So yay! I finally finished my edits of my third book Timeless. Upon thinking about it, I don’t really like the title, but I’m gonna keep it. If you’ve been keeping up with my books, there’s a pattern in the book titles, and that pattern continues until the final book.
And this is the part where I reflect on what it took to get here. Honestly, it took a long time. Too much time. I wanted to have my third book out by the end of this month, and it looks like it’s gonna be June at the earliest. However, I’m done with the rewrites, and any further editing is just going to be the basic stuff. And the problems I solved in my third book directly relate to the fourth, so once I rewrite that one, it should be ready for my betas. Hopefully this will speed up editing on my last book and I can still get it out in a fairly reasonable amount of time.
I also learned that this is just how I write, and sometimes, especially for writing, you just have to take a little extra time to make sure it’s awesome. You can rush art. But at this stage, why not take a little extra time?
And with the completion of Timeless, I have the opportunity to finally work on my Urban Fantasy. Tentative title is No One’s Angel, and the series should have at least three books. Maybe four. We’ll see. And I’m really excited to work on it. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy working on the Godspeed series, but after spending the better part of a year with Sharon and her pals, a shift in tone serves me quite well. And yea, it does get tiring writing in such a heavy tone, even with the little beams of light Sharon experiences. The tone of this next series is a lot more…driven while being a little lighter. Ethan is already an awesome spellcaster. He just has to become Sage to unlock the secrets of a powerful magic that will let him look back in time and finally know how his parents died.
So yea. Guess that’s it for this round. It’s cool thinking I’m gonna have a third book out. And even more cool to think that, by the end of the year, I could be on my second series. I have a lot more stories to tell, so we should probably get started.
