“The Outpost” has thrown me several curve balls this past year, which ultimately led to a major structural overhaul. I’m almost finished with the second draft now, then I’ll pull back a bit to participate in my tenth consecutive NaNoWriMo. When I dive back into “The Outpost” in December, I’ll be writing all-new chapters for the beginning of draft three. This draft will be read as written by my CP, Shannon, and with any luck I’ll finish before the spring. It’s taking a lot of time, but it will be worth it!

It’s been an interesting year. Ashes Swept is continuing to do well and has been reviewed on various blogs and in digital magazines. In July I was interviewed at The Educated Writer blog, and last month I wrote a post for the Alliance of Independent Authors self-publishing advice blog. I’m still plugging away on my next book, working title “The Outpost,” which I hope to release sometime this year. I’m still tinkering with the possible reference book.

I took a short break from my WIP in December, and now I’m working on finishing up the story, refining the plot, and fleshing out the story’s world. I’m also thinking about putting together a reference book, but that’s on the back-burner for now. I definitely think my idea could add to the amazing reference books already out there–so we’ll see what happens!

It’s been eleven weeks since the launch of Ashes Swept, and I couldn’t be happier with the response. So many lovely reviews have come in, and people are already asking about my next release. While I had originally planned to revise a novel I wrote in 2009, I liked this year’s NaNoWriMo novel so much, I’ve decided to publish that next instead. I’m still aiming for the second half of 2018 for release.
