metaverse and the Odyssey Star Sagas.
I am an avid chronicler of stories. I work on a lot of stories at a time.
the Metaverse and Odyssey Star sagas are my main focus at this time.
Therefore, I will cut back my schedule from the last couple of years to concentrate on quality of story not just quantity.
February 20th, 2019 - Let the Games Begin (Mind Games #2)
May 22nd, 2019 - Being Hunted (the Phoenix Hunter #4)

Stay tuned for more....
This past month has rather been busy for me.
Writing, like I wish, is not my only job.
I work writing stories in my time off from my money making job.
That being said, I am hard at work on the new Metaverse book, Order of the Blue Moon (Moontripper #2).
At the same time, I am working on a story for the Anthology called Magical Book of Wands, which is due out later this year, October, if I remember correctly.
Furthermore, I am back writing in the Odyssey Star universe with Star Samurai and Sentinel Princess.
There are other books and stories that I am working on, which includes Adventures of Griffin Kane, Harmony, Southern Hospitality, Southern Desires, and more....
The next Metaverse books due out soon are:
Also working on the cover to Order of the Blue Moon for release real soon. Later this week or next.
See you on the other side of the screen.
