Hello Gentle Readers,

Given the frequency with which I’m getting update requests, I feel its time to put everyone at ease about book three.

I’m still working on it. This will remain the case unless I die…

…or fall into a coma

…or lose my hands

…something really terrible will have to happen.

No, the manuscript is not as far along as I’d like. I’m about 60% of the way through the first draft.

Now, I know–I KNOW!

…Months ago, I said I was half way through the first draft.  The reason for such little progress since is that I re-wrote the whole damn thing. Trust me, this was out of necessity.

Okay, so why is it taking me so long regardless of rewrites?

Well, I hate to blame my shortcoming on innocent children…

I said I hate to do it, didn’t say I wouldn’t.

Currently, I am the loving father of two babies under two years of age. Okay technically Xander will turn two tomorrow, but at the time of this writing this statement is true. Lorelei is almost eight months.

These two are a handful.

I try to get as much time in the chair writing as possible, but if you’re a parent you already know I spend most of my days operating at some degree of sleep deprivation while desperately trying to accomplish the goal of showering at regular enough intervals as to not smell homeless.

All that said, you–Gentle Patient Readers–deserve something for your support! An update worth your time! So, here is a look at the cover art for the finale!

Now, I’ve redacted the word that comes after “The Never” in the title. Why?  I learned with The Never Paradox not to commit to a working title in the middle of the first draft.

Well folks, that is all I’ve got for now. I appreciate your patience and support. I can’t wait to get this book done for all of you!

  1. Thanks for the update. I have listened to both books about 3 times each, if not more, and each time is like the first. Really can’t wait for book 3. (selfishly waiting)

  2. As a parent of three, I fully understand. That being said, even after three children, I STILL have no patience, so I’ll not pretend to be patiently waiting. But waiting I am, and will continue to do so until the story is ‘right’ …. and then I’ll scarf it up and devour it!!
    Just want to say thanks for these intriguing stories, and I look forward to the next one.

  3. lol have to admit having been a stay at home parent before I did wonder how you were going to do it. I’ll just keep hoping you don’t lose your hands or go into a coma etc. and get excited when it does come out.

  4. Read your first two books…which were a lot of fun! I’m a 64 year old grandma who enjoys escaping once in a while (or maybe a lot) so I’m really looking forward to the next installation.

    1. I got another one: “the never finished”. There might be a coma in there too…
      I’m glad we got an update though.

  5. It’s time, time for you to tell the family that your leaving and you won’t be back until the book is done.😉. Seriously your very talented how you weave a great story. I believe you have the potential to be in this generation’s top one percentile of authors. Best wishes

  6. That you can get any writing done with 2 under 2 is astounding! I agree with Kelly’s comment, not only do you weave a great story but as a reader of sci fi fantasy for 40+ years it is delightful to read something so original and unique. I await the final book eagerly but would rather have it done right than rushed. Good Luck in all your endeavors.

  7. Hey, just out of curiosity will you still be using the Beta readers from The Never Paradox? I would love to still be included on the list!

    Obviously Love the series and have read multiple times, can’t wait for the third!

    Hope everything is going well with you and your family of course, Good luck with everything!
