The Novel Idea for 2014

Lately, I've been struggling to find a story that I love enough to spend the hours it takes to construct a novel out of. Well, today I was jotting down story ideas when I decided to go back to some of my short stories that are in progress (and have been for a while) and. . .BAM!

An idea hit me. I completely fell in love with one of my short story characters. It was one of my first attempts at short stories, and writing his origins story really connected me to him. Why not write a novel about him?

So, I am officially going to begin working on my first Car' Al novel! 

So far, all I really know about the story is it is going to take place far after the time that the short stories are written in. I am fairly certain that Car' Al will be in his forties, which is still fairly young for a rock troll. He's grown a lot as he's aged, and he's experienced much more than he had even in his first two stories. He'll have a human companion and some friend's that might be even more surprising.

All in all, don't get too excited about the prospects of the novel if you have purchased the short stories or downloaded the free version of New Beginning. I haven't started writing the novel yet, but I was so excited about the prospect of writing a Car' Al novel that I had to throw this out into the blogosphere and the many people that follow me online. I hope you enjoyed the update and are as excited about a Car' Al novel as I am!

A Bit of Reevaluation

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I figured I might as well throw out some updates. Anyone who has been following along should probably want to know that the first five short stories of the Colliding Empires have been released into a single file called "Volume 1."

Another thing that is probably the most notable is the fact that I haven't written a post since back in December. I've quite noticeably been derailed in both my blogging and my writing. I haven't done much writing at all. I apologize for that, but it is also one of my cycles that I definitely need to change.

The second, and most recent development, is that I've decided to remove myself from Twitter and delete my Facebook page. I felt that most of what was being put out to the internet on those media channels were shameless self-promotion. That isn't really what I wanted those to become. I don't like the idea of hitting people over the head with that message. And, to be qui…
