Hi! Long time, no blog. There's a good reason though: I've been busy actually writing books. Recently there seems to be a real uptick in people asking about Meta Book 3 (no, it doesn't have a real name yet) and when it'll be out so I thought I'd offer an update.
Currently the goal is to get book 3 out there in the fall, which right now looks like it'll probably be October-ish. I don't have too much to share plot-wise right now, other than as of right now the story picks up a few days after the end of The Second Wave. This book looks like it'll be longer than Meta and The Second Wave and although I'm hoping to keep writing more Meta books for awhile, this one will be the conclusion to an unofficial trilogy in a lot of ways, i.e. lots of mysteries will be explained and lots of set-ups get paid off.
One of the other questions I get a lot is when The Second Wave will be available as an audiobook. Recording Meta was way harder than I anticipated which put The Second Wave on the backburner for awhile. I considered having someone else read it, but that seemed kinda silly since I have the recording equipment and people seemed to like the way I read Meta. As of right now, the plan is to record The Second Wave right after Book 3 goes to the editor in the next couple of months. I'll need a break from writing by then anyway and that way taking time to do the recording won't sidetrack Book 3.
There's two other projects in pipeline too, one which I've mentioned a few times that is a sci-fi, alien abduction mystery-type thing and a short story or novella set in the Meta universe. The first draft of the mystery novel has been done for awhile but needs some serious work. The Meta novella (Metavella?) I have some really fun ideas about too. I'm really, really hoping to get both out around the end of 2015.
