On this inaugural post, I thought I’d take the time to give a summary of some of my current projects.
I’m about three-fourths done with the third novel of what is planned to be a six book series. I’ve already written the first two. The books so far are:
The series is an urban fantasy based on Christian mythology. My elevator pitch is as follows:
- Angels and demons stalk the earth, humanity’s protectors have fallen, and the End of everything is coming. Five nobodies turned unlikely heroes take the fight to the top: gunning for God himself.
The books mostly action/adventure. I like fast-paced stories with plenty of action and knock-down-drag-out-fights between good and evil. I also wanted to make a speculative fiction story with a diverse cast, in gender, races, sexual orientation, and and ability. Not that I’m much for fiction that exists just to tick diversity boxes. I like my books to be led by story, not politics.
In addition to writing Perdition, I’m in the middle of another edit on Blasphemer to get it nice and polished for another round of querying.
Recently, though, I’ve been putting more of a focus on building up a library of short fiction and submitting what I have to various markets. No luck with publication yet, but I haven’t been at it long, and I have a lot no shortage of ideas. Currently, I’ve only been working on science fiction and fantasy stories. I hope someday to experiment with other genres (probably not literary, though), but speculative fiction is what I’m naturally drawn to.
With the new semester coming up, I’ll have to balance writing with school and, hopefully, a day job. I’ll keep you posted on how I manage.
