Current things are in limbo right now, so let's talk a bit about next year. Hurry up, 2021, we've had more than enough of this year.
First up will be Geoffrey the Very Strange, part of the Magic Emporium series with a whole bunch of cool authors like Meghan Maslow and Kim Fielding. The first story, by Jackie James, is set to release 1/14/21.
Geoffrey is scheduled for 3/18/21 and I do have a short synopsis for youthat may or may not be the actual blurb:
Aspic encounters Geoffrey while working alone in an herbalist's shop and, initially, isn't certain he's human. Geoffrey is a theoretical necromancer experimenting with replacements for blood magic for summoning and raising the dead. His current line of inquiry involves seashells and do they have any in stock?
When Geoffrey finally has some sort of success, Aspic is with him in his lab, but the results aren't at all what Geoffrey was aiming for. Instead of raising the dead rabbit on his table, the spell animates the seashells and rocks, which flee the lab. They soon discover that the spell-animated shells etc. are "zombies" in that they can "infect" other inanimate objects.
Geoffrey and Aspic need to find a spell to de-animate them before the world is overrun by seashells and stones gone mad.
The next item on my 2021 list is a big one - a return to the Variant Configurations series. This would involve a couple of things...
The plan, long ago, was for a three book series. Only one was ever published. Yes, yes, we won't go into all that. The first book, Rarely Pure and Never Simple has been out of print and off the e-shelves for some time, and Mischief Corner Books is happy to do a re-issue.
The deal is that I have to at least have the second book written before the first gets reissued. That's the second thing for 2021, then - to finish book 2, From the Noblest Motives. If I have time and a good idea, the third book would follow.
That's all the definite plans for 2021 so far with a probable lesbian holiday story at the end of the year again. Anything beyond this will be extra icing.
