All told, we're lookin at around 8 books in total to complete the story. That's not an arbitrary guess; Ive outlined the entire story and it will take at least 8, though not more than ten--hopefully. But it all starts with Book 1 which--barring holidays, natural disasters (a hurricane and an earthquake in New England in the same month? WTF?) and any other work-related distractions--will be done and sent in by the end of the year; from there, its up to the editor gods.
And to update on The Forvian Sphere, which was supposed to be out this month:it prob wont be out till mid-December now due to an editorial backup over at Spore Press. Ill keep you posted.
In the meantime, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Ill be in South Lowell tonight 6-8 making my rounds; Ill be the one dressed as a shadow so you might not be able to see me; just crow like a rooster and Ill find ya if you're in the neighborhood; (just don't howl like a werewolf, there'll be too much of that going around already).
Here's a little vid to mark the occasion; it used to be a fav of mine as a kid, now...well...here it is:
