About An Almost Tangent

Hello readers. I’m sorry to say that there will be no new chapters from Infinite Limits again this week. But that should all change next Saturday because I’m well on my way to publishing book two, An Almost Tangent. I have my proof copy for the print version ordered already, and I’m just left to format the eBook version. That should be published sometime this next week and the print version not long after that. If you want to keep up to date on when exactly they come out, sign up for my email newsletter right here.

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with one last sneak peek of An Almost Tangent before full publication. This time it’s the back of the book blurb. Now, if you haven’t already read book one of Infinite Limits, The Asymptote’s Tail, there are some spoilers in this blurb, so don’t read on if you don’t want to read them. You’ve been warned. 🙂

An Almost Tangent

The walls between Outlands Five and Six have been destroyed, forcing the two to merge into a third, new world. In An Almost Tangent, book two of the Infinite Limits tetralogy, we follow six new points of view and one old as they each deal with unique consequences of that merger.

The owners of Inland face a choice. Would it be more profitable to resegregate Five and Six or to allow the two worlds to continue to intermingle? Lord Walker has his opinion on the matter, and the other members of the Fortune Five have theirs, but in the meantime, they all still have the chaos of riots and protests throughout all the Outlands to deal with.

In Outland One we experience firsthand the life of a protector in training. In Two we follow Tillie, a university student, as she unwittingly joins a protest movement on campus. In Three we meet a no name movie crew, attempting to become famous with their first independent film. While Five and Six bring us one never before introduced character’s point of view and that of an old friend, both to explore life in the poorest worlds—now world—of Outland.

Leaving us with none other than Ansel Server. Having lost her mother to the wrath of the protectors, she’s left only to fight for the life of her father—who was imprisoned by those very same protectors. The Scientist promised she’d help, Ansel’s dead set on making sure they get to him in time, and the only way to find out what happens is to join us for An Almost Tangent.

I hope you’re as excited about the release as I am, readers. Less than two weeks to wait. Until next time.

An Almost Tangent Cover and Table of Contents

If you’ve been following along on the blog, you probably already know that last Saturday the final chapter of The Asymptote’s Tail (book 1 of Infinite Limits) was made available here on the website. So as you might expect, I don’t have any new chapters to share today. Sorry.

I do, however, have some news to report about An Almost Tangent (book 2 of Infinite Limits). Not only have I been hard at work editing and formatting the print version, but I’ve also made some progress on designing a cover for the novel. If all goes to plan, I should be ordering my proof copy in the next week or so and publishing the print and eBook versions shortly after. Yay!

Until then, to tide you eager fans over (I’m sure there are tons of you, lol), I’ll share the table of contents for An Almost Tangent and my progress on the front cover so far. Enjoy, be intrigued, and let me know what y’all think in the comment section here.

My Very First “Fan” Art

Yesterday I was presented with my very first piece of “fan” art. I keep putting “fan” in quotations, though, because I want to be realistic. The person who made the art didn’t do it because they were a fan of my writing. I don’t think they’ve even had enough time to read the entire novel, to be honest.

No, I’m sure they did it because the “p” in “Asymptote” was poorly aligned with the sky on my version of the cover–as I’ve said before and will say again, I’m no artist, sorry for that, hopefully the writing’s better to make up for it–but still, I appreciate this artist’s effort, and I’m going to present the result here as “fan” art from someone who may become a full blown fan–no quotes–some day.

After all that, here’s a link to the thread where the artist showed me their work, here’s a link to the entire post that got that conversation started, and here’s the art in question (you can click on it to see a bigger version):

Beautiful, isn’t it?

Happy Tuesday, everyone. And come back again soon now, ya hear.

Long Time No Post

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but remember this is not a blog, I’ve been hard at work writing short stories, editing them, and sending them out to magazines to inevitably get rejected. That’s good for you, though, because as soon as they make it out the other end of the rejection machine, they’ll pop up right here for you to read and question the sanity of the editors who refused to publish them.

Beyond that, we’re working hard toward creating the cover art for the Asymptote’s Tail, and as soon as that’s ready, we’ll start sharing the novel, one chapter at a time, with you here on this website. So stick around, sign up for email notifications at the top right of this page so you won’t miss anything, and get excited. It’s coming people, I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I have creating it.
