I’ve been really sick for nearly the last two weeks, so I’ve unfortunately fallen way behind. I would have to write a bit over 6k words a day for the next three days to win NaNoWriMo. I’m still not giving up though. It’s still doable as long as my health holds out.
On the plus side, I’ve almost got the first book in my A God’s Deception series completely written, and the other two books are completely outlined now. All I have to do is write them, and if I keep up the 2500 words a day goal, it should be done in no time at all.
I still have a ton of editing to do after that, which will likely take 2 to 3 months to complete, but if I can get it done, there’s a good chance that I’ll be able to release the first book in about 8 or 9 months from now. I haven’t decided how I’m going to work out the release yet for the next two books. I was considering doing book 2 six weeks after the first and then the third 3 months after that. We’ll see though.
Once I’m finished writing this series, I’ll finish up Shadow Stalker though, before editing the new series. I know a lot of people are waiting to read the end of that. I’m going to write all 4 of the last 4 episodes before releasing them though. I’m finding it much easier to write this way now.
I’m in week 3 of NaNoWriMo. It’s day 15, which means we’re halfway through. I should be at 25k words, but I’ve fallen a bit behind. Only by a little over 2k words though, so I will be able to catch up fairly easily. I might do some writing over the weekend to catch up.
The story is going well too. I’m really happy with it so far. After the first draft is done, I’m going to have to work out a lot of the world-building details, plus I’ve introduced a few other characters that weren’t originally planned for.
It’s going to be a pretty cool story when it’s done though. I can’t wait for you all to read it now! 😀

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Saturday Sneak Peek, but that’s probably because I haven’t written much in a while. Thanks to NaNoWriMo, I’m on a writing spree…
I’m working on the first book in my A God’s Deception series, so I’m going to give you a little sneak peek of that. Keep in mind, these sneak peeks are totally unedited versions, so it could change in the final version of the book. But at least it gives you a taste of what’s to come!
“I really miss the old executions,” he said. “I was disappointed when the council changed to a more humane method of execution, labeling the old ones archaic and unnecessary. I’ve always believed if someone committed a crime, they deserved whatever punishment they received.”
He’d go on like that for hours, describing every detail of the execution she faced. It wasn’t as simple as being dunked in scalding water. They were going to slowly pour small buckets of boiling water over her until she died. After each bucket was dumped they’d wait for her cries to die down before doing the next.
“Eventually, your skin will seem to just melt off your body, but even then you won’t die right away. The torment can go on for hours or even days before you die. The best part is everyone in the city will be lined up to take their turn in dumping the scalding water over your body.” He ran his hand down her body as he said this.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek. I’m hoping to release the books in this series starting late next year. If you’d like to read some of my other work, Shadow Stalker Part 1 (Episode 1 – 6) is a free download. You can also get Shadow Stalker Part 2 (Episodes 7 – 12) by signing up below:
