Well, it didn’t take as long as the first one, but I am happy to announce that my 2nd novel, “World|Time,” is now complete!
I was originally looking to have this book finished over the summer to be released around this time, but unfortunately things didn’t work out that way. To be honest, this year was a bit difficult. My mental state wasn’t really in peak for nearly the entirety of 2018. The problem was that I had a day job that was slowly killing my soul. After losing my job in 2017, I managed to find another around this time last year. It had promise, but I had to sacrifice making a wage that I had grown accustomed to; big mistake. But what can you do— when you need a job, and you need to bring in an income, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. I did it…and it was miserable! Prince said “Money Don’t Matter,” but I beg to differ— it matters! It was a kick in the balls to making a salary that made it beyond difficult to live my life, care for my family, and maintain my sanity. So my author life had to suffer along with me.
About a month ago, I was laid off from the soul-sucking job— which a few folks in my life called a “blessing in disguise.” On to of that, I was lucky enough to score a side-gig a few weeks earlier which was to be a tremendous help in offsetting the shitty salary. Being home over the last month as given me the time, and the energy, to do what I had been trying to do all year— FINISH THE BOOK! And now, the day before I am to start a BRAND NEW JOB…I managed to finally finish “World|Time”.
I plan on taking a week off to reset my brain, and get myself accustomed to my new gig (more on that soon). Then I start the edits. After that, I’ll finalize the cover. And after that…you’ll all get to read it! As of now, it’s looking like I’ll be able to release “World|Time” in February of 2019. So please, look out for it! Next up, after “World|Time” look out for two more books in 2019— more on that will be coming soon as well!
In the meantime, you can listen to my movie discussion podcast called Cinepod Moviecast, which will be moving into Season 2!
