Sometime yesterday morning I passed 600 sales on my book Devil’s Gambit. I launched the book mid December of 2014 and while sales took a couple of months to build, by March things really took off. Every day I make any sales feels like a small miracle.
Recently I had was able to confirm that some story rights were available to me for an existing piece I’ve had out there making its rounds through Hollywood. One of the main characters in that book factors heavily in the sequel to Devil’s Gambit the upcoming Devil’s Ante. It was a tough call but I decided to work on this sort of prequel (it actually runs almost parallel to the events in Devil’s Gambit) prior to finishing Devil’s Ante for a couple of reasons. One I really like the story in Reliance and secondly, I really like character I’ll be introducing into the world. My goal with my books has always been to create a series of stories that revolve around a number of characters who come and go and have lives of their own.
Now the plan is to release, Reliance by the end of September and then Devil’s Ante by the first of December. Life’s ups and downs have pretty much nixed any possibility of another motorcycle travel book in the near future. The best I can hope for ride wise is a research trip sometime in October to the National Museum of the United States Air Force who will hopefully have their new hanger built by then. BTW: If you are close to Wright Patterson and you love aircraft, you owe it to yourself to visit this fantastic museum.
