It’s been about a month since I updated the blog. It hasn’t been
And it’s not like I hadn’t been online. I sneak onto Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and read up on what everyone’s up to, but most of the time, I’m not commenting or otherwise engaging. I suppose that’s the wrong thing for a person who generally markets by social media to do. But there are just some times when I’m good with seeing what people are doing, but I really don’t want to interact. I’m happy keeping up with folks. I don’t know if that makes sense or not. It made sense in my head.
So I’ve been working on this urban fantasy story for Patreon for a while, and I’m really loving this return to what I used to write a long time ago. I mean, romance has always been a thing in my stories, but writing in a contemporary setting was kind of a new thing when I started publishing. So, I’ve really been enjoying creating this whole new world that’s filled with magic and all these new characters where magic is a normal, everyday thing for them.
Also, I started brainstorming Reapers #3 this week. I still haven’t nailed down which couple I’m going to be focusing on for this book. There’s obviously some unfinished business from the first two books I need to work on. I think this will be the first book that I actually plot out on purpose. But there are some side stories going on, and other threads that need to converge in this book, so what I’ve been mainly trying to think about is which couple would further the story more. It’s gotten a little complicated. LOL.
I originally planned five books, so I suppose this book is considered the midpoint of the series, which means all the things are starting to come together, we’re figuring things out, but there’s still a lot that we don’t know. The funny thing is that I mostly pantsed the first book, so I really had no clue where that story was going to go after that book. The only real thing I knew was that Chris and Abigail’s story wasn’t over with book 1. We only saw a little bit of them in HER LAST KILL, but I needed to set the foundation first. Don’t worry, guys… There’s definitely going to be more of the two in book 3.
Now I’m trying to tie the series arc into the vision that I had for the series when I wrote that book, which means I kind of
So I guess that’s everything I’ve been up to, writing-wise. I’ve been working on revamping my Patreon page, to streamline it and make it more fun for folks. I haven’t been very good about things there but I want to change that. So over the next few weeks, I’m going to be focusing more there and probably starting to post the urban fantasy story up there. It’s going to be slow, probably once or twice a month at first but it’ll build as the membership builds. I’d really love some ideas for rewards that aren’t incredibly time intensive and don’t involve me going to the post office more than once a month, because I suck at going to the post office. In fact, I haven’t checked my PO Box in like, two months. Yeah.
So anyway, that’s what I got. This week, I have to talk to my school advisor to figure out what classes I need for the fall, register for said classes, and try to figure out how I’m going to balance it all. The good thing is that I managed to be able to cut back on my hours at work because I was making enough from recent book sales and Patreon, and that’s awesome. Y’all are everything to me right now so thank you so much for your support and the awesome. Because of y’all, I get to keep writing, and I get to work less than 50 hours a week at the Sucky Day Job, and I still get time to binge watch anime and relax.
I hope you guys have an amazing week. I promise it will not be another month before I update the blog again. <3
