I have once again been a little remiss about posting. Blame Facebook, the nicer weather showing up, the solstice, or where it should actually lie with me. I have been pecking away at the next book in the series, A New World: Awakening. I am pleased to say that I am about 3/4 of the way through the draft. It felt like I was pushing an elephant when I started but it seems to be flowing much better over this past week or so. I will have to go back and look at the first part and possible rewrite it some. We’ll see.
When I first started this book, I didn’t think I had enough to write a whole book and I would have to draw on some of what was planned in the next to complete it. Well, now I’m having to shove stuff off to that book. Once again, the story has taken control and I’m at its mercy. A part that I was hoping I could eke 1/3 of the book about has now taken up most of it. Which leaves me in a dilemma. There were so many threads that needed exploring from the last book(s) and now they may need to be in the next one. I think I will be able to cover most of them but one needs its due status as a greater aspect but I think I’ve found a way to guide into it for the next one.
When you ask? Or maybe that is me asking. I am hoping to be finished by the end of the month so it looks like early July. There are a lot of things that could change that time frame – finishing the book for one. I want to thank everyone once again for all of the nice messages and great reviews. Each and every one of them are appreciated. Thank you!
The Summer of Zombie Blog Tour is going well and I hope those of you following have enjoyed the posts and interviews. I am admittedly lacking in writing some guest posts but will be submitting more in the near future. I have to tell you the bunch are a great group of folks and great authors. I am quite humbled to be included in their midst – Ian Woodhead, Armand Rosamilia, Mark Tufo, Dave Jeffery, and Todd Brown.
Well, I guess I’ll keep this short as the story is calling. I wish everyone a great day and week and hope it’s a prosperous one for all!
