My apologies for the lack of activity on this blog lately. I’ve been quite busy. One of the things taking up a lot of my time is the sequel to RealmShift. I’ve been working on it a lot lately and I’m very happy with how it’s progressing. I’m not sure I’ll make the release date I was hoping for, which was supposed to be the end of this year, but I won’t miss that deadline by too much with any luck.
Ha! Luck. As if luck has anything to do with making a deadline. It’s important to make writing a priority. While it would be wonderful to have enough sales of books that I could write full-time, that’s a fantasy right now. One day it will happen (oh yes, one day it will) but, for now, I have to make a living other ways while I write. The large majority of writers have a seperate source of income, with most of them working a full time job while writing novels. We all dream of that bestseller that will catapult us to literary stardom, paying all the bills we could imagine, leaving us with nothing else to do but write more bestsellers. However, in the meantime, life continues to bugger up our plans.
Anyway, enough of my excuses. I could be putting this time into the next novel. So, for those fans of RealmShift, rest assured that the sequel is well under way and I’ll get it out to you all as soon as I think it’s ready.
In the meantime, if any local NSW writers that read this blog are interested in Romance as a genre, there’s a Romance Writers festival on at the New South Wales Writers’ Centre this Saturday. The NSW Writers’ Centre is a great thing to be a part of. If you’re a NSW writer, join up and take advantage of all the great stuff they have to offer. You can learn more about them at http://www.nswwriterscentre.org.au/
