Yep, that’s a question I often ask myself. Why? Because I have no clue what it is I am doing.
I often doubt myself when it comes to writing science fiction. I am more confident writing contemporary romance, yet I find it quite boring at times.
With science fiction, fantasy and paranormal, I can push the boundaries. No matter how bizarre a plot may sound, it wouldn’t matter because it’s beyond the ordinary. See what I did there? That’s my personal tagline.
Let’s talk about this first in the series for a minute.
I have no idea what I am doing. I try to write this series as I see it in my head. But does it make sense? If it makes sense to you then I have failed as a writer. Science fiction should not make sense at all. There is no reason to suspend disbelief in a sci-fi novel, because nothing in a space opera with blue colored aliens are true to life.
On the other hand, I want to know that what I send to my readers is entertaining to them. I want them to ask me for more. Will Slave do it? I honestly don’t know.
This first book was supposed to be a standalone novella as a way for my return to writing sci-fi before getting back to my original series which currently has only one book published. That’s my baby, the series I am looking forward to completing.
However, as fate would have it, that isn’t happening. Book two of ‘The Awakened Series’ was supposed to be released in October of 2019. It looks like that won’t happen as Slave has taken on a life of its own. Now there are three books and I see a fourth and maybe a fifth on the way. I may try to wing both series. Don’t ask me how I’ll do it… I don’t want to lie to you.
So what in the universe happens now?
Slave comes to you July 15
Queen comes to you August 26
Goddess will come to you sometime in September of early October.
Book 4 is yet to be determined.
Book 2 of The Awakened Series, may come late November or early December. Let’s hope I can pull it off this year.
