Personal Thoughts

Sequel

Surreal Enemies Book Release Party, 10/23/15

10/23/15 was my book release party, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I met a lot of great new people, both readers and authors alike, and have more books I’m interested in reading…which makes no sense because I have about 15 books on my to-be-read list as it is. But, one can never have too many books, right? Right!
 
You know, a day like a release day is one of those days that authors live for, and not just because it’s a party starring us. It’s because, as soon as we make notes for a book and start typing, this day marks our achievement of having completed said book, of having going through rewrites and edits, waking up in the middle of the night when we’ve just realized how we will pull the entire plot together, chuckling to ourselves or even crying to ourselves as we write out a scene, and many times of having to tell our own families “Not now, I’m working, okay?

Tiny Little Writing Update

All right. Two personal blog entries in a row. Time to get my head back in the game.
 
Writing updates: My sequel toSURREAL ECSTASYis still in the publication process. I’m currently at almost 50,000 words for theDAYDREAMERsequel. That’s my top priority right now, but it’ll take a bit more time because I have some major renovating to do on its manuscript. I also have a new book of poetry I self-published not too long ago. It’s a kind of sampler of 50 of my favorite poems over the last 20-some odd years.

What's My Writing Process? (author tag!)

Hello, faithful blog readers. It’s been a while since I have posted on here, but a lot is going on.
 
First, I have finished the manuscript for Surreal 2, and it’s in the editing/publication process.
 
Second, I am now working on more sequels, but the details are coming in a moment.
 
This entry will be a little different from my usual delightful complaining. I’m participating in a sort of blog-tag with some author friends of mine. We do this to wake each other up and ask that they step away from the manuscripts to discuss the technicalities with the world.

Still Writing That Sequel

I'm still at it...this is my first experience in writing a sequel, and I have to admit, I'm having a hard time. 

Writing your first novel, or at least the first in a series, is fun because the sky's the limit. You can be almost finished writing that manuscript then suddenly wake up in the middle of the night and get a ridiculous idea to insert into your story's mythology to spice it up. Or, at the last minute, you can change one of the main characters from a single mom to a lesbian so she doesn't resemble you so much (not to mention taller, with curly hair, and can yell at a jerk until they feel two inches tall.
