2016 Goals Review

Another year has come to an end. 2016 was a little crazy, but I’m very happy with the progress I’ve made so let’s take a look back at my goals from the beginning of last year.

  • Release Memory Blood 4 – Completed! Memory Blood Castle brought an end to the story that began in the first Memory Blood book and was my largest novel to date. While 50,000 words still isn’t a lot, the quality is something that I’m very pleased with and it and it’s paved the way for more books in the RMV Universe in the future such as Cronus Collection.
  • Release Creswood 3 – This was my first project for 2016 and it was completed successfully. Now I can say that I’ve published a mystery series and using what I’ve learned from Creswood I’ll be putting into Shadow Puppet Mysteries.
  • Planning RMV Mysteries #2 – This was finished about halfway into the year. The concept for Shadow Puppet Mysteries started development in January and by June I finished establishing the major components of the series and further refined these components before the release of Part 1 in October.
  • Release more additional stories – I completed this goal as well with releasing several new Alpha Fragments. Rather than limiting my ideas to novels, I greatly enjoyed exploring certain elements of the world and revealing new characters through free flash fiction stories.

Naturally, I’m more than pleased to say I accomplished all of my goals for 2016! This year was focused on writing and I wrote and published the best stories I’ve told thus far. Come back tomorrow to see my goals for 2017 and get an idea of what new content will debut over the next 12 months.

Thanks for all of your support thus far~

Beyond The Memory Blood

Memory Blood Castle has been released and now my second full series has come to its end. I remember having many things to say during the development of The Library Series, but with Memory Blood I’ve put everything I wanted to communicate into the books.

It’s difficult to say much as I’ve already said what I wanted to. It’s been a pleasure to write the books by using my experiences from writing previous stories and by developing new ways to create the best story that I can.

Memory Blood Saga will likely be delayed a bit as I would like to not only ensure there are no typos, but also to ensure that the book is of the highest quality. As Saga is a print book, once it’s published no further changes can be made. It’s important to me that it’s the best version of the series available so I’d like to ask for your patience in waiting for its release. Currently I am in the middle of making slight adjustments to the first book. Once the book is finished, I’ll upload any changes that I made to the first four books and release them as the 2016 Editions. The print book and the digital books will be identical and the series will reach its definitive version.

As I’ve said before, I’d like to do something similar to The Library Series but that would require a lot more work to bring them up to my standards so please forgive me if that takes a long time. As of now it is more of a dream project than one being actively worked on.

This October, RMV Mysteries’ second series debuts. I invite everyone to try to solve the mystery and to share their thoughts with me even if you don’t typically enjoy mysteries. The entirety of the series will be available for free and will be published over the next year or two.

Beyond that, a new novel will debut at the end of 2017. The stage is that vast world containing the continent of Zekkyn and many more. The year is 1187 according to the Imperial Calendar. One year after the Zoth Incident.

Thank you once more to everyone for your support thus far.

 

Memory Blood Finale

The fourth and last book in the Memory Blood story, Memory Blood Castle, has been completed. The final version has been uploaded to Amazon and will arrive on August 12th as promised. This is both the longest book in the series and the longest book that I’ve ever written, so please look forward to it!

For those who would like to enjoy the complete series in one printed volume, Memory Blood Saga will be released this August as well. Containing 350+ pages and 146,000 words, this book will be available for $14.95. After the book is proofed, I’ll be able to announce the release date.
