A New Year
This past December I sent my agent Steve my newest completed novel- Twyn Souls - an ambitious adult fantasy told from three POVs that each alternate across a sixty year gap, showing the characters at the beginning and end of their journeys. Set in a world where everyone has a "twyn" they see through while asleep, and who sees through them while awake, this is the first in a duology.
Twyn Souls is my fourteenth publisher-ready project and my eighteenth book total, including the four out now.
As I shared previously, there are four books on submission at the moment. Those projects will hopefully find a home this year. I'm very optimistic for book deals and while it's been a long road to get to this point, I am excited to take that next step.
In the meantime, I'm focusing on three major new works-in-progress this year. One is a satire, my first attempt at genuine humor. This fantasy parody has an Onward meets Lower Decks vibe and is about the struggles of parenting. It's told in a choose-your-own-adventure style and filled with terrible puns which makes it extra fun. I'm also working on a massive space opera/space fantasy in a similar style to Dune and Star Wars. Finally, I've started a new YA/older Fantasy Romance series- loosely Court of Thorns and Roses meets Shadow and Bone vibe, which centers on two magic users trapped together on a world that both needs and despises them.
In the meantime, you can find me blogging away at CityDads about parenting. And if you havent subscribed to the newsletter yet, be sure to now, so you can catch the exciting book deal news that I hope to soon share.
