On the last stretch of the process to get Until She Sings into its final stages and available. More short fiction.
So the work gets done but it’s bringing it to a paying audience and getting out to magazines and anthologies. My ambitions run silent and deep.
I’m happy with things but also unsatisfied with remaining a dilettante or a well meaning amateur. Once this work gets out, you’ll be able to buy it and the newer titles are reflective of my growth and craft.
My forthcoming book Until She Sings represents a lot of things all together and I thought I would pop up and talk about my writing.
Part of being productive is being organised and not just generating ideas but fleshing them out into finished work. My process has changed in line with experience and perspective, so there’s less guesswork and more content produced.
I’ve always been prolific and I’m curating the work to make available for sale because I figure if someone likes one thing of mine then having more work available makes sense.
There are more stages now because it’s all sourced in the idea of selling my writing, so I have to consider cover art, descriptive copy and brand marketing which are important to keep things interesting.
First drafts now are written to outline, in longhand and then edited as they get typed up. I have other books coming but I’m taking things with more seriousness.
If you’ve enjoyed my writing then you’ll be able to buy it and it represents the best possible art I can make.
I hope you will be part of this with me.
I’ve been working on this. It’s coming soon and I’m excited to share it with you all.
UNTIL SHE SINGS
You cannot stay silent if you want to be heard.
Caitlin Ross, a young singer-songwriter, makes her debut at an open mic night playing and singing her own songs for the first time. Struggling in her relationship with her once, nearly famous boyfriend Luke, Caitlin’s performance lends a new spotlight for him to pirate. But Caitlin has grown weary of life in Luke’s shadow.
When a handsome stranger, Daniel, introduces himself after her set, the attraction is immediate and all consuming. His pursuit quickly throws Luke’s failings as a partner into stark relief. And she quickly finds herself caught between the past and the future, chained to the former
I’ve been setting up 51R which turned out to be a larger piece of work than expected.
It is much better and I am excited to share some of it with you in the near future.
There’s been some deep work with the writing and it’s been good so far. It’s a time of transition, which is reflected in the work I am doing.
Change is coming, and I couldn’t be happier.
