The second Book

Postby Winterhawk99 » Fri Nov 24, 2017 10:36 pm

I'm slowly working on the second book. I'll give updates from time to time on it. Right now I have only one chapter finished and am working on the overall plot outline.

Ok, So I tore up the first chapter and re-wrote it. the last section is sort of long so I'll split it into the second chapter. I do have some parameters to work with.

I want to both slow the book down from the first one in some aspects and speed it up at the same time.

I want to slow it down in the aspect of the characters themselves to show more depth to them. Especially Randyl, Kioshi and Miwa. So less action packed more mental stuff in this book. At least that's the goal.

I want to speed the time frame up by alot. The first book takes place over a year and a half. The second will end about 30-40 days after the first ends.

One of the challenges I am facing at the moment is that I boxed myself into a corner with Fade becoming the avatar of Tiamat. That leaves the greater nations with limited options. So I'm considering what to do with Ryuu's faction that wants to go deeper into the hells. I'm also considering what Glasya is going to do about the situation.

I finished the second section of the second chapter. The book is solidifying in my mind now and I have a definite plan for the chapters. Things will go much faster now. I'll keep everyone updated.

Finished chapter 2, at 22,000 words. I'll carefully go over both chapters in the next few days. Then I will start on chapter 3 which is well placed out in the outline. :)

Well its the books 6 month anniversary and so many views. Thanks, everyone I really hope everyone liked the book. I'm on chapter 3 of the next book. Yes, I know its going slow but I have a lot of other things going on right now. I'm writing a thousand words here and there. After finishing the section I'm on. Things should go faster. The section I'm on is important to the book and I can change the whole thing by what happens here so I'm taking my time :).
I'll update again when chapter 3 is completed.

Working on chapter 3 section two. I changed it significantly from the outline coming up with a better idea for it. The ideas within the book are joining together nicely now. I've set up some things for the third and final book Children of Hell: Resolution. and have penned some ideas for the next series Bridges. It's still going slowly. much more than the first book to which I wrote in 13 months. I'm hoping everyone will enjoy the second book much more because I am taking the time to review everything before I even start to edit it. Make it better in certain ways. I'll update again after chapter 3 is complete.

I'm almost finished with chapter 3. As I did with the first book I'll post a section (this time on here instead of facebook) Its a bit long for a section and doesn't give away any subplots in the book but is interesting and gives you a feel for the book itself. Remember I may edit much of it before releasing the book so its in its raw unedited form.

This book due to the minor characters in the book is a bit more raw and adult oriented than the first book. Just letting everyone know. Dealing with some tough subjects.

Ok, So finally finished chapter 3. at this point im close to 37,000 words if the trend continues it will be about the same length as the first book. maybe shorter after editing. I have chapter 4 fully outlined so I'm hoping 4 will go faster then 3 did. I have no tentative date yet for finishing due to an increase in other work. I will update again halfway through chapter 4 I think.
