For a change of pace, my oldest daughter and I decided to write a children's book series together. I finished the first draft last year and its 200+ pages were eaten by the computer. I never found my back up file!
This ended up being a good thing. It gave us an opportunity to restart (not that I didn't howl at the loss...)
I've written 18 books. 14 of those are part of my Epic, Chest of Souls. There are 5 prequels and nine main-story novels. I even have sequels planned...but I'm taking a year off (at the very least) to pursue a different kind of animal: children's fiction.
The series will star the above characters and these: http://stravenlite.deviantart.com/art/Taps-and-Friends-at-Beach-468363132 and a LOT more.
This is a real change of pace for me because I've written for people 13+ with all the other books.
Stay Tuned...it's going to be a lot of fun for young and those young at heart. It has been a real learning experience to have to consult with my daughter during my dip into creativity. We expect the finished product by December, at the latest. If I have my way, it will be October.
