Given the time I spent last week establishing the distribution for Through Darkness and Stars and the (I've still got to link to it maybe today) Facebook Page for The Omniverse I didn't get a chance to do much else, creatively speaking. I answered a couple of emails from readers who liked the new eBook - extremely validating, that - and I've come up with a quick FAQ for you, based on the one question I was asked most often:
WILL THERE BE ANOTHER BOOK IN THE STORY?
That's the good news and that's also the bad news.
The Omniverse has already been outlined in detail, from start to finish. There are five books to the story in total, however, only two of them are complete at this time. The third book, working title The Aeons War, is being written. I've been working on it since November 2008.
I already have friends reading and providing feedback.
The bad news is that it's been the victim of many false starts and restarts. I don't anticipate finishing the first full draft before the end of this year. So yes, there will be another book in the series (And the way I left things off I'd be a real prick if there wasn't) but it's going to be a while longer.

The follow-up to The Unearthing
An ancient Ship completing a millions-year old mission has taken Human passengers and crew on an historic voyage to the heart of an ancient cosmic dynasty.
But despite their extensive training, no one aboard the Shipflight is prepared for what they find as they search for the Great Races of the lost League of Worlds.
When catastrophe forces Shipflight onward unable to return to Earth, they set out to discover what happened to those who passed through the cosmos before them.
What awaits them beyond the world that Mankind has always called home is a growing madness aboard the Ship and a lost enemy stalking them as they travel through darkness and stars...
