Book Two Progress

Friends,

Today’s blog is strictly informational. 

Much progress has been made in the past week with regards to UNGUARDED, Book Two in the “Faces of the War” collection. I finished working this past Friday by sending just over 13K words to my editor. This week will mark the beginning of work on the second 1/3 of the book!

As the schedule currently stands, I am well within my goal of releasing the book just after the New Year. Also on the schedule is the first volume of my short story collection, due to release this autumn. More details will come down the pipe as I get closer to finishing it. I also have other projects lined up, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves!

If you’d like to stay up-to-date on everything I’m working on, please click that little “Follow” button and join me on my literary journey. I’d love to have you along for the ride! And please, tell a friend about me or my debut book, RESISTANT, available in ebook and print form. Any help in spreading the word is appreciated!

Until next time,

-Eli

Thoughts

Friends,

While I await the third and final portion of my book to be sent from a friend who’s helping me edit the story, I would like to take a moment to think out loud.

I have really tried to be mindful of so much while writing this first book. I want to make sure I do a good job all around, with anything from writing to publishing to marketing. Not only do I enjoy writing, which is one reason I do it, but I also hope that YOU can enjoy what I write as well. My hope is that I can deliver a good story to an eager audience, and continue to do so for as long as I can.

As I write, I think about ways to better myself and my writing through my experience. I would love to hear suggestions from you, my readership, on things you like and dislike in my stories, so I can better tailor them to you. Obviously, I can’t write everything specifically how each person would like, but I would like to find a happy medium. So please, once I get my books up and going–especially this first one–communicate with me your thoughts on the stories.

I am already thinking up ideas for future books, and I only hope that I can do a good enough job in the beginning to keep working later on. That’s where my readership comes in: my audience can help me become better and want to continue to work. Please tell your friends, family, and anyone else you’d like about me and my writing.

-Eli
