Well, Rogue fans, I’m about to be a published author. My book, 3 Gates of the Dead, will be coming out in October 2013. The date is to be announced soon along with a teaser at the storyline AND the cover.
This book has been a long, hard journey. It was published once, a long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away. That’s a story for another time. The beauty of it is, I got to rewrite this book, add a brand new story line, and add more mythology of the larger world I created for my characters.
However, the past five years have hammered home a brutal fact: Writers have to suffer.
It’s really inevitable. If you’ve met a writer, you’ll know. Every writer has a horror story, a sob story, a story that will drive you to drink. The thing is, none of us write to be a success. Not really. Sure, we have those dreams. We write to make sense of the world. We write to make sense of the voices in our heads. I’m convinced we’re all a bit nuts. Here’s to you, my fellow scribes for doing what we love and doing what drives us mad.
Stay tuned to Geek Goes Rogue for book news as it unfolds.What’s up next? My YA book Revolution of the Wolf, already been written, will most likely come out Summer 2014. Content? Can’t tell you or my agent will kill me. Really.
And, The Dark Bride, the sequel to 3 Gates of the Dead, has already been written. It needs some revisions, but will most likely have a Fall 2014 release date.
What will be I writing next? Ah, that is the fun part. I’ll be writing a younger kids book along the lines of Chronicles of Narnia, Wind in the Willows and A Wrinkle in Time. The story of how this project came together is pretty remarkable. When it will be released? Undetermined, but the writing starts tomorrow. I’m rather excited about it. You might find a hint somewhere in this blog post.
Along with blogging here, writing articles for Christianity Today, and The High Calling, things are very busy on the writing front.
On to my dream of Lego Sets from my books…..
