Got my mojo back!

Where to start after such a long period of absence from my blog and publishing? The last few years have been one hell of a ride for the world and for me personally. Most of my writing sort of stagnated while I threw myself into work, which grew busier than usual during the Covid period – luckily for me, considering how many people battled during this time.

I did do some writing to keep me sane – mostly for the Grumpy Old Gods anthologies and Original Souls, which I’m co-authoring.

The next Wizard of Ends and Legends of Origin books are still coming. To all those who have been waiting endlessly for the next books, please accept my apologies – ‘life’ just didn’t allow me to work on these books the last few years and I would hate to put out a subpar book just so I can say I did. Of these two series, the next Wizard of Ends book will probably be published first, simply because that’s the closest to being ready. The first book in both series is free, so grab them if you haven’t already!

Original Souls (working title) will be the next book I publish. Although it’s a fiction book, it’s very technical in some ways, so it was vital to get it all straight and in a way that will make sense to readers. It’s been four years in the making and the last chapter has finally been written! Original Souls, a thriller fiction book based on fact, is now in the first editing stage! I cannot begin to describe my excitement! You will hear more about this book soon.

I’ve also been tortured with a brilliant idea for a sequel to Ashes to Ashes – tortured, because I’ve been unable to actually start writing it yet! Ashes to Ashes was always intended to be a standalone book, but a sequel demands to be written, so I must comply! I’m currently doing some research on the side for this book, which I think I will title Lust to Dust. This will be the next book I start writing, because I will go mental if I don’t get it out of my head. That said, the next Wizard of Ends book might still be published first, since it’s very close to being ready. I’ll have to see how it goes – I don’t want to make promises and then break them.

I will also soon have a new and improved author website and blog! It’s an exciting time for me and I’m looking forward to the next stage of my author journey. This time, I’m doing my best not to overextend myself so I can actually get something published this year (I’m aiming for at least two books) – too much at once and my mojo seems to vanish! I have a feeling this will be my busiest year yet with regards to writing, so watch this space!
