Work continues on the third Parallel Nazi novel. I am about 70,000 words into the book at this point. I am still projecting a publication date in December 2018, although I have had readers demanding it sooner. I have no complaints about the reader feedback. The Parallel Nazi series is selling very well.
The Carrington Event novel is on the shelf for the moment. It will require major surgery on the second draft, so it will likely not appear until sometime in 2019.
And the big question: How many Parallel Nazi novels do I plan to write? That is a good question. I am working on the outlines for two subsidiary titles, The Munich Faction and The Flight of the Swallow which takes place in the same time frame, but with different characters. I am actually developing ideas for a fourth Parallel Nazi novel, and I have some thoughts for a fifth book in the series. Beyond that, I cannot say at this time.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Improbable Nazi is available for pre-order, and will be generally available on December 15. This is the second book of a series I have named "The Parallel Nazi." This book continues the story of Heinrich Schloss, a German history professor who is transported from 1982 Berlin to a very different 1941 Germany.
The "Carrington Event" dystopian novel first draft is nearing completion. I tentatively plan to publish it sometime during the first half of 2018. I am anxious to complete this draft, so I can begin work on the third Parallel Nazi novel.
I have completed the companion work to Accidental Nazi. It is entitled ruBracks, Nazis, the Death of the Universe and Everything. At this time we do not have a projected publish date, but it will probably be sometime during 2018.
July 2017 -- Various & Sundry
Here we are in the depths of the summer, suffering the heat wave, but enjoying the sunshine. The Snows of Montora is now available in a print edition. We took the opportunity to update the text and stamp out some more typos. So, we're calling it a Second Edition. It is also available in the Kindle ebook format.
The sequel to Accidental Nazi will be out in December, so put it on your Christmas lists. This book continues the story of Heinrich Schloss and his life in a parallel universe in Nazi Germany. I have completed the second draft, so the book is substantially in its final form.
I am working on a dystopian story about Earth circa 2240 to 2250 A.D. Civilization has crumbled under the combined onslaught of a "Carrington Event" in 2035, and successive pandemics. A Carrington Event is a solar flare strong enough to disrupt electrical systems on the planet. Mankind struggles with a climate which has fallen into a glacial epoch. Lawrence Berthold struggles to complete his education under the guidance of academics who are shortsighted and penurious.
My wife and I recently completed a three week vacation that covered Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Western Illinois. After getting the bugs and road tar off the car, I am back in the saddle and working on my various writing projects. It's too hot to be outside right now, anyway.
Dynastic Ambition -- April 2017
Frank Nyman is back in the first of a new series of stories. His old nemesis Admiral Krause calls him in to investigate and quell unrest on the planet Clay in the Cardiff system. Along the way he is drafted to facilitate the unification of the nation-states on Caledon. He is challenged by a resource-strapped navy and a young, homicidal religionist, who is bent on killing him. He is joined, once again, by Smith & Jones along with Stephanie Howard and Hai Ciera for new adventures. Frank’s life is changed dramatically with new events and characters entering his life.
Accidental Nazi -- March 2017
Since the release of Accidental Nazi in December, the book has become the best selling of the Wagher novels. The print edition is also selling well. Ward is hard at work on the sequel and expects to release it in December of 2017. Many readers have asked questions about particular characters and events. All we can say it, wait for the next book in the series.
