Projects: Past, Present, and Future
I know one hasn't seen much of me lately, but I have been pretty busy. There are two present projects I am attempting to complete.
The first one is in its' final stages. The final touches are getting placed on the book cover. The interior (the content) has been approved and has met specifications. It has been an ongoing battle in me whether this particular poetry collection would even become published. I've been writing poetry since I was eleven, and there will probably be lots of writing that won't make it to the grand stage. However, this collection isn't one of them. It is entitled Reflections of Soul. My goal is to release it on a specific date, for it marks the anniversary of a specific event. I know I am cutting it close, but I am determined to get it done.
The second one is also in the final stages. After much debate, I've decided to do a regular version as well as a deluxe version. The deluxe version will feature a short story that I've written, giving people a glimpse at my short story collection that I'm aiming to release at the end of next year. It is entitled Eclectic.
The amount of care I have put on these two present projects has inspired me to go back and do some tweaking on my two earlier projects, Spaded Truths and Private Pain. I will be revamping as well as re-releasing those works, either later this year or the early part of next year.
I've been reading a lot of wonderful short stories from Goodreads as well as Smashwords. It has given me a lot of inspiration. I do want to try my hand at writing some short stories. End of next year is the goal, and the working title is Continuous Drips.
Also, a few of my other writing personalities want their chances to shine. The one who's a bit more erotic, Synful Desire, will be coming out with her collection. The working title is Journeys.
The other personality that is a bit darker, Da'Kharta Rising, is working on a project entitled Dark Quill. Although it is novel like, it will read at times like poetry. There's no set date on when that one will be done. Like she would say, "When it's finished, it's finished."
I will give a more personal update in the near future, but I did want to peek in to keep everyone informed.
Have a wonderful day!
