Progress on Wandering Stars

Looking at the date of my last post, I realize how quickly time can move.

Rather than writing blog posts, I’ve been busy working on my next writing project—a prequel series to The Awakened, entitled Wandering Stars. Hopefully you understand how I choose to prioritize my time. When I started this blog, I knew I wouldn’t be able to write daily or even weekly. The goal was to write something interesting to readers—background information on characters, progress on various writing projects, behind the scenes info. Stuff like that.

Lately, I’ve been able to adjust my day-job work-schedule to free up some writing time during the week. And I’m happy to report this time has been extremely productive. For those of you who’ve been keeping up with me on Facebook, you know that I’m 77% done with my first draft of Volume One, provisionally entitled Incarnation of the Myndarym (I reserve the right to change my mind if needed). This is quite an accomplishment, considering how long it took me to write The Awakened. My goal is to have the new book out by Christmas. With rewrites, editing, graphic art, and the publishing process, I’m not sure I can achieve this goal. But I’m trying anyway.

So, I didn’t want you to think I’ve dropped off the face of the earth.

I’m writing.  A lot.  Just not blogging.

Your writing skill are absolutely amazing. These books have reminded me of the ERAGON series I have grown quite fond of. As you know you have left many questions hanging in the balance in the conclusion of book 3. I bought book 2 and book 3 after I read book one on kindle for free. I purchased book 2 and book 3 2 days ago and I have already finished both. A good book is hard to put down and in your case I couldn't even do it. With college baseball and college classes this has been quite a challenge. I wish you all the success in the world with your story line and hopefully one day you concentrate solely on writing. I would love to hear some feed back from you

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed the books. I know there are many loose ends, but hopefully you'll read my future stories and enjoy the process of watching me resolve all those questions.

azdug,

Volume One of Wandering Stars should be available by February, as long as I don't run into delays. Thanks so much for your support!
