Friday Writing Update

Friday Writing Update

Three weeks after my surgery and I’m finally getting back into writing blog posts again. I did a bit in the days/weeks afterward, but I just didn’t couldn’t get into the feel of it. No motivation at all. I haven’t felt like that in years.


The Watchtower Series: Sympathy for the Demon (book four)

I sent the MS to my editor. I’m still on schedule for a May release. I must drive her nuts. She’s American (I’m Canadian, btw), and she email me this morning and asked if I wanted the American wording of certain words or Canadian, as I’ll use both. Whoops. Sorry Karen.


Omens and Portends (book five)

I have one chapter written so far and I’ll start working on this again come Monday.


The Saints of Belvedere Road (Side novel)

I’ve gone through the first five chapters, and so far, there’s not much that has to be revised. I’ve gone through this novel I don’t know how many times, that I hope I’ll remember to add in where it needs to connect it to The Watchtower series.


Scifi Series: The Carriers

A slight boo-boo with this. I stated one character’s name at the beginning of the story was Marcus, but then, somehow, I changed it to Alan. Not good. Anyway, easily fixed. There’s supposed to be two adult male characters so I’ll just make them brothers.


Steampunk Series: Gutterchilde

I re-wrote the first chapter of this story. I took out the rape scene, and killed off a character. The character death was something I didn’t expect, but as I was going through the revised outline, I realized I would have two characters doing the same thing. Can’t have that. I’ve also introduced both romantic leads in this chapter, and the paranormal element as well. It’s a big chapter.


Erotic Romance Series: The Possession of Mercy Moreau

Re-wrote the first chapter of this story as well. I put the MC in more of a dire circumstance that forces her to take the job in the mansion. I’m still unsure about the haunting; whether the spirit should be Victorian era or not.


So how is your writing coming along? Anything interesting pop out at you this week?

  1. I’m happy to hear you feel well enough to get back into things. Heck, I have trouble writing blog posts and I haven’t had surgery! Good luck with all the pies your fingers are in!
