The #PulpRev stands for a movement amongst a group of talented authors. The purpose is to return to the glory days of sci-fi/fantasy pulp when writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs cranked out story after story for their readers to enjoy.
With When The Gods Fell in its final production stages in e-book, print and audiobook formats (you can pre-order the Kindle edition prior to its Sept. 4th release date right now) I’m back to work writing the next story. Oh, and also currently overseeing the production of the audiobook version of Betrayals, Book 2 of the Jack Del Rio series as well, I might add.
The next project is a Steampunk Middle Grade/YA series. The series is The Timeless Series and the first book is fittingly titled, The Timeless. The cover is already finished and looks quite sharp. As of now, the series has been plotted out for six books.
It is set in the future and features Rock Congo, Captain of The Timeless, a ship that can sail in space, through the air and in the water with equal ease. Little John Singapore is Congo’s trusted First Mate and they are in pursuit of the villainess, Duchess Moran. A very beautiful woman with “a heart as black as the Devil Herself” says Singapore.
The Timeless can also travel in time and she will need to in order to help her Captain and crew track her prey across the eons.
The first book – I hope – will come out in late August. I hope to release the next book in the series every other month. The series became a reality after my grandson and I were talking about what kind of book he’d like to read if I wrote it. The Timeless was born from that discussion, which is why he gets to share the billing on the cover for all six of these stories.
The project after that is Firstborn’s Curse, a sneak preview of this can be found at the back of When The Gods Fell, and it is due out in December. Add to that the anthologies I’m slated to be a part of and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a new work with my name on it out every month for the rest of the year.
And that is how you do #PulpRev.
