    Welcome to the big March Update! Please follow me on Twitter @skip_scherer for more day-to-day stuff.

    Act 2 is nearly done. Ran into a few technical problems with one chapter and that slowed me down a bit. Now I’m on the last 2 chapters and this ending has been in my head since I started the book that it will all be easy writing. For those that have followed me for a while, I write too waypoints, I don’t always know that path to get there, but once I’m there, I know the ending.

    Act 3 is coming up. This whole act is one big waypoint – haha. In my head I’ve already worked through every chapter, every big moment, and every small moment. There are scenes in this chapter that I knew were coming back when I started writing book one. I’m so excited. Thier is one more book after this, the finial to this trilogy, but this is where it all comes together, this is the grandiose scene that forges the story. I’m still on track to finish and get this book out this year! I hope you’re excited as I am!

    Till next time!

  • February 2022

    One month into the New Year and things are going good so far. My regular business is busy, which cuts into my writing time a little, but stable. Stable is good. My progress for Act 2 is on track so far and I will be finishing it up by the end of February. The wonderful thing about approaching the end of an act is the writing is easier. I often know how things end and have been working them over in my head multiple times while I write the other parts.

    Act 3 should be the fastest one yet. Both in terms of writing it and the pace of the story. The whole last act has been in my head since starting book 2. It’s a major waypoint of the story, which catapults us into book 3. It’s a huge blockbuster of an ending that moves all the characters into place, both physically and mentally, for the finial book. Surprises aplenty, and if I can indulge in a little hyperbole, some characters will be changed forever!

    I’m dedicated to getting this book out this year. Thanks for hanging with me, I think you’re going to enjoy what’s coming.

    As always catch me on Twitter for smaller updates @skip_scherer. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Short and sweet for the first update for 2022, hopefully I’ll have something a little bigger by Feb. Pushing hard to finish Act 2 on Book 2. Once that’s done, I should be able to finalize how long Act 3 will take. I turn 50 this year (July) and I want to finish book 2 by/before then.

    It’s going to be an exciting year!

    Welcome to my big monthly update. Reminder you can always follow me on Twitter for faster more frequent updates – @skip_scherer. I look forward to hearing from you!

    This last Thanksgiving marked the one-year mark since I released my first book Warship Ares! I’m happy to say the book continues to do well. While not burning up the sales charts, it does continue to sell, and I continue to get great feedback on it. That feedback really pushes me forward on writing the next book!

    My hope was to get the second book out in about a year’s time, that sadly just isn’t going to happen. I’m flying through the second act at this point, but not fast enough to finish it before the end of the year. The second act is the biggest act of this book and it’s just taking time to get it done. The last act is a fast and furious one that really pumps up the action but will also be the shortest act of the book. So, the plans are there, the path ahead is clear and book 2 will be coming in 2022.

    Some small teasers on what is to come:

    • Gaia 1st runs a lot deeper than anyone thought.
    • Some of our supporting cast have secrets… and more secrets.
    • Just where are the Screech anyways?

    I hope you are as intrigued to read it as I am to write it! Hang in there 2022 is going to be a blockbuster!

    Happy Holidays!
