2017 Schedule – Upcoming Fantasy and Sci-Fi Books

Well, there’s some good news – last night I finished the first draft of RENOVO; Symbiosis! Of course, it’s far from the finished article. I need to go through and make changes before it can go to my editor. But it’s just about done, and that means I’ll soon have new Dr. Galliance adventures to share.

But, my writing doesn’t stop and today I’ve picked up The Forgotten Lands and jumping into Lyllia’s story. This lesbian princess wants to go fight trolls and shadow-stalkers in the Northern Realm, so that’s what I’m going to let her do!

I thought I’d outline my writing schedule for the year to come, as much for myself as anyone. Putting it to paper, committing it to blog helps my brain realise it HAS to be done. So, these are the plans (they may change)!

**Winter 2017 – Jan – March

RENOVO Symbiosis
Gathin Chronicles – The Forgotten Lands

**Spring 2017 – April – June

RENOVO – Book 4
Gathin Chronicles – Book 2 (Title TBC)

**Summer 2017 – July – Sep

Gathin Chronicles – Book 3 (Title TBC)

**Autumn 2017 – Oct – Dec

CRYO – Enemy of Earth

For those of you on Facebook, you’ll note one small change already in that the fourth RENOVO installment is delayed until spring. This is simply because I need time for ideas to percolate. I only finished Symbiosis yesterday and will edit in conjunction of writing the first Gathin Chronicles. This way I can stay fresh and eager to each book, instead of feeling I’m simply churning out stories.

So, six books planned for this year. There’s a cover reveal to come in the next week or so, and then Symbiosis should be out at the start of February. 😀

Hemlock Grove Season 2 Trailer

Okay, so a few weeks I ago I posted that the fantastic Netflix series, ‘Hemlock Grove’ was soon to make a return. Now, with only very little time until there’s a WHOLE SEASON to watch again (I LOVE how Netflix does that), I’ve just found this season 2 trailer. I’m thrilled to see that many of the cast are back – despite the ending of Season 1.  One of the reasons I like this season so much is because it’s just plain weird. These are fantasy creatures and characters we’ve seen so many times before but they’ve been given brand new life – an important step seeing that True Blood’s about to finish (though, judging on the opening episode for the last season, it’s about time for Sookie and those vamps to say goodbye – it was pretty poor). Watching these series really inspires me to write new and interesting takes on traditional themes – something I think is important for writers to do so we’re not rehashing the same thing repeatedly.

So, without further ado, here’s the new footage for Hemlock. You’ll see it’s pretty extreme and wacky – puuuurfect, in my opinion! Netflix really do seem to be breaking boundaries with their series investment, and with news they’re about to start developing films, I can’t wait to see what comes next!
