Ah, the Holidays.

After continuing some writing on all of my works in progress, plotting out a new novel, and jotting down another vague idea to be developed at a later time, I took a little break from the whirlwind of writing life and put a little effort into making my living area a little more liveable before the holidays sprung on me and tied up my hands.
However, in few days I shall be on vacation and visiting my best friend and darling nephew until the New Year. As always, I do intend to leave some time for writing, but we know how that goes. Fun festivities, playing with my darling nephew and of course drinking.
I will, of course, keep working away at my works in progress. I’ll keep you all updated as best I can and hopefully soon you’ll be hearing an update about one of these stories being completed!

Works In Progress

As promised, here is a post on everything I am currently working on.
I have several projects that I am currently working on. I am actively in process of writing two new novels, revising a third, and I am in the process of plotting out another novel.

Depths of Darkness – the (hopefully) long awaited next novel in the Saints & Sinners series that takes place before the currently published novel, Road to Redemption. This novel is focussed on Iain’s story before he became a gatekeeper. Iain has recently retired as a detective with the La Port PD, but is brought back as a consultant after several horrendous and mysterious murders were committed. It is currently in progress as a first draft which is not quite halfway complete.

Good Intentions – this is the first book in what is expected to be a four book series. It is called the Shadowlands Series and is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi. Taking place over a century after seismic upheaval, heavy solar flare activity and a devastating virus have left few survivors behind. Fragmented societies have grown, but one man, Rubel Sabine, thinks that the world could be greater than ever was before and is willing to do almost anything to make his vision a reality. Good Intentions is currently being revised.

Bitter Blindness – this is book two in the Shadowlands Series and takes place approximately ten years after the first novel. This book deals with the consequences of the actions and decisions made by many characters in the first novel. Some plans come together and others begin to fall apart as the land becomes polarized and the threat of war looms over their heads. This novel is currently in progress as a first draft and is also about halfway complete.

I am planning on having completed all four first drafts of this series prior to submitting them to a publisher. Wish me luck in finding the right home for this exciting new series! 

So what else is in the works? Well, as mentioned above, I did have a new novel idea come to me recently and have only just begun plotting it to see if the idea is workable. Of course, I have dozens of ideas waiting to be worked out. I’ll keep you up-to-date on how all my current works in progress are doing!

Whoops! I slipped

So, it's been more than a year since I've posted anything here. I bet no one reads this anymore, not that I had many readers before.

However, here I am, back on the wagon hopefully. I'm still working on the series I planned in the last post I wrote. I am in the midst of book 2/4 right now.  In fact, in my next post I'm going to tell you all about what I am working on!

This post is just to let everyone know that I am still alive and hale!
