Writing Updates

Current Projects, May 2014

Here’s my list of Current Projects, updated from my last post in mid-March. This should give readers some idea of what’s in the pipeline and what will (hopefully) be released someday. This also explains why I’m so erratic when it comes to posting and being active, both here and on my assorted social media sites. A busy author means a distracted author!

Things that are contracted by a publisher will be noted; otherwise, assume that it hasn’t been sold yet or a publication date hasn’t been set yet.

Note that books that have been published are no longer on the list.

The Becoming Series

The Becoming: Descent
The Becoming Series, Book 5. Zombie fiction / post-apocalyptic thriller. The direct continuation of The Becoming: Under Siege. With the loss of their new lives, Cade and her companions are forced to try to pick up the pieces and go in search of a member of the group that has gone missing.
Status: First draft in progress.

The Becoming: Redemption
The Becoming Series, Book 6. Zombie fiction / post-apocalyptic thriller. This one picks up where Descent will leave off. Cade et al have the opportunity to save the world. I can’t say much more about this one until Descent is in the wild for readers to indulge in.
