I just now (literally, a few moments ago), submitted my third novel to Haven Publishing to begin the editing process. Said novel, tentatively called RocKaiju (though very likely to change titles), will most likely see publication this winter, maybe in time for Christmas.
“But wait a minute, Robert” I hear you saying because I have really good hearing “what happened to Rhest for the Wicked?”
The answer, unfortunately, is complex, frustrating, and involves ogres. Yes, the kind that live under bridges and eat billy goats. Yes, I know the story says its a troll. It wasn’t. It was an ogre. It was made into a troll thanks to Gnome racism. But that’s neither here nor there.
Rhest for the Wicked is still coming. It’s still on its way. Haven is a new publishing house and I am (until Rhest), a mostly underground author. Combine these two factors together and large companies are hesitant to dive right in. The delays have been mostly at the corporate level, with company A double-checking everything company B did, prompting company B to return the favor. Lots of little delays that have added up quickly.
But they’re finally smoothing themselves out. Rhest for the Wicked will be on store shelves soon, potentially as early as this week. Once I have links, I will go link-o-riffic, don’t worry.
So stay tuned. 🙂
