I’m currently about 14,000 words into the sequel for “A Place Outside The Wild.” It’s coming together well. I’m doing some interesting things with story structure. Hopefully, dear reader, you aren’t too attached to certain POV characters from the first book. Not that anything bad is necessarily going to happen – just that for some folks, it doesn’t make sense for them to be front and center as the action shifts. Still on track for release this fall, knock on wood.
I’ve also written about 2,000 words to the followup to “Fade”, though I’m trying to keep the focus on the Z-Day series at the moment. As I get ideas and plot points I’m jotting them down, but it’s also a nice way to work through writer’s block. If I get stuck on something with Z-Day I’ll work on Paxton for a bit. It’s a nice mental palate cleanser and I avoid days with little or no production.
