The Colliding Empires Update

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Colliding Empires short story FRIENDS and FOES is complete. I'm just working on edits right now. I've also begun on the next story in the series, FAULT and BLAME. If I keep on my current schedule, I'll have stories 4 and 5 done by the end of the month.

I should also note that I won't be releasing it immediately. I'm going to finish the rest of the volume 1 collection first, stories 1-5. This is more of a marketing strategy than anything. I want to be prepared in a release schedule for all the stories that allows me to get the word out as well as have some cover reveals, etc. While I'm glad that some people have really enjoyed my stories, the sales and downloads have been fairly limited. For the rest of my stories in this series, I want to generate some buzz before releases. Once they are all written, I can plan out the releases and allow myself time to get the word out on a broader level. I'll be doing the same thing for the final five stories in the series as well.

In other news. . .I'm working right along in various short stories and doing the planning for a few different novels right now. I hope to begin some aspect of planning, outlining, or writing on these works alongside The Colliding Empires stories. That's all for now. Thanks for following along with my progress!
