The More Things Change...
Been a while. The ol' blog has remained dusty for a few months but I am slowly crawling back to the short ramblings and blatant self-promotion inherent in the medium. Cheers.
Carving out time to write these past few months has been challenging but it has been happening. Doing some freelance editing to add to the kitty, while my main writing time has been focused on some major, major re-writes to a finished piece: the final final draft. That's exciting, and I am ready to get it put behind me so I can get back to my two upcoming series.
Series one, book one entitled, Swill, is about a man desperately trying to keep his daughter alive. Drug-fueled robots have wiped humanity out in their hive-minded obsession with manufacturing and taking their highly addictive grease-based drug, Swill. Peter, his daughter, Melody, and a small group of survivors, are fighting their way out of Philadelphia on their way to the New Jersey Harbor and, hopefully, on a big boat to the Caribbean. This story is planned as a duology.
Series Two is a multi-book epic, The Brothers Blood. This is the story of Omar and Theodore Blood, enforcers for a notoriously eccentric and reclusive criminal organization. The brothers love girls, weed, talking trash, and their mother. They've always followed their father's directive: don't kill, but don't be afraid to break a few bones if duty calls. Things get more complicated when their employer asks them to steal an ancient map from a collection in Berkeley, California. Soon, Omar and Theo find themselves deep in a world they never knew existed. This is planned as a six book series, containing both novels and novellas.
I have a finished first draft of book one of The Brothers Blood, and I am about 60% done with the first draft of Swill. I will keep updating the status as I move forward.
Besides writing, this is what I have been doing.
