Writing Update for January 10, 1014
January 10, 2014 6 Comments
Books that WILL come out this year.
1. The Prophecies of Mortals
The fifth book of The Watchtower series is turning out to be one of the longer books I’ve written for the series, but there’s so much that needs to be told. I would be surprised if the final word count was close to 60-70k. I’m looking at a release date of late spring/early summer. Preferably the former.
2. The Saints of Belvedere Road
Some of you might remember me talking about this book a few years back, and how it made the query round, but that’s about it. I believe things happen for a reason, and as it turns out, this book was meant to be part of this series. Funny, as I wrote it back in 2008 NaNoWriMo and didn’t start working on the series until almost a year later. It’s just nice to see this book finding a home. Because this novel is finished, I should be able to put it out a few months after PROPHECIES comes out. I’d like it out by mid-summer, that way it would coincide with the timeline within the book.
3. The Possession of Mercy Moreau
This is my first paranormal romance and the first book in what I’m hoping will be another series. I’ve been researching Indie Press and am going to start querying them in a couple months. If that doesn’t work out, I can always put it out myself, but I’d like to see if it could be picked up first. Either way, this book will be published.
Books I HOPE will be out this year.
4. Book six of paranormal series.
I’d like to get this as-of-yet un-named book out by the holidays, but as it still has to be written, that’s asking a lot.
Ah, my Steampunk adventure. I’m in the process of a drastic revision (much like the one I did for MERCY), so this is another one on the wish list.
6. Arlington Creed
My second Steampunk book. I’ve been plotting out future books with this character and have about eight (must be my lucky number), with a very interesting plot twist, but I’m still trying to work out if I should introduce it right away or wait for a few books and then put it in.
7. Dark Fairy Tales (Darke’s Fairy Tales?)
I found several obscure tales online and have started writing a new spin to them. I have one planned out, and a good chunk of it started.
8. The Erotic Awakening of Brie
Another on my wish list. I have a second story written and plotted out a third. I’m not sure how many to include and as the title suggests, it’s going to be steamy.
This is my 2014 goal. Wouldn’t it be great if I could get them all done?
What are your writing goals for the new year?
