‘What’s the matter, Bill? We did good, didn’t we?’
Hey there, Strangers! Well howdy-doodly-doo, looks like I just finished the latest draft of Apocalypse Book 1…!
*does a little dance, gets down tonight*
I wanted part one to be forty-five thousand words, and somehow it came out at exactly that. That seems to happen A LOT when I give something an arbitrary word goal to work towards.
So yeah, first hybrid draft done. First draft halfway between the original story and the fresh take. Now I can have that sit for a week, before diving in and really making it into something.
In the meantime, I guess I should start shaking Part 2 around, and working out exactly how this whole thing is going to play out in Part 3…
Tales From Between
I just had the third Tale From Between book back from my editor, which means it’s almost ready to unleash upon an indifferent world. It’ll probably be out there to buy in around two weeks time.
This might, might, be it for the series. Let’s wait and see. It’s not as though they’re flying off the digital shelves, so how enjoyable they are to write aside, there’s no pressing reason to add further tales to the line. Now, that could change of course. Now the third one is ready, I’m going to really up the promotion for the series. Really look for new ways to show it off, for new places to throw it at. I think the books are pretty good, they’re fun, and they deserve a chance to be seen.
Who knows what form this promotion will take, but I’m going to try to do my best for the series, and see if that, coupled with a third release, will really bring the Tales From Between series to life. If it does look like it’s working, then there’s no reason for me not to revisit every now and again and put out more tales in the series. One reviewer likened it to a modern-day Goosebumps, and it would be awesome to see that become a reality. To see an audience really take to Between so I (and perhaps others, even) can carry on adding more spooky goodness into the series.
Anyway, we’ll see. I’ll let you all know (repeatedly) when this third book in the series is available. If you’ve read Monstrous, this one may or may not see a familiar face or two return.
Alright, that’s it for now, Nerds!
