I’ve talked here before about “Warder: Changing Guard”. It’s been  while, though, so, for those of you who don’t recall – or who missed those posts – that book is a novella. It’s Book 1 of a series. The series is based on a comic book project that I tried for years to get off the ground. A draft was turned in for editing some time ago. Well, my wife and I have been discussing it, and are now planning to wait a bit on allowing the release of “Warder: Changing Guard”.

Why?

Now, rather than “Warder: Changing Guard” being just the release, and the launch of a new series, it will be part of something larger. Just what that is, you’ll all need to wait, and see. I don’t want to spill too many beans here, and now.

What does this mean in the short term? Come back for tomorrow’s post to find that out!

More Ideas

ravenesque

Not long ago I mentioned here the ideas I have that I’m planning to work into “Ravenesque: Un-Familiar”. Since I’ve set that outline aside, more and more ideas have been coming to mind. One of them will not play much of a role in this opening novella of the series, but will have far-reaching impact throughout the series itself. The more I think about this, the more excited I get about it. More and more I’m looking forward to wrapping up the outline for “Warder: Sometimes Magick Just Isn’t Enough”, and getting back to “Ravenesque: Un-Familiar”!

Filling In Blanks

Several times recently I’ve talked here on this website/blog about difficulties I’ve been having with one of my works-in-progress. That project being, of course, my urban fantasy novella “Ravenesque: Un-Familiar”. Even though I’ve set that aside, for the moment, in favor of devoting my writing time to other projects, I’m still working on that book mentally. And I’ve had a bit of a breakthrough.

There’s a character that I had planned to bring to bring in later in the series. I had thought maybe about the third book in the series, or so. But, it’s occurred to me that he could be worked into a scene in this first book quite easily. Even if he doesn’t take on the larger role I have planned for him until a book or two later, bringing him into the first one should add more depth and layers to this first installment. I like the new ideas for doing so, and may well run with them. That being the case, I might be hopping back over to “Ravenesque: Un-Familiar” after I wrap up what I’m currently working on – the outline for the second Warder novella, “Warder: Sometimes Magick Just Isn’t Enough”.

Please Leave Reviews

One of the biggest ways for a fan/reader to help an author is to leave a review of a book you’ve read. The more reviews a book has, the more likely it is to sell more copies.

Find my own currently available books at the below links. I’m using only the Amazon URLs here for the sake of simplicity. They can be found via other retails, too.

2nd “Warder” Book

Warder_Logo

Well the yWriter5 software I’ve been using to do an outline on the rework of “Ravenesque: Un-Familiar” works well as far as that goes. But it’s far and away from the outlining method I was trained to use. On top of that, the basic plot structure of that first “Ravenesque” book is still giving me problems. I guess that book simply isn’t to be at this point in time.

So…

For now I’m putting the first “Ravenesque” project on hold. I’m going to work on the next sasquatch article in the series of those I’m writing for the Bigtruth blog. Once that’s done, I’ll start work on the second “Warder” novella. The first of those, “Warder: Changing Guard”, is currently in edits. As I keep finding my thought process drawn toward that series, anyway, I hope the second book in that series won’t fight me the way the first “Ravenesque” book is.

Smoothing Things Out

ravenesque

A few times recently I’ve talked on this website/blog about the problems I’m having with writing the urban fantasy novella “Ravenesque: Un-Familiar”. I’m still in the process of smoothing some of those problems out. At the same time, I’m getting used to using the yWriter5 software for outlining purposes. The project is moving along slowly at this point, but picking up speed. The outlining stage of the project is about 3/4 done. For those of you who are awaiting the release of this project, I thank you for your patience. I hope the end result will be a suitable reward for you all!

“Quagmire Fen” On OmniLit

quagmirefen_Cover

My critically-acclaimed novella, “Quagmire Fen” is also now available on OmniLit!

Bog skulks are small, mysterious creatures with vicious teeth and claws. They turned up in Quagmire Fen some time ago. No one seems to know what they are or where they came from.

Spencer Foster is a young man who has lived his entire life in the poor backwater of Quagmire Fen. He despises the swamp, and wants only to leave and start a new life in the city with his girlfriend. But his callous drunkard of a father has other ideas.

Very soon, Spencer’s life is irrevocably changed. His destiny is now linked to the bog skulks and Quagmire Fen.

What are the bog skulks? Where did they come from? What is the connection between Spencer Foster and the odd beings he’s given so little thought to?
