The appointed day has arrived!
The Volunteer is reporting for duty.

Just a reminder, today is the last day to get Beaten for just $0.99! The price reverts to normal 6/1.
I’m keeping things a bit on the brief side today because there’s a giant hailstorm going on and my power keeps going out.
Less than a week left.
Thank you all for your support, and for your eyeballs!
Who’s ready to retreat into the dark realm of crushing anxiety, never to return?
Hopefully that doesn’t actually happen.
In the mean time, let’s look to the future a bit.
I’ve got an outline for book 5 (mostly) finalized.
I’ve got about 20% of the book written. There’s a super-early preview of it in the back of The Volunteer. Hint, hint.
It’s going to be bigger than any of the previous four. It’s also, stylistically, more ambitious than any of the books that come before it. We’re building to a book 6 crescendo and I don’t want to waste the momentum I have now.
I plan to have the first draft done by the end of July.
Editing will probably then consume 6-10 years of my life.
If we’re being more ambitious, let’s say the book will be done in February.
That’s faster than I’ve turned any of the others around. For optimism purposes I’m going to pretend I’m getting better at hitting dates. We’ll see the actual results. I’m pretty excited about the direction the story is going–all of the different parts are starting to coalesce and build towards the aforementioned crescendo.
So the plan as it stands now is to launch the last two books in The Primer in 2018. One at the beginning and one at the end. I think I can do it. Just have to write them first.
In the mean time, some of ya’ll have some catching up to do.
Book 1: Break is available for free with a sign up for my Newsletter
Book 2: Beaten is $0.99 for just a few more days. It’s free with Kindle Unlimited all the time. The paperback includes a bonus–Break is hidden in the back.
Book 3: The New Program is free. Always.
Book 4: The Volunteer launches 5/31. In eBook and paperback. The paperback includes The New Program in the back.
Book 5: The Unnamed Project is under construction. Watch this space.
See ya’ll next week.
