I’ve got a bit of travel on in the next few weeks, which means there will be some articles coming – and I’d love to tell you about my start to finish resources that I use as an author (from AppSumo to ZZZZZ), Five essential author tools (including Evernote), and Sleep Hygiene for horror writers. […]
So yesterday, I had a quick summary through Black Monday, Salvagers and.
Today, I’m going to talk about more of the same, and tell you a bit about what the schedule looks like right now. Remember, I’ve got a very Douglas Adams view of deadlines – they whooosh over my head at speed, so I’m not sure if, in the sum of all things, that this won’t change again, but I do really want to get on with the books I actually have covers for, and move on with my novels and novellas.
Yesterday, like I said, was Black Monday, Salvagers.
Today, I’m going to tell you about some new…NEW stuff.
First though, I thought I’d talk about my new schedule.
Books will be issued May 30th and November 12th. My birthday and our handfasting anniversary weekend. Simple. That’s fiction novels. NOvellas could be up to once a month, or as they’re available in chapters on Wattpad.
Non-fiction and poetry is quarterly. 1st of the quarter, starting October 1st. I’m offsetting it slightly because I’ll actually be away the first time it would land in 2016.
A calendar will appear in the coming weeks though, so watch the sidebar.
TOMORROW, I’m going to talk to you about this year’s Nanowrimo books, of which one is a Salvagers rewrite, and one is also about to be mentioned.
So, hey, let’s hit that one first.
Subway Prophets is one of those books that hit me right between the eyes listening to ‘The Sound of Silence” by Simon and Garfunkel. I bet you can even name the line/verse I’m thinking of. But it’s grown from that, and has become one of the hardest books I’ve tried to write so far. It’s about a woman that can’t have children, but is the head of her village, out in the wilderness of Block B. So, she goes to Block A to meet with a woman that can have her child.
A tale of love, redemption, religion, hereditary and death. (2nd draft)
At the End of the World there are Dragons is a beautiful novel; one that touches on two of my passions and I think is a unique slant on the apocalypse – (beta ready)
It’s been six days since the apocalypse wiped out all bar a few people – so few, in fact, it’s hard to tell whether they’re alone or if the world has pockets of survivors scattered around.
Also almost ready to go into Beta are all of the other novellas I wrote this year for Nano 2015, but I’ll announce that to the beta group alone.
Abigail has always had a secret, and now that so many people have died, she’s finding it harder and hard to ignore it.
Finally, what’s next for Elliot. Well, he’s got to go track down a cult leader and those that have read Glass Block have the first half of the first chapter so know WHY. Beyond that, Morrigan, who only briefly appeared in Glass Block is going to be kidnapped, she’s going to have to deal with something devastating, and she has to choose, and Harper. Well, poor Harper discovers that the one thing he treasured has been exiled from his home and he has to go hunt her down, which means he’ll introduce the very adult but not Darkness side of those novels.
I hope this has tantalised you a little
