Decision 2023

 (From the February 17th Red Wolf Pack newsletter)

No, this isn't a political pitch--I realized the implications of the subject line after I'd outlined most of my newsletter, and I didn't want to change it--Decision 2023 is what I'm calling my process of deciding what my next writing project should be.

And I could use your help.

You see, Halves and Half Nots will bring to a conclusion a three-novel story arc in the Spaceship Huey Adventures. I've enjoyed writing the series, and it's been mildly successful as far as sales go. But it's the 8th Clifford Crane novel, and I'd like to put the character to rest--at least for a while.

I've got four choices, all projects I hope eventually to work on, but I need to focus on just one right now (now being the next few years). There's a science fiction, an epic fantasy, and two urban fantasy options. I can't think of a more qualified group than you guys to help me make the decision.

Could you look at my <Decision 2023 Survey> and give me your thoughts? It'll only take about five minutes, and I'd really appreciate it. Here's the link again: <Decision 2023 Survey>.

Progress Notes:

This morning I passed the 47k word count for Halves and Half Nots, the third book in the Spaceship Huey Adventures. My goal is 85-95k by June 1st, when the first draft goes out to beta readers. I'm chugging along, and I'm having fun writing it!

Featured Recommendation:

This book is on the TBR list that's part of my research for an epic fantasy project I have in the works (take my survey above to find out more). I haven't read it yet, but recommendations for it came from multiple sources. One of the cool things about it is, the book shown below is only 99 cents, and you can dive into the series by reading a free short story. Check out the series page on Amazon by clicking on the cover image or the link below the description.

A quest for the fabled Bow of Hart drags reluctant hero, Athson, into danger between a shapeshifting dragon and a deadly wizard. Hunted by trolls serving his enemies while plagued by disorienting hallucinations, Athson battles danger and himself. But his destiny might kill him before he completes the quest when he finds an item that threatens to destroy his grasp on reality.
