Monday Update Part 5

One year ago from yesterday, I released my first book, Broken Things. Since then, I’ve published two others, with my fourth book coming out within a few days.

Broken Things was the novel I wanted to write, a story that I felt was inspired. It is the novel I wanted to launch my career with. I’m still proud of it, even though my writing has continued to grow since then. It’s still my favorite of all my stories. It’s taken me across Southern Idaho to book signings in a variety of venues from an aquarium and to coffee bars and bookstores. It also continues to sell the best of my three titles, so far.
Broken ThingsEven though I am frequently asked if this book will ever have a sequel, I really don’t want to lessen the book by giving it a series. There’s some books (and movies) that lose everything they stand for because of further development, and this I will always believe is one of them. It has reached rank #1,138 in paid bestsellers on Amazon, and broken into the top #100 from a promo free run.

In this second year, I have another sci-fi novel coming out, probably a month or two away. It will be for those of you who enjoyed my first Sci-fi, with a story-line that will hopefully make you think and feel. More on that at a later date.

I will also be writing my other two genre fiction series, being Hungry Gods and Spilling Blood. I’ve promised my wife her advanced copy of Death’s Reach will be in her hands over the next couple of days, which means that you will be able to read it within a week.

In Death’s Reach, the zombie apocalypse takes a number of horrifying new turns as zombie gods begin to extend their influence over the world. There are few sanctuaries left, and the survivors from book 1 find their resolve tested as the world descends into chaos.

If you liked Death Storm, you’ll love Death’s Reach.

The Official 2014 Resolutions/Goals Post

Before I get started on New Year’s Resolutions, I thought I’d take a quick look back at what I said I’d do for 2013, and where I fell short.

The Best and Worst of 2013

fellshort

First: 13 Novels – Yep, didn’t happen. Three happened. Actually, I’ve written four, but I’m saving one to release in 2014.

Second: 5,000 words a day. Sometimes I was lucky to hit 500. My best writing day was just over 8,000. However, I I’m currently hitting between 2k to 6k a day for the end of this year.

2013 did see the release of Broken Things, a novel I’m very proud of, and continues to be my bestselling book.

I also released the first book of two series, Hungry Gods and Spilling Blood.

I did not stay true to one genre, but I never intended to.

On to 2014

kitty1). Since last year I wanted to write 13 novels, this year I’m setting my goal for 14 for this year. Do I care that I didn’t hit my goal last year? No way. Is it going to deter me? Not a chance. 14 novels.

Book 2 of both The Hungry Gods and Spilling Blood series will see release in the first quarter of 2014, and books 3 to both following. I have outlines for two more Sci-Fi books waiting in the queue, one additional fantasy, and a ton of horror.

2). Word count goal: 1 million words in 2014. That’s less than 3,000 words a day, but I intend to achieve much more than that.

3). Updates. Monday ones, Just like this one, every Monday. Starting this week, I’m going to actually use Tumblr too. I think I’ve got maybe three posts ever there. I’m going to use it to post daily word counts and how my goals are coming along.

4). This is my Maybe Goal. Maybe I’ll use my newsletter. Maybe.

And with that, I’ll leave you with one update: my next book, and first book of 2014, will be Death’s Reach, Book 2 of the Hungry Gods series, and it will be released in January. That’s all! 😀

Foreign Identity lowres

My Romantic Sci Fi Thriller Foreign Identity is FREE this week at most online retailers. Check out this character interview with Jax, then find the links below and be sure to get your free download while you can! (Free promo ends July 26th.)

Who is Jax?

As the author, I have the advantage of being able to materialize in and out of my story at will. This gave me the unique opportunity to speak with two of my characters and find out how they felt about their dire circumstances.

Deep in the heart of a cold building runs a labyrinth of corridors. It was in one of these halls that I stumbled upon two people, known to each other only as “Jax” and “Kel.” They were wandering, seemingly lost, but I managed to snag a few minutes with Jax to find out a little more about what is going on in this strange place.

BC: So you just made it out of a prison of sorts. What was your reaction to waking up trapped like that?

Jax (runs hands through his hair): Waking up in chains was a shock, that’s for sure. But once I came to, I pushed aside my confusion and focused on the problem. It seemed to be a puzzle, sorta like everything else in this place. After that, it was just putting the pieces together.

BC: Your problem-solving skills must be excellent. How does it feel to have escaped that room?

Jax: At first I was relieved we’d found a way out. But now I’m not so sure. Maybe that was all part of the plan… I keep wondering if maybe we were safer in that cell.

BC: That’s quite a statement. What do you make of this place? You’ve found what appear to be other puzzles as well. What do you think the significance might be?

