October Update, 2022

Hello everyone; I hope you’ve all been having a lovely autumn so far—and an equally as wonderful spring to those in the southern hemisphere. My sister and I were admiring the change in color while out driving the other day, though here in my part of Wisconsin it’s not too far along. A few pockets of yellow amid a blanket of green, but it’s getting there! I expect I’ll become a real shutterbug once the colors become more prominent.

I’ve spent more time outside and visiting nearby places in an effort to break out of my anxious shell. So far it seems to be working, but I have a difficult time maintaining routines at the start. Just gotta keep it going for a month or two and then it’ll come naturally. Good thing I enjoy colder weather.

During September, I picked up a good few books by fellow indie authors that I anxious to dig into. However, I’m very much a “one book at a time” person and I’m still slogging my way through my current read, Dragons of Autumn Twilight by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. I’m definitely enjoying it, but I don’t think I was ready for how long it was when I started. At this point I feel committed to finish it and simply need some quiet time to sit down and binge the last quarter of the book.

All right, let’s talk about Lord of the Night Realm: Book II – Reunion! Writing had slowed significantly after the announcement of the serialization’s premature end when I took a necessary break, but since September I’ve slowly gotten the ball rolling again. I’m easily beyond 66% written now, looking at it from a chapter to chapter perspective. However, every chapter in the second half are a bit longer than those in the first half, so if we looked at it by overall length, we’re probably around 50-60%. But I find it easier to view my progress from chapter to chapter, so I’ll keep going with that. And as of right now, I’m still very much on track to finishing the writing process by the end of November.

Before I wrap this up, I wanted to say I was amazed by the September Kindle sale of Lord of the Night Realm: Book I – Sojourn. My expectations were exceeded tenfold and it really made my month! I hope that amid those who bought the book are many who will enjoy Ellie’s tale.

That’ll be all for now, so until the next one, take care!
