I don't know if it's that I've been keeping myself primed (writing almost every day), that I've returned to writing some of my favorite characters, or if it's a combination of both, but this new book, Dick and Henry The Novel, it's coming out fast and it feels good. Really good. I'm loving every minute I'm spending writing it, and I haven't felt that in awhile.
My last book (currently untitled) took a lot of work to push out. It's going to need a revision or two before I'll be completely happy with it, but I think it's a good book that people who like moody sci-fi will enjoy. It's a dark dystopian story, about a world that's lost most of it's hope, and about a hero who doesn't have much left either. I don't know if it was the subject matter that made it hard, or if it was something else, but the novel didn't pour out of me the way Dick and Henry is. I guess they can't all be easy, but I'm happy that this one is.
Can't wait to finish the story and add it to the pantheon of my work, and then from there write the next one (this is the first full novel of Dick and Henry in a planned series of three or four books.) I have a broad plan for the series, one that I think is ambitious and meaningful for a sci-fi series, but I won't divulge it here, you'll have to wait for the titles to be written and published. But until then, you can always read the original short stories for free on Amazon.
