What Are You Writing Now?

It has been a while since I have spoken of what I am currently writing. As always, I am keeping busy and continuing to try to write almost every day.  In a few days, I will speak specifically about my book on writing essays that will be released soon. I am excited to say that this book is not self-published! I finally have a traditional publisher. I am not, in any way, discounting the value of my self-published work; instead, I am now claiming to be a hybrid writer, living in both worlds.

Additionally, I am working on the first draft of a fantasy novel that I hope to have finished by the end of July.  As soon as that is complete, I will begin working on another book on writing. Waiting patiently in line after that are the characters who will people a political thriller.

What about all of you? What are you working on? I hope you are enjoying writing and are being productive.

So, I ask again: what are you writing now?

Gallows Hill by Charles F. French is Now Available for pre-order!

Standard

GallowsHillFinalCoverEbook

My book, Gallows Hill: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 2, which continues the story of the Investigative Paranormal Society of Bethberg, PA, is now available for pre-order for Kindle on Amazon! It will be released on Kindle on February 14!

You can find my book by either clicking on this link Gallows Hill , or you can simply go to Amazon and enter Charles F. French.

This is book 2 in what is now a 4 part series, and the focus in this novel is on Sam Sadlowski, a retried homicide detective. Each book in the series is focused on one of the main characters.  If that is a bit confusing, because originally there were 3 members of this society, it is explained in this novel.

I am finishing the formatting for the print book, and I will let you know when it is ready.

I wish writers the discipline to keep writing and remember, do not worry about the quality of the first draft, just get it down! Happy Writing!

Another Wish to Writers: Happy Writing!

Standard

I have wished this thought before, but I want to offer it again to writers everywhere.

I simply wanted to wish all writers a good writing day–today and always.  I also hope you will have excellent production on whatever project you are tackling.

Never doubt your abilities, and work on getting your first drafts done. They will not be perfect, but you will then have material to revise.

Remember to try to write every day and read everyday.

Also remember to value your abilities, your vision, and your writing.

Happy Writing!

A First Draft Finished!

I have finally completed the first draft of Gallows Hill: The Investigative Paranormal Society Book 2.  It is certainly not close to being ready to be put out into the world, but this step was essential.

I also have a plan of action for the revisions, which is something I did not have in my first book. I simply rewrote and made changes both major and minor as I went along. I hope with my focused revision process, I can lower significantly the number of drafts I will need. I am also hoping that I can still have this book out in time for Halloween! We will see.

On to draft 2!

Writing Progess: An Update

Standard

It has been a long time since I have done a post about my writing progress, so I thought I would mention what I am doing. I self-published Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book I last October. Since then, I completed what I hope is a very good draft  — draft 4 — of my YA novel, The Ameriad: The Monastery of Knowledge, which I am in the process of submitting to agents and editors.

I am close to being done with draft 1 of Gallow’s Hill: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book II. My goal is to have the initial draft done this coming week, and then I will do heavily focused revisions, one after another over the next couple of months.  I hope to release it in October.

I also should be able to release a Spanish language version of Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book I  in October. And I am looking into an audible edition.

When I am done with these projects, then I will work on one of two books I have already drafted and need revisions. Plus, I have many other tales waiting their turns to be written.
