Lots going on!
First things first: SACRIFICES, the third book in the Arcane Underworld series, will be out in the world on July 19. Woohoo! That’s the good news. The somewhat less good news is that there were not enough orders from bookstores for the publisher to justify printing physical copies of the book, which, I gotta admit, bummeth me out most grievously. But the book will be released in ebook on all the standard platforms, and I’m super happy it’s making its way out into the world. I probably flatter myself to say so, but I think it’s the best of the three books in the series by far. Which is good, because, barring a miracle, it’s also the last.
Second, my songwriting partner and I, under the name H&S Salvage, have put the finishing touches on our album, titled “Outrun the Reptile.” Behold the awesome cover art:
That makes me laugh like hell every time I look at it. Planning on the album release, at least in limited fashion, on July 5th.
Last but not least, I’ve played a few shows with the extremely talented Raquel Lindemann recently, and those have gone well enough she’s gonna put up with me for more in the future. Our next appearance will be at Checkered Past Winery this Friday, July 1, from 8:30 to 10:30. We’ll be playing some of Raquel’s original music as well as a mind-bogglingly diverse set of tunes ranging from Janis Joplin to Sia, some of which should never be attempted on acoustic guitar… but we’re gonna go ahead and attempt them anyway. Hope to see you there!
