I've retrieved my rights for, and am revising, the five most significant stories in the Jackson Spey/Adin Swift relationship arc. I plan on issuing them as a series titled PILGRIM SOULS. All volumes will have new, visually compatible covers and, I hope, much-improved content. They'll also be priced low.
As some of you know, the books have been scattered among four different publishers. If you count the novellas in which Jackson and/or Adin make cameo appearances, the number of publishers goes up to five -- a confusing situation for readers. Moreover, their covers aren't reflective of the stories or, usually, the main characters. (The only somewhat-accurate representation is the image of Jackson on the InDescent and TBWYA covers.) In addition, the texts of all five need work, from fairly minor tweaking to more extensive editing.
So . . . here's an update on each title. * Hoochie Coochie Man(Jackson's first appearance ever): This novel has been out of print for years, and I have no immediate plans to reissue it. Although it does fill in some blanks from Jackson's past (e.g., how he acquired and built his ceremonial magic room, the origin and nature of his "feud" with Ivan Kurtz and Bothu, more details about his friend Angelina), the novel would require an extensive rewrite. I doubt there's enough reader interest to make such an effort worthwhile. * Cemetery Dancer. No longer available. Because the book is primarily m/f erotica, it isn't a meaningful addition to the Jackson-and-Adin saga. I may release it somewhere down the pike as a stand-alone. * Plagued. Not currently available, but it will be Book 1 in the Pilgrim Souls series. * Obsessed. Not currently available. As Book 2 in the Pilgrim Souls series, it will be coupled with Plagued under the same cover. * InDescent. Not currently available. This will be Book 3 in the Pilgrim Souls series. * To Be Where You Are. Not currently available. This will be Book 4 in the Pilgrim Souls series. I might couple it with InDescent under the same cover (depends on combined final length of both works). * Fugly and Abercrombie Zombie (the "cameo appearance" novellas). These will NOT be part of the Pilgrim Souls series. Both remain available through their original publishers and most ebook retailers. * Carny's Magic. Not currently available.RetitledYoung Magic,this novel will be Book 5 in the Pilgrim Souls series.
