Phoenix Rising - Book 4 of the New Glasgow War Series

I just completed the first draft of the book. I started editing it right away. I am trying to release in early February. The story continues with Duncan and Dietler engaging a new enemy. The book is twice as long as any of the first three in the series. I hope to have it availible for beta readers next week. We will see how that goes.

I still have to come up with a cover though. I am trying to decide on one. I am trying to look for something interesting.

The New Glasgow War Omnibus is live on Amazon

I sent out an announcement earlier about the omnibus edition but was a bit too early. It seems Amazon didn't like the paperback cover and it took me four tries to get it right. But now, it is live on Amazon.

Aaron did the cover for me again with the image from Book 3. It was my favorite that he has done so far. So far the kindle version has done rather well. It is $2.99 and includes books one through three of the series.

I am hard at work on book four of the series and have now expanded it to embrace nine total books in the series. The plan it to release monthly. I suspect that plan will fail at some point in this process. it means that I need to have a finished draft of book 4 before the end of next week. And for it to have a cover that I haven't talked to Aaron about.

Anyway, progress is being made. For the Alternate History fans out there, don't worry, Thomas Devareaux will be back. I am working on finishing book 3 of the series by this summer. In the fall, I plan on launching a new Alt History series based in the Seven Years war following a freikorps.

Anyway, Happy New Year to one and all. I hope 2018 treats us well.
