Long Range Forecast

It's been quiet around here lately, but there has been a good reason. I've started on the rough draft of the first book of a new trilogy. I've also assembled a basic outline for the other two novels. It will be a unique series that revolves around the weather and two characters who meet in the first book, Race the Sky. The other two books, The Hammer of Amalynth and The Forge of Midnight (this title might change), will follow their ongoing adventures across the Great Plains and the Midwest during several summer storm seasons.

I have no idea how long this first book will take, but this is a novel that I first started back in 1999. It has gone through a couple of iterations, but I think this version will be the best.

I'll have more details on the first book soon, but for now the best way to describe it is that it is a like a supernatural version of Twister.
