Fruit of the Dead is a series I started back in 2018 and legitimately went numb on until recently. Yes, I should have a publishing schedule but I honestly had no clue where to go next at the time. But, I’ve been doing a lot of brainstorming and prompt mining and my general output has been increasing. So, the second episode is in the absolute last stage of editing and will be up later this week!
Yes, I’ve been quiet lately but it’s for a good reason! I stopped doing reviews for a bit so I could work on this story and it’s all ready! Djinn 2: Wendigo is the sequel to Djinn, and has the same main two characters but a new enemy! It will be released on March 4, 2021.
I also have a rough draft of the next part of Fruit of the Dead that I’m working on and I hope to have that out before the end of March. I won’t leave the blog idle; I have a bunch of reviews ready to type up.
I have been working on more stories and while I had to put my longer-form stuff aside for a bit, I have been working on some shorter material! And what I’ll be publishing next is part two of Fruit of the Dead! It’s been a while and I needed to get back to working on this series and get some more parts in before I start outlining the next Go Away Girls book.
Yeah, I’m outlining now. I’m usually a pantser, but this is helping me get to my goal of publishing more often. And if I’m able to write faster, I’ll have time to read more and finally get my Kindle to stop showing that error message…
I have more reviews to post but I’ll keep everyone updated on the new releases and my progress!
The next book in the Go Away Girls series is done and ready for purchase! This is a steampunk story about a new drug loose in the city sold by dealers willing to kill to keep their business going. This time there isn’t any sex in it so it’s available on more platforms but I hope you all still enjoy it.
I hope I didn’t worry anyone by not posting after my last update but I wanted to say something good in all the mess that’s going on. While I’ve been adjusting to working from home, I finished a rough draft of the next Go Away Girls book; “Flight.”
I’m working on editing it in between working from home and writing up more reviews so I don’t have an official release date. If you’re interested in this universe, check out the first book “The Mirror.”
As for a more personal update, we’re all still home, going out as little as possible, and blessedly still healthy. I am technically still employed but no longer getting the overtime I depend on to pay the mortgage. I count my blessings because there are people out there in way worse positions, but I will ask my readers to share and review my books and please, stay safe, stay clean, and stay home.
Last year I did pretty well on my yearly goals but this year I’m gonna scale it down a bit. I don’t want to get overwhelmed:
- Draw more. I actually really miss this.
- Treat my writing and blog more like a business. I’d like to be publishing more often.
- Clean off my Kindle, Nook, iPad, AND read the ARCs I have piled up.
- More needlework.
That’s about it! I’ve gotten a pretty good running habit, my doctor says I’m very healthy so, my main goals now are the success of my writing and clearing out. Let’s see how this year goes!
As you can see by the flood of posts recently, I am making a real effort to not only post every day but clear off my Kindle and clear out the books piled up in my room. This means expect a ton of reviews of stuff that’s all over the map.
This doesn’t mean I’m not writing. I haven’t been meeting my 5 page a day goals mainly because I haven’t outlined Emma’s book at all and I’m just sorta flowing with it. This means some days I write 4-5 pages and some days I write 4-5 words.
Unfortunately, this means I have no idea when my next book will come out. But I will be more forthcoming with updates in the future.
Over the last few months, I’ve been slowly working on Emma’s book in the First Brood series and working on the next episode of Fruit of the Dead. I’m a little annoyed with how slow it’s going but progress is being made.
The main reason why things are slow going is I have been working very hard on catching up with all the ARC books I have around. So, expect more reviews this month as I try to clear off my ereaders and get rid of all those books I got from BookExpo and Book Con. I’m starting to trip over those and that’s not good at all.
