Writing Forward

Time Captives is complete! Time Captives is complete! My long hard labor of nearly four years is open to the public....

Now what?

When Kendra suggested I talk about my future writing plans (you can thank her for half the post topics on my blog this week), I realized I tend to forget to tell you what I'm planning next. While I was still working on Time Captives, it wasn't such a big deal, but now it's complete...what happens next?

First off, Time Captives related news. Well, I can't promise spin off novels any time soon. They're all suffering from a terrible disease known as Lack of Plot. However, I am exploring the possibility of creating a Time Captives-related...product. I don't want to officially announce it before I'm sure if I can pull it off, but I think I can. If I can do it, it should appear within the next year. I'll tell you more once I get farther along.

Now, as for what I'm publishing next, that'll be Twisted Dreams, currently planned for July 2017. As you probably already know, it's the Sleeping Beauty retelling I wrote for the Five Magic Spindles contest last year. The premise? What if, when Sleeping Beauty fell asleep, she woke up in another world? I'll be telling you a lot more about it in the months to come, but for now, you can explore my Pinterest board for the story.

Unfortunately, that's the only publication I have planned for next year. I've discovered that two releases a year is just too much work, too stressful, and doesn't leave nearly enough time for writing. And I need some time for writing.

Sometime between now and January, I plan to start another (hopefully last) major overhaul of the Cassie story, my outer space dystopian. I have a lot of plot holes to fix, and I have to replot the rest of the trilogy. My expected publication for that book is summer/fall 2018 (and maybe some deleted chapters as an ebook prequel shortly before that), and I hope to be able to release the second book a year later, the third the year after that. No promises on following books; there's also a possibility I may push back the rest of the trilogy in favor of an Espionage sequel. 

So basically, I'm slowing down my publishing schedule to allow more writing time, but I will be giving you something every year. Enjoy the finale of Time Captives, and look forward to some cool sci-fi to come!
