It’s that time of the year where I take a holistic look at the year that’s passed, and the year that’s fast approaching. I’ve accomplished what I wanted in terms of novels at least, with ‘Silent Hill: Betrayal’ published before its set deadline and it looks like ‘Dream Whispers’ may be completed well ahead of schedule.
However, whenever I’ve given updates on the novel I am currently writing, expanding my growing marketing skills that were non-existent before, I don’t get to share my new novels that I have created and am busy developing in the background. In the last two days I developed ideas for three new novels, and so my list is growing faster than I can catch up with.
Luckily, as a self-published author, who writes, edits, illustrates, publishes, networks and markets all on my own (much against the advice of those online gurus; yes, I am my own island), the only one who sets deadlines for my work is me. And since I consider myself a hard worker who writes relatively quickly, I’m not too hard on myself most of the time.
So, here are my list of projects in my planning portfolio that I hope to publish and release in this single lifetime

Ok, I’ve always had this list on OneNote, but now having compiled it like this, I realise just how many novels I have planned. Let’s hope by the Lord’s grace that my life is long enough to complete them all and their sequels. Yes, I am a great lover of sequels, with very few planned solo works. Most books, games or movies I own are parts of a series. That’s just how I roll.
So here’s to 2017 and what it may hold. May it never be said that my literary life was boring!
With warm regards
