I have a few works in progress currently, with a plan of releasing the first few of a series of shorter novels next year. I’m hoping that it will spur me on to keep writing. To get there, I still have a fair bit of work to do though, and I thought I’d make a list here. If nothing else, it will make it a bit easier for myself to get an overview of where I’m at!
Genre: Historical Romance (Regency)
Planned: A series of four books, all stand-alone, but connected by all being about the same family. Hoping to publish the first book in 2021.
Book 1: A Midsummer Night’s Kiss
Will need a proper edit before publication.
Book 2: Kissing the Rake
Needs full edit/proofread.
Book 3 & 4 are yet to be written, but they have a basic plot, the third also semi-plotted.
The Spellbound Series
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Planned: A series of X number of books all set in the same fantasy world, each with its own love story. Sort of stand-alone, but beneficial to read in order due to overarching plot spanning the series.
Prequel: Shadows & Lace
Written, but needs to be extended and edited/proofread. New scenes/additional details. (Currently 33k)
Book 1: Bowstrings & Velvet
Written, but is having a rather large rewrite, adding dual POV (from single) and extending with several new scenes. (Currently 33k)
Book 2: Damask & Deception
In progress, nearly finished. Will hopefully only need editing/proofreading. (Currently 56k)
Book 3: Silk & Steel
In progress, but on hold since I can only write one at a time. (Currently 21k)
Book 4 onwards: Ideas only so far. I will most likely switch the order slightly, making D&D book 3 or 4 and Silk & Steel a little further down the line as well.
I’m really excited about both of my series, and I really hope I can find the time and energy to pull this together and actually publish something next year. I’d like to try to release the first four or so Spellbound books on a somewhat regular schedule, hopefully giving myself time to prepare more stories while doing that. It’s why I want to have a few of them ready before I start releasing. I also want to release the first Howerty novel next year. So a lot to do to get ready. Wish me luck!
