My Projects-Updated

Illness, deadlines for SIEGE, and a death in the family pretty much obliterated my writing schedule for my new novels at the end of 2011.  But life happens and you have to adjust accordingly.  One of the most difficult things I've had to adjust to in the last year was setting aside a work in progress to meet a deadline for Tor on one of the three books in the trilogy.

With SIEGE now put to bed, my writing schedule is my own until another one of my projects gets picked up by Tor or another publisher.  In the meantime, I plan to keep working on the series I have decided to self-publish, a few short story collections, and a standalone zombie novel (I may or may not self-publish).  I have also thrown in a YA novel that I am working on with fellow author Kody Boye.  We made some amazing progress when we first started, but have put the project aside because he is dealing with some medical issues.  We hope to be back on track very soon.

So here is my updated projected writing schedule (subject to change, of course).
