February 21, 2019:
This month I’m working on a Kickstarter to fund the next Cider Toast, a writer’s conference on Whidbey Island.

NW Dragons ebookDecember 15, 2018:
Here Be Dragons, the third book in the Tales of the New World series, is set up for pre-order on Amazon! If you want to see Simon and Bogg go up against a VERY large enemy, check it out.

November 4, 2018:
My writer’s group, the Legion of Plume, has been chewing on Here Be Dragons. Meanwhile, I’m writing a novel using my evil-twin pen name, and it’s set in SPACE! (I love space.) I promise the internet that Here Be Dragons will be out before the end of the year. The Ninja Girl series, by the way, is now available everywhere.

I’ve been writing faster, and it feels really good.

April 20, 2018:
The draft of Here Be Dragons: Tales of the New World, Book 3 is finished! Stay tuned for more of Bogg, Simon and Lisandra (and Ormir) later in 2018.

November 20, 2017:
The second book of the Ninja Girl series is available for pre-order on Amazon! It’s called Ninja Girl 2: Women in Black.

Halloween, 2017:
I sold a short story under a pen name to Compelling Science Fiction! If you want to see some hard SF about a down-and-out asteroid miner who finds something surprising, take a look.

May 21, 2017:Ninja Girl: The 9 Wiles
A little working here, a little writing there, and it’s almost summer! I’ve got the land of Mira and quite a few ninjas dueling in my subconscious while I write some controversial short stories under a pen name. More on these later, I hope. Meanwhile, The 9 Wiles has a new cover!

February 22, 2017:
(Steve is writing in his cave. Shh! Don’t disturb him.)

November 30, 2016:
The manuscript of Ninja Girl 2: Women in Black is finished and I must admit, it reads pretty well! I took Nanowrimo off and enjoyed some casual editing and serious naps. Now, I’ll need to find a cover artist who likes drawing ninjas.  While you wait, you can take a look at book one on Amazon, Apple, and B&N (it’s free).

August 16, 2016:
Both New World and Hair of the Bear will be included in a StoryBundle available now until September 8. If you like the Tales of the New World, I bet you will like these other “weird western” authors: James Derry, Joe Bailey, Gemma Files, Lindsay Buroker, J. Patrick Allen, Kyra Halland, Kenneth Mark Hoover, and Judith Tarr.

February 7, 2016:
The anthology is out! It’s called Swords for Hire: A Frontier Fantasy and Medieval Western Story Anthology, and it’s available on Amazon. Other markets to follow. Congratulations to the other authors: Derek Alan Siddoway, James Downe, and Chris Adams!

October 27, 2015:
I just finished a short story set ten years before New World, to be published in an anthology of frontier and western fantasy early next year. In it, we catch a glimpse of a younger Bogg. A pair of Algolan adventurers seek the source of the vivets’ gold, and Bogg is… less than helpful.

April 17, 2015:
Sequels, sequels. I’m working on Ninja Girl 2, with a working title of Women in Black. Book Three in the New World Tales (the adventures of Simon and Bogg) will be called Here Be Dragons. Watch out for Ormir’s return in that one. Meanwhile, Ninja Girl is free on Smashwords and Barnes & Noble.

December 15, 2014:
Ninja Girl is out! Published under the leaner pen name of S. W. White, it’s a young-adult urban fantasy with magical powers, secret societies, and one tough heroine. A print edition and broader ebook distribution are coming soon; for now, you can find it on Amazon.

October 5, 2014:
I started Ninja Girl in 2012, set it aside to finish Read No Evil, then set it aside to write Hair of the Bear. It’s been baking for almost three years… and will finally be out this winter.

July 1, 2014:
Hair of the Bear is out! Here it is at Amazon and Smashwords. It’s the sequel to New World, so if you haven’t seen that, grab it for free (Amazon | Smashwords).

January 12, 2014:
I completed the draft of Hair of the Bear: New World Book II a couple of weeks ago. Now I’m editing like mad, hoping it can go live in a few weeks. Almost… there…

September 22, 2013:
I graduated with my MFA last month, and nowadays my life is about wordcount. Good times for a writer. I’m closing on Act III in the New World sequel (which has a working title of Hair of the Bear), and I’ve posted some of that young-adult fantasy, Ninja Girl, at Wattpad.

April 2, 2013:
A story related to Read No Evil is well underway, and in an unusual format: the main character is sharing her experiences in real time on Twitter. There’s already a link in the novel to that Twitter account, and when the story is finished, it will exist as a strange sort of companion tale.

Yesterday I started drafting the sequel to New World.

February 16, 2013:
The young-adult fantasy, book one of a trilogy, is off to some new beta readers who are fiction MFA candidates and very smart cookies. Up next: I’m starting work on the sequel to New World. Returning to Mira is going to be fun!

January 10, 2013:
I’m a day or two from finishing the first draft of a new young-adult fantasy novel. That’s an exciting time for a writer! I don’t want to let slip the title yet, but here’s a tagline: “She’s hip. She’s smart. She’s faster than a speeding bullet.”

    I just finished reading New World and am delighted to hear you are writing a sequel. Those characters and their world are just too wonderful to abandon. I’m also happy to have another author to recommend to my students. Thank you for a terrific story.

    • Steve White says:

      Denise, you rock.
      Thank you for your kind words. In the long, long wordcount haul, they mean more than you know.

      And the sequel’s draft is almost finished!

  2. I already left my positive review on your FB. And will follow up with same on BN.com. But if I ever wanted to lead another into the world of reading this genre, I could not go wrong offering New World! Kudos!

  3. Niccole says:

    Really enjoyed your novels. New World and Hair of the Bear were fantastic. Louis Lamour meets Pirates of the Carribean with a touch of King Arthur 🙂 Will be recommending to all my friends and just one question…when will the third in the series be out?

    • Steve White says:

      Thanks, Niccole – I love that!
      I can’t say when Book 3 will be out, but its working title is “Here Be Dragons.”

  4. Dean Panasci says:

    I so loved those 2 Bogg Books. My joy could ONLY be heightened by slowly savoring yet a third masterpiece in that all-too-short series. Thanks for sharing your brilliance with us, Dean.

  5. Laura says:

    Just finished New World. Great fun. Looking forward to reading more adventures of Simon and Bogg

  6. Caiti says:

    I finished both of the ninja girl books last weekend and it’s safe to say I’m hooked. Then again it wasn’t hard since I’m a little obsessed with both ballet and ninjas. Love the books! Love the blog! Very fascinating! Keep it up!
