My big publishing announcement!

Well, it hasn’t been too long since I mentioned that I got the rights back to my trilogy of novels: Comes The Dark, Into The Dark, and Beyond The Dark.  Now I can reveal where those books are heading, and I couldn’t be more excited.  I have just signed the contracts to have them re-released via Permuted Press starting in early 2013!

Each book will have the “Dark Stories” as I dubbed them, that belong with each book, rather than in a separate book that only appears in the electronic version, like what happened in the past.  So tales related to all the characters that I originally wrote into the trilogy will be back where they belong, as bonus material in each printed book and e-book version.  I’m thrilled that everyone who reads these versions of the books will have the opportunity to get the full story on characters such as George, Megan, and Michael and everyone else.   Of note is that one of the Dark Stories that will appear at the end of Beyond The Dark is brand new, and another one of them is expanded beyond its rather short length to a full-sized short story.  So there will be a good amount of brand new content that no one has seen before as well.

The schedule of releases hasn’t been set as of yet, but I wanted to make an additional announcement at this time as well.  As I have babbled in the past, my plan has always been to produce two more novels that follow up the Dark trilogy, and my intention is to get rolling with those immediately after I have completed this last Dark story I am presently working on.  It will be my goal to complete the fourth book before the end of this year, and dive right into the fifth and final book of the saga after that.  So my hope is that they will find their way to market not long after the release of the final book in the trilogy.  Nothing else is for certain at this time, but I hope to be providing updates on this project as it goes forward, so as always, stay tuned!

    • Thanks Steven! It’s been a fun ride with things so far, but I am looking forward to diving back into this saga and letting the rest of the story be told.
