Book 2

Alright Everyone,
I might be premature in putting this out there, but I feel like I want to give you all an update on how Book 2 in the Cobbogoth series is coming.  So far it's coming along much better than I expected.  After having spent 5 years writing the first book, that's not really saying much.  But, I suppose Cobbogoth was much more about learning how to write a book, and now that I've got that under my belt, things are moving along a lot faster and smoother than I anticipated. 
That being said, KinStone Publishing is still planning on a late 2013 release, because all of the design work and everything still has to happen, which takes time.  But, things are looking good otherwise. 

I guess I'm mostly relieved, because I wasn't sure how quickly I was going to be able to write Book 2 on account of the fact that I've never written a second book in a series.  However, what I'm finding is that part of the reason Cobbogoth took so long to write, is because I had to make my world fit in our world and with our world's rules in order to make it believable.  Now that I'm in New Cobbogoth, I get to make up the rules. That's very liberating. 

Unfortunately, hiccups can still happen along the way.  For instance, I could get finished writing this first draft and my good friends (who know that I love them enough that they can tell me the truth) might inform me that what I thought was a work of genius when I was the only person reading it, is, in fact, complete rubbish.  That would probably set me back a bit.  But since I run everything by my husband--who bores easily when I read to him and so far has been pretty excited about what I've been reading him--I think we're in good shape.

Seriously though, I can't wait to introduce you all to the world of New Cobbogoth! Once I've completed the first draft, I'm fairly certain I can reveal Book 2's title to you all, which will thrill me to no end. 

That said, what are all you aspiring writers working on right now?  Post a link to your blog and I'd love to come check it out.  It'll give me something to look forward to during my writing breaks!  :)


  1. It sounds like things are going well!
    I must admit to some excited squealing while reading this. :)
    I hope everything continues to run smoothly for you!

  2. "I must admit to some excited squealing"

    I laughed out loud at that part, Erisnyx! I'll admit that I've been doing a bit of excited squealing myself. Thanks for checking in!

  3. Cobbogoth was a great read and left wanting to know what happens next... thanks for maing it a free read on kindle! I will definitely be looking for the next book.

  4. Roslyn, I'm so glad you liked Cobbogoth! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. When my aunt gave me a signed copy of Cobbogoth, I set it on the shelf and didn't pick it for a while. But when I did, I loved it. It was the greatest story I have read since Hex Hall. You are a wonderfully talented author.

    1. Thank you so much, Nyxsedi! I'm so glad you liked it. Keep an eye out for Book 2, The Lemorian Crest. It will be out next month. :-)
