17/11/28 Writing Update

A few things to update.

Adventures on Brad

A Dungeon’s Soul releases tomorrow! Quite excited to see it out. We’ll hopefully have the audiobook version out early next year if things work out well.

Do let me know if you would love to see more of Daniel & crew as that’ll move them up in my writing queue.

The System Apocalypse

Book 3 of the System Apocalypse has finished its first run through. I’ve got an Editor booked for end December, so I have to finish my edits by the middle of the month and hopefully get the books out to beta readers soon after.

That being said, there’s a bunch of scenes that need to be added and I have to go through the entire book with this being the busiest time for me in my day job, so… yeah. It might be end January instead of mid-January for this to release.

I have edited Lana’s short-story and I’ll be sending it out in December. So keep an eye out on your e-mail inbox if you’re subscribed to the newsletter!

Other Projects

While I give my brain a short-break from John & crew, I’ve started working on a new series that will fill the in-between slot left empty by the Adventures on Brad. It’s basically an urban fantasy with a LitRPG twist. It’s moving along quite well, though it seems to be shifting towards being more GameLit than LitRPG (i.e. significantly less game mechanics). We’ll see how it goes.

I do have a Virtual Reality LITRPG series idea in the works too. I’ve tackled writing in it a few times, including finishing up a short-story. It might end up being a series of short-stories rather than a full novel. Unfortunately, the 2nd story hit a writer’s block so it’s (once again) on hold till inspiration strikes.

 

Writing update

So. Update on writing.

Book 3 of the Adventures on Brad series is complete and getting edited. I need to get some more editing on it done since the basic pass was not complete. Hopefully we’ll see book 3 in the next few weeks.

Book 3 of the System Apocalypse is at… 25k words or so. Word says 28k but that includes various notes / blurbs / thoughts / etc.  I am stuck, since book 3 is somewhat more complicated and so I’m having to actually plot the book a bit more than I normally do. I’m… uncertain if what I’ve got plotted is workable, and how much of this is because of usual writer jitters and how much is truth and how much because my brain is dead.

Oh yeah, on that note – brain is dead. I’ve been fighting a cold and a bunch of minor health stuff for the last 3 weeks. Since I have a day job, by the time I get back to writing, often I’m just wiped. So I’m not feeling super-creative right now.  Which is why I’m holding off on writing the ‘hard’ book since I’m not entirely sure what I’m writing is good.

Lastly, good news – the exclusive to newsletter subscribers side story for Lana is written. I actually had a few ideas for it, but ended up writing a slice-of-life story due to above brain deadness. I’m going to need to find some time when my brain works to edit it. It’s a story that is likely never going to be publicly released.  It has no plot, no narrative beginning or ending. It’s very much a ‘this happened’ story but it’s a fun look into the background things happening in Whitehorse.

That’s about it for updates. Leave comments if you have any thoughts, etc.
