Well, I’ve got a few things to report this week, but the most exciting is the new cover for my next book, Empire’s Advance. This is the second book in the Corelian Guard series and follows the exploits of Hunter’s characters as things take a turn for the worse. We hope to get the book out sometime in the next two weeks so stay tuned.
Here’s the cover.
Our cover model is the lovely and very talented Emzilla. When Emz saw the cover she said, “Let me play with it; I can make it better.” She did. This cover is her work and you can find her and some of her work on Facebook here:
Okay, second thing to report. I didn’t get a lot of writing done this week. Here’s why. The results of my regular check-up got me in trouble. The Doctor said my kidneys are in trouble and I’m borderline diabetic. Okay, so I have a caffeine and chocolate addiction. The reality is, I rarely drink anything except coffee and I eat far too many sweets. “I’m a writer, dammit; it what we do. Hehehe)
So, the upshot of this is a drastic change in diet. I can do this. I went off coffee cold turkey and have been a zombie with a headache and an attitude for days, but there is light. Today I awoke feeling good, fewer aches and pains than normal, and no headache. Pass the mint tea and stand back, she’s reviving. J

This week had ups and down for writing. On the upside, we have a cover for Empire’s advance and the editor is nearly finished. Life is good.
On the downside, I didn’t make my goal of ten thousand words written; I barely managed eight.
So, the target for next week is another 15K. Wish me luck.
