It’s the middle of January and things are ‘getting’ there.
We ended the year on a high-note, hitting 1,000,000 + pages read on Kindle. With any luck, we can do that same number in 2022.
Right now, we’re punching the keys on 2 projects.
Terminal Frontier is the 8th book of 9 in the Earth Saga series at this rate will be the longest installation by far. We’re going to have some exotic destinations visited, and a few gun-fights. Without giving more of the plot away, I’d have to say that this novel is very much critical in setting up the end of the series.
The second project we’re writing at the moment is Cryne: In the Wrong Dimension. This is a standalone novel, and while I’m not expecting it to be overly long, I do expect it to have a healthy amount of action with at least one decapitation.
At the same time those two projects are getting words added, we’re busy getting Standish 2.0 ready to send to my editor in Febtober, while The Rescue is also getting ready to head to the editor in May. This is also a standalone project and will also have its fair share of action.
Another big one that I’m working on is getting paperback books onto Amazon. I’ve found myself some software to make this happen, but this is always a slog, but getting that done is a priority for the first quarter of 2022.
It’s all hands-on deck for 2022. We’ve got 4 titles planned for release, so it’s basically a question of working seven days a week at this point. Write. Edit. Edit. Write. Figure out the book thing.
The rest of January is focused on getting cover art for Arpina & Fairlight sorted out, then getting that book published. Hopefully the readers will enjoy it. Hopefully.
Lots to do. With any luck, the Covid monster will be gone by spring/summer, and life will return to some semblance of normal.
All we can do is hope, and in the meantime, punch the keys!
On a viewing note, I watched the South Korean show ‘Silent Sea’, and while it wasn’t perfect, it had incredible production value and was one of the better sci-fi shows I’ve watched lately, because, frankly, there ain’t much out there (I’m looking at you Book of Boba Fett).
Until next time, stay safe out there.
