…And I’m back! Welcome to Outpost Dire, home to the shared Dire Universe of epic, grimdark fantasy, military sci-fi, thrillers, and more! Let’s dive right in.
As the title implies, I’m 100% finished with the first draft of THOLAC. The book, on the shorter side of my works, comes out to 123K words spanning 30 chapters, a prologue, and an epilogue. I have some ideas where I want to go with the series or trilogy—still haven’t decided what I want to do in that regard—but the immediate future, the events following the closing of the book, remain a mystery. For now.
So, it’s time to switch gears, and do something else to get the batteries recharged to dive back into round 2 of THOLAC. During this time, I’m going to focus on getting volume II published for my fantasy series. It’s ready to go, but I need to come up with a marketing plan. If you know of anyone that would like to give pointers, let me know! I’m also looking to expand my writing group that I’m a part of. So, I may open up my website for submissions and offer critique swaps to other writers out there. Stay tuned for that post shortly.
That’s it for this round, short and sweet. I shall return…
