Quarterly writing update #amwriting #fantasy #romance

I had high hopes at the start of 2022 that I would get stuck into self publishing and have 7 books published by the end of the year.

The good news is I have my first short story collection out on 8th April, which features characters from my fantasy worlds. Further details below.

As to the 7 book goal… it seems unlikely. But maybe I’ll suddenly gain superhero typing skills and bash out the next books in my romance and fantasy series. For now, I need to be more grounded and think about what I can achieve over the next 3 / 4 months.

The Mermaid Hotel Romance Series

  • Evie’s Song is with beta readers. I plan to work on their suggestions as they come in. I also need to decide if I want to approach agents and publishers direct, or launch the series myself.
  • Make a plan for the whole series and series arc. Come up with titles.
  • Write the remaining scenes for book 2 and get in shape for beta readers.
  • Type up and expand upon book 3.
  • Later in the year – I already have lots of ideas for book 4, coming up with an outline might make the writing process quicker.

Starlight Prophecy Fantasy Series

  • I’m just starting to work on book 1 which needs development and scenes added.
  • Write the end of book 2 and make changes to reflect the changes from book 1’s storyline.
  • Later in the year – Plan out book 3.

Second Short Story Collection

  • Write a few more stories and sort through what will go into this edition.
  • Later in the year – Send to my editor and prepare to publish.

Other Writing tasks / events

  • CBC evening webinar in April ‘What’s next for your novel’
  • Winchester attend online talks and visit in person to discuss romance book with an agent / editor.
  • Weekend writing a novel workshop in Stratford – June.

What are your writing / reading plans for the next few months?

  1. Wow you are busy! Wouldn’t it be great to get those superhero typing skills! I love how you laid out what you want to achieve for each story/series. I may have to do something similar on my blog to keep me on track and give me some accountability (if that’s okay with you?)
