In The Zone

The Life of a Writer

Yesterday evening I started work in my study at about 7:30 pm.
At 8:00 pm my wife brought me in a cup of coffee and asked me if we were going to watch an episode of something on TV at 9:00 and I said yes.
At 8:45 she gave me a reminder, at 10:00 pm she walked past my study asking me to turn the lights off when I come to bed, (ooops)!
At 11:15pm I realised that my coffee had gone cold, my wife was asleep and the time had passed by without my noticing!
Now that is what we call being In The Zone and tonight I will probably do it all again!

December Update

The third and final book in The Torc Trilogy which feature The Belgae Torc and The Gordian Knot, is progressing at last.

I now have 77,000 words done and the plot is thickening.  This book should have been completed by Easter this year but unfortunately I missed the deadline mainly because I moved house in January and that upset all my writing plans.  My new deadline of October has been and gone, but now I am in full flow at last, :-)
I should have the book written by about March, so another Easter release.  (Only a year overdue).

I continue to get great feedback for my book The Witness with many readers wanting to know when the next book will be out.  This book was designed as a stand alone novel with no sequel.
I plan to write a series of books, five probably that overlap, so the next book in the series is about a Cellist.  Some characters and places that featured in The Witness will appear in this book, but it is not a sequel.
I admit that I'm tempted to think about a follow up to The Witness, but this will not appear any time soon.

I am looking forward to writing the next book in this series.  I have about 35,000 words of notes and a research file.  Ideas and notes for the other books are beginning to develop, so I should have enough material and ideas to keep me busy for at least the next few years.
All I have to do is improve my marketing techniques, earn some money and give up the day job!
Happy reading book lovers!
