Progress Report

Just a short update on how things are proceeding – I’m planning to do these semi-regular as much so I can keep track of progress as to let everyone else know what is going on.

There are three main areas I am working on;

Braeden Wolf Book Three

The third book, which I have given the title of Damnation Down Below for the time being, is coming along well. Even though the first rough draft is only have done, I’ve started the rewrite and am already 8K into it. The aim is for a 40K novella, so that is 20% of the way there.

The Blood Games

The recently started Blood Games serial has had the first short written, and rough outlines for the second and third shorts written as well. I hope to start on the first draft of the second short later this week – they aren’t very long initially so they can be written fairly fast.

Here is where I am not making much progress – marketing. I’m responsible for getting the word out mostly. I can’t just sit back and expect books to sell themselves. Even though I kick around on twitter and facebook a bit, I really need to start making an effort to search out other places, such as websites and forums, to try and drum up some interest.



As may have been noted by the lack of much content of late on here and on twitter I have stalled a bit.

There are a number of causes of that. Firstly I got sick and it completely stopped momentum from which I haven’t really caught back up on.

Also there was the release which provided a big high but seemed to divert a bit too much energy and attention.

And thirdly World of Warcraft: Cataclysm came out. Yeah, I’m a WOW player. It sucked up way too much time. I now have it mostly back under control.

I’m half way through the first draft of book three, but I’ll never make real progress unless I sit down, put all distractions aside and really knuckle down.

My Twitter Competition

I’ve just started a competition on my twitter account (@braedenwolf). When I get to 500 followers I will choose one lucky (or not so lucky) follower at random and give them a guest appearance in the unnamed book 3 of Braeden Wolf.

The exact nature of that appearance will remain to be seen – I will speak with the person selected and see how exactly they would like to appear. It could be as a vamp, a passer-by in the street, a victim or anything in between.

So come and follow (or recruit followers) for your chance to win the prize.
