Trilogy Done

It has been a few weeks since the last post.  I have not been lazy.  Between school, work, the son’s football, and getting the books finished up, it has been rather crazy.  Regardless, The Amanai Resistance: Second Edition and The Amanai Resolution have been completed and are available on Amazon.  This means the trilogy is complete.  I might do a spin-off of The Event series, but that will have to wait until things settle down.  Unless I start doing cocaine, I am going to need sleep at some point.

Done’ish

The Amanai Resolution is on paper.  Editing should be done soon.  The book cover is scheduled to be done on June.  I have to admit that I am excited the story is concluding.  I think this has evolved nicely from the first through the third.  I would be worried about what to do with my time now, but I have a plethora of things to do to keep me busy.

Through Chapter 26

I have through chapter 26 written in The Amanai Resolution.  I only have a few more chapters until the story is on paper.  Editing has been going on with the earlier chapters, so I am confident the book will be done by the end of summer.  It has been a couple of weeks since my last post, but I have been very busy.  In fact, I am still very busy, so that will be all for this one.  I must finish these last chapters.

Editing Started

Even though I have yet to finish the entire book, editing has started on The Amanai Resolution.  I am hoping to finish the last ten chapters before the editors finish their first rounds of editing.  I guess I had better quit writing these posts and start writing the story!  Too bad things like jobs have to get in the way of writing books.  I’m going to drink my Bulletproof coffee and get to work!

Next Steps

The Amanai Deception has only been out for a few days, and I am already writing chapter 20 on The Amanai Resolution.  That milestone might seem impressive, but I assure you, it is not.  There has been no editing, and I have not gone back and revised any of the early chapters.  The story is mapped out.  All I have to do is write it.  Well, then revise, edit, modify, and edit it two more time.  My goal is to have it done and published by the end of summer.  I am just praying for calm seas this summer.

It Has Been a While

It’s been a while since I have posted anything.  There is no rest for the weary or the wicked.  While it might be up to debate whether I am wicked or not, I am definitely weary.  Working full time and going college full time are one thing, but add finishing the basement with all of the other life chores, and #BOOM!  My life is a little crazy.  Good news is the basement is coming along.  I laid to rooms of floor over the weekend.  All those rooms need are trim and some doors.

I did also get some more edits completed on The Amanai Deception and a couple of chapters written in The Amanai Resolution.  I know I really want the next book available, but with so much going on in life, it might be longer than I want.  Oh well.  One day at a time!

A Few More Down

I have through chapter fourteen written on this next book.  I am sure some of these chapters will be expanded when I go back through.  So far, I have about thirty chapters planned, but that will likely change.  It always does.  I can have the best laid-out plans, but once the story starts taking shape as it is written, those plans often change.  I think of something new to incorporate, or I run into a problem where the previous plans will not work.  Chapters are added.  Some chapters are combined or removed completely.  I hope to have another few chapters written this week, but it will all depend on how busy things are at home.

Writing Rampage

I have been on a writing rampage lately.  Over the last couple of days, I have written five chapters in The Amanai Resolution.  I am about to the halfway point in the book.  This is where things get exciting for me.  The meat of the story is about to be written.  After another ten chapters, I will be dreading writing as usually my fingers hurt like hell from the rampant typing, and I just want the thing over with.  I can never be satisfied.  My real challenge is what to do after this book is written.  Someone suggested a kid’s book.  I guess I could write a book for children and try to teach them not to be worthless.  Yes.  I think I have it now.

Finally…

My head stop hurting after another day.  Monday was a bit of a blur, and I was groggy most of it.  It makes it really difficult to write a research paper when I can barely think well enough to keep a 7,000 pound truck on the road.  I am hoping I didn’t make myself too stupid from that hit to the head.

On a brighter note, The Amanai Deception is over halfway through final editing.  With everything going on right now, I doubt I will have any time to complete the first draft of The Amanai Resolution.
