Living Outside The Box Born-Again Techo-Geek Renaissance Man

Current Novel Project

I've been trying very hard to keep my writing momentum going, but being at home makes it very hard for me. There's just too much going on, and people (kids and wife) that need my attention. This isn't a bad thing, it just makes it hard to write without being interrupted.

The excerpt I posted recently is from the book I'm working on now. It's basically a tech-thriller/drama/action/crime... well, heck, I don't know exactly what you'd call it. All of the things I write are hard to nail down to one specific genre! I guess the most appropriate would be to class it by location or setting, which means it's a modern action story. I'm finding more and more as I write that my ideas and stories really don't fit narrow genres, and I guess that's okay in that it appeals to a wide audience, but bad in that it makes the book hard to market!

Anyway, I'm up to around 51,000 words (before editing) so I'm definitely getting closer to my goal of around 75K or 80K. That seems to be a good length for the kind of story I'm doing, and I think it'll come together nicely at the end.

The other side to it is I want to finish this book before I write the Prequel to Seeking The Heavens. That's going to be an interesting book in and of itself, and I've got a couple chapters written already, but I need to outline it and work on key scenes before I can really say it's a "work-in-progress."

Okay, I guess that's enough for now, back to work!
