Coming Soon

bernie negotiationWhat is coming soon out of the creative (some would say warped) mind of Steve LeBel?

Steve is currently working on two projects: a new book and a new novelette.

The Universe Builders: Bernie and the Wizards.

The new book begins where Bernie and the Putty (book #1) left off.  The new book will star young Bernie as he begins his career as a troubleshooter.  When a defective universe is found, Bernie is called in to fix it.  This isn’t as easy as it may sound. As you know, Bernie isn’t one of those hell-fire-and-brimstone gods who just smites anything that gets in his way. He happens to hold the quaint idea that life is sacred, which makes his job much harder when he tries not to hurt anyone.

work 21The first assignment is a world called Photox where the people work to produce guid-peppers, an expensive delicacy among the gods.  For some unknown reason, they are no longer producing the peppers.  Bernie’s assignment is to figure out the problem and fix it.  No matter what.

The first draft is done.  The first edit has been completed.  There will be at least two more edits before the book will offered to beta readers for comments and suggestions.  Once Steve incorporates their feedback, he’ll send the book to a professional editor who will get it in final form.

Then it will actually be published.  Our goal is for Summer 2017.
