Wendy Markland

Stake

As I’ve stated in past posts on this blog/site, my Wendy Markland novels are, currently, off the market for reasons I don’t want to go into here. If you run across one of them somewhere for sale new, please let me know. They shouldn’t be wherever you found them; someone, somewhere has made a mistake if that happens. Those titles are:

“Predators or Prey?”

“Necromancer”

“Vindicated”

Hopefully those books will be re-edited, and re-released through a different publishing house.

Sadly, it looks as if all of the work that has gone into the comic book spin-off series has come to nothing. The publisher, who was just starting up by launching “Wendy Markland: Chronicles Nocturnum”, seems to not be launching after all. The artist who was doing pencils, inks, and colors for the book also seem to have lost interest in the project. There’s been no word from either front for many months now. Messages from me to them have gone unanswered. So that, as they say, seems to be that for the comic book project. For the moment, anyway. I’ll just keep that in my back pocket. Maybe it can be pulled out, and developed someday in the future.

In the meantime, assuming the pre-existing Wendy Markland books named above are re-edited, and re-released as hoped for, Wendy Markland’s adventures will continue in novels. I have ideas for several more books. In addition, I have ideas for several stories that were going to be written for the comic book series. Since it doesn’t look as if that project will happen anytime soon, if ever, those ideas will probably be added to, and developed as full-length novels for the series. Or worked in with other ideas, adding to what I already had planned for future books in the series. Expect more Wendy Markland novellas and/or short stories, too. Some of those unused comic book story plots would be perfect for shorter fiction formats.
