Update on the current book and future books in series

Hey everyone!

It has been awhile since I have done a blog post (exactly a month, not intentional!) When I began this series I had a vision with 5 books and what events will happen in each book. A couple of weeks ago while working on the current book I realized that I will have to do one of two things. Write a short story between books 2 and 3 or extend the series another full book. After a lot of thinking I realized that having a full book wasn’t needed, just a short story between books 2 and 3. I can’t give reasons why due to spoilers, but there are some things that need to happen after book 2 and book 3 is going to have a significant time jump.

Now I could in theory fit the contents of the shorty story into book 3, yet after I weighed the pros and cons I realized that I didn’t want to keep doing flash backs. It’s one of the tougher things I have found on writing is between each book I want to have time jumps, but for some plot points it wouldn’t make sense or be annoying as a reader to not know what happened to a certain character in those 6 months after the ending of the previous book. Luckily this isn’t a problem for book 2. There will be some time jumps and I am fine with some, but if I did the same thing to book 3, I am pretty sure half the book would be jumping between the past and present. I could change my mind, I am still on book 2 after all and have a ways to go, but thought I would write my thoughts on it.

Other then that there isn’t too much to add to this. Just doing the joys of the first draft, working and enjoying the nice weather. I am still hoping to get the first chapter out to the public by the end of the year or early next year. I won’t say it’s a 100% thing and I will do my best to make it happen!

Thanks for reading and I will try to update in 2-3 weeks instead of 4-5!
