Rider's Journey is moving along. I am hopeful to have it completed by July. After it is done, I will most likely work on the first Unfinished Universe novel. Thief will come after and my rough target for it is midyear 2015.

I am working on Rider's Journey and at the moment my inclination is to make this set of novels a trilogy rather than the originally planned series. I'll know for certain by the time RJ is done. Thief is simmering on the back burner and will probably remain there for some time. I believe that I will work on another novel after RJ, but I'm not sure which. What would you like to see next?

All of the various editions of Wizard are now available. If anyone has any problem getting the novel, please let me know and I will look into it.
I am working on both Rider's Journey and the so far untitled first novel in the Unfinished Universe series. I am most likely going to focus exclusively on Rider's Journey in a few weeks, but am not certain of that at this point.
Due to the delays in my writing schedule, I have decided to move the promotional drawing from April 13 to August 13. Official rules are here.

Wizard is now available on Amazon. I have uploaded the files for Kobo and it should be available there within a day or two. I am still working on the files for the iBookstore and Nook -- both require specific epubs -- and will post when I have uploaded the files.
I have started blocking in the chapters of Thief and will be working on it throughout the year. As my track record with December releases is poor, I will set a soft date for it at January, 2015. I will make regular updates on my progress here.
However, I will not be working on Thief exclusively in the first part of the year. I am going to work to publish another book in mid-year. This will either be Rider's Journey or the first Unfinished Universe novel.
I welcome any feedback or questions on Wizard. If posted in the comment section, I will respond here.

Wizard is complete. I'm going to prepare the files over the next several days and expect that the novel will be available on Amazon by the 30th and on Kobo just shortly after.

An explanation for the delay of Wizard: About seven months ago my middle son found a job and moved out on his own. While this was an otherwise fortituitous event, it also meant that the number of persons available to provide full time assistance to my youngest son, who has been totally disabled since birth, was reduced to one -- me. While at first I was optimistic that I would be able to maintain my normal writing pace, this has not proven the case and I am convinced now that this will not improve in the short term. At best, I now expect to be able to produce only one novel in 2014 and I'm not sure at this point which it will be.
