There’s so many things going on right now. It’s an exciting time! The official D’mok Revival board game is moving forward. The second novelette is being edited by Arlene and Glenn Clovis is working on yet another amazing cover.
I’ve been making slow progress on restructuring the fourth manuscript. It’s always an interesting challenge to update an existing work based on all the edits and changes that happened to the manuscripts before it.
I wasn’t going to announce this just yet, but I alluded to how the series is going to continue to go strong well after the first trilogy.
The fact is, while trying (note: TRYING) to stay focused on book #4 in D’mok Revival’s main lineage, the first book in the first spin-off has been talking to me. By talking to me I mean daily, thoughts, little movie sequences playing in my head. It’s great stuff, and very existing. I continue to write notes and file it away for later. Yet something keeps drawing me back that book instead of #4…
I’m a firm believer in listening to your creativity. It ebbs and flows as it wants to–never as you want or when you want. So if it’s doing its thing–LET IT–GO WITH IT!
So, I sat down and wrote 14 pages this morning… the entire first chapter. This builds on the prolog I wrote earlier in the week.
The series is called Weun Academy. The working subtitle, for the moment is: Boy with the green eyes. For those that have followed the series, you know exactly who this is… 😉
If there’s a clear high-concept model I’d say it’s a hybrid of Starship Troopers, X-Men, and Harry Potter. Clearly there’s still Japanese Anime inspirations, and it’s within the D’mok Revival literary universe.
This side trilogy isn’t just a “nice to know” aspect, it actually reveals a very important dimension about how the abilities are impacting the alien community… And sets the stage for D’abar…
Okay, that’s all I’m saying for now… Teaser? Yes. It’s fun to share. I get excited about these things… And inspired!!!
