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).
The plan for ODYSSEY STAR is to write standalone stories and trilogies. These stories will make the overall narrative of the series. Not sure how the saga will be setup timeline wise but they will all fit together somehow.
Already 3 books are set in the series based off three separate main characters: Douglas Harley, Starragaar, and Fiona Harley. The three books are also set in three different time periods decades apart.
The three books in progress are:
I am working hard on these books for Galaxia Press / Rising Dragons Publishing along with other projects. I have many tales in the works. Now to get them out.
INTO THE UNKNOWN is scheduled for release this September.
The UNTITLED FIONA HARLEY BOOK now has a title. It will be called SENTINEL PRINCESS. Not sure when it or STAR SAMURAI will be published. Likely to come out in 2019. But we will see how things go.
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...
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.
2018 will show the releases of Grimoire of Darkness, Order of the Blue Moon: A Moontripper Novel, Arcanum: Return of the Dark Sisters, and Mind Games: Continue On.

I am always updating this site with the latest information on my books and what it to come.
Currently this site is being overhauled in design and function.
If you look in the menu under books, you can see that the Heroes + Villains section is missing
That is really only temporary.
It will soon be Intrepid Heroes instead.
I am fixing the pages for the books in the Odyssey * Star and Southern Paranormals sections.
In the future there will be articles on who and what are in these sagas.
Likely the links will lead to other weebly sites on here so that you can more specialized info on them.
As for the progress on the writing:
Southern Paranormals: Mind Games is 3 chapters deep.
Odyssey * Star: Chronicles i: The Alpha Conflict is 5 chapters deep.
There are most certainly other books in the works for these sagas as the afore mentioned Intrepid Heroes sagas along with some other works that are there that do not fit into any of the above.
You can find the first three Southern Paranormals books at your favorite ebook retailers.
Working on putting First Moonlight into paperback form shortly.
I have a few books in the process of being written.
On Southern Paranormals: Arcanum... Getting ready to begin the edits of the book.
ON Southern Paranormals: Mind Games... I am currently on chapter 2 of the book
On Southern Paranormals: Grimoire of Darkness... I am in the planning stages
On Odyssey * Star: Chronicles I: The Alpha Conflict... I am on chapter three
On Odyssey * Star: Diviniti... I am on Chapter 2
On Odyssey * Star: Star Samurai... I am in the planning process of starting the story.
On Odyssey * Star: Starfyre Rose... I am on Chapter 4, but may rewrite the book
On Intrepid Heroes: White Knight... I am on Chapter 3, I think. Been awhile on the working of this book.
I have scheduled books to follow a certain pattern throughout the next couple of years. Reaching March 2019, so far. I am sure that things will go on further. This is all I have for now. There will be collections of books in each of the series as well.
Each series is set for now.
Southern Hospitality monthly in the online magazine Darkness Within eZine.
These titles are not set in stone. But I believe them to be set up for some time. I believe in the story lines that I am working on. The Epilogue and interludes in these books will set up certain things that can happen down the line. Somethings may have far reaching effects in their series. There are more characters and stories to come in each of these series. Each series will expand and grow into their own wild and crazy universes with the possibility to cross over from one universe to the other.
I have plenty of stories within me to keep these series going for a long time.
Also, as I continue writing these series, I will find a way to get them put onto their own websites connected to this one.
The first storyline of Odyssey * Star starts with the book The Genesis Bond and ends with The Exodus Code. In between those two books becomes the Search for the Exodus Code part 1, 2, & 3. Part one takes place in the first book of Star Samurai. Part two into the first book of Diviniti. Part three heads into the one shot book, Starfyre Rose. These three books are the stories in which Shadaar and his army search out the legendary Exodus Code pieces. There are three pieces spread out in the unlikeliest of locations.
How does the Exodus Code work?
That will not be found out until the book Odyssey * Star: The Exodus Code.
Until, then, keep watch of Odyssey*Star.
Odyssey * Star: Starfyre Rose is about the origins of the elven maiden space pirate. We are introduced to her family in this book. This book is a one-shot book, right now. There is the posdibility of a trilogy, but the book was only planned as an one-shot book. Starfyre Rose shows up in multiple books playing rather large roles at times.
I have written four chapters of the book and currently on the fifth. The book is not due out until February 2018
Odyssey Star * The Genesis Bond is into the fifteenth chapter as it nears the climax of the story. This will leadbooks and series into a larger story that is meant to introduce and cross over multiple
Odyssey Star: Samurai Star is nearing the fifteenth chapter as well.
Odyssey * Star: Diviniti has been completely written, but needs to be typed up. Though, the book is not due out until November. This is either going to be a trilogy or a series of books, not sure at the moment. But the books will tie into the larger narrative of the shared universe.
