In Non-Fiction News:
Build Better Worlds: An Introduction to Anthropology for Game Designers, Fiction Writers, and Filmmakers is in it’s final stages (we have been reediting it from the textbook version to make it more accessible to the general public for the last ten weeks) and we will be launching it on Feb 1st.
In Book 5 News:
The Children of AEIS (CotGM Book 5) is well on it’s way now (hit 25k words this week) and will be my main focus for the January version of NaNoWriMo. At the moment I am shooting for an April 17th publication but this book is turning out to be even bigger than I imagined (in a good way) and may well top the aprox. 600 pages of Serah of the Runners so it could get pushed back some.
In Audiobook News:
Mimi of the Nowhere is finished recording. It is now in editing it. I am shooting for a January 17th release of the audiobook of Mimi of the Nowhere. With the other’s following on its heels.
In Anthropology in 10 or Less News:
Two new episodes of Anthropology in 10 or Less are in post production and coming in the next few weeks with scripts mostly finished for 2 more episodes (probably released Feb). The goal is to put at least 2 episodes out a month for 2021 and possibly more if they gain some traction in views and patreon support. The more time I have, the more I will make.
More updates as I have them. I hope you have all had a wonderful start to the new year so far.
Given the state of the world, I have decided to make Upon Stilted Cities: The Winds of Change free on Prolific works for the time being. Basically you can go to the link below and get a copy (and sign up for my newsletter if you like but it’s optional). I hope you enjoy book 2! Remember to rate and review if you choose to pick it up.
What the title says. If you enjoyed Mimi of the Nowhere, or just want to check out another great entry to the series, check out Book 2 of the Chronicles of the Great Migration, Completely Free on Kobo books until June 16th.
The Children of Gaia won’t stop until every last walking city is destroyed…
The city of Langeles is rubble, resources are dwindling, and storm systems are larger than ever before. The people of Manhatsten are in great danger, and they don’t even know it yet.
Life in the city hasn’t changed much in the forty years since Mimi joined her telepathic sisters of The Order of the Eye, but the winds of change are blowing, and their enemy, the Children of Gaia wait in the shadows to turn the city to ash. At the center of it all is one man, a man as ancient as the city of Manhatsten itself, a man designated Runner 17. A man who is more then he knows, and maybe the only one who can save the city and the rest of humanity.
