The year in review… the next half

As we start the New Year, it’s time to look back at the second half of my writing year. After getting my books into a recently-opened new and second-hand bookstore called Bookworms, things seemed to slow down for the rest of the year. Although I donated the first book of my Scorched Earth trilogy, Scorched Earth: Arrival to the local library, nothing further has happened on that front, unfortunately. They were planning to do a display of my books and have a photo of me included. However, I last heard that one of my books hadn’t been returned and with lockdown still being somewhat in effect, the fines for late returns have been relaxed, so there’s a good chance that the book won’t ever be returned.

Meanwhile, I completed the second book of the trilogy, Scorched Earth: Takeover and while editing, I immediately set to work on the final book, Scorched Earth: Revolution. You can view my progress on the book so far in my recent posts over the past few months here on Backroom Bulletin, where I’ve reached my end of the year goal of 30,000 words. (More on that in next week’s blog.)

In November, I spoke to the manager of a bookstore I frequent about getting my books into the store. She gave me some information regarding what I have to do, and that’s something I’m hoping to get moving on in the new year. I also approached another bookstore which gave me the contact info for their head office. They have asked for synopses of some of my books and that’s another thing I’m currently working on.

But the big news to cap off the year is that two days after reaching my end of the year goal, the author copies of Scorched Earth: Takeover arrived. That’s just one day before the six-year anniversary of the arrival of my first book, Fire Angel: Genesis.
