Book Updates & New Online Course for Writers

May 19, 2021 | Digital Products, Reading, Writing

The start of the second quarter has been a busy, busy time for me as I work to complete a few new projects that I’m excited about sharing with you today.

The Azaïs Witches

So first, let’s talk about my novel: The Azaïs Witches. I got stuck for a while when I was trying to do revisions, so I took a break from my novel for a little while.

Usually doing this will help me see things more clearly and I’m able to get unstuck once I get back to it. So for now, I’m taking a break and working on some other stuff.

One thing I’m working on is a short story that takes place in The Azaïs Witches’ world, but from the point of view of one of my side characters, Sam.

This story takes place two years before the novel, but is still connected to the events that happen in the novel or in better terms, it leads up to those events.

I’m hoping to have this short story finished and hopefully published by end of the summer (early September), fingers crossed.

How to Write Disabled Characters

I also have another ebook I’m planning to publish this summer. This one is a non-fiction book for writers on How to Write Disabled Characters.

If you’ve watched my videos on my YouTube channel that I did a couple of months ago, you know I talked about the dos and don’ts of writing characters with a disability in those videos.

I’ve expanded on what I shared in those videos and created a short ebook for writers wanting to write disabled characters. My plans are to publish the ebook by late June, with pre-orders starting around June 7th, if all goes well.

So if you’re a writer looking for tips on how to write disabled characters, you’ll want to sign up for my monthly newsletters (form below), so you’ll get reminders for when the book releases.

How to Write Diverse Characters

The last project I’ve been working on recently is an online course for writers on How to Write Diverse Characters. If you’re a writer and if you’ve been wanting to write diverse characters in your story, but you’re not sure how to do it or you’re afraid of getting something wrong, this course is for you.

In the course, we’ll go over the difference between writing diverse characters vs an own voices story, we’ll also go over the “token minority character” and how to avoid this, we’ll talk about what are diversity readers & where to find them, and more.

Currently, the first round of this course is being offered at the discounted price of $35. The registration deadline is June 30th. After that, enrollment will be closed until the fall, and the price of the course goes up. So if you want to get in from the beginning at a low price, sign up now! Go to the course registration page here.

Well, those are all the updates I have for you right now. If you want to continue to stay updated on everything I’m doing, sign up for my monthly newsletter below. You’ll get access to the member’s only section of my site where I have tons of resources for writers and short stories & sneak peeks for readers.

Until next time,
