|The Kinetic - first draft of many|
The Kinetic: First draft
Well, a few months later than expected I have finally finished the first draft of The Kinetic. It's been a tough slog in places to be honest, which hasn't been helped by me having a busier year than I originally anticipated - one that included a prolonged, and pretty hectic, house move. But with the first draft finally here, I suppose it's time for a quick update on what's going on.
Well now that the first draft has been finished, I'll get my team of proofreaders on the case (my wife and my parents). After they've given me their feedback on what works and what doesn't, I will then go through and make any required changes.
After a couple of weeks, I'll then go through the manuscript at least another two or three times to make sure I've caught any typos or grammatical errors (hopefully I'll do this to a reasonable standard, although this can sometimes be an ongoing process as I have found out with Kinesis, but more on that below).
|The Kinetic: coming soon|
In other Kinesis related news, I am currently re-editing the first book in the series as I have recently gone through it again and found a number of typos, grammatical errors and just general poor writing that I really want to rectify. I'm confident that this - 5th edition of the book - will be the final edition for the foreseeable future.
Finally, I'll just mention quickly of what my plans are with future books. Since I'm fully Kinesis-ed (that's a tough one) out, I doubt I will begin work on the final book in the series for a while. I've got a few ideas on how the conclusion to the trilogy will go but I have a lot of plot to work out yet.
So with that final book on the back-burner for a few months, I've got a few ideas for stories that I'm going to work on first. Some will be short stories, others novellas, and I even have ideas for a novel or two in the old noggin so check back here, or my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/authorethanspier) for up-to-date news.
Thanks for reading, and all your patience in waiting for this long overdue sequel!
