Time to Make Some Choices

I’ve had to do quite a bit of thinking this weekend.  Thinking about how do I want to progress as an author.  I guess every author goes through this as they near the end of a project.  I have two questions that keep running through my head.  What do I want to write next?  How do I strengthen my name as an author.

The first question is easy enough.  I have probably a dozen or so half thought out story ideas that I can pick from.  Although, I’m trying to stay away from doing another series.  The second question is a bit harder.

I want to expand my reader base but that takes some time.  A lot of time if you’re an indie author.  Or at least that’s the case for me.  It might be beneficial for me to at least slow down my writing process to work on my platform.  The problem is that I don’t really like doing that.  It feels too much like I’m pushing myself onto people.  Sigh.

Thankfully, I don’t have to make any decisions right now.  Time of Prophecy still has quite a bit that needs to be written and Frank Tales is in the editing phase.  I won’t make a decision until those two projects are complete.

As always, stay strong my friends and until next timeh881741B3

The End of a Series

Three years ago, I published my first book and right now I’m diligently working on completing the whole story arch.  I’ve learned so much along the way.  I never knew how challenging it is to write a series.  I learned a lot about what kind of voice I want my books to have and my style as a writer.  I think this story (all three books) will always hold a special place in my heart.  With that being said, if everything goes right, Time of Prophecy will be released sometime in October of this year.  Yeah!  What this really means is that I need to buckle down and get back to work.  I spent most of today editing in between laundry loads but I need to carve out some more time in my week for writing. If I hope to meet my deadline, I will need more time than just the weekends.

Here’s to you characters of the Lost Guardian series!    Let’s finish this thing strong and together!
