I’m a bit behind at the moment. Episode 20 of my Shadow Stalker serial should have been out last week, but because of a viral infection taking over our house, that didn’t happen. In fact, I’m still writing it, but it will be ready to go by next week.
Here’s a sneak peek…
We had already been hiking through these tunnels for over two hours. There was no way I was going to go back now. “We’ll make due.”
I stopped at the bottom of the incline.
Makari seemed stunned. “How are you doing this?”
“I have no idea. It’s as though something is guiding me.”
“I hope it’s someone who actually wants to help and not someone who wants to get us lost or killed,” Jade said.
“Trust me.” I knew there was nothing malevolent about our guide. It was likely the shadow people. “I’ll go first, then Jade and Makari. Makari, you’ll have to help Jade with the climb.”
I imaged he had already guessed as much. Thank goodness the tunnels through here were narrow. The walls had enough jagged edges to easily use as footholds for the climb. I stayed just ahead of Jade letting her know where to place her feet, while Makari helped her with leverage and making sure she didn’t lose her footing. It was slow going.
Some jagged edges were loose, so I was being extra careful, but when the rock shifted I lost my balance and slid down the incline.
Hope you enjoyed the little sneak peek. Sign up below and be one of the first to read Episode 20 when it’s released!
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.
