You will soon, at last, have some new Oliveri work in your hands.
First up, Evileye Books this weekend released a cover teaser for a new The Pack project, “Bravo Four”:
I don’t have a firm release date as we’re still wrapping up some of the ancillary materials, but the true content of the piece is done and ready to go. Fans of The Pack will dig this one, and it will also be a good introduction to the series for anyone who hasn’t read Winter Kill (or, for that matter, Call of the Wild). As soon as it’s ready to go, believe me, you’ll hear about it.
Also, my editor had this to say:
“That’s great, Mike, but what about Lie with the Dead?”
I’m glad you asked. Lie with the Dead is on track, despite delays. I’m wrapping the current round of revisions as I type this update, and then it will go back to my editor to kick around for the final draft. I apologize for the delay on this, but I still believe in this series and hope to keep it going for a long time.
In comics, I’m told this will be available in August:
When Greg Kishbaugh at Kaleidoscope Entertainment asked me to send in a short comic script, I was happy to oblige. The result is “Pig Money”, an 8-page crime piece which will appear in the debut of the A Dark and Stormy Night quarterly anthology. I’ve worked with Greg a bit through Evileye Books, and his biz partner Rafael Nieves has a long history with comics. Both are sharp guys, and I’m looking forward to seeing what else they’ve got up their sleeves.
I will, of course, supply purchase information when it becomes available.
Finally, I’ve been told The Burning Maiden will drop on Kindle in the middle of this month!
Folks have been waiting for this one a while now. It’s had its challenges on the back end, but I believe you will find it well worth the wait. I’m very excited to be a part of the lineup Evileye has put together for this one.
Unfortunately I have no further updates on some of the other projects I’d expected to appear by now. Publishers have gone incommunicado, things have been canceled, or there have just been general delays while editors and publishers assemble the books. There are at least three more anthologies I was hoping to have in your hands by now.
More news soon.
