The brainstorming and writing has been incessant as of late. Wrapping up this novel has proven to be a challenge for me because it will be the final entry in this 12 book saga. Making it stand alone and also tie up all the unanswered questions from the previous novels is probably one of the most difficult things I’ve done, but it will be well worth the wait. The historical and mythological tie ins for this book exceeds everything I’ve done so far and in a way that will have the reader on the edge of their seat.
That being said, here’s the cover reveal for CONSUMED BY WAR. My brother, Dan Pipito, did the art and came up with the concept for this. Be sure to follow him @dpipito or check out his children’s art @pintsizedpages.
Let me know what you think.
If you follow me on social media, then you’ve probably seen some recent book announcements I’ve made with new releases and my next upcoming project. I figured it was time to layout the plan for the next year and keep you all in the loop about my upcoming release slate.
CONSUMED BY WAR – a novel that will close out the Eternal Hunger Saga. In this stand alone adventure, darkness rises at the dawn of man, which sets history in motion. War has plagued mankind with one force pulling the strings. It will visit various periods in history and show why these wars have happened, and what the ultimate goal has been. The final battle is approaching, but at what cost and who will be the victor? Release date is scheduled for April 2019
THE LOST YEAR – a short story scheduled to release in June 2019. Details will be shared soon.
BEYOND TIME TRILOGY – a compilation release including 3 novels and 3 short stories plus bonus material. Release in Fall 2019.
DIGESTED CONCEPTS – a non-fiction book that goes behind the scenes with the facts and history that I used to base my Eternal Hunger Saga upon. release TBA
Lots of other things in the works, but these are the immediate projects along with everything else. Look for new episodes of #thinksipwrite, my web series on youtube. I’ll also keep posting songs I feel like playing on that channel, and am open to requests. It’ll be a mix of covers and originals.
What are your works in progress? Feel free to share links to what you are doing in the comments.
It’s been a crazy few months here, so I’ve slacked on posting updates. I apologize for that. Here’s an update of my current projects and what is coming in 2016 and beyond.
PLANET ATE – The 8th standalone novel in my ongoing series starts off with a bang and will raise many questions as to our human history. It will look at various alien encounters and UFO incidents, plus inspiration from real life events, the Bible, and more. This is perhaps my favorite installation yet and was so much fun to write. Its in final stages now and will be available in January 2016.
A LITTLE BOY IN THE LAND OF SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS – My next children’s book will bring Dan Pipito back for his watercolor expertise. This time it will be geared towards boys and has been written for my son. Look for it in the Spring of 2016.
(WORKING ON TITLE) – This will be the final book in my Beyond Human trilogy and conclude the main series taking Gordon Lightcap on one final adventure. While it closes the doors of the past, the future will be opened to do much more, so look for a new chapter to open. This will be released in Fall of 2016
As always, thank you for your support. I will continue to be active on social media and update here as often as I can. There are a few other projects in the works, but we are keeping them tight lipped for now. Have a happy new year! – Rick Pipito
