The New Empire Trilogy Book 2, Weekly Update (1/8)

It was a decent writing week. Plugged 3,000 words into Book 2, bringing us up to 36K. I think I've ironed out all the first draft obstacles, making sure everything's correct, and that all relevant story threads have been tended to while sticking to the heart of the story.

I always know what I want to do I just don't always know how to do it. For a bad, unrelated, example, say I want to write a scene where milk is turned to water in a believable way. If I was writing a fantasy, that might be pretty simple. But writing science-fiction, I need to put some actual science in that fiction, otherwise I risk entering Hokeyville.

In any case, the "hard" parts to write are written (as far as the first draft goes) and I got some relatively easy writing coming up for this week. And that's that.

As a reminder, New Empire Book 2 is scheduled to be released May 2017. If any of you want to get a jump on Book 1, Children of The Forgotten (pictured above) I've provided links and a blurb below.

Children of The Forgotten (Kindle)

Children of The Forgotten (Print)

The Vrilkist, an advanced alien race bent on galactic conquest and annihilation, has been eating away at the borders of The Imperial Confederation of Ertho—an empire already plagued by rebel and separatists factions—in an ongoing war. The three-front conflict has left the empire short on fighters and material while the Vrilkist, in contrast, appear to have unlimited resources and firepower. 

Desperate, the empire gathers everything it has to launch a last ditch assault on the enemy. Success will buy the empire time to regroup and restock; failure will mean the end of everything. Cornelius Coleman, student, pugilist, loner, soon becomes a reluctant player within the larger scheme when he is conscripted to fight in the imperial forces. His journey will begin on Old Earth, but it will end very far away.
