Update: What's Ryan Working On? (When He's Working) / by Ryan Hill


Hey all!

Very excited to announce that I've submitted final edits of my zombie novel DEAD NEW WORLD to my publisher, Curiosity Quills. It's coming out on Oct. 13, and be on the lookout for a Goodreads giveaway (or two) before then!

I also finalized edits on SONG OF SAM, a short prequel leading up to the events in THE BOOK OF BART. It will be available as a free download on Amazon, so be on the lookout in the next few weeks for that.

With edits out of the way, that leaves me in the writing phase of, well, everything. Fortunately, the next, oh, five years are pretty much set in stone, unless I'm inspired to write something else, in which case it isn't set in stone. Or maybe it is. Or maybe I won't write any of these. Who knows with me.


On top of SONG OF SAM, I'm currently writing Bart 2, which is tentatively titled BART OF DARKNESS. There's not set number of books in this series, and it can go on for as long as I wish. Or as long as people want to read it. Or the publisher is willing to put it out. It's all subjective, really. Regardless, I'm writing BART OF DARKNESS right now.


DEAD NEW WORLD is the first in what will (hopefully) be a trilogy of terror, with DARK NEW WORLD and THE NEW WORLD coming. Your guess is as good as mine as to when these will be written, but they will be written, provided I feel like it and people are interested.


This is the book I recently submitted to my publisher. It's sort of a paranormal GOONIES. I'd like to write at least one more in this world, which will be called GRAVEYARD OF THE ATLANTIC. Or GRAYBEARD TAKES A WIFE. 


I have some short stories I want to write, and I also have what I consider to be my 1984 in the works as well, and may be my next after BART OF DARKNESS. We'll see. I'm also working on writing a script for Krystal Wade's excellent novel CHARMING. 

That's all, really, as that will probably take me into my forties (sigh) to write. Regardless, lots of stuff in the pipeline here in my world!
