I have never written a book before, so the process is quite challenging, especially since I wish to write so many (and on top of everything else I have to deal with). However, I know that I need to focus on the first one that I am writing The Ruins of Desolation.
I have everything outlined and even have room for things I wish to add in or remove, it is all seemingly ready to complete. I even wrote a first draft, but I am completely unhappy with it. However, I understand that this will be my first book. It is never going to be as perfect as I would like it.
So, I had an idea.
Just like Charles Dickens with his serialized novels, where each chapter was released one at a time in a newspaper, I have decided to do the same with my blog. I will release one chapter at a time here on my website for all of you to read.
I will make an effort to finalize my thoughts on each chapter, but do not expect this to be the case with all of the chapters, though most will just be fixing minor errors such as punctuation.
Then, after all is said and done, I will release the novel for sale as an e-Book and work out how to get it printed out and have a link to purchase it.
I have always been fascinated by Dickens’ use with this, as well as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s use, because it is a nice way to build the same type of suspense from that which you find in TV shows.
Will I do this with all my books? I do not know, but we will see. However, I hope that you enjoy The Ruins of Desolation and the books that I release to come.
Thank you so much.
Happy New Year!
