Steve’s Update 7/24/2019

(This column is posted at and Steve’s Tumblr.  Find out more at my newsletter.)

Hey gang, still debating these updates. Starting to think they’re more suited for my newsletter or monthly. Any thoughts?

So what have I done since last time?

  • Way With Worlds: Still working on this, but I’ve had delays as it’s just been so darned busy. Won’t make too much of a difference in release, since I don’t keep these to tight schedules, but just a note if you follow my books intently.
  • Seventh Sanctum Book: Prereaders have had great feedback on readability, so I expect to get that soon – say middle of next. Then diving into editing! I got the final editor lined up, still looking at November.
  • Sequel to “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet:” The plotting has come along and I worked out the big beats, and it’s going to be great. Get ready for a lot of cool stuff, humor, darker turns, and observations on our tropes about chosen ones. Also, someone will solve a magical puzzle by shooting it.

What’s next?

  • Way With Worlds: Trying to get back to working on it regularly. I expect to be able to do so this weekend.
  • Seventh Sanctum Book: Getting back the book, hopefully!
  • Sequel to “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet:” Deep dives on the character arcs, then if all goes well, fleshing out the plot in detail!
