The Future of Adventures of Adam

Some may be wondering what I plan to do about my self-published fantasy series, Adventures of Adam, now that I have joined The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) publishing.

Everything is still the same.  I may release sequels a little slower than I expected because I will have more on my plate.

The great thing about TEGG is that it isn't a traditional publisher.  It is something new that hasn't been seen before.  It goes beyond media or multimedia.  It is a transmedia company.  I am still considered an Indie author because the group is an Indie Publisher.

There are two big differences from being all by myself as a self-publisher and how I will work with my relationship with TEGG.  First, I will have the opportunity to publish short original works in TEGG's upcoming monthly publication, Platter of Surprises.  Secondly, anything that I intend to release by myself, I must run it by the TEGG group.  The second may sound bad, but it actually isn't.  What TEGG wants to do is see if there is a way for them to incorporate any new non-TEGG material I release into publicity the group can use to promote me!  It's a win-win situation!

So my plan for now is to simply work on the second novel, "The Cult of Draenar" to be released in 2016.  I need to follow up with my editor and see what her schedule looks like for the beginning of the year before I announce a date.  My ambition for a Fall 2015 release was simply not reasonable for the amount of work that I have put into the story.  Many, many errors need to be corrected before I even pass it off to my editor.

And I will be releasing some original short story works and some stories for upcoming projects related to the TEGG publications.  All in all, this arrangement means everyone will have to opportunity to see more new works coming from me!

Because of all the reasons in this very long explaination, I've decided that almost all the work I do will in some way touch TEGG.  I don't think Adventures of Adam would fit into the TEGG's productions plans, but I would honestly consider an invitation by TEGG to incorporate it into their works.  That's how much I trust Mr. Greenwood, even with my baby...
