The Revolution Diaries part 36

With the sad passing of my dad this week, my writing was somewhat curtailed. Still, I completed chapter sixteen of the final book of the Scorched Earth trilogy, Scorched Earth Revolution, and moved on to work on chapter thirty-two. This brings me to having just a chapter and a half left before all the charactersContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 36”

The Revolution Diaries part 35

Last week I mentioned that I’d realized I might have to add a few extra chapters to the last book of the Scorched Earth trilogy. I did end up doing so, although not in the way I’d initially expected. When looking over what I’d written so far, I thought I could avoid adding a coupleContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 35”

The Revolution Diaries part 34

I spent this week focusing on neatening up the third book of the Scorched Earth trilogy, Scorched Earth: Revolution. I rearranged a few chapters and added or deleted various lines from previously completed chapters, before finishing off chapter thirty-one. Then I began working on chapters thirty-two and thirty-three while adding random lines to random chaptersContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 34”

The Revolution Diaries part 32

This week I finally managed to get through to the head office of the second bookstore I’d approached. However, they said they could only take my books via a distributor. They were kind enough to provide me the contact info of a few, so guess that’s my next step. As I mentioned last week, IContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 32”

The Revolution Diaries part 31

This week began with some frustrating and disappointing news. As I mentioned before, I had asked the cover designer of my last three books, Marcus Meyer, if he’d be up for doing the cover of my current book, the final part of my Scorched Earth trilogy. I’d put my request in early, while I’m stillContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 31”

The Revolution Diaries part 30

This week I continued working on chapter twenty-four of the final book of the Scorched Earth trilogy, skipping slightly ahead to write the end of the chapter. All that’s left to do now is to bridge the gap between where I left off and the ending, and that’ll be another chapter done. After that, IContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 30”

The Revolution Diaries part 29

With the majority of the books I’ve written so far, I’ve noticed that once I reach the 30,000-word mark, I begin slowing down and this affects my output significantly until I finally pass that hump and hit the magic 40,000 words. This time, however, much to my surprise and delight, I’ve been making much betterContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 29”

The Revolution Diaries part 28

Having started chapter twenty of Scorched Earth: Revolution, the final book of the Scorched Earth trilogy last week, I’ve continued to work on that. The characters are starting to assemble for the eventual big team-up I have planned for them to fight back against the alien threat. I also took a small detour and jumpedContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 28”

The Revolution Diaries part 27

This week started with my cover designer, Marc Meyer, officially agreeing to do the cover for the third book of the Scorched Earth trilogy. I e-mailed him the example I showed you guys a couple of weeks ago, along with the character designs and an explanation of what I have in mind. Now the ballContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 27”

The Revolution Diaries part 26

Despite some incredibly hot days in the past week I managed to have a couple of good writing days, during which I wrote the greatest amount of words so far this year. This saw me complete chapter eighteen and begin chapter nineteen of the final book of the Scorched Earth trilogy, as I continue toContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 26”
