A benefit of taking an over month-long break: it gives you plenty of time to work on personal projects. A determent of taking an over month-long break: it’s hard to stop working on personal projects when it ends.
Starting off, let’s talk about the blog itself. Luckily, this won’t take long. Cause there’s nothing to tell. Content will continue to come out as scheduled. Unless something big happens, that’s not going to change for a long while.
I am, however, starting to explore plans to bring back the Energia series. I’ve left that hanging for too long now. But more on that when/if it happens.
In previous entries in this series, I focused primarily on my Threads of Reality series. While I’m still working on that one, and still exploring publishing options for it, any potential plans are currently on hold. The first book is in need of a few more edits, and the second book is still in the early rough drafting phase, and they’ll both likely remain there for quite some time.
In the meantime, I’ve completed a rough draft for a novella in a new series. I’ll spare you the details for now. It’s unlikely this series will see the light of day until after ToR is published, and that isn’t going to be anytime soon. But that one was a ton of fun to work on and I cannot wait for the day when I get to share it with you guys.
After extensive edits. Of all the rough drafts I’ve finished, this one embodies the rough part the most.
Currently, I’m focusing on a third project unrelated to either of those. I can’t share many details; it’s still far from finished. But progress on it so far has been substantial! Only two weeks into writing the rough draft and it’s already passed 20000 words! I am extremely excited about this one and I will continue to work on it throughout the coming months.
Unlike all the others, this book is not planned to be a series. This is a one and done kind of story. So, in all likelihood, you’ll be seeing it before ToR or the novella project. Or, if I ultimately go down the road of self-publishing, you might end up seeing all three at once.
I know I’ve made, like, eighteen different promises regarding publishing over the years and fallen through on all of them. So I’m going to avoid making bold claims. I’ll get back to you guys when I have an actually solid plan, one that I’ve taken active steps in fulfilling.
God, I must sound like an ass in this update. “Hey guys, I’ve been working on stuff! Can tell you nothin’ about any of it yet, but I have been working! I’ll tell you all more later, maybe. See ya!”
Anyways, see ya!

Are you pursuing traditional publishing? Or self-publishing? I get the impression you’re looking to go the traditional route, but I was curious and figured I’d ask!

You would be correct! My current plan, such as it is, is to explore traditional publishing options. If those don’t work out, I’ll focus my efforts on self-publishing.
