Hello all! I hope each of you is having as wonderful of an August as I am. I am happy to announce that not only have sales and downloads of the Chariots of Heaven saga been doing well but my weekly writing output has increased dramatically. What many of you might be slightly disappointed to hear, however, is that despite writing nearly a 1,000 words a day this writing has not been on the Chariot of Heaven saga. (Have no fear, the third book is being worked on and will be written in due course)
In fact, my sudden inspiration and drive to write has manifested in the form of a Serial novel I’m going to be releasing in the coming months on Kindle and iBooks/iTunes (*Note* I’m officially updating my plan from the previous novella idea to that of a running serial novel). As of right now that novel has over 17,000 words written on it and the first “episode” is already in the editing stages. The current plan for this serialized novel is going to go a bit like this:
I am going to prepare the first four “episodes” of the novel over the coming weeks with the hopes of having them edited and ready to publish before the fall reading buzz wears off. Once those four parts are ready (each one will be about 15,000 words a piece, or around 50 pages) I will begin publishing them every couple weeks while I continue to write the remaining episodes. The first episode will be FREE for anyone to download and each successive part after that (likely to be about 10 parts, possibly more) will be listed at $0.99. Once the story is complete and the last part is published, my wife and I will work on combining all the parts into an omnibus that can be purchased either as an eBook or as a print book for those who don’t wish to partake in the serial/episodic unfolding.
The story has a title, but for fear of someone snatching it up, I’m going to simply refer to this novel as “The Scourge Project” for the time being. The project itself is a fantasy/horror set on Earth around our current time (perhaps a bit in the future) and the blurb for it will look something like this:
“Awaking from a deep slumber, the peculiar Sophie finds herself to be the only hope of stopping a terrifying darkness that’s quickly consuming the population and turning the Earth’s inhabitants into the undead. Plagued by the loss of her memory, she must work with a mysterious group called the Red Diocese to remember who she is and where she comes from because within that knowledge may lie the key to overcoming the rising tide of evil.”
The blurb will likely change some (it needs improvement, for sure) and will have greater detail as more of the story unfolds during my writing sessions. I sincerely hope all of my readers will at least check out the first episode once it is published (since it will be free) and will find the story compelling enough to read it as it unfolds.
