Progress Report

June 16, 2017

With Divine Assistance now available on Amazon, I’ve been turning my attention to my next project: a collection of short stories set in the same universe as The Unconventional Heroes Series. The stories will features characters from the series, both those you’re already quite familiar with (e.g., Timmy) and those who’ve stayed mostly in the background (e.g., some of the people who work at the castle). The stories will also be set at different times. Some will take place before the beginning of the series while others will take place at various points throughout the series.

To give you some idea of what I’m working on, here are the titles (some of them provisional) for the stories that I’ve drafted so far along with rough word counts on the drafts in brackets:

  • The Hungry Dragon Cookie Company (4900)
  • Food Supply (3000)
  • Piracy and Practicality (3700)
  • Family Matters (3300)
  • First Impressions (3100)
  • Tomb Raider (5700)
  • Impostor (6200)
  • The Bank (4900)
  • Gardening (3000)

That adds up to a rough total of 37,800 words. Keep in mind that I still have a few more stories to add to that, and the likely overall word count will be around 45,000-50,000 words. Now, add in the fact that these are first drafts and that it is not uncommon for a story of mine to double in length from the first draft to the final draft, and I’m looking at around 80,000+ words.

So, yes, that’s what I’ve been doing.
