WIP it Up: August 2023 Update

Monthly updates on drafting new books.

New Adult Romance author's June update on books in progress

1. WIP: Dissent, Book 1 of The Dissenter Saga

Stage: In Editing

Progress: Tayler from Bailey and Bloom Ink finished her first round of edits. Initial feedback was great, and I have already worked through her suggestions and resubmitted the book back to her for the final round of editing. She hopes to be done by August 20th.

2. WIP: Book 2 of The Dissenter Saga

Stage: In Editing

Progress: Betas already have their hands on this book. They both hope to be done with their read-through by August 31st.

3. WIP: Book 3 of The Dissenter Saga

Stage: Drafting

Progress: This WIP is cruising! After some initial struggles with the direction the story had taken, I went back to the beginning and did some initial edits. I don't normally edit a book until I'm done with the 1st draft, but I just couldn't keep going with the draft the way it was. Doubling back cost me some time and led to the deletion of almost 25k words! It pained my heart to do it, but I think it was for the better in the long run. Since doing that, the story has been coming together more smoothly. Currently I'm at about 61k words, putting me at about 51% of the way through this final installment of The Dissenter Saga.

4. WIP: Book 1 of SLC Trilogy

Stage: Brainstorming/On Hold

Progress: As excited as I am about the this next book, I'm having to put this project on hold for now. I'm still jotting down ideas as they come, but my efforts have double downed on completing The Dissenter Saga. I do think, however, that after I've got the TDS trilogy on its way, this will probably be my next series.

Stay tuned for more updates!
