As I've told you all, I've been working on compiling my list of anomalies. These are my characters, planets, ships, and objects that are part of the Circeae system. It's been a good exercise for me because I'm getting all my descriptions down for each of the characters. I'm digging through what I have written and placing all that information in one document. About time, you might say...but I'm not your typical writer. I do things outside the norm.
Today, I worked on a couple of characters that just made me smile. I thought about their stories and the interaction between them, and I feel like I have this huge secret that I just can't wait to share with the world! The characters mentioned in Asylum have their own stories to be told.
It's so neat to hear back from people who have read Asylum. The best part is all the positive feedback I'm hearing. I know it's not perfect. I know I still have a lot to learn as a writer, but people are enjoying it! That just blows me away. And they want more. Yay!!
I have more. Lots more. Nine books more. I just need to find the right venue to get it out there. I could rush the process and publish them all on Kindle, but I feel like I owe my characters more than that. Don't get me wrong. There are authors who do publish that way, and they've been successful. I think that's wonderful! But I'm a traditionalist. I want to see the printed page.
In Valor, my main character collects books because they've been banned by the government. Part of me is in that character, Not because I think our government is going to outlaw books. But I love the physical weight of a book in your hand. I love the smell. I love turning the pages and exploring more than I should at one time. I love flipping to the end to see what characters make it!
But I just can't wait to share more of my universe with you. Asylum is just the start. I just hope that you'll enjoy the others, too!
