Jon’s Author Diary -July 14, 2023

Join me on my journey through the world of epic fantasy as I share updates on my second draft progress, character exploration, and more.

This week, I’m excited to share my journey as I continue to delve deeper into the world of my epic fantasy series, Ravenglass Legends. I’ve made substantial progress on the second draft, with 35,000 words already improved. I can’t wait to share this story with you.
I also wrote the first draft for a short story centreed on Maja, one of the point of view characters in the Ravenglass Legends. Discovering her journey and experiences has been a fascinating process, and I believe it will add a new layer of depth to the whole series.
I also completed another episode of the Guild of Assassins which goes live on Substack on Saturday. If you’ve been following along, you know that this is my ongoing novel series that I’ve been releasing weekly. The story is gaining momentum, and I hope you’re enjoying the ride!
This week wasn’t all about writing, though. I was fortunate enough to have a work experience student helping me out. They’ve been a great asset, creating stunning graphics and engaging videos to help bring my books to life and reach more readers.
But it wasn’t all smooth sailing. I faced some technical challenges with WordPress, where the formatting got lost during the transition from Microsoft Word. It was a bit frustrating, but, on the bright side, I’ve found a workaround. So, stay tuned for more polished blog posts in the future.
Until next time, cheerio.

Jon’s Author Diary – July 7, 2023

This week, Jon balanced writing, web migration, and tax work. A new chapter of “Guild of Assassins” is ready for Substack. His website shifted back to WordPress. Amid tasks, he read “The Outcast Dead” and began “Deliverance Lost.” He plans to return to “Ravenglass Legends” next week.

Welcome back to Jon’s Author Diary for the week ending July 9, 2023.

This week has been filled with a fair mix of creation, organization, and some obligatory tax paperwork.

I’m delighted to announce the completion of another riveting chapter from my ongoing project, Guild of Assassins, which is scheduled to go live on Substack this coming Saturday. You won’t want to miss it!

Much of my time this week was consumed with a digital migration of sorts, moving my website back to WordPress – a task that required plenty of patience and attention to detail. In between the lines of coding and content organization, I tackled my taxes, something I’m sure we can all agree is a thrilling way to spend a week.

Amid all the work, I managed to find some treasured reading time, completing ‘The Outcast Dead’ in the epic Horus Heresy series. With no pause, I’ve already dived into the next book, ‘Deliverance Lost.’ I can’t wait to share my thoughts on these in an upcoming review.

Looking ahead, I’m eager to return to the heart of my craft – writing. Next week, I will be immersing myself back into the world of Ravenglass Legends with the second book, along with the continued work on Guild of Assassins.

Make sure to tune in next week to follow along on my author journey. Like, share, and subscribe if you haven’t already, and let’s continue this writing adventure together.

So, until next time, cheerio.
