#WIP Wednesday: Lot’s Going On!

It’s been a while since my last WIP Wednesday. I have to admit that I haven’t been doing a lot of writing, but I do have a ton going on. A lot of it in my family life, but even more in my writing life.

First, I’m still working on Episode 21 of my Shadow Stalker serial. I’m currently writing Chapter 4, so I’m getting there. I’ve decided with the last few episodes of this serial, I’ll just release them as I write them rather than having set release dates. With my health issues as they are, it just puts less stress on me, and since deciding this I’ve actually been getting more writing done. Yay!

With my future serial, I’m going to write an entire season first (22 episodes which are shorter than the Shadow Stalker episodes), then set a release schedule for each episode, the mini bundles (which will be 4 or 5 episodes each), and the season bundle (which will be all 22 episodes).

The reason I’m doing it this way is so readers don’t have to wait so long in between each episode. I’ll be releasing the individual episodes every two weeks. The price will be set at 25 cents per episode. For people who prefer to buy from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or the other online retailers, I’m putting together the mini bundles since I can’t set the price lower than 99 cents. Those will be released every couple of months or so (depending on how many episodes there are in each).

As far as my novels, I’m still working on A God’s Deception. Rather than just planning out the first book, I’ve decided to plan out the entire series first. I’m also considering writing the entire series before releasing the individual books. There are many advantages to this. One that I really like is that I can make changes to earlier books as I’m writing. One I know most of my readers will like is that I can release the books closer together so there won’t be a long wait between books.

I’m doing a survey now on my newsletter asking my readers their opinion on whether they want me to release the books as I write them, or if they’d prefer waiting until the entire series is written. If you’d like to get a word in on it, sign up below before the end of the month and let me know which you’d prefer.

Also, at the request of my daughter, I’m starting a new middle-grade series based on the daughter of one of my Shadow Stalker characters. I don’t want to say who because I don’t want to give out spoilers for those who haven’t read Shadow Stalker yet. My daughter is a budding artist and will be doing the artwork for this series as well. It’s really exciting for both of us to have a project to work on together.

That’s about it for now. Have a great week and happy reading!

WIP Wednesday: New Short Story Coming!

 

Yay! I have finished the short story for March. It’s with the editor right now, but it will be ready for its 15th of March release date. It’s called, The Dream Crypt (An Onyx Warrior Short Story), and I’m seriously considering doing a series based on it. If you’d like to read more about it, I have a page set up for it and it’s even available for pre-order in some places.

The Dream Crypt

I’ve also finished Episode 19 of Shadow Stalker and that’s with the editor as well. I’ll be starting episode 20 this week and should have it done by next week. Episode 19 is due to be released the 5th of April.

I’m still in the planning stages for A God’s Deception series. It’s more involved than I first anticipated since I’m essentially building an entirely new society that has developed around a religion that I’m also creating. It’s been interesting though. The story has changed a lot from the original concept, but I think it’ll be a lot better now.

I’ll be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo next month, so I’m hoping to get a good start on the story then. I set a pretty low word count because my daughter is off from school for the first two weeks in April, and I don’t schedule any new stuff when she’s not in school. I usually use that time (when I’m not doing stuff with my daughter) to catch up if I’ve fallen behind. So I won’t start writing the novel until the second half of the month.

That’s about all for now. Don’t forget to sign up below to get a free book!

WIP Wednesday: #AmWriting Like Crazy!

This has been a crazy year so far. I’m really glad I went back to my old style of writing where I work on more than one project at a time. It really works for me.

I’ve got three projects going on at any one time now. I’ve committed myself to writing one short story a month. If it’s not for a specific publication, I’ll release it on its own. Then when I have enough of them, I’ll release them as an anthology for those who prefer bigger books as opposed to smaller ones.

The first one is going to be released the 15th of March. I’m in the process of editing it now, so it should be done in plenty of time. I can’t wait for that. I’ll post a sneak peek of that story this coming Saturday, so keep an eye out for that.

Of course, there’s Shadow Stalker, and I’ve been doing some writing for that as well. Episode 19 is due to be released the 5th of April. I really think people will love Part 4. There are going to be a lot of surprises. 😉

And finally I’m still in the planning stages with my first book in the A God’s Deception series, but I’m almost ready to start outlining the book. I expect I should be finished writing by the end of April and then I can start the editing. Of course, this one I’ll be submitting to Crimson Edge and hopefully publishing with them, so I can’t give a projected release date at this point. But I’m going to hope for the end of the year on that one.

It feels great to be writing more regularly again and actually getting stuff done. And I think I enjoy having something to publish more often too. Between the short stories and Shadow Stalker episodes, I should have something new each month. Sometimes even twice a month. So it’s really exciting.

Oh, and I should also mention, with the short stories, I’ll be experimenting with other genres. They’ll all pretty much be in the horror/thriller/paranormal/dark fantasy category because that’s what I tend to write, but if you have a suggestion or a challenge for me to write in a completely different genre (just for the fun of it) leave a comment below or contact me! I’d love to hear from you.

Until next time… happy reading!
