The start to 2023 has been interesting to say the least. I’m sticking to my schedule regarding my secret project and the first draft remains on course to be completed by the end of January. My characters, as usual, have decided that they don’t want to stick to the original plot and have gone off on their own tangent – and it works 🙂 Also a new story waved its hand and as much as I wanted to set it to one side and focus on the book I’m currently working on, the main character insisted I start on his. So I now have two books on the go.
Now, concerning the Hellbound Chronicles and what I alluded to in my previous blog post. They will continue with the old characters and some new. The novels will be the next chapter in the chronicles and will come under the heading of “The Hellbound Chronicles: The Next Generation.” I’m aiming to get the first book out either at the end of this year or the start of 2024. I will let you know more when I’ve made a decision, which will be based on the number of books I’m already aiming to get out this year. I’m not going to rush any of them, including this new one, and put out subpar novels. That wouldn’t be fair to either you the readers or the characters.
That’s all for now, so back into the writing cave I go 🙂
I hope you all enjoyed the New Year festivities. I’ve just about gotten over mine and I am now getting back to work. The fourth book in the Hellbound Chronicles – Realms and Retribution, is available across Amazon and should, fingers crossed, be hitting other retailers soon. There has been a change regarding what my plans were concerning where the story would go next. I had intended on doing books on the respective characters to bring their stories to completion. However, the muse, no doubt nudged by those characters, has pushed me in another direction. All I can say for the moment is that the Hellbound Chronicles are far from over 🙂
I am currently working on my secret project, which is in the research stage. I’m hoping to start work on the first draft next week and I’m aiming to get it completed no later than the end of January. One of my major issues last year was time management, so I’m determined to get a handle on that this year.
I am also working on getting my writing career on a more solid footing and getting to grips with areas where I can see I’ve been falling short. I will do my best to keep you all updated on how that is going and share with you my highs and lows as I move forward.
Well, that’s all for now. So back into the world of researching I go 🙂
