Writer Wednesday


Last week I started Legends of the Moren Empire volume 2 and wrote almost 12k – but again, I have a very detailed outline that is the Italian version in a previous version with the usual fantasy elves and dragons that need to be turned into the new Silvery Earth. I’m also proud to announce that 5 months in I already reached half my goal, 250K (reminder to newcomers – I plan on writing another 500K this year).

A friend posted this article about the real reason fans hate the end of GoT which made me realize that I write that kind of fantasy. An editor of the first couple of years even said my writing reminded her of George R.R. Martin (that’s why I bought Game of Thrones, but it’s still on my desk, TBR, since 2008 or something).

So, I write sociological fantasy on a secondary world. I don’t kill of my main characters in every book, since mine can be read as standalone, but I do change protagonist with every story. Yes, sometimes they’re related, but sometimes they’re not. I’m still filling the holes in the history of the world. The world itself is the series, not the characters.

So it doesn’t really matter from where you enter Silvery Earth, just start exploring… that’s why I have both a chronology and a more segmented list – like, if you want only certain kinds of stories, you can get just those and won’t miss much. It’s definitely an unusual series, with a lot of books, but then, it doesn’t matter at which point you come in. The other series are better appreciated in order (although the only series with numbered books is Future Earth Chronicles).

And we got paperbacks a go-go! The five Future Earth Chronicles (with alternating interior paper cream/white/cream/white/cream), the Vampires Through the Centuries Novellas and Male Lovers of Silvery Earth Volume 3. I even got my copy of Pulphouse #5 and it’s awesome! πŸ™‚

And there’s a new story out at The Infinite Bard! Check what readers have to say about the first four and go read for yourself! πŸ™‚ Read the latest story at The Infinite Bard! πŸ™‚ Have a great week! πŸ˜€

Last week was another 11K week, wrapping up the Lone Wolves Team and adding something to Silvery Earth Kids. Now I’m on Hal the Rogue and probably I’ll add his mother’s story at the end, since, like the other Lone Wolves books, his story starts with the hunt for Mr. H – that’s year 5245 of the Star Nations or 2053 on Earth in the alternative future of Star Minds.

Yesterday two more audiobooks should have gone live, but I will try to provide the links next week. I’m still trying to find the links for Otherside on Amazon and Kobo, way over 30 days since I hit that “publish” button! 😦 If Findaway Voices can’t get me on Amazon, I don’t think I’ll do many more audiobooks with them. Maybe a couple more, because I loved two of the narrators and would love to hear their voices again, but that’s it. And not before the end of the summer anyway.

Next week I’m off DayJob and hope to catch up on paperbacks. Not that I hear anyone clamoring for them, but if I don’t do them, nobody will buy them, right? πŸ˜‰ And I’ll need some paperbacks if I get a table in the Creators’ Alley at Dublin Worldcon. Booked the flights (even for 20BooksEdinburgh), now time will fly – hopefully. And the summer heat won’t kill me before I get there! πŸ˜€

By the way, I will NOT be a panelist in Dublin (my first Worldcon without panels, yay!), so I better start looking for a space in the Creators’ Alley and bring the curated anthologies to that table! I have at least one other author at the con, Fulvio Gatti, he might help sell some! πŸ™‚

Two unmissable posts this week: Great Advice from Joe Lansdale reposted by Dean Welsey Smith and Taming the Critical Voice by Kristine Kathryn Rusch.
