Just wanted to talk a bit about my current work(s) in progress. I say works because, while I am working on the third book in my Titan’s Legacy series, I’m also working on the first books of two other series. And scatterbrained is the way I feel some days, trying to keep three sets of characters and three story lines straight in my head.
My problem is that I’ve been working on the latter two books on and off for some time now and, for some odd reason, I’ve recently become very excited by both of these adventures. I don’t want to say too much about either one, except that they are both in the Fantasy genre, although one is Young Adult and the other is General Fantasy.
I’m a bit worried that my readers who enjoy YA Fantasy won’t get into my General Fantasy story. But it’s so good (IMHO), that I’m hoping that they will enjoy it regardless.
The YA Fantasy I’m writing is grittier than the world of the Titan’s Legacy, in that the hero is a boy who’s lived on the streets for several years and has experienced more of the dark side of life than a lot of young main characters in YA Fantasy do. But I think it gives the story an edginess that (hopefully) will enhance my readers experience when they read the book. Or maybe not. Who knows?
The problem for any writer is that all we can do is put our best work out there and hope that it is appreciated by you guys, the readers. But it’s only a hope and there are no guarantees in writing.
At any rate, I’m hoping to get the YA Fantasy novel done, shined up and available to readers before Christmas. The third novel in the Titan’s Legacy series will be out early in the new year. Thanks for letting me clear my head a bit. Back at it now!
