Big Aug+ update.
Didn’t have a proper update for July, so this will serve for that and Aug. July was an interesting time. Acts 1 and 2 have been finished and work is starting on Act 3. I slowed down a little moving into July because work picked up. That doesn’t happen often in my field, summers are slow, so that was nice. Also, I was approaching my 50th birthday, which led to much inner introspection on my part and took my mind off writing.
No fear I’m still moving forward, just missing a few of my self imposed deadlines. I wanted to have Act 3 handwritten by my birthday. That hasn’t happened. I’m pushing forward, act 3 is planned out more than any act I’ve ever done, it should go fast. Time and my own mind are the only enemies. I’m still shooting to get everything done by this year, but I may have to push it into next year. Some of this will be out of my control, since it will also depend on the availability of my editor. I’ll keep you posted.
Acts 1 and 2 are in the hands of my beta crew and I’m anxiously waiting for their input. Besides finding out more about our main hero Jax, we start to learn more about the world she lives in. The other characters begin to move to the forefront and their stories start to build also. I’m really happy that each character has a complete backstory that I’m working off of. We may not see those in total, but it influences who they are and what they bring to the story. Maybe someday I’ll do a few short stories to expand on the hints and nods that are starting to come out.
Warship Ares continues to do well. We’re over a year and half out and sales are small but consistent. Wish I could a few more reviews, hint-hint, but happy with the performance. I’m still ranked pretty high on Amazon for military scifi fiction. I like that.
Thanks for follwoing and sticking with me on this journey. As always you can find me on Twitter @skip_scherer. I’m semi active their and always willing to chat. Hope to talk to you soon. Till next time, watch your six.
