For the last two years, I’ve used NaNoWriMo to help me with the first two drafts of The Fading Glow, the sequel to The Lantern-Lit City. Now that The Fading Glow has been reviewed by beta readers (and is in the final revisions stage), it’s time to start Book 3: The Enduring Flame. The final book in the series, it will finish up the story I first dreamt up 10 years ago.
This year, I’m also working on some short stories. I have a story, “The Pack,” which will be a part of an anthology called First Encounters, coming out soon. A sequel anthology, Second Law, will be coming out next year, so I’ve been developing some ideas for that. A couple of other anthologies that I’m interested in have put out calls for stories, and I may spend some NaNoWriMo words on first drafts for those as well.
It’s been a busy year, and I hope to write more and publish more in the next one. I have so many ideas cluttering up my brain, and some of them may even be worth something!
Happy Halloween, and remember to vote!
