Keeping up the momentum.

Getting The Devil’s in the Detail released feels very much like the ascent up a tall mountain. Just when you think you are at the top, there is invariably another peak to climb before arriving at the summit. I’m currently working on the ‘business-y’ side of releasing the book. I’m amazed at the complexity of it all, but I think I’ve found a way through the reams of paperwork. The good news is that I’ll only need to do this once, so subsequent books will be far easier to finally release. It’s all about momentum – just keep moving forward.

And it’s in that spirit that I have started on my second novel. I have been tinkering on a few side projects this year in the background, but I’m pleased to have decided on what my next novel will be. The planning out of the story has gone well, and just this morning I was drinking coffee in my favourite cafe and getting plenty of writing done.

I’ve set myself a target of 10,000 words a week, and I’m pleased to report that I’ve already got 8,000 of those done this week. It’s exciting to think that I should have a fairly strong draft ready by Christmas. I’ll try and blog about my progress throughout the year, but what I can reveal is that this novel is completely separate to the first and tackles different themes. It’s also decidedly Spanish-y.

Hasta luego, amigos.
