So, right out of the gate: don't expect FM7 until very late in 2018 at the earliest.
I published 1,100 pages of content this year. If you are unsure: THAT'S A FUCKTON. I am in no place mentally to immediately go into working on FM7, not even close to it. Even parts of FM6 started to show some rust, especially the editing process. There are whole weeks and even months of 2016 that I just can't remember. It took a lot out of me and I need time to recover.
Of course, I'm a writer, so I will write because writing is just what I do, just not as obsessively and on different, smaller subjects.
So far the line up is Gush, my action adventure fantasy following Ullie and Merr in their attempt to survive the Great Course, two KH novellas, FINALLY getting around to the print on demand versions, King Henry Book Pack One which will be FM1-3 at a cheaper price than sold separately, probably starting FM7s school story (the last one!), and another project I'm going to leave super secret for now, but I'm incredibly excited about starting.
So...lots of stuff! Just smaller and at a slower pace as I recover. There will also be a personal issue continuing to play out this year. It's not me, I'm fine, but...shits not fun, yo! I'll continue to ask you to respect my privacy on the issue and to please be understanding as it plays out. Just know if there are weeks or even months where entertaining people doesn't seem that important to me, that will be the reason why.
Oh, the first novella is going to be called Assault on Dread Fortress Paine and will feature Eva and T-Bone POVs. Probably be 20 to 30k long if I had to guess. It will take place barely a day or two after FM6 and I think you can guess the plot from the title. The second will be two stories working together, a couple weeks after FM6. One will be called Welf Family Gala and the other will be called Price Family Shitshow. A T-Bone POV for the first as Vicky visits home and not sure if I'll stay with KH for the second or maybe try someone else.
As usual, whatever I write, it will be a damn good story!
