About Nexus and beyond

Well, that was quite the ride … I hope you enjoyed it (I know did!).

So now the next question is … now what?
Nexus had kept me blogging effortlessly for almost 3 months! So yes, I confess: I’m a lazy blogger.

The story of Nexus came to me sometime back in the late eighties when I first came across the notion that what we call reality is nothing but an illusion – albeit a highly convincing one. So I started writing Nexus (under the working title of Dreamknot) and got about half way (less than 10,000 words) when I found myself running on empty.
I still knew roughly what I wanted to say, but just didn’t know how to…

A few years ago I revisited the story and finished it. Which sounds great except I was not happy with either the writing nor the ending. Then earlier this year I picked it up again and rewrote the bits I wasn’t happy with.

The result was the Nexus of Dreams that you see today.

So back to that crucial question of “what now?”

There are a couple of other stories that are in desperate need of rewriting and then there are a couple of ideas that have been lying fallow in my subconscious for decades. They are full of weeds as big as trees, but might be worth revisiting with a large machete or even a flame-thrower…

About book two of Destiny of Fire .

Keys of Awakening is proceeding very nicely. Currently going through what must be the fourth draft.

Jan in Adelaide is doing a great job editing it, chapter by chapter (she’s on chapter 6) and of course my primary editor, Sa Silvano, has already gone over the first 18 chapters with a fine-toothed comb, pointing out all the things I was either too blind to see or too lazy to do anything about…

So when can you expect to see a copy in print? If history repeats itself I would safely say by February 2014, unless a miracle happens (so please add your prayers to mine and tweet God…)

On that note I’ll sign off and bid you a great week!
