The State of The Series…es.
Okay “series” is technically a plural, so it really is like “both series,” but doesn’t that sound weird?
I’ve been writing diligently. More or less diligently, anyway. As usual, I have no release dates to give, because I don’t want to be a liar who brings false hope. Sorry about that.
Tanner’s next novel is about halfway done. I’m closing in on 80,000 words on the rough draft. It feels like I’m about halfway, and I know the climax arc I want. Right now my biggest problem with the book itself is in deciding how to space out each “act,” as it were. This one involves a lot of world-building and new horizons for the setting and for Tanner, so that slows it up a bit, too…but I’m looking forward to putting it out.
The biggest problem with writing, however, is 2017. I won’t go into it. You can see how I feel in many of my other posts. But the whole raging national garbage fire is a serious distraction, and it makes writing difficult. Not gonna lie. You can find plenty of other authors with the same problem.
On that note, last week I shifted over a bit to the next Good Intentions ’cause I felt like it was time for a break from space and also time for a little Nazi-punching goodness. I’m only doing a couple of chapters before switching back to Tanner…I think. The honest truth is I’m gonna keep writing whatever keeps me writing, and I’ll put out whichever one gets done first. I’m hoping it’s Tanner. He’s due. But if Alex, Lorelei, and Rachel start taking off, so be it.
Also, recording has finished on “No Medals for Secrets.” I don’t have a release date, but I’ve spoken with Tess Irondale a few times about it so I know she’s done with her part. The rest is in Audible’s hands now.
