What's in store for 2014

2014 Plans of an author:-

*Release Book 4 in the Aarabassa World fantasy series:
This is three quarters completed. I am now editing and once that's done, I'll think of an ending and then edit the book again. Then will come the title and finally the cover and publication.

*Re-edit Books 1, 2 & 3
I constantly do this anyway, to iron out flaws ie spelling, speech, grammar etc.

 Presently about quarter of the way through Book 1. The changes are not enough to have to change the 'Edition Number' as there are no changes to plot. As an impoverished artiste who unfortunately cannot afford an editor, I find myself constantly improving the published editions. Each time I do it there are less and less flaws. it will be worth as they are almost perfect.

*Release an omnibus edition of Books 1, 2 & 3

The original plan was to do a thick book. I then re-planned it into three smaller books as I am a new author and readers would be more willing to read a smaller version to see if they like my writing style. So by creating an Omnibus I am almost achieving my original goal.

*Start writing Book 5
Not even set the seed yet. Need to see how Book 4 ends. My writing seems to be getting 'darker' so I suspect nasty things will be occurring.

*Try and get involved in another anthology.

It made such a refreshing change to complete a story in just a few thousand words. I thoroughly  enjoyed the challenge. It does stop me writing on my fantasy series for a while but I also believe it helps to improve writing skills.

*Hope that this list grows.

I am toying with the idea of attempting a stand alone novel of either a crime or romance. Either will be a great challenge for me as truly am an epic fantasy writer. If this is achievable I may possibly use a pseudonym to separate the genre writing.

Well that's my Action Plan for the year. I hope it's achievable.
