Well, it seems like a hell of a long time since I last performed an update. I’ve been so busy actually doing the writing that I haven’t had time to update recently. There is a lot to update you all on with regards to the saga. So far I have committed in excess of 60,000 words. The only problem is that is for book 4.
Book 4 Progress
I had such a brainwaves on book 4 that I had to get it down. Work has also been quiet so I’ve been writing a lot during my working hours because I haven’t been challenged recently. Obviously, I do drop book writing time for getting the important things done but recently my soul concentration has been my book 4 shape. The 1st draft has come together so much quicker than Book 1’s did.
Characterisation in Book 4
I have quite a quirky group of individuals for this book and for Kyro (aka 515), there will be quite a few love interests to choose from. It is going to be an enjoyable time.
There are a number of natural breaks in Book 4, the book itself fits fairly neatly within 3 acts and has a suitable ending, a bit more upbeat than those planned in Books 2 and 3.
Returning to Book 1
I plan to stop writing the first draft shortly and return to work on Book 1. I feel I am getting close to an editor now and am happy about that realisation. Ideally I want to have the book finished by the end of the year if possible and then be actively promoting it whilst working on the next installment.
Where is Book 2?
Book 2 didn’t get all that much love. I had initially started something on Book 2 but feel that its overall arch might shift to fall more in line with what I’ve established further on.
Where is Book 3?
Book 3 is in a similar state to book 2. There is some rough framing but ultimately it will be a journey to fill out the concept further.
Onwards and updwards!
