I haven't posted in a few weeks, but I've been busy working on Book 10 of Forgotten Worlds. It is going, although it's been slow for a while. For me, switching gears into writing after all the editing I did upon finishing book 9 can be a little difficult, but I have also been a bit anemic. I'm working on that though.
This series is growing with every book. I can say that I am 1/3 done writing the series at this point. I expect to finish around 25 books with all the ideas I have for adventures and what still needs to happen. I'd like to know what readers expect or what subplots should be explored more fully. I'm putting this together based on my imagination and expectations, but I want to satisfy readers too. If you have noticed something that you particular would like to see more of or have some ideas, I welcome those.

In the meantime, I'll keep writing what I think the story needs.
And as far as Book 10 goes, I'm debating on titles already. I am over 7,000 words into it, so I'm not quite far enough to know if my title ideas truly fit, but I do have an idea of the overall story. It's the little things that come out while writing that can make or break a title.
With luck, I can finish this in February and then plan for the release of RACING THE ORAST BELT in March. I won't put that up for pre-order until I'm done with the first draft of book 10. No more squeezing last minute edits to finish like I did this past year. Of course, if the writing picks up and I really get going at a fast pace, I could have the next book out sooner. Only time will tell.
I hope you are all staying healthy and staying happy. Live not in fear nor fear to live.
