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.
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).

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)
August 21st, 2019 - Curse of the Blood Moon (Moontripper #3)
TBA - the Phoenix Hunter Collection: Books 1-4
TBA - Moontripper Trilogy
TBA - Odyssey Star: Into the Fire (Odyssey Star #2)
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.
I still have the April 20, 2018 date for publishing a book.
However, the original book in that slot for METAVERSE, Order of the Blue Moon: A Moontripper Novel, has been pushed back to the June slot. This pushes back all the other METAVERSE books too by 2 months. In its spot, Odyssey Star: Into the Unknown will be published by Galaxia Press and Rising Dragons Publishing.
Odyssey Star: Into the Unknown is on the way to being finished. I am 14 chapters into the story. I feel it being near the conclusion within the month of March, it will be done.
As I sit here and go through the work of moving all my books into one KDP account and doing some rebranding, I realize that the rebranding was not as necessary as I thought.
I may go back and fix things but still tie them all together within the same saga but in separate subseries of the main series, if that makes any sense.
Grimoire of Darkness is truly the third of the the Phoenix Hunter series, but it also has other characters crossover from Mind Games and Cyprus Falls Coven series. This book also leads into the next Moontripper book, Order of the Blue Moon.
It is not easy to write an interconnected series with subseries of books as well, but I am finding it rather intriguing and challenging as well as a bit fun.
Look for the METAVERSE Books Grimoire of Darkness (Metaverse: Phoenix Hunter #3) tomorrow and Order of the Blue Moon: A Moontripper Novel (Metaverse: Moontripper #2) on April 20th, 2018.
There will soon be a change in the logos of all the books back to there respective subseries logos that are already created. They will coincide with the next release and update to the METAVERSE saga.
I have already transferred all the METAVERSE books' digital copies to the same KDP account. While doing that, I streamlined them from multiple series to just one. They are under the same banner as METAVERSE.
Now, I am reformatting the books to have the same aesthetic throughout. This includes the interior page format and the logos. As I get the paperbacks ready, I am setting up the presale for the digital format of GRIMOIRE OF DARKNESS, the 6th book in the series. I am currently writing ORDER OF THE BLUE MOON as well.
