Astrid Maxxim and her Hypersonic Space Plane – Coming Soon.

Astrid Maxxim and her Hypersonic Space PlaneI swear I didn’t mean to do it.  After spending the last part of my summer vacation finishing Astrid Maxxim and the Antarctic Expedition, I had no intention of jumping into another.  I had planned to get right back to 82 Eridani: Journey, which is sitting right here half done.  In fact, I had thought that I wouldn’t do another Astrid Maxxim book for a year or two.  I just couldn’t stop writing about Astrid.  I just continued on into a new book, and now I’m done.

I’ve actually done more writing since school started than I did during the summer.  This isn’t because I don’t have plenty to do.  It’s because my wife started back to work too, and I have a lot of time alone at home.  I think this may be the quickest first draft I’ve ever written– 20 days.

When I hit the halfway point in the new book, I contacted Matthew Riggenbach at Shaed Studios, who has done all the Astrid Maxxim covers, and had him get started.  He does fantastic work as you can see and is a joy to work with.  I have no idea if I’m easier or harder to work with than his other clients, but I gave him some pretty specific requirements on what I wanted and he really pulled it off.

Anyway, it’s done.  And now it has an official release date: 10-24-14!

And if you know any 8-14 year-olds who read ebooks, please buy them a copy of Astrid Maxxim and her Amazing Hoverbike.  It’s just 99 cents, and they’ll like it.

P.S. I had Matthew go ahead and create the next Astrid Maxxim Cover, even though I haven’t actually outlined my idea for the book.  So I don’t know when I’ll write book 5, but I will.
