My Books – Part Seven

Astrid Maxxim and the Electric Racecar Challenge (2016)

I had plotted out  Electric Racecar Challenge, and was just getting ready to start.  Then, I was reading a story in which a character was in a car wreck and ended up with a chunk of their memories missing.  This was devastating for that character and they never were able to recover.  I thought that this was just the sort of beginning that would be a challenge for Astrid to overcome.  This also added an interesting subplot that I was able to explore that tied into catfishing, which was big in the news at the time.

A Plague of Wizards (2016)

After the traumatic into to Electric Racecar Challenge, I decided I wanted something like that for the next Senta book.  This was not part of the overall arc that I had planned.  But Senta had become so powerful and important, I wondered what would happen to her friends and Birmisia if she were to just disappear.

Kanana: The Jungle Girl (2016)

I started working on this book about 2011.  I worked on it off and on for a couple of years. When I got back to it in 2014, I decided that I didn’t like the story in the first person, so I went back and rewrote it in the third person.  Then I decided that it was better the way that I had it before.  I went back to the first draft and continued it until there were only three chapters left.  Then I set it aside.  I finally came back to it at the end of the 2016 year, and it was fairly easy to finish up.

His Robot Wife: A Great Deal of Patience (Coming Soon)

This book will be out in September 9th, 2017.  I got the idea for this book in 2014, while working on Charity.  I started it right after A Plague of Wizards, but paused to work on the next Senta book, and Kanana.  This is by far my favorite robot book.

The Dragon’s Choice (Coming Soon)

I started working on this after A Plague of Wizards and it was the quickest book I’ve ever written, unusual since, I think it’s nearly the longest Senta book.  It continues the story of the same main characters in A Plague of Wizards.  The first draft of this book is done, and as soon as the final edit of A Great Deal of Patience is done, I’ll start the edit on it.
