It’s been another busy month for me. I finished rewriting Part 2 of “The Gloaming” on the 17th—two weeks ahead of schedule. Since then, I’ve been trying to sort out the chaos of Part 3. Do you remember when you were a kid and your parents told you to clean your room, so you just shoved everything into the closet? Part 3 is like that closet. There are so many loose plot threads from previous parts that need to be tied up and, quite frankly, it’s a bit intimidating. That said, I have a plan to make it work. I just have to put it into action and hope I didn’t miss anything.
I’ve also been working on “The Astral Entity” lately, which is a novel about psychic spies. It’s been through 11 rewrites so far, and it’s finally turning into something I wouldn’t be embarrassed to release. It’s around 40% complete at the moment.
As for my adventures in flash fiction… I’ve written a few more pieces since my last blog post but none that are ready to be shared yet. I haven’t heard any news on the status of my competition entries either. The long lists were set to be released in late May, but it seems there’s been a delay. Given the high volume of entries, that’s entirely understandable.
I recently subscribed to Kindle Unlimited, and I have to say I’ve been enjoying it so far. Although KU might not help authors as much as buying their books directly, it allows me to support more authors than I would be able to otherwise. I’ve read 7 books so far this month, and I’m hoping to finish another 8 before my subscription runs out. Starting from around the 20th of June, I will be posting reviews for the books I read.
There’s a lot more I could talk about, but for now, I ought to get back to writing. See you next month!
