I realize it’s been a while since I posted anything. The Arklight story is coming to a very exciting end. I just crested about 90,000 words and am writing the final few chapters. Titled “Arklight: Task Force Crusader”, this third and final installment of the trilogy will be significantly longer than the previous two books. There’s still much to do in order to get this one done, but I’m hoping to spend the spring in rewriting/revision mode. If all goes well, I hope to get it into editing by summer of 2019.
This final book will answer everyone’s questions about the ultimate weapon, the final solution, and how the journey will end for our heroes. You’ll also find out why Magnus is so driven and brutal. Arklight’s historical accuracy is right on in this final installment, and I promise you that it will absolutely floor you. You’ll either be terrified or grateful, depending on where you sit. I’m very excited to end this series with the biggest bang you could ever imagine.
Oh, what’s with the Ghent Altarpiece being displayed again? To take it forward, I gotta take you back in time. In Task Force Crusader, not only once, but twice, you will go back in time. In 1934, prior to the events of Operation Nightfall, two panels of the painting were stolen. While one panel was returned, the Just Judges panel was never recovered. If you’ve read Nightfall, you should be familiar with the Adam panel story. Let’s just say, there’s a ton of meat on the bone with the finale of this story and the infamous history of the Ghent Altarpiece.
Finally, after getting this one over the finish line in 2019, I’ll be working on a completely new project. The premise is interesting and I’m already working on certain aspects of the story. Updates will post again soon. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
