Today I finished second edits on Wardens of the Guild 2: All That Shimmers… and got them back to the amazing Rebecca B at pride.
the second time around I only had to address three things which was good… first time around I ended up adding nearly or just over 3K to the story line. and there seemed to be so much red… mainly because of overused words… in this book it was (was/ as he/ just). and the other thing is I forgot descriptions again.
I’ve been told the story is off for final line edits next… wish me luck.

Even though there is only a small amount of books here it doesn’t mean that this will be the end of my time with Pride. It just means once I get to the end of the lists for this publisher I’ll be able to think about submitting different stories and series. there will still be 3 more in The Connelly Chronicles, and 4 more in the Destiny House series—which is a spin off from The Connelly Chronicles.

I’m lucky my publishers have all been wonderful & understanding over my train wreck of a 2016.
Destiny House (formally House of Destiny): This will be a spin off series I’m starting which will be coming this year (6 books in all). In essence it’s a spin off from my The Connelly Chronicles series. The characters from TCC won’t be main characters, but will be floating around in the background stories. I want to tell the stories of the young men who come to reside at the refuge GG set up.
The Connelly Chronicles: I love this series and can’t wait to start writing it again. Originally I had planned 5 books, but in my year away I came up with a story for one last book, so now there will be 6 I’ll have this whole series finished by the end of 2018 because I want to not let too much time to pass between each writing. #3 Dan & Nate, #4 Declan & Sean, #5 Jamie & Bear, #6 Ben & ??? (I’m still thinking).
Wardens of the Guild: I’m still figuring out where I’m heading with this series. I have so many ideas, but not sure which direction I should take to get to my end place. I know #2 is about Eric & Murtagh, but after that I’m still a little hazy.
I have had a busy and somewhat frustrating start to 2017. I’m glad the new year is giving me a fresh start. I have determined what I can realistically work on writing wise this year… = 6K 5 days a week… I need the other 2 days for edits and running errands. Any-hoo this is what I’m going to be working on (written in no particular order).
