As 2018 comes to a close, I am still awed that I signed with an amazing publisher, Ambassador International, for a total of 4 books (two in 2019 alone) and I'm working on more novels! I was able to be a part of several online writing-related events, met more authors than I ever have in my life...and this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. I feel like even more is going to change in 2019 and that's okay!
Most of all, I feel blessed -- to have the opportunity to do what I love; to have the support, love and friendship of so many; and to be so encouraged and inspired by my Lord.
My personal thanks to everyone who is on this journey with me!
I have to apologize for not posting for the last month. I've been busy with several projects, plus music and choir rehearsals for upcoming Christmas-related events. That said, I'd like to tell you a little about the projects I've been working on.
I've been actively working towards completing the third book in the JORDAN trilogy. That has been very rewarding and amazing. The first book in the series is still set for a Summer 2019 release and I'm very much looking forward to that.
I also started the first book in a Christian steampunk trilogy. It's an idea I had over the summer. I wanted to challenge myself and learn a genre I'd never written before. That also meant creating a new world (an alternate Earth, actually) with its own unique history. I had to ask myself what I could do to make this story uniquely my own, not just a shadow or imitation of someone else's steampunk. And I feel like I have succeeded. This world and its characters will blaze their own path.
And lastly, on a suggestion from my publisher Ambassador International, I wrote a near-7000 word short story and submitted it to a science fiction and fantasy magazine called Empyreome. That took two weeks, a lot of hard work and the support and editing expertise of my wife, Angel, but with the help of the Lord, we did it.
That's all for now. See you soon!
