Aeonlith Saga Book 2 Progress Update

Lots of progress on the second Aeonlith book! I’m still two to three chapters behind but I have the weekend to catch up. The hope is that I’ll have the first draft of Aeonlith Book 2 done by the end of July. If I fall too far behind, I’ve already set up a 3 day writing retreat for myself where I’ll hole myself up in an Airbnb and spend all my time writing. What I’m really hoping for is that I’ll be done book 2 before the Airbnb and can get a big head start on book 3.

While there’s no update for A Veil for the Vanguard below, I assure you, it’s coming along! Just need to implement the changes from my editor and it is pretty much ready to go out to my beta readers.

I didn’t make any progress on any of the short stories since I’m more concerned with finishing up the novels. I need to get one more short set in the Aeonlith universe written soon, it just isn’t a priority at the moment. Here’s this week’s stats:I just completed the Outlining phase of Aeonlith Saga Book 2! Now onto Writing!

Two Books and a Short! Progress Update

Got loads done this week on both A Veil for the Vanguard AND book 2 in the Aeonlith Saga. First up, I finished my edits on Veil before a quick edit by my editor and then it’s off to my beta readers. This has been a loooong time coming!

Book 2 has taken some structural changes as I write. This is normal for me since I have a habit of consolidating chapters and adding more as I write. I also never finished a more detailed outline for Book 2, adding more structural changes, so I’m almost done doing that. Should have it finished by this weekend.

A few more chapters are also in the can for Book 2 after hitting a rough spot. I’m about three chapters behind where I would like to be but, I’ll be honest, I knew I was being a bit unrealistic with my goal.

Finally, finished my major edits for my short story The Wizard and the Warrior and that’ll have to go to my editor before the beta reader process. Been meaning to finish this one as it will be a freebie for signing up to the mailing list.

All in all, pretty good week!

I just completed the Editing phase of A Veil for the Vanguard! Now onto Proofing!

A Veil for the Vanguard and Aeonlith Saga Book 2 Progress Update

I’ve unfortunately fell behind on writing the second book and finishing the first. Fortunately, A Veil for the Vanguard is almost complete! As you can tell from the chart below, book one in the Aeonlith Saga is about a month late but I’m happy to announce that editing should be done by the end of next week.

Book two is coming along slowly and I think I’ll actually be able to hit my deadline with an aggressive writing schedule. This not only takes into account book 2 but also the start of book 3 in order to get that complete in a timely manner.

I’ll also try to make these updates a bit more frequently since it’s been a while since the last update and that’s unfair for anyone keeping track.

Welcome to the new home of Danny F. Santos!

Well, it’s an old home that’s just been revamped.

I’ve been meaning to rebuild this site into something that is usable and have finally gotten around to it. I’ll be adding more to it slowly as we draw near the launch of the first proper novel in the Aeonlith Chronicles.

Right now there’s only a little bit of information on the series but over the next few months I’ll add more and more. Lots of exciting things are being cooked up on my end and I can’t wait to share them with you!
