Another month has come and gone, without a lot of fanfare. But things are definitely rolling along. Here’s a few updates:

Next Hidden Wizard Book: Soul of Light

Progress has been good and steady and I’m just at around 20% of my target word count now. It’s been a great experience so far. I’ve got the right mix of hitting the key parts of my outline and discovering things on the way through. And that’s what you really want.

I am just about to write up the design brief for the cover artwork. I’ll share the sweet art when it is ready.

Vincent’s backstory: Tales of the Wandering Blacksmith

Now that I’m writing the last book in the series, I’ve had another look at these shorts and I think I will have a crack at finishing the stories I had planned. There’s been a few requests for more of these, and now I want to get them out. I can’t think of a better time!

Testing New Processes

I’m always looking for new ways to increase my word count so that I can write books faster. One avenue that I’ve never explored before is dictation. I’ve done a few tests and it seems promising, so I’m going to start using it and see how I go. I won’t use it for the current book, but if my mini experiments go well I may trial in on my next book.

That’s it for now, thanks for reading and I’ll be back soon with another update. And maybe even another short story.

      Hey Bryce, thanks for following the series and I’m so glad you are enjoying it. For the last book I’m targeting September / October. I need to give it proper attention but I also don’t want people to have to wait too long. I’ll firm up those dates as I get a bit closer to release.
