Hey friends, sorry I just kind of skipped July there for a moment.
Two quick things:
- I have started writing Memory Aether 2 (hence the lack of updates) and am about a third of the way through. There is so much stuff in this second book everyone, it’s going to be quite the read when it’s all done.
- I was interviewed and Memory Aether was featured in the Speculative Fiction showcase blog. Check it out! I was asked some really interesting questions and it was a lot of fun.
Now on to what it’s like so far writing a second book………it’s hard, as expected. It’s been five years since I had to forge a new narrative path. I’m carefully laying down the bones of the skeleton in order so I can add muscle and tendon to it, and I find myself rearranging them all the time. This book hasn’t told me what it wants to be like yet, and while it’s a fascinating process of discovery, sometimes I wish it would just make up its mind!
I’m also realizing there is hardly anything I can say about it, because it would spoil the twist ending of the first book for those of you who haven’t read it. Dang it. Kinda shot my marketing engine in the foot by doing that. Oh well.
What I can tell you is that I don’t plan to stay in Alexia’s point of view the entire time, and we are going to get to see things on an alien planet from someone else’s point of view. Someone who was mentioned at the very end of Memory Aether 1 whom I shall not mention in case you haven’t read it yet.
Alright, back to writing now. And you, back to reading all the things!
