Last week was quite the whirlwind and honestly, I wouldn’t have changed it for the world. The launch of my first ever published book was a success and I’m incredibly humbled by those who have supported me and the generous reviews the book has received on Amazon, B&N and GoodReads.
Now… I get back to work.
There’s no rest when it comes to writing. We may take small chunks of time off to recover from a project but our work is never done. You can see from that nice sidebar to the right that I have quite a few projects that are still in progress. I haven’t forgotten about them and now, it’s time to address those.
With ADE (I’m going to begin referring to As Darkness Ends by this at times since it’s easier for me) out the door, my focus is shifting back to Spirit Hackers. I am currently 1/3 through my final revisions and it’s time to buckle down and get it completed. This book has been many years in the making and I’m so close to the home stretch I can feel it. The book is good. Really good. The idea: solid. Even three years after first coming up with the idea, I still love this book. That says a lot.
For the rest of September, I will be working exclusively on edits to Spirit Hackers. Once done, the querying will begin along my hopes of landing an agent who can see the potential in such a riveting story. Based on the pace of my edits, I should have the book nearly complete by then but of course, I’ve made promises like that before. The book is done when it’s done but I also don’t see myself having this book in the ‘Work In Progress’ category for much longer.
If you’re wondering about Book Two of ADE, rest assured that I have ideas written down and a rough idea of what will happen. There will be more on that when the time is right.
