Coming Soon – Big News!

The heading pretty much covers the content of this post, but I shall still elaborate further.

I will soon be making a big announcement regarding ‘Shadow of Aether’. I can’t say anything else at the moment but I imagine the big post will be within the next few weeks.

Stay tuned for the big reveal.

An Overdue Update

Well, I’ve been a bit quiet on the website front recently. However, there has been a good reason for this. I recently got married and went on my honeymoon. Also, it is a very busy time of year for my day job. Having said that, I haven’t been idle as far as my books are concerned. Here are some of the upcoming posts / things I am working on:

1. Concept art for the characters from Shadow of Aether.

2. Preview excerpts from both Shadow of Aether and Nomadic Guardian.

3. A short story from my upcoming anthology.

4. More information regarding the publication of my books. First up will be Shadow of Aether.

Work Page – Updated

I have updated the Work page of the site will the following pieces of information:

Shadow of Aether – I have included the blurb for ‘Shadow of Aether’ and have moved it to the top of the Work page in a new ‘Coming Soon’ section. I will add links to the page for orders as soon as they go live.

CEA Greatest Anthology – I have replaced the old link with a direct link to the Amazon page where the book can be ordered from.

Untitled Anthology – I have added the anthology about Orbis to the ‘In Progress’ section. This is a project I am particularly excited about, however my plan is to release this book after ‘Nomadic Guardian’ so it will be a while until it is released. Due to the nature of the book being an anthology, I will release small snippets of it on my website over time.

Editing Update

Once again, I’m aware I haven’t posted on here for a while but rest assured I’ve been working hard with my writing.

Nomadic Guardian – I’m roughly about a third of the way through my current draft of the novel and I’m very pleased with how it is going. As soon as I’m done with the current draft, I will be looking for an editor to work with.

Shadow of Aether – The novella is very close to its final format. The main things that need to be done are the formating and the start and end of the manuscript.

All in all, I’m happy with the progress of both of these projects. More information will be posted on here soon.

Project Updates

It’s been a while since my last update and during that time I’ve been working hard on various projects.

Shadow of Aether – An exciting development regarding my novella is in the works but I can’t talk about it yet. As soon as I can, I shall post it here on my website.

Nomadic Guardian – I have gone through my previous draft of my novel and made notes regarding the next draft. I now have a clear plan of action with regards to this project and it is moving ahead smoothly.

Anthology of Short Stories – Closely linking to the above, I have cut some minor sub-plots from the novel in the interest of streamlining the plot and telling the best story possible. However, these sub-plots have not been forgotten. They are going to be reworked into short stories of their own and will be published as part of my anthology to help flesh out the world of Orbis.

Other – As any author knows, many ideas pop into our heads. Some are forgotten and others flourish into fully fledged stories of their own. One of these ideas, a potential sequel to Shadow of Aether, has already been bullet pointed and jotted down. I won’t come back to this now until after I have finished work on the redraft of Nomadic Guardian, but I am excited about continuing the stories of the characters of Shadow of Aether.

More information, particularly with regards to Shadow of Aether, will be posted soon.

Shadow of Aether – Blurb

On my last post, I provided some information about my upcoming novella – Shadow of Aether. Now that the blurb is ready, I am ready to share it. So here it is:

Shadow of Aether – A Novella

Paradox is known throughout the sprawling metropolis of Aether for three things: her superspeed; her ability to see visions of the past, present and future and her less-than-charming personality.

When she has a vision that shows her a mysterious force taking over and corrupting her homeland, she decides to take matters into her own hands.

During the mission, she comes across someone who changes everything.

Now, Paradox must do whatever she can to put things back to normal.

Shadow of Aether – A Novella

I am currently editing my novella, as well as writing another short story, and during this process I have decided upon a name for it.

The novella will be called Shadow of Aether and will be self published on Amazon.

Shadow of Aether stars Paradox, from my previous short story. After a vision that she interprets as a warning, Paradox quests to prevent a corrupting presence from destroying her world.

A full blurb will be coming soon and will then be posted on the Work page of this site.

Current Projects

This post is intended to clarify where I am with my current projects and my intentions for each project.

Just Another Day – My short story that has been published in the CEA Greatest Anthology Written. This can be read by purchasing the book from here.

This short story serves as a prequel for an upcoming series. The series in question will be published online episodically. It will be available on several websites for free, including this one. The current working title for the series is Omega.

Currently Untitled Novella – The Novella is coming along nicely and is currently being edited and redrafted. My intention is to publish it as a stand alone story on Amazon.

Anthology – As well as the novella, I have also decided to publish an anthology of stories set on Orbis. The short stories will focus on various characters in the world of Orbis, helping to expand the world. Speaking of which…

Short stories – One of these stories is called Aura, focusing on the first school days of the Unitas known as Aura from Nomadic Guardian, as well as the relationship between her and her mother.

Nomadic Guardian – Very little has changed since my last post about my novel. When the novella and the anthology are finished, I will turn my full attention back to this, making sure that the edits match up with the rest of the stories set within Orbis.

That about sums up all of my current projects. I will post updates whenever possible to inform you all about my work, but I intend to put my best efforts into each individual story. Therefore, it may take a while before the stories are published, but I believe that this is for the best.

Work in Progress

A quick update about my work.

I have started writing my, currently unnamed, novella starring Paradox. I will post updates on here to let you know about my progress.

The short story I was working on has been submitted and accepted. When the anthology is being published, I will post about it on here.

More news will be coming soon.

 

Plan

I’m currently fleshing out a plan for my next story. The plan is for a novella that will hopefully be roughly around 30000 words (although this may change to accommodate the needs of the story).

The story will be another that has Paradox as the main character, although it will be a one-off story of it’s own as opposed to a sequel. It is another story hoping to flesh out the world of Orbis.

The eventual aim is to self-publish the novella online as an e-book. This could potentially happen through Amazon, but I’m not going to rush into anything. First things first, though; write the story and give it the time it deserves.
