I have only myself to blame. Well, I could blame others, but it would do no good.
My original plan was to have Iron Fist of the Oroqs out by the first of June. It took me longer than I anticipated to get the manuscript to my editor. She turned it around quickly, but I haven’t had a chance to go over it again yet. My day job has been kicking the crap out of me with a project that is just snowballing into a disaster of epic proportions, so by the time I get home, I haven’t the energy to engage my brain…and that’s on the days I DON’T work late and/or bring work home. I’m even having to bring work along with me on my “vacation”.
Naturally, the delays in Iron Fist of the Oroqs are going to cause Zack Jackson and the Cult of Athos to be delayed as well, since I don’t want to work on that while Iron Fist of the Oroqs sits there, mocking me.
I’m not going to set a release date for either yet. Hopefully, by the end of next month, things will calm down at work and I’ll be able to muster some energy and finish Iron Fist of the Oroqs so I can then proceed to revise Zack Jackson and the Cult of Athos and get that book to my editor.
