I was recently asked by a reader to provide a timeline of when the various books occur, especially when it comes to the Clan Beginnings series. I’ve been meaning to do this for myself, as I am starting to get confused as to when certain events happened. It seems like I’m constantly going back and looking at older books to get my bearings. The Kalquor saga is growing faster than even I can keep up with.
So to that end, I have done my best to figure out the ‘when’ of each book, whether already written or in the planning stages. Here is what I came up with, though knowing me, I might have made some miscalculations. If you catch me placing something in the wrong sequence, do me a favor and tell me. Heaven knows, I need all the help I can get!
My ‘zero point’ is Armageddon. The timeline is based around that occurrence. Here’s what I have:
Clan, Honor, and Empire (Clan Rajhir’s WIP): 55 years before Armageddon
Clan and Crown (Clan Clajak’s WIP): 40 years before Armageddon
Clan and Conviction: 16 years before Armageddon
To Clan and Conquer: 6 years before Armageddon
Clan Companions 1 (Untitled WIP): 4 years before Armageddon
Alien Embrace : Approximately 2 years prior to Armageddon
Alien Rule, Michaela (WIP), and Clan Bacoj Beginnings (Untitled WIP): Approximately one and a half years prior to Armageddon
Alien Conquest, Sister Katherine: Armageddon occurs during these books
Shalia’s Diary: Starts 2 months after Armageddon
Alien Salvation: 6 months after Armageddon
Alien Slave, Brianna’s Clan (WIP): Over a year after Armageddon
Alien Redemption: 2 years after Armageddon
Alien Refuge: 3 years after Armageddon
Alien Caged (WIP): Almost 4 years after Armageddon
Alien Indiscretions (WIP): 4 years after Armageddon
Alien Hostage (WIP): 4 and a half years after Armageddon
Okay, I have something else to put out there to the readers. Like many of you, I adore physical books as well as e-books. However, I have begun to pull away from putting my own books in print. The last one I did was Alien Refuge. I’m not sure I want to bother with putting the next one, Alien Caged, in any format besides e-book. While I make some money from print books, it’s little enough that I can live without it (especially given the aggravation of formatting it). If you will do me the kindness of voting on the poll at the top right of the blog, answering whether or not you plan to buy Alien Caged in print, I would be most appreciative. Thanks!