Jax: No idea yet. But I’ll tell you one thing. The more rooms we find, the more sure I am there’s something going on here. And it can’t be good. I’m guessing we were meant for more than to be prisoners—but what? And where’s our captor? There’s definitely something strange behind this place. It creeps me out.

BC: What can you tell me about Kel, the woman you were imprisoned with?

Jax: (Eyes shift over to where she’s standing out of hearing range.) I don’t totally get her yet. She seems nice and all, but I can tell she’s holding something back. I guess we both are. It’s hard to know what to make of our situation and how to act around each other.

BC: It seems a bit odd that you both have amnesia. You can’t remember your past, but have you seen any clues about yourself since you woke up here? Any guesses about what sort of life you might have had before you lost your memory?

Jax (shrugs): I guess I’m pretty logical. Figuring out the puzzle with our chains. So maybe some profession involving math—or construction. I sorta have a photographic memory—I can memorize floorplans in my head.

BC: It must be nice to have a gift like that.

Jax: I guess. It’s just…weird. I mean, it feels totally normal to me, but it seemed to freak Kel out a little when she found out.

BC: Kel is the only one in your entire world right now. What’s it like to have no memories of anyone else?

Jax (Takes a deep breath and lets it out slowly.): Well, it’s kinda trippy. I feel like I should know other people, I even remember what kids are, though I can’t remember a specific person. I guess if I have to be here with anyone, I’m glad it’s Kel. She’s pretty good company. (He glances at her again and then his voice lowers.) You want to know the weirdest part of it? I feel this strange connection to her. I don’t know… Just like there’s a reason we’re here together.

BC: Is there any…physical attraction between you?

Jax: (Reddens slightly.) Maybe. I’m a guy, I notice women—that’s normal, right? Can’t really help but be aware of each other, what with us both being prisoners and all. (Clears his throat.) I mean, she’s not bad to look at, either.

BC: You’ve been searching the corridors. What’s your plan from here on out?

Jax: Getting out of here. Getting home—wherever that is. Hopefully we can both figure out who we are in the process, maybe find a way to get our memories back. If we can’t…well, we’ll deal with that when the time comes. First step is finding a way out. If it’s possible, I’ll find it. I’m not quitting until I have the answer.

BC: Thanks for taking time to chat and good luck!

Jax didn’t seem too happy at my abrupt and somewhat flippant exit, but I’m sure he’ll be able to figure out the mysteries behind the place–I just hope it’s sooner rather than later.

More About Foreign Identity

Cold. Confusion. Fear. This is how it all begins.

Waking up without your memory in a cell and bound by chains is terrifying.

Two nameless strangers, a man and a woman, find themselves imprisoned together. With no memories of their own identities, let alone their captor and tormentor, escape is the only option. The pair faces a bizarre labyrinth of rooms and clues that confuse more than they explain. Every discovery only brings more questions.

Who captured them? Why were they taken? What does their captor want from them? What can the riddles mean?

Who are they?

Lacking allies and options, the duo must learn to trust one another. Mazes, puzzles, and even strange, lurking creatures force them to rely on their wits–and each other–for survival. But survival isn’t enough. They need answers.

Will the answers be enough? Will the truth bring them closer together, or drive them forever apart? Will discovering their identities finally bring them home?

July BBF button copyEvery day this week, I am featuring a different author on my blog as part of the Blogger Book Fair. Check back tomorrow for another author.

July Happenings

July is looking to be a busy month. 🙂

DEATH STORM – Hungry Gods Book 1

DEATH STORM, Book 1 in the Hungry Gods Trilogy is being released just in time to start the month. That means that if you are sick of me talking about BROKEN THINGS, it will be taking a second seat for the new material. Death Storm is a dark fantasy apocalypse featuring a world of sword and sorcery getting to deal with a zombie apocalypse. Watch for a cover reveal soon.

JULY BOOK SIGNINGS

I have not signed on for any book signings this month, but watch for details. I am hoping to feature the new novel at any and all appearances, but it will depend on how quickly I get my books from the printer.

BLOGGER BOOK TOUR

For the end of  July, watch for a Blogger Book Tour. I am planning to feature/host 5 other authors, and visit their blogs in turn.

MISC

Finally, wonder why it’s taken me so long to finish this last book? I’m easily distracted. I’ve started 9 manuscripts over the last couple of months, chasing a lot of fun ideas. some of these manuscripts are already nearly 25% written. I’m making a goal to start finishing all of these projects that I’ve started, one book at a time. As soon as Death Storm hits the virtual shelves, I’ll reveal the next Work-in-Progress.
