So this month I was working on edits for the third book in my fantasy series (The Emerald Dragon) and the first book in my space opera trilogy (The Warrior Wench). Like I said last week, I just rolled from edits on one to edits of the other.
I just sent The Warrior Wench out to beta readers. Tonight I’ll be starting on the final rounds for The Emerald Dragon and hope to have it ready by end of month.
But right now I’m looking out over the edge of a great abyss. Soon, very very soon, I need to start drafting book four in the fantasy series (The Sapphire Manticore- cover coming soon!) and The Victorious Dead- the second book in the space opera-aka The Asarlaí Wars Trilogy.
I have two massive worlds of my own making before me, and I can go wherever I want.
It is a pretty damn cool feeling, lemme tell you.
Is it scary?—hell yes! I’m always terrified that I won’t figure out where in the heck I’m going. But starting a brand new book? For me that is probably one of the greatest feelings around. And in the next six months I get to do two of them :).
So today I’m waving at you from the edge of madness and creativity, wondering if perhaps I’ve taken a step too far, but excited about it nonetheless.
Find something scary and fun to do everyday.
