HouseKeeping

I've been spending the weekend trying to put my book projects in order (OK, Saturday was mostly pancakes, barbecue, and the like, but I was thinking real hard about it. Most of the actual working happened today, while I was still hungover from staying up too late out here).

And today I reviewed, once again, all of the projects I'm currently interested in completing and shopping:

Nyx books:

God's War - shopping
Black Desert - drafting
Babylon - synopsis

Ruusu books:

The Dragon's War - shopping
Over Burning Cities - drafting
Book 3 - rough outline
Book 4 - rough outline
Book 5 - rough outline

Stand-alone guerrilla-girl genocide novel:

The Burning Fields - rough outline/researching

Hell, if I could sell the Ruusu books, that's enough projects to keep me busy for the next ten years. And if I don't, well, there are still enough books about guerrilla girls and holy wars to keep me busy for five or six.

I don't consider this a bad thing. Problem is, I really need to keep other shit off my plate until I finish some of these. Right now the priority list is the Nyx books, followed by The Burning Fields. All the Ruusu books are on hold for now. I think I may need to revisit the concept when I'm a little more skilled.

In the meantime, no more projects on the fucking burner until I have Black Desert in the bag and at least half of Babylon done.

1 comments so far. Got something to say?

Hey, can I read The Dragon's War? I know you sent it to me once before but I lost it when my hard drive crashed. I'd love to read that one (and the sequel to Gods War, when it's ready) -
