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!

WIP Wednesday: More Changes!

Don’t you just love the new year?

I do… it’s when I make a lot of changes and everything feels so fresh and new. It’s very stimulating and motivating. One of the biggest changes I’ve made is to my writing schedule. I get too bored if I’m only working on one project at a time, and it actually causes me to get less done. So, I’ve decided I need to go back to working on multiple projects like I used to.

Starting this week, I’m focusing on writing one serial chapter a day (well, on my writing days), and I’m working on my novel planning for the A God’s Deception series.

I’m also going to try and stagger it so I’m in different stages with each project I’m working on. I don’t want to be editing two things at once. That will just get crazy (especially since editing is so monotonous).

I’ve also decided that since the popularity of my serial is up, I’m going to start publishing individual episodes of Shadow Stalker on Amazon, Smashwords and other retail outlets again. Yay!!!

Here is the release schedule for those:

  • 5 April – Epsiode 19
  • 3 May – Episode 20
  • 7 June – Episode 21
  • 5 July – Episode 22
  • 2 August – Episode 23
  • 6 September – Episode 24

And, of course, for those who prefer to wait for the bundle, that will be released on the 22nd of November this year.

I’m also aiming to write a release a short story each month. We’ll see how that goes. I just miss writing short stories. They’re so much fun to write, and I want my readers to have something new from me more often. I’m hoping to have the first one released by the end of March, but I haven’t worked out a schedule for those yet. I’ll let you know!

In the meantime, don’t forget you can now get Shadow Stalker Parts 1 & 2 free if you haven’t read those yet.
