I know some don't use Facebook, so this page is meant to keep everyone in the loop regardless if they use Facebook or not. I'm active there and post every couple of days, or try to! You can click on the "Posted On" next to the avatar in any post to go to the link on Facebook.


The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles, has been uploaded to all retailers. Now I wait while the they process everything and get me back live links. That is normally about 2-3 days, although Google and Apple sometimes strive to see who can take the longest to go live. Once everything is live everywhere, I'll send out a newsletter as always, and post here!

ARCs have been sent out, and I also updated my website with its official page and sample:

http://www.adairhart.com/series/TheEvaranChronicles/TheUnification.aspx

The sample has the first chapter, and revisits the killer clowns mentioned in The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles. V also shows off his new projected body mode!

I hope your weekend is going well so far!


I've converted The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles, into eBook format, and I'm currently doing my final readthrough! I caught three things so far, and will do an update once I'm done reading.

I'm on chapter 16/32, so about halfway through. Hopefully I'll be done by tomorrow, then I can begin uploading to the various publishers and sending out my ARCs.

it always amazes me how reading a manuscript in a different format helps illustrate issues. When I move it from Scrivener to Microsoft Word, I usually catch quite a bit. Going from Word to Kindle is much less on the issues, but they stick out better.

Ok, back to my readthrough!


Thursday Update Time!

- I have the proofread manuscript back for The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles! Now it's time for my final revision, then it's conversion/launch time.

- I finished my first Microsoft Word pass for Rogue, book 4 of the Earthborn. That pass dealt with the conversion from Scrivener to Word, and then ensuring that the formatting was good. The second Word pass is the ProWriting Aid one, and that one will take some time.

- I hit 27k on book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles. I'm on the last scene of a three scene chapter from Jake/Jelton's perspective. I really enjoyed writing the time travel out of sync aspect in this chapter.

-As I mentioned in the post from yesterday, the audiobook for the second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles, is live now on all retailers. My website has been updated as well:

http://www.adairhart.com/Audiobook/TheAwakening.aspx

My focus is now 100% on getting The Unification ready for launch. Coffee? Check. Music? Check. It's on!


The audiobook for the second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles, is live on Audible and Amazon! Apple is sure taking its sweet time though. Once Apple is live, I'l update my web site. Per ACX, if you already have the first edition, you just need to redownload it and you will get the second edition.

A quick update!

- I have a hard date of Thursday confirmed for the proofread of The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles, to be finished. I figure I can use Thursday night and Friday if needed to clean up the final revision, then Saturday to get it converted and do a full read through via kindle, then it's launch time hopefully this Sunday!

- Cyberpunk 2077 + Keanu Reeves? Sign me up! I've been following this game for a while, and it looks like it's out April 16, 2020. Having Keanu in it is awesome and a surprise. Check out the E3 trailer, followed by Keanu announcing the release date!

Sunday Update Time!

- I hit 24k on book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles, and also did all the chronology up to that point. This book has a bit more time travel aspects than the others, so I'm making sure everything is solid.

- I finished the second Scrivener pass of Rogue, book 4 of the Earthborn! It now goes to Microsoft Word to begin a new series of passes prior to being passed off to my editor. I'm potentially look at a July edit, then August launch.

- ACX has verified they have the audio files for The Evaran Chronicles Box Set: Books 1-3. By the end of this month, I'm hoping that both updated audiobooks (The Awakening and The Box Set) will be fully live.

- The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronciles, is still at the proofreader, but I expect to get it back in the next day or so. Launch is planned for this week!

- I upgraded from my old 2 TB Hard drive to a 2 TB Solid State drive (SSD). I'm impressed with the performance gain on my PC. I should have done this sooner, but I had books to write :P I've always been a little suspicious of SSD reliability, but with a good imaging plan, I can maintain backups of my PC on a 4 TB HD using Macrium Reflect.

- As it took some time to clone my old drive to a SSD, I caught up on some reading. I'm still reading Dr. Michio Kaku's "Physics of the Impossible", and loved his forcefield chapter. Who doesn't love plasma windows, laser lattice curtains, and carbon nanotubes!

- When writing The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles, I had the below on loop. It fits the setting so well.

