E4A: Pt 2

by WJ Davies on August 20, 2014

I’d like to announce that a sequel for my short story Empathy for Andrew (available in The Robot Chronicles) is forthcoming. This is in no small part due to  suggestions from several readers that this could turn into a longer story, and perhaps one worthy of telling. [EDIT: This is now available for pre-order on Amazon].

In other news, I’m going back to school in September, for the first time in six years. I’m taking a professional scriptwriting course in Ottawa, and I’m hoping that this focus on writing should mean an increase in my fiction production as well. Things could get interesting around here in the next 8-12 months, as I spend more time writing and releasing new material. I’ve got Race of the Commons on the burner, which should see a November release, as well as short stories for several upcoming anthologies, including a new one from the LOOW Collective writer’s group. There’s a novel I’d like to write during NaNoWriMo this year, sort of a sci-fi conscpiracy thriller, and I’ve also had an idea for Silo Submerged 2 for a while now. Those stories will likely be called The Rebel and The Savior, and I’ll release them together in one book. And something else. I have about 5 story ideas that I’m not sure what I want to do with. I was thinking that maybe I’d write them and release them all at the same time, as a quintet. All the stories would hopefully provide enjoyment to the reader, but if one or two of them in particular resonated more, it could be turned into a larger work. One of them is a Binary Cycle prequel, chronicling the Resurrection Ark’s journey from Earth to Taran. MiLO would feature prominently.

Goals for the next 8 months: Empathy for Andrew 2, Race of the Commons, 2 anthology short stories, Untitled NaNoWriMo novel, Silo Submerged 2, and The Harder They Fall (A Quintet of Novellas).

Yikes, this kid better get writing.
