Affliction Z Book Four Update

Published May 25, 2016 in Updates - 5 Comments

It is hard to believe so much time has passed since Affliction Z: Descended in Blood (book 3) was released. At the time, I thought it would only be a matter of six months until book 4 would be ready.

Then we decided to move. A decision which took away more time away from writing than I care to admit. I’ve been used to having a book ready every couple of months.

Once we bought our house and moved to a new state, I spent a few more months in the fixing things up state. There was always a project. Still is, matter of fact.

When I’d finally reduced the list to only a few items, I returned to work. But, suddenly, I found the task of writing a bit more arduous than it had been before. Not that it’s ever been easy, but usually, once I have an idea in mind, the words just kind of…flow.

That wasn’t happening.

At all.

It took a while to get back to form, and required the help of a few writing friends. But I got it together and am full-bore once again.

I’m two-thirds of the way through the 11th Noble book and the 2nd Tanner book.

For Affliction Z, I have my story lines plotted and part of the story written. Once the Noble and Tanner books are wrapped up (by end of June), I’ll return full-time to book 4. My goal is to have this book out before the end of summer.

Thank you for all the emails and comments. Keep ’em coming!

Today is January 27, 2017, when do you plan to finish the series for Affliction? I have read books 1 – 3.

    Barring any issues in editing, Affliction book 4 is coming out in March. I’m not putting any dates for book 5 until I’m a good way through it. And I’m not sure the series will wrap with that book, either.

So excited it is finally March & I cannot wait for Book 4!!
So happy that you were able to keep going with this series, truly love it. It is one of my favorite series involving the military with apocalyptic story lines.
From a Marine Corps Vet – keep it up, we love it!
