Nothing too earth shattering. I'm in contact with multiple publishers and have hopes of finding a home for this strong series.
For those who follow me and aren't on my friends list, the publisher I had lined up for The Rixey Files series went under. I'm back to shopping around for a new publisher. I have some friends with contacts in the industry who are checking around. I hope to have an answer in the next few weeks. This may work out as my first book in the series had a June 1, 2018 release date.
Made a few changes to The Trek to Elysium Chronicles: Volume 1: A Zombie Apocalyptic Tale, 2nd Edition. I changed the place Chapters begin, using page breaks. I reduced the spacing somewhat. I did keep the Courier New 12 as that was how the original was printed. I ended up dropping 12 pages and now the paperback version sells for only $7.95. It should be ready to go in a few days. Here is the shocking new cover. I think it will attract some attention!
I'm very excited to be working with my publisher, THEAQLLLC , on the The Rixey Files series. I've already written two novels in the series and am working on a 3rd. Stay tuned for more information!
I have some signings lined up for Carbondale and Cape Girardeau at the Barnes& Noble Stores. Looks like they will be at Halloween time. A good time for a horror panel, don'y you agree. BWAAAHHH. Featured Books will be The Incident and The Trek to Elysium Chronicles: Volume 2: Survival Guide. These books are fiction for now, but I've been hearing rumors they will soon be moved to non-fiction. How could that be? I'll never tell....
For those who missed my live announcement, I signed my contract with THE AQLLC Publishing. The contract is for book number one in The Rixey Files series, The Quest for Caesar's Medallion. Release date is set for June 1.
I will be making a big announcement concerning The Rixey Files early next week. It's very good news is all I can say. More details later. To keep up with my latest work, like my author page! It's gotten 490 likes. https://www.facebook.com/hughauthor/

I am still awaiting word from a potential publisher about The Rixey Files: The Quest for Caesar's Medallion. I hope to have something to report in a few weeks.
Book 2 of the series The Rixey Files: The Quest for The Chalice of Power is chugging right along. It's between 10-16 pages from being completed.
The working title for Book 3 of the series is The Rixey Files: The Quest for The Cross of Life. I just sent out a test first chapter to my beta readers. If you would like a copy, IM me on Facebook.
