The big news this week is I have completed the outline for the third Aeonlith Chronicles book which is now titled A Tempest for the Tyrants! It’s currently sitting at 55 chapters which means it might be something around 90,000 words or so. I’m also sitting on some news for book 1, A Veil for the Vanguard, but I’m not quite ready to release that… but if you look at the image above, you might find something of interest!
Book 2 of the series, An Abyss for the Ashes, is now going through the editing phase. I foresee this one being a bit of a challenge as I got really sloppy near the end of writing the first draft. Lots of smaller plots going on that I would routinely forget about as well as perhaps changing my mind on who to kill off. Ah, life of a writer!
The third short story set in the Aeonlith Chronicles universe is now complete! This one has gone through multiple titles but I’ve settled on The Tied Knots. Previously, I was calling it Pledges and Promises or something along those lines but it never quite fit. I’ve also finished the covers for the two short stories which you can see below:
Finally, I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve actively started developing a brand new science-fiction series! This one will be a bit interesting as I want to be a lot more rigid in outlining it beforehand. I’m looking at making it a six book series and I’m currently outlining the series. Once that’s done, I’ll go back and outline each book. The reason for this is while I know how the Aeonlith Chronicles ends, how I get to that ending is a bit on the loose side… which means sitting down and outlining the next book take a bit of time. I’m curious to see if outlining everything beforehand means I can write far more quickly.
Here’s this weeks numbers:
I just made progress on An Abyss for the Ashes! So far I’m 1.7% complete on the Editing phase.
I just completed the Outlining phase of A Tempest for the Tyrants! Now onto First Draft!
I just finished Final Revisions on The Tied Knots! Woohoo!
