Work, play, write

If I’ve learnt one thing writing my first book it’s that I’m chaotic when it comes to writing. In fact I’m chaotic when it comes to most things but my writing seems to suffer the most.

My plan going forward is to enforce some structure, driving up efficiency of my writing. What tips do any if you writers out there have for managing your writing time effectively when also working full time?

Hope to see some ideas in the comments! 😀

Release Time

So ATH Rebirth will hit shelves some time around March/April 2014. I had aimed for a launch this year but with my schedule blowing out of control with job changes etc I didn’t want to rush the book. Also in order to work with the editor I wanted to work with, Cynthia Shepp, things have had to wait a little longer.

This gives me a great opportunity to begin work on the next installments in the series so the books will all gel together so much more. I’ve written the plans and the entire structure for the series has now changed but at the same time it’s finalised. Five books in total for the story arc that follows Michael Nolan’s trials.

I’ve always said I won’t rush these books and that I’ll wait for quality and I feel that Cynthia is a choice worth waiting for. No point in rushing it at this last hurdle.

Thanks to everyone for your patience. It will be worth it in the end.

Beta Over

Well the first impressions from my beta readers are looking good. With the feedback Ive had it looks like I am finally on track to get this book into the final stages. One last read through required and the addition of a small amount of content and then its out of my hands and into an editors.

Now as I near the final stages theres a few tweaks I need to make to the plans for the next two books. Idea overload hitting some blank pieces of paper shortly.

Almost there

Well the complete book has now gone to my beta readers. There a few amendments I need to make but its almost ready to go off to an editor. Very excited about the completed book nearing its existence.

Made a slight amendment to the ending but after another read through I felt it needed the tweak. Things are looking good and I’m aiming for a December launch!

Let’s see how this all plays out!
