If you aren’t aware yet, I have a private Facebook group where readers can partake in giveaways, get sneak peeks at unpublished works, talk about books, and generally have some fun!
Above is our new group banner. With 400 group members, it’s becoming a wonderful place to interact with other fans of my books, and general bookworms.
Hope to see you there!
Hello everyone, I’m into the last round of the Savage revisions, and I wanted to say that I’m now writing the series as novels rather than novellas. I’m about to go back and rewrite Bear Heart as a novel also. This brings me to an important point, the timeline of the world and how it relates to each series.
So far I have 14 books planned in the healers world. Savage will be the 7th book currently published in the Healers’ world. At the end of book 6 in the Klawdia series, Frozen Huntress (the first draft is already written) the perspective of the world shifts to Adenine’s perspective. And at the end of the Healers series, we’ll be seeing two first-person, and opposing, perspectives narrating the world.
So here is the layout:
Book 1: Wild (Formally Bear Heart)
Book 2: Refuge
Book 3: Savage (October 2016 release)
Book 4: —
Book 5: —
Book 6: Frozen Huntress
Healers of Meligna
Book: 1 Concealed Power
Book: 2 Blood Healing
Book 3: Blood Sacrifice
Book 4: Forsaken Power
Book: 5 — (The Queen of Arcania is a title I’m considering)
The Princesses of Arcania
Book: 1 —
Book: 2 —
Book: 3 —
Depending on how well the Princesses of Arcania does in terms of popularity, there may be more than three books.
Yesterday I put down 6 chapters on Savage: The third book in the Klawdia series, yesterday. That’s about 8,000 words of pretty decent writing. Hoping to type three more chapters today (I’m exhausted from the big day yesterday). This story is writing itself so it might be released first. If I hit a road bump with the plot I might swing back to Frozen Huntress, if I’m still not happy with that plot I’ll put some chapters down on Book#5 in the Healers series.
This is basically my process of productivity. It means I spend more time in the writing phase and less time agonising over plot which has happened to me in the past.
Take care all.
*** Update: 28th of May.
The first draft of Savage is now half-finished.
11 chapters written. My goal is to have the first draft finished by the end of next week. These are just the bare bones, the revision time takes longer.
I’ll update once it’s completed.
