Nearly two months ago, I sat down and wrote a list of all the books I (currently) have in the works: three series of five, a trilogy, at least two novellas, and a collection of short stories.
Then I pulled out the calendar and planned their releases based on my current writing schedule.
… At that rate, I will be writing until 2031. A time where, if we haven’t fallen into some form of dystopian future, we might be planning day trips to the moon.
Needless to say, I need to get writing. And that’s what I’ve been doing. My goal now is to have the last two books out in the Louisiangel series by the end of next year. Currently, I’m planning on April and December, but I do hope to move that up. Then I will (hopefully) be simultaneously releasing Cupid’s trilogy (this is more spin-off, then central to the plot. It will be an LGBT urban fantasy, and Cupid deserves someone to make him happy while showing the world just how awesome he is), and now that you’ve met him in ‘Angel Tormented’, the second series focusing on Gabriel. They’re both still taking form, so I won’t say much more on them, but I will keep you posted.
Otherwise, I’ve been working on book four, ‘Angel in Crisis’.
November is NaNoWriMo and I haven’t been able to complete that in years. The last one was because I had too much going on in real life, and the one before that was because I was editing. When Camp NaNo came up last month, I set myself the target of 50,000 words, and by the skin of my teeth, won! I’ve continued writing, and I'm happy to report THE DRAFT OF BOOK 4 IS COMPLETE!
Now I will sit on it for a while (move onto book 5, 'Angel Exalted') and try to read books 1-3 before even thinking about coming back to the draft. I shared my editing process earlier, but my first step is check for continuity.
After that, that’s when the editing process kicks in. While there’s a possibility that I might be able to get it out this year, I can say for certainty that will not happen. I’m saving for a house, and hope to be in a position to buy early next year – which means covers and editors need to go on hold for a bit. I’m not prepared to deliver anything sub-par, so unfortunately, that means you need to wait a little longer.
I will be continuing to write though. Like I said before, there’s a lot of books I want to write, and I want to get started on those additional scenes for this current series. Those will be going out on this website and Wattpad. Both of which are free to read, so you will have something to tide you over.
I also haven’t sent a newsletter out in a while, so I need to do that. That will be the first place for the bonus stories, so make sure you sign up if you want to read them first!

I don't like rating books. I think a 'good book', much like 'good music', is subjective.
