Started the typing process to the beginning of the sixth installment of the METAVERSE.
The sixth installment of the METAVERSE is the third book of the Phoenix Hunter, which is Grimoire of Darkness.
Grimoire of Darkness will, also, be translated into foreign languages as well.
Also, the METAVERSE has 31 books on the schedule thus far. Other books are in the process of being worked upon. But the schedule is just tentative until the books are written and published. I will adjust the schedule as I see fit. I have adjusted to fit the story of The Games Begin into the overall story of the Mind Games series.
Some characters will transverse over into other series. There are plans for Destiny to show up in the Arcanum series. Michel LeBeouf will show up in a very important roll in Order of the Blue Moon. the Phoenix Hunter has crossed over with the other series of the METAVERSE.
Harmony will have its own series and does not connect to the METAVERSE.
Odyssey*Star will arrive in it own time. It may not be the same saga as before. I am still contemplating what Odyssey * Star will entail when it comes back. It may or may not come in contact with the METAVERSE. I doubt it will.
METAVERSE PRESS will keep the book series in its run that is already there. But METAVERSE starting in 2018 will likely cut down to publishing four books a year so that October can be other projects I am writing. METAVERSE will publish in Feb, Apr, June, and August. Each current series will have a specific month to publish in.
Stay tuned for more updates...
I am in the process of translating the first five parts of the METAVERSE into Français (French), Deutsche (German), italiano (Italian), Português (Portuguese), and Español (Spanish).
the Phoenix Hunter will become le Chasseur de Phenix, der Phönixjäger, il Cacciatore di Fenice, o Caçador de Fênix, and el Cazador de Fenix.
First Moonlight: A Moontripper Novel will translate to Premier Clair de Lune: Un Roman Lunaire, Erstes Mondlicht: Ein Mondreisender Roman, Prima Luce della Luna: Un Romanzo Viaggiatore Luna, Primeiro Luar: Uma Novela do Viajiante da Lua, Primero Luz de Luna: Una Novela de Viajero Lunar
Rogue Wolf: the Phoenix Hunter II will translate into Loup Dechaine: le Chasseur de Phenix II, Schurkenwolf: der Phönixjäger II, Lupo Canaglia: il Cacciatore di Fenice II, Lobo Rouco: o Caçador de Fênix II, Lobo Pícaro: el Cazador de Fenix II
Arcanum will translate into either Arcanum (french / italian), Arcano (portuguese/ spanish), or Arkanum (German).
Mind Games will translate into Jeux d'Esprit, Gedankenspiele, Giochi di Mente, Jogos Mentais, and Juegos Mentales
I am using a translator program to help me translate it. I know that programs are not perfect. But I am doing my best to get them translated properly.
Three books are in progress at this point...
I am in the midst of typing MIND GAMES for its release on October 20th. The book is on pre-order at your favorite online bookstore.
GRIMOIRE OF DARKNESS: THE PHOENIX HUNTER III is being written by hand at the moment. I find writing this way to be somewhat easier than staring at a blank screen all the time. It will release next year on Feb 21st tentatively.
HARMONY, not a part of the METAVERSE and in a separate line of stories all together, arrives late next year. It will be
Summer is that time of year that seems, generally, loaded with inconsistancies. Yet, I have still managed to keep to a bimonthly publication schedule. To tell you the truth, it is not easy to do so But I am finding a way.
Part of the inconsistancies is the lack of a consistent schedule on this site. I have not decided what content to put on here and on what schedule. That is still a work in progress itself.
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.
This summer is the first time that I have things going at full speed.
Things are going well, when they go well.
Otherwise, they are just crap.
Anyways, I will cut down my time blogging to a Monday - Wednesday - Friday schedule.
In the fall, I will go to a Monday through Friday schedule will themed posts on each day along with news popping in whenever.
I have, yet, to determine what those themed posts will be. Some ideas I am playing with include stories, tips, reviews, character bios, and more...
Also, there will be a new logo on this site as well as an updated site address to streamline everything in the near future.
Talk to you later
