Plans for 2019

Hi,

haven’t posted anything in a while because I don’t want this blog to become a place where I spam non-essential updates, but with the year coming to a close and all, I wanted to share a bit of my plans - writing-wise - for 2019.

First up is a small project that will take up a lot of my time and which I can’t and won’t talk about right now. If everything goes the way it should that project will keep me busy in Q1 and Q4 so there is that.

Second up, I plan to get an “Ultimate Edition” of “The Foreign Effect” out by the end of 2019. My main reasoning for that is, to get away from Lulu and switch over to Amazon, but it is also to get rid of some of the mistakes and querks “The Foreign Effect” has that annoy me to this day. Since it is kind of a dickmove to “just” re-release a novella by itself this “Ultimate Edition” will also contain a different ending to the plot and a couple of dark sci-fi themed short stories. And, big news, this “Ultimate Edition” will ALSO be released as eBook.

For almost a year now I have been wirting short story to novella sized adventures for a cast of characters in a more traditional sci-fi setting as well. Longterm my goal is to get this collection to a point that I can start preping it for a 2020 release.

Apart from these projects I will always obviously work on short stories (new years resolution is to get one of these published somewhere) and whatever else comes up. I don’t like to plan away all of my writing time since I a) learned in 2018 that I don’t write well under pressure, and b) the best ideas are the ones that sneak up on you. It would be a shame if a great idea for a book strikes me and I don’t have the time to actually write it down.

So yeah, probably not the update you wanted, as you will not get new material before end of 2019. I might drop a short story or two on this blog thingy over the year though to keep you guys fed.

All of you reading this, I hope you’ll have a kickass 2019! Thanks for the support!
