The base of the Silver Towers had a bit of a re-design, so that ate up some time. I also had to finish up my Tyranids for the no-humans/no-power-armor league my gaming group is doing. So there’s been foward motion in the project, just no time to write out all the documentation about it.
I also had another book come out. Last week Permuted Press just released a collection of short stories I wrote called The Junkie Quatrain. It’s four connected/ interwoven/ overlapping short stories set in the same post-apocalyptic world. I’ve been explaining it to people as 28 Days Later crossed with Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon. It adds up to a mid-sized novella, so it’s also very cheap.
Also, Amazon Studios is developing a film with the working title of Original Soldiers. It’s a sci-fi tale about human soldiers leaping into action when America’s droid army is shut down by an opponent. I’m one of five folks (well, four folks and a writing team) who were hired by Amazon to expand my pitch based off their logline into a full treatment.
So, between that and Ex-Communication, things might slow down a bit in the month of February. Just letting you all know now. The good news is, I’ll probably still keep working on things in my down time, so when I get to come back to this on a regular basis I’ll have enough material to go for quite a while.
In the weeks to come—the Silver Towers get finished, Imperial Bunkers, Grotesques and Wracks, a Thunderbolt, Kroot count as everything, a Gargant, and possibly even some Tyranid scenery...
Stick around. It’ll be worth it. Honest.
