Looking to the Future

 As a writer you're always thinking about the next project, the next story, the next promotion. As a writer you want to keep the stories coming. Every author works differently in this regard. For me I have my projects planned for 2021.

Evolution Man: A new retro sci-fi series. 

Captain Hawklin and the Invisible Enemy

Eclipse: A Novel in the Serena Darkwood Adventures

The second installment of the very popular Pulp Reality, featuring a number of authors and artists.

Plus two projects that I am co-creating with good friends, and I'm writing a short story of a friend's super Popular character (more on those as I'm allowed to post about them.)

Yet, with all the forthcoming projects for the New Year, a writer can't help but think about the future. Soon my Captain Hawklin series will end, and next year I will write and publish in 2022 the last part of my Origin Trilogy and though I'm planning a sequel trilogy, I'm also thinking about some new things to write. I've been wanting to return to the old west, and write a high fantasy/sword and sorcery tale. There are so many stories to write and so little time in which to do them.

2021 will be a test for me, with so many things to produce, I might be biting off more than I can chew... it will be a challenge I'm up for. I hope you'll join me in this... otherwise, I will do it all alone.

Out with the old and in with the new. The Captain Hawklin Adventure series has a worldwide audience and fans from all walks of life. I created the series in 2012 as a way to fuel my desire for pulp stories. (Little did I know there was a new movement called New Pulp springing up). I had no idea the series would get the attention it now has, and I'm humbled and excited for the chance to share his exploits with many of his Crusaders.

I feel now that when I published his third adventure "The Subterranean Empire" in 2015, I dropped the ball not only on the cover (Let's face it, it's not my favorite) and on some portions of the editing. Let's just say since 2015, the way Stormgate Press produces books has changed for the better. 

I'm happy to announce that the book has a new lease on life, with a brand new cover by Damián Avilés, who has provided covers for other Captain Hawklin books, "The Shadow Men" and "The Lost Land" as well as the cover for Pulp Reality #1, which also includes art by Damián for my Zane Carrington story inside that issue.

I'm sure you'll agree the new cover is outstanding. I want to thank Damián for his incredible work, as usual.

With a new cover, comes a Brand New edit, tightening the story up, fixing some issues as well as tweaking the story to fit in with the "Hawklin Lore" (when the book was written, the continuity was still very much in flux). 

So, if you haven't had a chance to read Captain Hawklin and the Subterranean Empire... the new edits, and cover will be available within the next week, on amazon in paperback and ebook.

I'd like to thank Bobby Nash, Brian K Morris, Rick Bradley and Kellie Austion for helping me launch the inaugural issue of Pulp Reality. The five of us had a great time laughing, talking about our work, and the very first issue of what I hope will be many issues of Pulp Reality. For more information about the series click here
