Fantasy Science Fiction Work Projects Update

November Writing Projects Update

This is just a quick update on my current writing projects for last month:

1. Ways of Camelot Arthurian fantasy series- I had to make a tough decision on ROAD OF CLOUDS, ripping up much of its beginning for a major redo. I had to remove the first 3 chapters and condense the next 5 chapters into 3. It’s hard to drop so much material but I think readers will appreciate the results once I’m done. This takes ROAD OF CLOUDS from 10% complete to only 5%, but I am still committed to getting it done by early 2015.

2. Tyrants of Tolerance science fiction series- While wrestling with RoC  (see above), I took a break to start the first book in this Science Fiction Dystopia: TAG WARREN AND THE FRAGILE CITY, set in a fallen California in the near futureI really love the characters and story line. This is going to be a fun series. I even have the website started: TagWarren.com, although it is still very basic. The site will become richer as the story develops. This book is about 15% complete. Expected publication is early 2015, to be followed by the next two novels in the series soon thereafter (hopefully).

3. Cirian War Saga epic fantasy series- I am about 30% done with Book #2, TRUTH MOCKER, and holding. I haven’t done much with this series in 2014, due to its huge size (these books are 2-3 times as long as the others). I do look forward to getting back to the series, but it won’t be until early next year. I hope to complete two books in this series in 2015.

4. Non-fiction series- This month I didn’t do any work on the various guidebooks put out under Genuine HR’s various series. I may do so when I have more time at the end of the year, but they aren’t a high priority right now. We just aren’t seeing enough sales on these books yet.

Well, that’s it for November. I was hoping it would be a more productive month, but it was still fun creating what I could. Thanks for reading.

October Writing Projects

This is just a quick update on my current writing projects:

1. Ways of Camelot series- I am about 10% done with Book #3, ROAD OF CLOUDS. I was stalled for a bit until I realized that I was trying to squeeze too much into one volume. So, yes, there will be a Book #4, tentatively titled ROADS’ END.

The book is hitting its stride now that I’ve split it into two and started the Sci-Fi novel (see below). I now have some breathing room to let Thom mature a little and improve his magical skills before he has to face his ultimate foe in Book #4. It also lets me ratchet up the energy even more. Good stuff!

Road of Water coverBook #2, ROAD OF WATERS, is now out in trade paperback as well as e-book and I really love how its cover turned out. Sales have started slow for this Young Adult Fantasy series, but those who have read it are loving it, so I’m happy with that.

2. Tyrants of Tolerance series- I have jumped into writing Book #1 of this new series because I needed a bit of a break from the Camelot series. This novel doesn’t have a name yet, but is a Young Adult Sci-Fi/ Dystopia.

Has a great start, full of energy and emotion. Look forward to really digging into the story. I’m about 10% finished on this novel too.

3. Cirian War Saga series- I am about 30% done with Book #2, TRUTH MOCKER, and holding. I haven’t done much with this series in 2014, due to its huge size (these books are 2-3 times as long as the others). I do look forward to getting back to the series, but it won’t be until next year. I hope to complete two books in this series in 2015.

4. Non-fiction series- This month I didn’t do any work on the various guidebooks put out under Genuine HR’s various series. I may do so when I have more time at the end of the year, but they aren’t a high priority right now. We just aren’t seeing enough sales on these books yet.

Well, that’s it for October. Hopefully, November will be a much-more productive month. Thanks for reading.
