THESE DEAD LANDS: IMMOLATION Update and Concept Art III

Hey crew,

Been lying low in the trenches as of late, but managed to churn out the final part of THESE DEAD LANDS: IMMOLATION to the tune of over 180,000 words, which is one fat book. Scott Wolf is interested in halving it, which would keep print production costs down. I’m considering it, but we haven’t made a final determination yet.

As of now, the product has been proofed by the erstwhile Dianna Cox, and it’s currently in the able hands of Lynn McNamee, who is my editor of choice, since she’s ex-Army and isn’t put off by acronyms and military maneuvers in general. She’s also direct and to the point, which is something I like. For those of you who have read the works of Keith Blackmore, she has done many of his titles as well. I anticipate the product being returned to me within a week’s time, after which we’ll import the corrections. Scott and I will gather around and do a final salience review and whatever rewrites are indicated, and then it will go back to Lynn for a second once-over and final proof. Without having seen the first edits yet, I don’t know how much work lies in store for us, but I remain optimistic for an April release. The tremendously talented Marc Lee continues to work out the cover, and I present his latest work for your perusal here.

That’s all for now, other than to mention I’ll have a flurry of releases coming up, along with IMMOLATION: THE LAST TOWN #3, DEAD IN THE CITY OF ANGELS, with Jarret Liotta, and the post-EMP adventure story CHARGES, which will eventually pave the way for its sequel, RAVAGERS. And near the end of the year, EARTHFALL 2 should trundle across the post-nuclear landscape, bringing Andrews, Mulligan, Leona, Laird, Jordello, and some new SCEV team members into contact with one of the last bastions of human society. Don’t worry–Rachel Andrews gets left in Harmony this time.

And, of course, THE RETREAT series is in motion again, with Joe McKinney doing his magic as I write this, and Craig DiLouie has already plotted release #4.

Out here.

    Agree with Mike really looking forward to all the new releases in particular Immolation. Will be like Christmas for me when Immolations is released. Stay well Stephen.
