It’s been a while since I posted. Apologies. I’ve been busting hump on the new novel, which I would describe in technical terms as NEXTGEN! No, it’s not sci-fi. It’s straight fantasy, but it has a lot of parts, a lot of depth, and a lot of humor. Don’t worry, though. Fans of RC will love it, as it has much common with my previous trilogy. It’s audacious, loaded with action, and imagination. Right now, it’s in the hands of my first two, closest readers. After their feedback and some possible changes, it’ll go to the beta reader team. You haven’t been forgotten!
In the meantime, I’m finally able to reveal some exciting news that has been a long time in the making. Producers have optioned the New Chronicles of Robinson Crusoe for a potential TV series! Woohoo!
This is a very exciting development and I’d love to give out a ton of details, but we’re in the mum stage as the producers implement their plan for media domination. I love their vision, however, as well as their passion. They see the same potential in the project as I do and are setting out to put together a team up to the task to bringing it to the small screen. When I’m able to post more information, I will definitely let you all know.
Lastly, I would be very remiss if I didn’t congratulate the narrator of the RC books, Malk Williams for winning a prestigious industry award. He earned the Earphones Award for his narration of Arrowood by Mick Finlay! He’s also the narrator of the Mortal Engines series by Philip Reeve. I couldn’t be prouder of him. Best of all, he’s putting the finishing touches on the audiobook for Robinson Crusoe 2246 right now. It should be done and available in the next few weeks. I’ll send out another mailer when it’s ready.
Outside of all that great news, we’re transitioning into a beautiful fall here in Minnesota. The weather is dropping, the trees are turning gold and red, and the kids are back in school, allowing me more time to write. Looking forward to getting this one done and out there. Thanks to the best readers everywhere for their patience and passion.
As always, I wish you good reading!
