Welcome to a new week, a new month, a new chapter. Well, new chapter for me, at least. Now that Unguarded has released and some time has passed for my mind to reset, it is on to the next project. So let’s dive in…
To begin, I’d like to share a link to another blog for which I wrote a guest post just last week. The blog, entitled English Historical Fiction Authors, is operated by fellow historical fiction author Debra Brown and showcases articles, authors, and books in the realm of British history. I wrote an article on the Battle of Britain as my guest blog post, which played well into the promotion for Unguarded. It isn’t as long as some articles on the website, but I wrote what I felt was necessary to talk about what was on my mind. It was a fun experience, and I’m grateful to Debra for giving me the chance to guest blog and for the added exposure to my work. If you haven’t seen it yet, I encourage you to give it a look!
As for the next project, it technically has already begun. In between working days during the final phase of Unguarded, I started into the preliminary writing of the next book in my World War II collection. In this book, there will be a Prologue and an Epilogue (the first book in the collection to have both). At this point, I have just over 4K words written, which leaves me around 43K left to type if this book will be similar in length to its predecessor. And I had already had the book planned in skeleton form since before October 2014. I am very much looking forward to working through this project. And I hope that you will continue to follow along and support me in my passion!
With regard to the next short story volume, not as much has developed as I would have liked. I am still hoping to release Volume 2 sometime between March and May, but I will have to see how it all goes. I will keep you posted as I go.
There are also some things happening behind the scenes, but I don’t want to give it away just yet. But if all goes as planned, they are pretty big. It is my hope that the year ahead will be filled with great things!
Until next time,
