How do I follow Forgestriker?

Unparalleled success

A rod for my own back

Forgestriker's success
 The opening books in the series have been an unbelievable success for me, and to a lesser the last four books did their part to- each book in the series has out sold Holding Richmond - my Amazon best seller. 

The aftermath
 I have no intention of attempting to match the success of the  http://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/forgestriker-collection.html#.VYbUO1WUzGc series. The success was as much a shock to me, ans to anyone- although many people believed I could do well. To imagine I could emulate the success of this hit series would be folly; I would like to think the success has garnered some interest in my other stories, and will promote further sales of my work http://www.barnesandnoble.com/c/alan-place . As always the work comes first, sales are an added bonus. I won't deny the sales kept me going when I felt like quitting.

The omnibus edition
 
I have plans for an extended version of the series, including two, or three new stories. The ending will probably be the lead to a new series of sci-fi stories in the new year. I hope to bring this edition out in both paperback, and e-book format.

Mordhiemicus
 I have plans to continue with my fantasy story Mordhiemicus, a chapter sample called To Elfenere is already on sale, and comes highly praised by a lady with a BA in Medieval Studies. One hope for this story is to be published by http://www.tor.com/category/all-fiction/ 

Other projects
Also ongoing is the closure of two previous series which never caught on, despite one being an award winner, and the being highly praised by an ex-policeman. I, of course, mean https://www.draft2digital.com/book/32325  and https://www.draft2digital.com/book/32117 . Yes, sad as it is to part with close friends, the Pat Canella series, and Chronicles of Mark Johnson will be wrapped up.
Not to worry, I have many ideas to write, including a follow up to my popular Steampunk mystery Did we see him? I'm also writing an African horror story called Akuji.
