A Title Revealed

Portrait of young man.

Reseph – hero of the next book.

Originally it was planned that my next book would be titled “The Unseen Hand”. The story, plot and twists were all worked out, until…

Well once I started writing the characters took over. This is not unusual for me, all my characters become larger than life once I start writing them.

Anyway, Reseph was most insistent about what he thought to be the ‘important’ part of the story, so that is where the story has gone. I’m afraid to say the next book is now going to be quite different than I had originally planned. You’d think I’d learn from past experience and realise my characters will always take over.

So now that Reseph has jumped and down, yelled and screamed at me what he wants, I find have to rename my next book. It will now be called ‘Reseph Revealed’.

A pretty boring title if you ask me, but the decision was not mine; blame Reseph if you don’t like it. Anyone who wants to take issue with the choices of a 3000 year old Herashevn vampire is braver than me.

I will be posting to my Facebook page what was going to be the beginning of the Prologue to the original story. It’s very short, but I hope that you will enjoy it anyway.

For those of you who are patiently waiting for the release of the next book, you will be pleased to know that I have made significant progress; despite many, many distractions. Okay, I admit it, I’ve been wasting time playing games when I should have been writing. To be honest, I think I’ve been somewhat battling over whether or not to stick with my original plan for the story, or let it go the way Reseph wanted it. We all know who won that war. No matter, I’ve written about one third of the first draft and still plan on a release later this year.

If you are keen to know what is happening with the book you may want to ‘Like’ my Facebook page, as I occasionally posts lines from the book as I’m writing. It may, or may not as the case may be, give you some insight into where the story is heading or what is happening.

Chapter 8 has been taunting me for a little while, but I reckon I’ve got it sussed now so I better get back to the grindstone and pumping out those words.

  1. Damn characters, coming over here, chaning our book titles… they should all go back to Russia!

    I am still wondering how a character intended to be a quick bit of local colour in Gods of the Deep ended up getting hired as the main character’s bosun…

    And I have the same game playing problem you have at the moment… :)

  2. LOL David, what game has you sucked in at the moment? My character screaming at me has somewhat curbed my own gaming addiction.

    Hmm Russia you say. Might be an interesting backdrop for the next book.
