Both of those novels will be available in brand-new paperback form by the end of April. They’ve been out of paper-print since early 2011, so I’m happy they’ll be back on shelves, especially since I know that each book was getting increased academic attention—and professors can’t assign books that students can’t actually buy.
As far as new works, I’ll be releasing War & Mir, Volume II: The Darkold. I’d originally hoped to get Volume II out last year, but the entirely unexpected death of my sister pretty much destroyed my ability to care about anything other than taking care of my family. When the Volume III comes out, I’ll collect all three volumes into what I’m calling War & Mir: The Unified Edition, and I’ll be dedicating it to her.
My other task for new work is screenplays. Director Ernest Dickerson, best known for his work on The Walking Dead, The Wire, and Juice, is a good friend of mine who wants to bring The Coyote Kings to the big screen. He’s kindly offered to help me get some scripts seen. So for 2013-2014, my main literary goal is to write as many screenplays as possible, and hopefully to turn some of them into graphic novels, too.
That’s one of the things I emphasize in my Building An Online Presence for Writers class – how to do things efficiently and get the most use out of the time one spends poking around on the web getting distracted by cat pictures.
