If you'd like to be a supportive fan, you're invited to this, which is a time to buy Book 9 on Kindle. We're trying to do it all at once because it might affect how the book is ranked on Amazon. If you see it up on Kindle and can't possibly wait that long, I understand. Or just read the preview. It'll probably be pretty long.
The print version should be out shortly after that. I'm not sure exactly when, but I'll post here when I see it up.

The copy-editing is done for Book 9, and I'm busy implementing the various fixes. On average, my manuscripts go through at least three rounds of editing, one with a paid professional copy-editor, to get it up to the shape you see it in. Yes, there are still typos. I just try to keep them to a minimal.
From here it goes to layout, where I get the eBook file ready and lay out the .pdf version for the print book. Both jobs are a little tedious, but I'm used to them. I also have to write the description on the back cover (that doesn't spontaneously appear on the back of books), any other inside material, and decide on a cover image with my graphic designer, which always takes way longer than we both think it should.
Estimated publication date for Book, tentatively titled The Tribulations of George Wickham the Younger, is mid-July, which means the earliest you could actually get a paper copy in the mail is late July/East August. Book 10's roll out will hopefully be December.
In the meantime you can buy and read my thriller novella, the Redundant Man, here.

I apologized for my delayed post, but things have been pretty crazy for me. Book 9, tentatively titled, "The Trials of George Wickham the Younger," is on schedule for a July release. It is currently in copyediting. As usual, you can find active discussions and me being generally more responsive on the Facebook Group Page, where we currently have a contest open to submit a cover picture for book 9 and get your name in the book. So check it out!
