I’m currently a few chapters into my major revision of Empire of Chains, and I’m enjoying the process. It’s been fun to revisit these characters and take the opportunity to make an even better book for readers.
This new version will be even more action-packed than the original, and I do love writing action scenes. I’m also really excited to get to the reworked ending I have in mind. Thankfully, it won’t result in major changes for the rest of the series. It’s more a way of making the ending even more exciting.
I’ve learned so much about myself as a writer in the last few years, and I’m eager to take all those new lessons and use them to make my first book something I can feel even more proud of.
So far, I wish the revisions were going a bit faster, but that should come in time.
So it has definitely been an interesting time for me as a writer. My new engineering job has required me to do quite a bit of typing, so sometimes I’m worried that I’ll start getting strain in my hands and wrists. So far, that hasn’t happened, but it makes me nervous. I’ve also run into the fun of working from home. My engineering workstation and my writing workstation are in the same place, and it can be difficult to switch gears.
That being said, I’m starting to figure out where I want to go with things moving forward. I’ve recently begun a complete rewrite of Empire of Chains, my first published novel. The rest of the series will see a few changes as well, and I intend to re-release all the books at some point, though that could be quite a while at this point in time.
I’m excited for the prospect of a relaunch because I feel like I’m in a much better position now to do it right, both in terms of my abilities as a writer and my experience and resources for marketing.
I’m considering a relaunch for my Sunweaver trilogy as well. The first two books would see a fair amount of changes, and I’d wait to get them ready before publishing all three books.
For both of these series, when they are ready, I’ll probably do a rapid release schedule (something like every fifteen days).
I also have two more trilogies I need to revise.
I’m not sure what new material I’m going to write next, but if I can’t think of anything, I have plenty to keep me busy.
