Proceed to the Route

The problem with not listing books for pre-sale is if I don't have an actual official deadline, it's easy to lose a couple of months chasing the delightful fantasy of Being Caught Up.

At this point, I honestly don't even know what Being Caught Up would look like. Presumably I could open a file drawer in my office and find what I'm looking for. Presumably I would have answered all the email sitting in my second inbox (some of it dating back to 10/18). Presumably I would be able to spend most of my days writing.

Who knows?

Anyway, as I always tell everyone else, you can't just hang out on the diving board all day. Eventually, you have to jump.

So bombs away!

(Wait. Hopefully not! :-D)

Anyway, here's what I've settled on for this year's reasonably solid deadlines. I have yet to update my website, so this is pretty much the only place you can find this info for now.

April 29th - Slay Ride

May 1st - My story "Stranger in the House" in the Footsteps in the Dark: An M/M Mystery-Romance Anthology (by the way, Tantor has contracted the audio rights on this one--AND it looks like we're going to put into print after all.)

June 15th - The Monuments Men
(Kale Williams is saving space at the end of the month to work on the audio) :-)

July 26th - Mainly by Moonlight (Bedknobs and Broomsticks 1) 
The project I'm probably most excited about. I plan on their being TWO books in the trilogy out this year--do-able only because I'll be writing them for my Patreon group.

Then we have a little bit of space where I try again to catch up on stuff and see where I'm realistically at with the rest of the year's schedule.

If all goes well we'll then have:

October 15th - I Buried a Witch (Bedknobs and Broomsticks 2)

October 31st - Haunted Heart: Spring

And last but not least, sometime in December...Blind Side .

So that's the line up. It's pretty action-packed, so although it all seems doable at the moment, there's always a possibility that life is going to get in the way. Still I did manage to complete all of last year's (revised) schedule, so it could happen!


  1. Yes!!! Kale Williams for the win!! I like the looks of this schedule. I'm looking forward to all these books!

  2. We'll be thrilled with everything you publish and no judgment if something ends up sliding. 😊 You're very good to your fans and this fan's very grateful.

    1. thank you so much! I do appreciate hearing that.

  3. Who is Tantor? How do we get the audiobook?

    1. I'm pretty sure they distribute to all the usual suspects. :-)

  4. That noise I just made (almost beyond the hearing of mere humans) was a major fangirl *squee.* Very undignified, I know. 😎

  5. I'm pretty darned excited about all of these titles.

  6. Are we ever going to see the sequels to Snowball in Hell and This Rough Magic?

  7. Thank you Josh for all of your wonderful books, past, present and future! Thank you for the Adrien English series which started me on my journey to all of your other books and also to Rufus Wainwright. Adrien was listening to the Rufus album Poses. You are the best.

    1. Well, thank YOU for reading--and taking the time to comment. :-)
