May 2011 Updates

Posted by:

Oh, I’ve been busy lately. Whew! I am presently working on five books, in no specific order:

#1 – Book 4 of The Survivor Chronicles to finish the series.
#2 – Book 1 of Songs of Sorbia, The Circle of Sorcerers, a new fantasy series.
#3 – Book 1 of a vampire book. I haven’t decided on the title yet.
#4 – Non-fiction self-publishing book (instructional)
#5 – The d10 Core Roleplaying Game System core rulebook. (along the lines of D&D, White Wolf pen and paper games, etc.)

Lots of work load. Of course, the Survivor Chronicles takes precedence because it actually has a due date of end of September. I want to get Circle of Sorcerers to the editor in August. #3 and #4 can wait a bit, and I really want to get #5 to final playtesting before the end of the year. I would love to finish it in 2011, but I don’t know if it will be possible. Designing roleplaying systems, although the system for this is basically finished, is not an easy process to outline on paper so others can understand it.

The self-publishing book was slated for this year, but I may wait on it until Q1 of 2012. I don’t want to release it in 2011 if the standards change right after Christmas like they sometimes do. I want the “2012 Edition” to be valid for at least 2012, if not for a year or two afterward.

Just wanted to let you guys know what’s been going on. Some people do read my little blogs. 🙂

    Yes, I do read you blog. I check every few days for updates. 🙂 I am waiting patiently for my 100,000+ word book 4. 😀 Did not know you were planning to start a vamp series, good deal, I like vamp books!

      Hehe. I really appreciate it. Yes, I have been working on a vampire novel which should be out sometime late late this year or maybe next year. It’s much less young adult and a bit darker, though. I will probably post some early parts of it later.

      I am definitely making book 4 longer. It’s about a quarter to a third of it’s length at almost 30000 words so far. Forgive any typos in this, replying from an iPhone

    Geesh, every body here got sick,, hmm, well me and the kids anyway, and what do you know, I haven’t checked back in a week and you left a reply!

    30,000 words already? music to my eyes! No worries about typos in a comment, I am not that big of a grammer police 😉

    Oh, certainly. I have to keep in touch with me peeps. 😛 I hope you and the kids are doing better. It’s an absolute hell on earth when kids get sick, I know about that one.

    Yes, yes, 30,000 words or thereabouts so far. I’m usually prolific with my writing. I’m just glad there are some people out there enjoying it. 🙂
