Rumors of my abduction have been moderately exaggerated. I'm still here despite evidence to the contrary. 

For those of you wondering when my next book is coming out...I have no idea. 

Bad answer, I know. 

I have several works in progress--including the third Hunter Chronicles book--but health issues have derailed my writing efforts over the last year or so. And no, I'm not that old. 

Fortunately, I think doctors are finally honing in on the problem. Looks like it's either a parathyroid or kidney issue--not sure yet. Either way, I'm hoping to be back to full steam by the end of summer. I'll keep you posted.

Good to hear from you and glad to hear you're back to writing. I've had some sidetracks myself this last year. New day job is a step in the right direction. All the best - Joe

Ugh. Sorry to hear about the thyroid cancer Little Buddy. I'm reading The Fault in Our Stars right now. The main character has thyroid cancer and lung cancer. The author (John Green) has me crying on every page. I wish you the best.

I came here because my son and I both started your hunter series, have quite enjoyed it thus far, and were curious about the next book. I am sorry to hear about your health problems, not for the sake of your books, but because that sounds pretty miserable. I hope you recover soon.

I was just wondering if there is any news on the next book.

Please blog more often. It would be great to know the progress and when the third book of the Hunter Chronicles is being released. My friends and I have been excited for a while now and are starting to grow a little anxious and impatient in need of the perfection of the Hunter Chronicles. So much so that I check every couple of days to see if it has come out,only to be disappointed :(
