Behind the Book: Author Update 10
Spring 2023: Thoughts on the journey of writing a book.
I did it!
That has to be one of the best book updates any author could give. I had a goal of writing 10k words for Q2, but I was so productive this month, I ended up completing the project on June 1st!
Book 2 of The Dissenter Saga sits at about 145k words right now, and introduces a whole new world in this dystopian future. I made myself cry, made myself laugh, and made myself long for these characters to be more than just fictional people in a made-up future.
Is it weird to say that I gave myself a book hangover???
I took June 2nd off to celebrate a job well done, and now will be moving on to the next steps of the process.
Here's how things are looking:
Book 1 (Dissent) is in the hands of Tayler from Bailey and Bloom Ink. But she's not due to begin edits until July 1st.
Book 2 has been drafted. I'll be letting this book rest for about 2 weeks before I begin my first round of edits.
Book 3 is on deck! This is the final book in this series, and I really want to finish up this trilogy with a bang. While book 2 rests, I'll be in brainstorming mode to plot out this final installment of The Dissenter Saga.
The Plan: So, here we go! For the month of June, I'll be spending the first 2 weeks on brainstorming and plotting book 3. Then, about halfway through the month, I'll be switching gears and moving into editing book 2.
See you in a month!
Reminder: I've been sharing snippets of Dissent on my social media accounts, and revealing different themes that pop up throughout the story. Be sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Goodreads to catch little tastes of this upcoming dystopian romance.
