Writing Update April 20, 2018

Those of you who follow me on Facebook will already know that I recently finished the first draft of Keltin Moore’s third novel. I’m very excited for this one, as it explores some characters that haven’t gotten much attention in the past, as well as introducing a much larger cast to the series. Right now I’m in the midst of the initial review before the actual work of the second draft begins. So far, it looks pretty straightforward, though I anticipate that the majority of the work will be in the first five chapters when I was still struggling to figure out what the plot was going to be.

In order to meet my ambitious release date for this novel, I’m temporarily putting all other projects on hold. This includes the new anthology I’d been planning on releasing some time this year. Instead, my plan is to release those stories in 2019. Whether it will be an updated version of Magic, Mystery and Mirth or a completely new title is yet to be determined, but I will say this… If I do end up combining all of the planned short stories with the existing ones in Magic, Mystery and Mirth, it will more than double the size of that collection!

There is one more project that I’m thinking about which many of you have been asking about for some time. Yes, I do plan to do an audio-book version of The Beast Hunter some time in the future. Ideally, I’d like to narrate it myself, but putting all the pieces together is going to take some doing. Right now, I’m working to find a sound-proofed recording space as well as getting the funds necessary to purchase the required hardware and software to ensure that this project is of the highest quality. If you have any resources you know of or are willing to contribute to this cause, please let me know! You can also contribute to my Patreon account to help me save up enough money to make this dream a reality.

I hope you’re as excited about these developments as I am. I can’t wait for all of my fans to return to the world of Keltin Moore!
