Extinction Sequel Update!

Send to Kindle

I feel bad that I haven’t updated my blog in a while, but I’ve had good reason (other than being lazy). I have been working diligently on the sequel to Extinction and I finally finished! The first draft is done and on the editor’s desk. She’s pretty busy and I missed my deadline with her by sixteen days (ooops), so I’m not at the head of the line right now. But as soon as she gets it back to me I’ll start going through her edits and polishing up my finished manuscript.

I still have to name the darn thing! I’ve got a few ideas I’m mulling over but I’m not sold on any of them yet. I do know that the working title “Extinction – Rise of the Cherta” is just not going to work for me. That was my starting title when I had a different arc in mind but things changed, imagine that, and now I don’t like it for the final work.

I also need to get a cover going. I’m going to try a different route for my cover this time, using a crowdsourced-kind of concept. There’s a site where you post what kind of artwork (book cover) you’re looking for and different artists compete for the job by uploading their ideas. It’s more expensive than the routes I went for my last two books but I’m excited to see what might come out of it.

So there you go, that’s my update for all of my two fans. The next and final installment of this story arc should be on Amazon by the end of May, hopefully sooner if I can pull it off. Thank you for the support you’ve given me in the form of emails, blog posts and reviews. I really appreciate that my work has been enjoyed by more people than I ever expected it to be. Take care everyone!

  1. That’s GREAT news Jay!
    Sorry, my drawing talents are limited to stick men, and coloring with my grandkids. So, it would be better to leave suggesting cover art to someone that can actually draw! As for suggesting a possible title for your much anticipated sequel to Extinction?

    “Extinction II” (Threat of the Cherda)
