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.

2014 Series
