Writing Update: Current Project and What’s Next

(Image Source)

Right after my newest release, I started work on the third and final part of my Dahlia series. Even with an outline, I floundered a bit with the introduction but things are moving along. I can’t give an estimated release date yet but I am having fun working on this series.

What I really want to do next is another installment of Go Away Girls. I already have an idea for it, I just need to outline it before I start it.

Right now, my sales are not in a place where I can take time to work on really long projects; like the next installment of my vampire series. I’m getting there VERY slowly but I’m keeping my projects short so I can publish more books more often. I have 18 total titles under my belt and I’m pushing for 30 or more before the end of the year. I am looking into bundling these shorter works together. I just need to figure out how I want the covers to look.

On the heels of Amazon playing games with me, I have a new release! The next part of the Dahlia trilogy is currently in pre-order and will be released on October 26th! You can support any of your preferred retailers by clicking here, and all my books will be available via my blog as I am in the process of building a store here. I’ll probably end up selling more than just my ebooks but we’ll see how much I can get done.

Lenni Reviews: “Burn the Witch” Vol. 1, by Tite Kubo

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

Set in the same universe as Bleach, dragons and magic are real in Reverse London and the agents of the Wing Bind are the only people able to fight them. Noel and Ninny are witches and Wing Bind agents who battle dragons in secret. But they risk being exposed when Noel’s classmate, Balgo, is targeted by a dragon.

This volume has just the right balance of fantasy, humor, magic, and intrigue. Our audience stand-in, Balgo, is just goofy enough without getting annoying (yet, we’ll see how it goes) and Ninny’s high energy works well with Noel’s deadpan nature. I see potential in this and I hope there’s much more. While I haven’t read Bleach, I am familiar with the series and I wonder if this series will take a similar path. 4 out of 5.

Lenni Reviews: “Mao” Vol 1, by Rumiko Takahashi

Nanako is a seemingly normal high school girl being raised by her grandparents after her parents died in a tragic accident. One day while she walking, she goes through a portal and finds herself in Taisho era Japan (the 1920’s) and is able see auras and demons. Here, she meets Mao, an exorcist on a mission to kill the demon that cursed him.

This is classic Takahashi and I love it. There’s great lore and tons of it, fun fantasy, intrigue, cool characters, and a mystery that will keep you coming back. I look forward to more after a strong start to this fantasy series. 4.9 out of 5.

Seven years have passed and Sibylla is captured by the Troll Queen, jeopardizing the prophesy she must fulfill

There’s some interesting palace intrigue going on here in this rich fantasy world. There’s a lot of lore to play around with and I didn’t expect a 7 year jump from the first volume. That’s an interesting choice since most stories are quick to get to the big prophesy part right away. This is an interesting twist giving room for a compelling cast of characters. I like the uniqueness. 4 out of 5.

Lenni Reviews: “The Girl from the Sea” by Molly Ostertag

Like most teenagers, Morgan dreams of leaving her small seaside town so she can be herself. After her parents divorce, her and her little brother are having trouble dealing with all the emotions, leading Morgan to take a walk near a cliff; only to be saved by an old and exceptional friend.

This was a sweet book with some great representation and a nice simple story. It’s perfect for it’s age group and had beautiful art. I would have liked to see more of it but the ending is satisfactory as it is and makes this all a light hearted read with great characters. 4.5 out of 5.

Lenni Reviews: “No. 5” Vol. 1, by Taiyo Matsumoto

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

Post apocalypse, humans created a race of super humans and called them The Peace Corps Commanders. One has gone rogue and needs to be hunted down.

Reading this is like trying to remember parts of different dreams you had the night before. I kept turning the pages thinking “I’m sure this will all come together and make sense soon” but I read this twice and all I can tell you is that there’s things that happened. I like the art butI don’t get it. I like to think I’m smart and can interpret well but this is just madness. 3 out of 5.