I hope you had a great weekend!


A Quick Audiobook Update!

I got all the audio files zipped up and sent to ACX for The Evaran Chronicles Box Set: Books 1-3. It took some effort due to their upload site (Hightail) not liking large files or Chrome. Nonetheless, after two days, ACX has the files

The next step is to await their verification, and then like the updated audiobook for The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles, it should be 10-14 days until it goes live. All this waiting!


Tuesday Update TIme!

- I received confirmation that my proofreader received the manuscript for The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles, and she is working on it. I'm looking forward to getting it back, revising it, then getting it ready for launch!

Once I get it going to the publishers, I'll shoot over the manuscript to Michael for the audiobook. I'm curious how he will voice a sassy Kess whose mannerisms cause V to fling his arm in the air and snap!

- On the second Scrivener pass of Rogue, book 4 of the Earthborn, I've reviewed 17/25 chapters so far. I tightenened up a few things and added some additional detail in others. I know I've mentioned this before,but I usualy get a feel from the flow of a story, and this one is feeling solid so far. I do have some overall notes on some things that will need cleanup, but I'll address those at the end of this pass.

As Evaran is in a minor role in the next book, he is also mentioned by name in this one since Andia and Rakar have scenes and there is some background covered in regard to Rakar's old ranger unit.

- Michael got me the retail sample for the audiobook of the second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles! I formatted the file name and comments, zipped it up along with the other files, and the full audiobook is now in the hands of ACX. They've verified they recieved it, and said it will take 10-14 business days to update on the retail sites, and the cover will take 3-5 business days. Now it's a waiting game.

- I hit 21k on book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles. After finishing up Emily's chapter, I need to do a chronology sweep. It will be for everything up to this point, which is about eight chapters. That will take some time, but as there is a lot of historical time travel involved, I need to ensure my dates are accurate.

- I've slowed down on book 5 of the Earthborn and book 11 of the Evaran Chronicles in terms of outlining. There is a lot going on and those will continue to be fleshed out as it gets closer to writing time for them. I'm also still debating on the next series which begins next year.

I hope your week is going well!


Sunday Update Time!

- I've sent the revised manuscript of The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles, to my proofreader. I finished the second revision earlier this morning, and I believe it is ready. The proofread should be about a week, so I'm hoping to begin preparing for launch in about 8-10 days.

- I got the revised audiobook files for the second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles. I had to add comments to each file and rename it per the ACX upload standards. I'm just waiting for the retail sample now from Michael, then I can zip it and upload it to ACX. I've been in contact with them, and they are ready for it.

- I hit 19k on book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles. In the previous chapter, I enjoyed writing the Jake/Jelton friendship and revisiting Lord Vygon and Lord Noskov. Dr. Snowden is the current chapter focus, and it goes in to depth on the PSD's pattern builder. Imagine a virtual Lego workshop!

- I had put the second Scrivener pass of Rogue, book 4 of the Earthborn, on hold while I got The Unification ready for the proofreader. Now that it's sent, I will start the second Scrivener pass today for Rogue. I'll try to get as far as I can before The Unification's launch, as that will eat up quite a bit of time.

- I ran into some issues with Google Play. Their upload process has some issues that need to be worked out. I didn't realize they were effectively still in beta mode. Nonetheless, I've gone back to Streetlib as my processor, and it required some extra steps. As of now, my books aren't on Google Play, but will be here shortly, hopefully in time for The Unification's launch.

- I watched Captain Marvel on Amazon Prime when it came out a few days ago. I liked it! It was good to see Agent Coulson in it as well. I remembered reading about the Skrulls way back in the day with the X-Men. That's how I discovered one of my favorite Marvel characters: Gladiator. Nonetheless, it was a great watch, and I enjoyed all the space ships!

Lot of irons in the fire, but I'm excited about all of them. I hope your weekend is going well!


An Audiobook Update!

I finished my audiobook review for the second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles. Michael has my notes, and he is working on finalizing everything. Then it's time to try the update process with ACX. I'll get information from them for those who have already purchased it and if they can update.

Michael said he has me in the queue already for The Unification, book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles, so that might be out much sooner than I expected as well. Looking forward to getting that one going!
