Alright, I thought it was time for me to put out a progress update. I use to do monthly updates but somewhere along the way I got so busy that I stopped. Anyway, I missed being able to share my progress and the current projects that I'm working on. So, here's a list of projects I'm currently working on, planning, and a rough timeline of when I'd like to get these projects done.
Blood, Book 2 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series
First, I'd like to share my progress with Blood, Book 2 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series. So far I am slowly getting back on schedule. I'm really hoping to get the first draft done by August 1st. If that happens I could plan a release as soon as mid August, which is what I'm aiming for. I'm really excited for the future of this story and where it's going. I'm also planning on a novella for James once book 2 is finished. That's still up in the air though. I have so many other projects that need my attention. I know fans of this series would like me to focus on only it but that's not possible. I will place it at the top of my list but I have other series that need my attention too. There are some that need finished and others that need second books written. Like I've said countless times before there's just not enough time in the day to write.
Sacrifice, Book 3 in The Angels Evermore Series
Once Blood is done my next project will be finishing up a series that I started way back when I started publishing. I will be editing and then hopefully publishing the final book in The Angels Evermore series. I'll tell you now that it might not be what everyone who has read that series expects but it wraps the series up. To be completely honest that has been the hardest series for me to have written. Nothing was easy. The entire process was a struggle which is why I'm ending it. I'd rather end it than leave it unfinished. That's my goal for all of my series actually. I may take awhile to get it out but none of my series will ever just end without some sort of closure. That's a vow I take to heart. I've read so many stories that end with book two and then never carry on. I fully understand how frustrating that can be when you fall in love with a series. Anyway, I would like to release this story around then end of August. It's all written but needs some major editing so I want to give myself more than enough time to do what needs to be done so I'm comfortable with the final draft. (I'll be sharing a cover reveal within the next few weeks for this book.)
The Rebels, Book 2 in The Chosen Series
Next on my list will be the second book in The Chosen Series. I loved this story the second I wrote it and I've found myself longing to get back to it. I love my sci-fi stories. One of my favorite things is to create new worlds. I have a feeling that I'll go from writing book 2 straight into writing book 3. That would be ideal but we'll see when the time comes. I would really like to get book 2 finished and released before the end of the year. I'll aim for a October release. Of course if possible I'd love to release it sooner.
Brave, Book 4 in The Onyx Wolves Series
After all of that, I'd like to get back to The Onyx Wolves Series. So far, I have a third of the forth book finished so it should be an easy project to continue with. Again, if I get on a role with writing this series I'll continue on with book five, which will possibly be the end to that series. I would love to have a November of December release for this series. Of course if it gets finished sooner I'd be glad.
Book 2 in The Winter Fae Series
This is another series that I need to work on but it's getting pushed back since I just released the first book only a few months ago. There's still a lot of planning that needs to be done but the second I get a chance this will get written. More than likely this book won't be released until the spring of 2018.
Last but not least, I have been planning, on the side, another Reverse Harem series. I'm not going to say much about the story right now but I'm getting excited about it. This is exciting for those of you who have become fans of The Vampires of Linbridge. I can't wait to share details about this series once I'm able to.
So, there it is, my list of to do's. As you can see I've got my plate full but I'm confident that I'll get these projects done and released soon. It may take some long sleepless nights in order to get them written but I'll do whatever it takes.
