|These are the hands of James Davis' fate.|
It's been some time since I have written anything new for James. In the months since finishing my draft of The Hero of Hyla, it has mostly been editing and incorporating comments from beta readers. I've heard a lot of positive feedback on that front and I'm very pleased for that. Now the ball is in my court to begin work on a cover and work needs to begin on converting the manuscript into XML so that I can publish an eBook. The technical side of it was a little daunting and I fell away from the project for a short while.
I've enjoyed the break, which gave me some time to play WoW with my wife and reflect on my other creative writing ideas. As I push through the first story arch of my new WoW Adventures, I plan to continue toward publishing my first novel and gearing up to write my second novel.
That being said...
I totally wrote two draft chapters of my new novel tonight!
I can't really talk about what I'm working on just yet, mostly because I haven't even finished the first entry's road to being published, but I am very excited for what I have laid out for the next novel. James Davis is a fun character and I'm hoping that as my story telling continues to improve, the development of his character will be easier to portray.
A lot of the characters are introduced in The Hero of Hyla. This new entry will allow me to take those characters and really dive into who they are, why they have become the men and women we see in the story, and push them toward their next big adventure.
For now, though... I should sleep.
