There goes another decade, well nearly. Time flies when you’re writing books I guess and this year just sort of crept up from the shadows. The past few weeks have all kinda merged but things are trying to settle down…
Lets talk goals for 2019; because A new year feels like a fresh start, this is my year and it may even be the crowning piece of one hell of a decade.
- I’m handwriting the first draft for my next book, a paranormal romance in the form of a diary. Yes I said romance, my whole deal in writing is to nail as many genres as I possibly can. If you can tell a story, genres are just the variable. We’re looking at a festive season 2019 release and I may fully self publish this one, I will still need an epic cover though!
- Book Code named ‘Project X43’… or the real title ‘Jack Thorn’ – ‘In the future there will be robots… and this book is my writing destiny’. This year I’m finishing the rebooted draft and I’m going to find an agent and get it published (yep easier said than done). Those who have followed me from the start will recognize the ‘Thorn’ name and yes this book is massively linked to it.
- Darke Blood Sequel: ‘Darke Awakening’ has already been drafted and for those who have been keeping up this one serves as not only a sequel to ‘DB’ but it’s the continuation of Open Evening and Cemetery House. This year I will hopefully edit and set a release date for the Awakening. It will probably see the ‘light’ in 2020.
- The premiere of my first full length stage play! This month my Pantomime adaptation of Beauty and The Beast will premiere for the Iver Heath Drama Club. Limited tickets are still available and it is the first self written full length play in IHDC’s 76 year history.
- More stage plays. Okay technically I have already drafted my next on stage endeavour/adaptation which is slated for performance in 2020 if all goes well and it is approved.
- My back catalogue needs to get read! All of my books need way more reviews and eyes on them. If you want to read an e-copy in exchange for a review I shall send them your way, just get in contact!
- Keep on Blogging in the free world! You’ll be seeing a more consistent stream of content here in the Hall of Information after all this my 6th year so watch this space for book reviews, rambles and other wonderful things.
- Reach more bloggers and writers!
So that’s all of my writing goals for 2019, let me just take this opportunity to say, keep it real, be safe and may the force be with you!
