I finished writing <em>Ritual Dreams</em>on 1/18/2019. It is being prepped to go to the editor in February. Pre-orders are available at nearly all major ebook retailers.
I’d like to get back to having 2 or 3 months between finishing writing a book and its release, which I’ve managed with <em>Ritual Dreams</em>. I’d also like to get back to releasing 4 books a year. I will be taking the next 2 1/2 months to finish either <em>Goddess Investigations</em> or <em>Oh My Wizard </em>(working title for Nephilim Narrative #2). I think Avenging Reality (working title) will be my October release. Also, I need to get <em>The Dysfunctional expansion</em> written.
I actually finished <em>Ritual Dreams</em> earlier than I expected once January rolled around. Just to help understand some of the delay, it wasn’t all pain or emotional distress that caused the delay. I had to do a ton of research for it and then I had to double check nearly every killer chapter multiple times. The serial killer in Ritual has a serious mental illness and I wanted to make it as authentic as possible as well as discovering I didn’t know as much about the condition as I thought I did before I got started.
Also, there were huge patches X’d out as I went along. I was going to get into cult deprogramming as well as the mental illness the serial killer suffered from, but all of that made it entirely too involved and I eventually decided against deprogramming being a theme of the book. I can only force feed a reader so much information.
Onwards with the next book…
