I hope you all are doing well – and looking forward to some time off for the holidays! I just wanted to provide an update since it has been a little while.

I’m over halfway through the first draft of AO3 (~90K words) and I’m still making progress – albeit slower than I would like. Between the recent U.S. tax reform (which has clients beating down my door) and some personal health troubles, I haven’t been able to find as much time to write lately as I would like.

Hopefully, things will clear up a bit over the Christmas holiday and I’ll find some time to get some serious writing done. When I actually have time to focus, it usually moves pretty quickly (5K+ per day). I also have all of AO3 outlined already, it’s just a matter of sitting down and hammering out the words.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!

    Dear Travis. Me and probably thousands more will be waiting for it. Thanks for these great books (audiobooks for me). I use them to (very effectively) distract me from the real world once in a while. Its therapeutic.

    I’m eagerly awaiting the third book in your series, I came across your work while looking for something different to my usual genres (I tend to mostly read fantasy and a little bit of space opera style sci-fi) and was not disappointed. I literally couldn’t put the first two books down, as a result I’ve made a point of recommending you pretty much all of my friends who read.

    Keep up the good work!

    Woohoo! This is exactly what I came here looking for so thanks for the update. I’m in the middle of book 2 right now and already excited for book 3! I’ve got my Audible credit reserved and waiting for this one! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

    Love the books, going through the Audible ones now. Just started work at Audible and your book was on the “What are you reading now?” dry erase wall. It’s been fun, looking forward to the next one in the series.

    Take your time writing. Get better first and sharpen your stories to perfection. They are amazing! I am loving the characters and the setting. Log horizon is one of my favorite animes as well. I can definitely see its influence in your story but you are rocking you original take as well.

    Well if i knew that people keeping more of their money would lead to me missing out on my AO fix i would have supported Hillary instead. JK, Hillary for prison 2018.
    All jokes aside, your books are amazing and I cant wait for more!

    Hey Travis,

    Focus on your health and taking care of yourself first! You’re a great writer and I’ve really enjoyed all three of your books thus far! Get well and I’m eager to read AO3!

    Keep up with your passion, I’m patiently waiting for AO3. I currently have 433 Audio Books, I’ve listened to about 80% of them. I only have 4 hours and 12 minutes left with Riley in Retribution. Then I’ll be dry with AO. I still have a few listens to placate myself, but I’m really focusing on getting my ‘ears’ into AO3 as I drive to work. Stay healthy, take this flu thing seriously, I know what I’m talking about, from personal experience with them. My audio book buddy is starting your AO series this week, as soon as he finishes his current book. Thank You.

    I hope you are doing well! I know it’s tax season too. I’m really looking forward to AO3. I’m re-audibleing them now. This is some good stuff.

    Looking forward to it, I’ve enjoyed the other books a lot. It sucks being caught up on a series and having to wait lol. I discovered the first book right as the second was being released so there was no delay for me, now it feels like forever. 🙂 No worries though, these things take time.

    I love AO. I really want to find out what happens to Jason, Frank and Riley. I hope you stay healthy and strong to continue your passion. You have been such a inspire and I love your characters. I was also wondering if you could Ship Rason. Just saying 😗

    Riley: I always thought Jason was cute in a nerdy type of way.
    Me: YESSSS she is falling for him.

      Ha. Speaking of which, I’m writing the final scenes for AO3 and I’m starting to think I might be a human troll…

    Hi Travis, love the series! can you tell us if the audible book will be available at the same time the book comes out? Also what date roughly this will be? Thanks

      The audio and ebook should release at roughly the same time — although it won’t be exact since it takes a little longer for ACX to process the audiobook.

      I don’t have an exact ETA yet, but I’m done with the first complete draft and have moved on to editing. So probably a couple months to handle editing and narration (fingers crossed!).
