BOOKS

I'm currently working on an untitled Gamelit/LitRPG Lite novel series. The working title is Aether Shard. I plan to release novels 1 - 3 of this series sometime in 2021.

Here's the blurb:

When Terry gets accepted into a high-profile competition for a new virtual reality fantasy game, he has no idea why he was picked. He's just a nobody, barely living above Basic, who plays old school RPG's in his free time. He's certainly no famous Active VR athele like most of the other contestants. But when strange and deadly events begin happening in the real world, Terry starts to suspect the game is somehow responsible. And he might be the only person who can help.

WHAT I'M WORKING ON RIGHT NOW

I'll update this section every so often so you'll know what I'm currently working on.

December 31, 2020

I'm finished with the second revision of my first novel, Aether shard! It's been a long journey writing this novel. All of 2020, I've worked on it in one form or another. 

But, I've learned a lot. And hopefully my future novels won't take as long.

For example, I learned a lot about managing my time for a deadline. At the end, I spent about 4 days straight revising and writing new scenes to meet my goals. Probably close to 10 hours a day on average. It was brutal. But also fun and exciting. Still, I'd have preferred to have done that work in smaller chunks beforehand. Oh well, lesson learned.

So, next steps... I will take the feedback I received from this revision and work those changes into the novel. After that, it's time for a developmental editor. Not quite sure how I'm going to pay for that yet. And while that's happening, I'll begin plotting out my second novel in the series. I'll likely start on the first draft of that sometime in the first quarter of 2021.

That's it for the update. Hope you had a happy holidays. Happy New Year and to everyone, an incredible 2021!
