Writing: What’s Next

Thank you so much to everyone who helped make Broken World’s release day such a success! I am so happy with how it went and hope that everyone enjoys reading the latest instalment!

Now that it is out there, I am planning what I will be working on next. So far, I am undecided between starting Book 4 in the series or returning to where I left off with Demon’s Life. I have the first scene for Perfect World 4 already mapped out in my head and the series will be taken in exciting new directions going forward! Demon’s Life is halfway complete and it would make sense to finish that first so I am leaning towards doing this. 

I also want to continue my fantasy novel which is also currently in progress! I would love to do all 3 but the most I can manage is probably two at once. I always like to have two books on the go at any one time as it helps if I have writer’s block with one I can change to the other until inspiration returns.

Once I have decided I will be sure to post an update and let you all know. If you have a preference of what you would like to see next do please comment and let me know, as I always take my readers’ thoughts into consideration 🙂

Update

As I have not been on social media that much over the last couple of weeks, I thought I would write a quick update explaining the reason for my absence.

I’ve been suffering from a really bad viral infection which also resulted in a burst ear drum! I have been resting up and am feeling a lot better now apart from not being able to hear much in my left ear. My doctor told me this should improve over the next few weeks so fingers-crossed it does.

This means I am behind with my reading and writing so there will be no monthly reading list for a little while until I can catch up. I’m starting to look at Perfect World 3 again and hope to have an update on this very soon.

I hope everyone is well and I am looking forward to catching up with you all!

Progress Report

Progress Report

As it’s been a while since I took a break from social media to concentrate on my own works, I thought I would post this update to let you all know how everything is going.

I have now finished all my edits of Perfect World 3. It will be going for beta reading shortly, leaving me free to concentrate on other things for a while. I have made a start on the cover design and I am super excited about what I have so far! Hopefully soon I can share this with you all as well as the title of book 3!

I am also working on the print edition of New Era (Perfect World #2) and I hope to have this finished in a few weeks. The plan is to release both kindle and print editions of Perfect World 3 at the same time as I always seem to be playing catch up with the print copies!

As well I have started writing book 4. At the moment there are 5 planned books in the series, but there may be a potential for more.

I haven’t worked much on my Demon’s Blood series, but I have been planning some things. I want to concentrate on Demon’s Past before going back to where Demon’s Life left off and picking up with Koji and Atsuo there.

So I have a lot planned and hope to be able to reveal more details of Perfect World 3 in the coming weeks!

Novel Updates

As it’s been a while since my last update, I thought I would update you all as to how my progress is going and what’s been happening lately.

Perfect World series

Book 3 is now complete and I’m currently editing this! I am aiming to get all the edits finished by the end of June and then I can start thinking about submitting it for proofing and cover design. I’m also still working on the re-print for Adam and the print copies of Perfect World and New Era. I hope to be able to make some more progress with them very soon as well.

Demon’s Blood universe

I am about halfway through the next instalment of the series and would love to get this finished by the end of the year. 

Starting from tomorrow, Gay Book Promotions is running a 7 day series tour for me. I will be linking the posts on social media so do please follow that. There will also be a giveaway running too during the event. 

General updates

I am trying to get back into social media again. I prefer not to comment about my personal life, but I haven’t been well for much of the year (it’s not Covid-related) so I have only been able to post when I can. I am hoping things are turning a corner so I can be more active again for the summer and second half of the year. I hope everyone is keeping well and I look forward to catching up with you all! 

Future Projects

It’s been a hectic few months since Adam’s release and until now I haven’t had time to post about what’s next from me, although there has been a lot going on behind the scenes!

First of all I want to say a massive thank you to my family, friends, fellow authors, readers, bloggers and everyone who helped with Adam’s release – I appreciate the support so much 🙂

In a few weeks you will see my website and blog merge together to form one site so all things writing, reading, reviewing and collecting are in one place! There may be a bit of email downtime at the end of July so please Tweet me or comment on Facebook if you need to get hold of me during the last few days of July.

I’m currently working on the follow up to Demon’s Blood. It’s very much in the draft stages but hopefully at some point during 2017 you’ll find out what happens to Taku, Thane and Akito!

My other work in progress is Book 2 of the Perfect World series.  I haven’t got a release date for this yet but I’ll keep you all updated on it’s progress throughout the end of this year and into 2017.

I’m also going to be taking part in NaNoWriMo again this year and I’m really excited to be re-working a fantasy novel that I first drafted over ten years ago!

So that’s everything I’m working on at the moment! It may seem all quiet but behind the scenes there is so much going on and much to look forward to from me!
