Dariel's 2013 Writing Goals Revisited

Ah, the advent of Spring. Resurrection Day, bright colors, blooming flowers, and...time to revisit my goals. ** = Completed.

As you can see, I've gotten off to a pretty good start. Published "Dark Sentinels Book Two: Torin" mid-February, so it's still a relatively new release, and sent the manuscript of "The Alerians - Dark Progeny Series" book 2 - "Gideon's Light" to my publisher (it was approx. a week later than I'd originally planned). 

I made a couple of revisions for two reasons: "Gideon's Light" was a bit late (it just kept growing!), and I got side-tracked (happens a lot) by another story so vivid I just had to write it. That's what I'm doing right now (note #3).

Finally, I decided to hold off on content edits to my mega-long reincarnation novel until next year so I can release book one of my new series, "Children of Cain" no later than the end of January. Notice, too that I'm planning to release "Dark Sentinels Book Three: Parrish," "The Alerians - Dark Progeny: Gideon's Light" (bk.2), "The Alerians - Dark Progeny: Rehobeth's Passion" (bk.3), and finish the outline of "Dark Sentinels Book Four" by the end of the year. We'll see how that goes.
