irons in the fire update

Here’s what needs doin’…..

The Bram Gold Adventures. Tomorrow I’m going to start writing Feat of Clay, the sequel to 2019’s A Furnace Sealed. I’m hoping to do at least a thousand words a day every day moving forward. We’ll see if that works. In addition, I’ve written a Yolanda Rodriguez story “Unguarded” for Horns and Halos. Waiting for the galleys on that one. I also will be writing a novella that will be set in the same world as this, but I’m not sure if it’ll feature Bram or Yolanda or neither.

Dragon Precinct universe. After I’m done with Feat of Clay, the plan is to dive into Phoenix Precinct.

Collaborations with Dr. Munish K. Batra. Our first collaboration, Animal, is available for preorder, and we just sent our second, Pigman, off to our agent. We’re trying to figure out what our next one will be, either another standalone, or possibly a sequel to Animal.

Tales of Cassie Zukav, weirdness magnet. I still have to write “Ragnarok and a Hard Place” at some point, since it’s been crowdfunded (although you can still support it if you want!). Once that’s done, I’ll have enough stories to do a second Cassie collection, which will also be called Ragnarok and a Hard Place, and which will include “Down to the Waterline,” “William Did It,” “Rán for Your Life,” “Fish Out of Water,” “Seven-Mile Race,” “Behind the Wheel,” and “Ragnarok and a Hard Place,” plus all the vignettes I’ve written for Patreon, and maybe — maybe — a story that’s original to the collection as well.

Sooper seekrit tie-in project. This is a three-part project, and I’ve written the outline for the first portion and sent it to my editor. We’ll see if she likes it, and if so, if the licensor goes for it.

Turning the Tied. I’ve written my Ayesha story, “In Earth and Sky and Sea Strange Things There Be” for this charity anthology, and am waiting for editorial feedback.

Subterranean Blue Grotto Guide to Batman ’66. I’ve written my essay for Volume 2 of this series, which looks at “Hizzoner the Penguin”/”Dizzoner the Penguin.” Specifically, I wrote a transcript of the debate between the two mayoral candidates, Batman and the Penguin. Still waiting for galleys on that one. And then I’m hoping to contribute to Volume 3 — waiting for confirmation from the editor that I will be.

Tie-in projects. I have three possible tie-in projects in the hopper — two that I’ve been tentatively invited to work on, and I’m in the research phase for them (one is a novella, the other a novel), while the third is for a novel, for which I’ve sent in a proposal on spec.

Super City Cops. I’m still under contract to do four SCC novellas for Falstaff Books. Some day, I may even write them!

Star Trek Adventures. I’ve written the first draft of a Klingon-focused STA adventure called “Incident at Kraav III,” and am awaiting editorial feedback.

Mystery novel. My laughable goal for 2021 is to finally write this.

Patreon and Tor.com. For Patreon, I’ve mostly been good about getting up at least two TV reviews per month and have stayed steady with both vignettes and movie reviews the last couple months. We’ll see if I can keep it up. As for Tor.com, the Voyager Rewatches are continuing twice a week (though I’ll be taking the time between Christmas as New Year’s off, as will all of Tor.com save for time-specific reviews), the Discovery reviews will continue when each new episode comes out, and also on the 11th and 18th of December, I’ll be reviving “4-Color to 35-Millimeter: The Great Superhero Movie Rewatch” to take a look at The Old Guard and The New Mutants.

Other stuff. I have some other ideas percolating in my brain meats, plus Wrenn and I still want to launch our nifty new thing soon…..
