Ain’t it Dead Yet?
It’s been a while since I posted a formal update to this site. To be honest, there hasn’t been a lot to post about. I decided it was time I finally post about what’s been going on with my writing.
Right now, I have two pieces finished. I’m not sure what I want to do with the first. Necroshine is ridiculously over the top in every way imaginable. There’s graphic material in it that I just don’t want to release. It needs a major slash and burn edit job, but I haven’t had the desire to tackle that job. Maybe someday. But right now, the first draft will remain untouched.
The second piece is a different matter.
Save minor editorial changes and adjustments, I have a 25K word monster on the rampage novella ready to roll. It’s bloody, violent and dark. Lots of crazy gore, graphic sex and over the top moments. I really like it, so it’ll be released… but I’m not sure when.
It’s been so long since Extreme Haunt, I don’t think releasing a random novella into the wild will do me any good. I want to follow this thing up with another title in short order. I’ve started working on a promising candidate. It’ll be somewhere around 10K words, should I manage to see it through. Nice, compact and easy to read. I hope to finish it before November.
I’ve decided I’ll take part in NaNoWriMo again, regardless of what happens with the novelette. In the past, I’ve completed four books as part of the challenge. Two have been released, two remain unreleased. That’s not a bad batting average. Presuming I complete the challenge, this one will be the tie-breaker.
My self-publishing journey isn’t over yet. I’d like to think I still have many more titles to release before I call it a day. It’s just taking a bit longer than I’d like. It ain’t dead, just merely sleeping… for now.
