What am I working on right now? October 2019

Updated: Nov 3, 2019

I've decided to attempt a monthly post about what I am currently working on. This is a way for my readers' to get an idea how my progress is coming on books and what they can expect from me, as well as a way hold myself accountable for my work.


As of this first blog post, here's where I stand on my way to self-publishing:


I have four king main series I am working on: Coal Ivy, Azrian Conquest, Sparrow Bank Academy, and my new unnamed work in progress series


Coal Ivy (Temprorary WIP Title):

Epic Fantasy Romance Trilogy

In a world full of Gifts, a coal miner and his companions make a discovery that throws everything they know about Magical Gifts on it's head. No longer will the Upper class be able to suppress the impoverished in their Kingdom. Ivy, A young serving girl, and her companions work to overthrow the ruling class, but will Ivy continue to help her knew friends when she falls for a Noble Man, and what will happen in the ensuing chaos of a world turned on it's head?

Progress:

Book 1- First Draft 2/3 complete

Book 2- Outlined

Book 3- Conceptualized and (Rough) outlined

Status: This is currently my favorite project I'm working on, but due to the upcoming NaNoWrimMo Series, and wanting to stick to the nature of NaNoWriMo and beginning an fresh piece, the series is on hold until at least December.


Azrian Conquest:

Epic Fantasy Trilogy

As Azria invades the Kingdom of Korwell, a group of young heroes learns it is about more than just kingdoms fighting for control of land. It is about the crossing of the Natural world and the Fey world, and the heroes are the only ones who can stop the dark Fey from destroying the world as they know it.

Progress:

Book 1- First Draft and Some editing complete

Book 2- Outlined

Book 3- Conceptualized and rough outlined.

Status: This was the very first book I started to write. In the editing process I realized it has many flaws that need to be worked out to make it remotely publishable. It is currently on the back burner until my new works are finished and then it will be possibly reimagined.


Sparrow Bank Academy:

YA Sci/Fi Super Hero Series

Sparrow Bank Academy is a high school for super heroes. There is a plan for at least a trilogy of books here, possibly more.

Progress:

Book 1- First Draft and some editing complete

Books 2 and 3 Conceptualized with (very) rough outlines.

Status: This series is on a current hiatus until at least the draft of the new series is complete.


Unnamed SteamPunk Alaskan Gold Rush Story

YA Steampunk Stand Alone or start to a series...

Think: Wild West meets Steam Punk meets Hunger Games meets Set in an alternate history where Dawson City in the Klondike became mystically isolated from the rest of North America right before the Gold Rush ended. How has this society changed over time? Lilian, The daughter of a prostitute in steampunk gold rush Alaska enters a competition to become a performer and discovers a nefarious government plot to keep the Yukon separated from the rest of the continent.

Progress:

Currently Outlining and researching.

Status: This is planned to by my NaNoWriMo novel for 2019. So Drafting begins November 1st! Join my Members Only Group to follow along as I work throughout November, and be the first to know how this story turns out.
