"A Plague 'O Both Your Houses"

Happy Belated New Year!

I planned on posting at least once before today, but like many across the country, I got sick. I'm not exactly sure what I had. The flu has been hitting America pretty hard, but I'm not sure I actually had influenza. I had a horrible respiratory thing, and then it went away on Christmas Eve and Day, and then I most definitely had a sinus infection knock me down hard.

I'm on the road to recovery, although this lingering cough is such a pain.

With the new year upon us, I've got some awesome things in the works.

Quixotic Publishing will be putting all three books in our Black-Eyed Kids series together into one boxed set. It's always sad finishing a series, although we're not done with this "world" yet. The Black-Eyed Kids trilogy is part of a larger series titled the Dark Projects. You all know how I love the paranormal, and I've got a conspiracy theorist streak in me, so this series is going to be a lot of fun.

Here's our boxed set:


I'm also up to my ears on edits of the first spin-off novel of Dark Projects, Gateway Mothman. This is a book that I've been thinking about for many years. In fact, I first posted about the Mothman back in 2005 here on the 'ol blog. It's hard to believe that it's taken this long to finally get this story out there.

The cover art is currently a work in progress, and I can't wait to see how the finished product looks:



How about you? What projects are you working on? What are some things you're looking to tackle in 2018? If you're like me, just trying not to get sick is priority #1.

The cover is cool so far! And congratulations on the boxed set.
Sorry you've been sick. At least you weren't miserable on Christmas.

Congrats on the box set. That cover looks like a great work in progress indeed. Had the stupid cough, hate it.

Good news about the boxed set. They sell well. The cover is shaping up nicely. I always liked the Mothman myth.

I will repeat sort of what I said on FB, I reallllly love the cover. The arch is dear to me, so there is that. Plus I love the title.

Sounds like you're on a great track writing-wise, and on a better road to good health. :)

Creepy cover! In a good way, of course. :)

I started the New Year with a cold, but fortunately not the flu. I love when books are set in the same universe as other in an author's repertoire. I like where the mothman cover is going. Best of luck with it all.

Pat Dilloway said...

Those look cool. Good to hear you're feeling better. I got a flu shot this year but even with that you can still get the flu. Or a cold.

The book set looks so cool!

I'm still coughing, which stinks! I hope you kick yours soon.

I went to college in Huntington and the Mothman was supposed to haunt the area a little north, up the Ohio River. I didn't realize it was such a big thing until long after I graduated.

Hope you feel better. No one in our family has had the flu yet. Hoping it stays that way. You have lots of projects going on. Wishing you the best. My plans are moving along, just slower than I'd thought they would.
