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.

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.
Been thinking of how I can rework the covers to make them more exciting and more like movie posters.
Not sure how I will pull it off but I will figure out a way.
The book covers to me have no pizzazz.
Yes, I created the covers.
Yes, I drew the covers.
But to me they do not pop like I want them to.
Although, I hear that people like the cover to the Phoenix Hunter.
I happen to like the cover to Mind Games myself as well as the Grimoire of Darkness cover.
But I have not created the Odyssey Star: Into the Darkness cover because I am not satisfied with the cover itself.
I have the basic layout I want but not satisfied with how the artwork turned out. Not sure one of the characters on the cover needs to be there or I am missing a character on the cover. Not sure..
Oh well, I am thinking aloud.
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.
Part Five of the METAVERSE, Mind Games, arrives the Friday, October 20th.
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
MIND GAMES #1 is the fifth entry into the METAVERSE.
I have just completed the initial handwritten draft of the book.
This initial draft is a rewrite of an earlier version I wrote years ago and could not find.
I have planned a trilogy for the character of Kayla Sanders in her own standalone title, but that may not be enough to garner her whole story.
As I continue to write the books of the METAVERSE several things are coming about: the complexity of the characters and their supporting casts, the complexity of the stories and what has yet to be told, the want of these characters to go onto greater things, and the endless stories that could be told.
However, right now I am concentrating on writing the next book as I write these stories one at a time. Ideas are just abound right now. I am even working on a book I have had trouble with in the past GRIMOIRE OF DARKNESS: THE PHOENIX HUNTER III.
Right now you can pre-order MIND GAMES #1 from your favorite online bookstores at books2read.com/MV5MG
