My Writing: 2015

2015Every year I like to look back and see what happened, and look forward to what the new year will hold. So here’s a look at 2014 and a sneak peak at my plans for 2015.

2014 brought a lot changes, starting off with the sale of Marcher Lord Press. My publisher underwent a change in ownership and name. It’s different now, but not bad. I am looking forward to working more with Enclave Publishing in 2015.

A year ago I was finishing the last book in the Follower of the Word series. Heir of Hope took me almost a year to write, but it was a year well spent. I can’t wait to share with you the conclusion to Rowen, Lore, Caleb, and Nierne’s journey. Right now the projected release date is March 23rd.

On that note, I hope to reveal the new covers that were commissioned for the Follower of the Word series sometime this month. They are amazing, if I do say so myself ;). So be watching for a cover reveal!

I am now working on a new series. It is a Victorian steampunk (which is a definite change from fantasy). Steampunk is a genre that can be set in either a Victorian or western time period and usually involves steam-powered machinery rather than advance technology.

I’m about a third of the way through the rough draft of the first book, Tainted. I forgot how hard rough drafts are (especially when starting a new series), but I am also enjoying the new characters and settings. Right now the series is under consideration by a publisher, but I don’t know yet if it will be acquired. In either case, I plan on finishing this series :).

So that’s what 2015 is shaping up to look like for my writing, and what an exciting year it looks to be!

    1. Hi Lisa 🙂
      I had the idea for this story years ago, but while sitting in on one of Jeff Gerke’s classes, he encouraged us to take our story and consider placing it in a different genre or time period. I suddenly saw this story in a Victorian time period, but not in our history. I had heard about steampunk and did some research into the genre and realized this was where I wanted to place this story.

      I also love history, but was intimidated with the idea of getting all the details correct for a historical. Steampunk lets me combine my love for this time period, but also lets me add my own ideas and flavor.

  1. Oh my goodness I’m so excited for the cover reveal AND your new steampunk series!! I have yet to read a steampunk novel, but it seems like something I am interested in!

  2. Oh my goodness I am so excited for te cover reveal and the soon to be release of Heir of Hope! However I have to admit I am SUPER excited for your steampunk series! I can only think of one other Christian author who has published in this genre and can’t wait to read yours! Will be praying for you and definitely can’t wait to read it whenever it releases! 😀

  3. I’m really excited to see your new book covers and look forward to reading Heir of Hope! This new series sounds fascinating as well. 🙂
