    Completely, unashamedly copying
    @TravisBach with this format.


    The state of the series today,
    1. Book 1 out in eBook, Print.
    2. Book 1 audible is currently in production and will likely be released around the beginning for April.
    3. Book 2 1st draft is 95% complete.
    4. Book 2's blurb is in the early stages and will hopeful be ripped apart and made better by better blurbists (coining that) on here.
    5. Book 2's cover needs to be ordered but will be soon.
    I'm tentatively hoping for a late April/early may release of DS2, a late July/early August release of DS3, and either late October/early November or Feb 2020 release of DS4. That date depends on if I decide to work on DS4 after I finish DS3 or start on a new YA series thats been bouncing around my head for awhile now.

    Book 2 is off to the editor and the cover has been ordered. Estimated Release Date: April 24, 2019

    Book 3 has been started and I'm pretty excited about it already. It's a pirate adventure and I think it's going to be a lot of fun to write.

    For those curious Book 2 was an investigation about disappearing people in a small town.

    Here's Book 2's Blurb to get you all worked up and excited:


    The Phoenix of Altria: Digital Sorcery Book Two

    Witness the rise of a phoenix or at least the world’s worst gamer learning to make use of his stat page.

    Caught illegally crossing the border into Altria, our heroes are politely asked to investigate why the population of Roselake is disappearing. No one has heard from the disappeared, they can’t even send messages, and now two guards have vanished as well.

    Sure the governess might be sending them there thinking they will be sacrifices but that won't stop the crack team of Ryland and co. from trying to get to the bottom of this critical investigation.

    As they investigate, Eldertits threatens to blow their cover, and half the town along with it; Rondo is desperate to foster a relationship with the clergy, despite being past puberty; Elaria must resist shoving something hard and pointy into everyone's favorite elf, and Ryland faces his greatest challenge yet. Achieving a basic level of competence.

    Will they succeed?

    Probably not.

    Update:
    1. Book 3, Red Snatch has been sent off to the editor (Ryland and Co. + Ridiculous Pirate adventures) - Should be an early August Release if all goes to plan
    2. Book 2 Audible is 1/2 complete. I'm going to guess a late June release because of Amazons lengthy review process.
    3. The series is officially in the black (profitable) after the 2nd royalty check was sent out. Hooray!
    4. Book 4 has rough outline and is tentatively titled: The Companionship of the Bling (So make of that what you will, haha!)
    5. I'm planning on the series being 7 books but could be shorter or longer. Still I have ideas of what I'd like to do with books 4-7
    6. In between writing sessions for Digital Sorcery I've been planning an epic fantasy series I'm calling The Successors. Only putting this here because it will probably eventually impact how often DS releases. Once I've got this series fully planned (and I'm a pantser so planning is not my forte) I'd like to start alternating writing between the two series. I'm committing myself to planning this one because of the scope and the number of characters involved. Still I'm very excited about this project. (It's not a comedy like DS so DS will still be getting all of my comedic love!)

    Midway through Book 2 right now and definitely enjoying this -- despite wanting to smack Eldertits almost as often as I laugh at/with her. She's a tough character to pull off, and it's great to see you taking chances with her and not playing it safe. Looking forward to Books 3 to 7.
