Writing Update: Fun Facts

Well, I did it.

I’ve finished the 2nd draft of the sequel to Daylight Hours!

This is where all of the grueling editing, proofreading, editing, and more proofreading comes in.

Last year I self-published Daylight Hours and now it’s time to build the paperback and ebook editions of the second book in the series. My writing style has come a long way in the past year and it was a lot of fun writing a sequel. Kris Grant is a character I enjoy writing as and for a writer, that’s one of the greatest feelings in the world. It’s always a good thing when your work doesn’t feel like work.

I don’t want to give too much information on the second book just yet, because the second draft is far from what the finished book will look like. I will say this though. If you read the first book and enjoyed Kris Grant’s sarcasm and whit, then you’re going to appreciate the second book. I’m self-publishing the Kris Grant novels. This may be the only time in my life when I have complete creative control without an editor or a publisher stifling my writings and editing me to appeal to the masses. I wrote the second book knowing that I wasn’t going to hold anything back and it brings positive elements to the novel and gives me a freedom that I think shows through the writing.

Self-publishing a novel is one of the most stressful, demanding, time-consuming, exhausting work that I’ve ever done and I love every frustrating minute of it.

Kris Grant will be returning in a whole new novel Summer 2012.
