Writing Update: January 2014 W4 Edition

The final progress report of this kind for January has arrived. By now everyone should know what’s coming next week, but if you don’t please read on!

The Orin Chronicles

Krakken (Volume 8): Writing – 57% complete
Volumes 9-10: Concept Phase
Volumes 11-13: Not in active development

Notes: I’ve had a lot of work to do this week so I wasn’t able to write very much. For the remainder of January I have a ton of work to do so the progress may not change too much for next week either, but I’m glad I was able to make decent progress this week and I should be able to do the same next week as well.

The Academy Series

Second Volume: Not in active development, writing 35% complete

Notes: —

2014 Series

Logo: Completed!
Book One: Concept Phase. Writing – 1.5% complete

Notes: With the logo complete, the big reveal of the title of the series is on schedule for next Friday, January 31st. Thanks to the way the logo was created I have a few options of how I can present it and I’m still considering my options as of right now. In concept-forming news, I’m on schedule with my goals for this month and I might be able to talk a little bit about that next week once the series is properly revealed. Then again, not much is going to be said so there are even more reveals planned for next month and beyond. However, I hope what I present one week from today will be sufficient enough for an initial reveal!

Writing Update: January 2014 W3 Edition

For this week, I’ll be following the same format for last week. If you’re a fan of the more detailed Writing Updates there will be plenty of those in the future, but if I wrote one of those every week I’d have to start giving away all the details about what I’m writing and that wouldn’t be any fun at all.

The Academy Series

Second Volume: Not in active development, writing 35% complete

Notes: No news on this front just yet.

2014 Series

Logo: Rough sketch approved. Final product in development.
Book One: Concept Phase. Writing – 1.5% complete

Notes: With a decision I made this week, I’d probably say that the structure of the series has now been fully decided. Writing hasn’t really begun just yet so the percentage might not change very much over the coming weeks, but we’re getting closer to the big reveal which is now 2 weeks away!

Writing Update: January 2014 W2 Edition

The Friday Updates for 2014 have officially begun! Even though today is Sunday so it’s about two days late…

As promised, I’d like to provide updates every Friday about the projects I’m working on as well as other things. While a lot of these updates are planned to be reveals for my upcoming series, the name of which will finally be revealed on January 31st, a good number of them will also be Writing Updates. Today I’ll be quickly updating everyone on the status of The Orin Chronicles, The Academy Series,  and my next series.

The Orin Chronicles

Krakken (Volume 8): Writing – 35% complete
Volumes 9-10: Concept Phase
Volumes 11-13: Not in active development

Notes: The name for Volume 8 has been revealed! The writing has been going smoothly and I suspect Volumes 8-10 will be released within the first half of 2014.

The Academy Series

Second Volume: Not in active development, writing 35% complete

Notes: The major delay with Second Volume has been the complicated problems I set up for the characters. In order for me to continue writing I have to come up with the solutions to these problems so I think it’s likely that Second Volume won’t be released until late 2014. I’ve set up a bigger challenge for myself than I had expected to, but I think it’s definitely going to be a rewarding experience.
