Happy New Year! What's Your Resolution?


The new year is always such an exciting time for me. I love the possibility of a fresh start (actually I'm sort of addicted to fresh starts...long story) and that's what New Year represents to me. It's a chance to reflect on everything you've accomplished in the last year and start making plans for the new one.

Every year I tend to feel as though I haven't done much, but as soon as I start going through everything, I always realize I've done a lot more than I imagined.

So, let's reflect. What have I done in 2016 (because I know it wasn't as much as I was hoping due to being sick for so long)? I finished Part 3 of my Shadow Stalker serial and started Part 4. I've begun the process of re-editing Part 1. I've started the foundational work on two new novel series, one of which will be written under a pen name. I also started a short story I was going to submit for entry in Crimson Edge's anthology, but I didn't finish it in time. Now, I'm reconsidering that story idea for another series. I also finished the edits on my Makari's Mission novella that's being published in a charity anthology being released this coming April. 

I've definitely accomplished a lot more than I thought. :-D

This coming year I will finish Part 4 of my Shadow Stalker serial. I also plan to write at least the first two novels in my A God's Deception series and the first in my other series. And towards the end of the year, I'll begin work on my new serial. I don't have a name for that one, but it's going to be about the origin of the shadow stalkers, so it will be pretty awesome! Oh, and I'm going to...yes, absolutely going to finish a short story for this years anthology that Crimson Edge will be putting out in 2018.

So are you taking advantage of this opportunity for a new start? What do you plan to accomplish in 2017? I'd love for you to contact me and tell me all about it!

Why Fantasy?

I often think about what attracts people to the fantasy genre. For me it has always been about an escape from reality.

When I was young, and life seemed so impossible, I wanted to get away. Now that my life is going well, and I'm content, I wonder why I'm still so drawn to fantasy. It's still an escape of sorts, but just an escape from every day life as a form of recreation. Even when life is great, you still need to get away from the normalcy of it all.

But there's also just something magical about it. I love reading about and living in other people's worlds. Why do you love fantasy?

 
Now that I'm working on Part 4 of my Shadow Stalker serial and I'll be releasing episodes of those soon, it's time to get caught up on your reading!

Part 1 is free and you can download it here. Also, as a subscriber, you should have gotten Part 2 free as well. If you haven't, you can download it through BookFunnel.

Then you can get Part 3 here!
I took a couple of weeks off for the holidays, so as per normal I'm a bit behind, but it was worth it. I had a great time just being with my family.

So, now that I'm getting back into the swing of things. I'll be working on Shadow Stalker Part 4 probably for the rest of this month. I plan to have it completed before I start work on my novels. I will be sending out the individual episodes to the mailing list as they are edited. They'll also be available for $0.75 through my website. Then the bundle will be released at the end of this year.

The main thing that makes fantasy, fantasy is the location. Fantasy always takes place in a fictitious world completely born out of the author's mind (except urban fantasy, of course).

The real trick is making the world seem real to the readers. World building is probably one of the hardest things to master for an author because there is so much involved. You have to create a monetary system, political systems, religion and so much more.

This month, spend some time on your world building and create your new reality!
