Update On The Sequel

Well, I'm just about to be 11,000 words into the sequel's draft. It's coming along, and ideas are bouncing and flowing. Where this is going, and the types of things people like to see unfold in this world, I'm telling y'all, this story is going to be one that's remembered for a very long time.

Those who read it will see tragedy turn into triumph.

The plan is to have the draft done by the end of the year. That means I need to produce another 50K - 70K words in like 60 days. Talk about setting huge goals.

Stay tuned.

The sequel is coming along. It's ummmm... making sure things align correctly and follow the first book's path takes some planning. That, and I have to have some serious "pull readers in content" w/o overbearing details in place to suck readers in. We're getting there. The plot, the end goal, the trails and tribulations, it's going to be great.

Real life situations here on the road to success - the ultimate successes in one's eyes.

Have you not picked up your copy of Six Gears yet? The time to do it is now.

Digital copies for your tablet or Kindle, and in paperback. Time to prepare yourself for the sequel.

We even have an 80 year lady running from the cops in a SRT8.

I appreciate that.

I've learned so much from the first go around, and honest feedback I received has help me improve a lot IMHO on the second. However, I'll leave that up to the readers to decipher. At this point, I'm just happy these type of milestones will fill my obituary one day.

I'll leave it on this note for now... It gets really real, and the windows are rolled down while traveling on this journey.

Requoting this as I did some thinking. I guess some could look at the CB7 in the story as a hero car depending on one's perspective. You have to read the book to understand.



Back to the sequel, the editing phase will be that much more great than the first go around. I'm not saying the first go was bad. It's just hindsight is 20/20. Cleaner and a more creative writing flow for the sequel is the goal. Things I'm learning as I go.

Regardless of who... no, strike that. It's just another accomplishment. The draft of the sequel is now complete.

Thank you Lord.

Six Gears, The Sequel - Quick Teaser

I believe I'm improving fast and really getting the hang of this.



"...As they cruised through the open waters, the yacht rocked to a slow side to side rhythm moved by the current. Marquis could smell the air's scent changing with ever nautical mile. He was no longer breathing in diesel and petrol fumes that filled the city air. With every deep breath he took, clean crisp air with a hint of salt rushed into his lungs. Move Out was standing at the bow trying to mentally get at a place of peace and relaxation. He was in a semi-zoned out state looking down at the water. The small waves created by the yacht resembled a salmon being parted with a knife by an itame. The other part of M.O. that wasn't in la-la land was growing more nervous from the sirens off into the distance. Move Out tried to focus on the immediate environment, but the sirens wouldn't let him. He even attempted to convince himself the sirens were a figment of his imagination, and he was in the clear to a new life..."

In the editing phase.
