Updates and Delays
10,000 Dawns: Poor Man's Iliad (formerly titled 10,000 Dawns: Anthology) won't be coming out this year. The simple reality is I have too many books in the pipeline, and they need their own room to breathe. I've decided to delay the book so that it can get the launch it deserves, not to mention to give myself more time to edit it, and the other writers more time to fine tune their stories. This book is going to be an excellent anthology, and I'm really excited for everyone to read it, but I don't want it to get lost in a flood of other releases. It will get it its moment, but I'm going to do it right.
That being said, I do have three other books in the works, coming out soon! So don't worry, plenty of reading will be coming your way. Two of the books are novels set in the 10,000 Dawns universe (one of them the print version of the serial novel, the other all new!) and the third is a funny little book I Kickstarted about myself where I'll be poking fun at me. As always, thank you to all the Kickstarter backers who made it possible.
Since "Poor Man's Iliad" has been delayed, I'll also be bringing back the Artist Showcase feature on my social meida, previewing some of the art from the book! You can consider this excellent piece by LuLu Lin of Cornelia Carthage the first part of that. You can find more of Lulu Lin's art at: http://lululin.com/
