It’s been a couple of months since my last update, so here’s the latest on my current works-in-progress.
First though, a general update. Some of you may remember that earlier this year I announced that due to some significant life-changes I’d have to reevaluate my priorities in how I make a living and provide for my family. Luckily, since then I’ve had some new opportunities open up, the biggest one being my ongoing creative writing classes at South Puget Sound Community College. This steady work has allowed me to keep my family my first priority while still leaving time and energy for my writing career.
Speaking of my writing, here’s some specific updates:
The Next Keltin Moore Novel
After many false starts, this first-draft is finally in the groove. The instigating event is locked-in, and Keltin is firmly on his way to his next adventure. I’m also beginning the groundwork for establishing some new characters, as well as figuring out how to tie-in subplots from the first and second books. I have a feeling like this is going to be a good one for both new readers and fans of the Beast Hunter from Riltvin.
My Next Short Story Collection
I currently have four short stories for this collection, and half a dozen potential other pieces to add. Unfortunately, I’m not having any success with short fiction right now, so I’m taking a break from this project for now. Hopefully I’ll still be able to finish this one for 2018.
My Secret Project
I’m making very good headway on this project which has been in the works for more than a decade. This is definitely a passion-project, so I don’t mind taking the time to make sure it’s exactly what I want it to be.
