Goodbye 2020, and hello 2021! Last year may have been a write-off for most, but I’m looking forward to being both productive AND prolific this year! Yes, I have many plans… Here’s what I’m hoping to achieve this year:
Fire Walker Launching This February!
That’s right! The sequel to my Young Adult Fantasy, Sand Dancer, is launching on 23rd February! Find out more about Fire Walker and watch this space for our cover reveal and more surprises. If you want to be the first to see the book cover and read exclusive excerpts from the sequel, then make sure you sign up for my newsletter.
It has taken over a year to finish the sequel to my debut novel, no thanks to the pandemic, but trust me! It will be worth the wait! I’m excited to welcome you all back to Sandair. There’s more of the world to explore in Fire Walker with more adventures, more monsters, and more sword dancing! In this sequel, the Fire Walkers need Mina’s help and she’ll take on greater responsibility to protect them from enemies both at home and afar.
More Sand Dancer!
But the journey doesn’t stop at Fire Walker! I’ve already finished the first draft of book three in the Sand Dancer series, and I’m hoping myself and my publisher will work hard to get it released sometime in 2021. That’s right! TWO Sand Dancer books in 2021!
And because I like to push myself, I’ll be spending the first half of the year writing the FOURTH book in the series. I already have an outline ready to go. We’ll see if we can get this one out in time for winter.
In between all of these books, I hope to write some short stories based on some of the side characters too.
A New Challenger Approaches…
As well as continuing the Sand Dancer series, I’m also branching out into adult fantasy books! It’s time I develop my writing skills and explore new fantasy worlds. I’ve already written the first draft of my new historical fantasy with steampunk vibes and I’ll be working on that this year in between Sand Dancer books and edits. At some point in 2021, I’ll be introducing you to a world of cruel gods and tea. I’m truly in love with this new story and can’t wait to show you all what I’ve been working on.
You can find out more about what projects I’m working on via my new Upcoming Books page and also by joining my newsletter.
The Year of Indie!
I’m a big fan of indie books and indie games and I want to show my love and passion for all things indie in 2021. I was planning on using my blog here to spread some indie love, but I may be working on a super secret indie blog… You’ll be the first to know!
I’ll definitely be reading lots of indie books this year and playing some great indie games.
Since I plan to focus on MORE writing and MORE books, that means there will be a few changes to this website in 2021. I’ll be cutting back on certain blog articles, such as my YA Fantasy round ups every month, and will instead focus on articles relating to Sand Dancer and my upcoming books and projects.
I’m also going to stop posting my progress round ups here straight away, and will instead send them to my newsletter. If you want to keep up to date with my projects and get short stories and content first before they appear on this website, then please sign up for my newsletter! I’ll make it worth your while.
As you can see, I’ve got a busy year ahead! What are your goals for 2021?
