To Be [done] or Not to Be

I am proud to say I finished the first draft of Adjudication: Book 13 in the Metatron’s Army series yesterday.

This is the final book in the Metatron’s Army series, a project some 35 years in the works.

I gave myself permission to take the day off, which is really a joke because I work – in one form or another – seven days a week.

And have for decades.

I’ve been writing since I could write.  It’s effort but not “work.”

Yes, I get tired, but I love writing.  It’s in my soul.  It feeds my soul to write.  Especially fiction.

Antsy by lunch, I reviewed a number of options for getting back to work, evaluated the amount of passion energy required for each, and after several hours didn’t feel strongly one way or the other.

And I do have time which probably doesn’t help in the motivation department.

Finally, I decided to take a look at Metatron’s Legacy.

After listening to the soundtrack I’d put together several months earlier.

Pulling up my file window I noticed the date for the completed manuscript.  April Fool’s Day.  LAST YEAR!

Taking a break from writing by – WRITING!  I remember when the idea for Metatron’s Legacy took root.

I think I was working on Positional Play: Book 4 in the series.

I was mentally burned out and needed something to take my attention.

Being able to project myself into the future and write something unique with ties to the series that was feeding my soul fit the bill.

I couldn’t help but see the irony in the fact that a year after finishing Metatron’s Legacy,  I finished the series that inspired it.

Finished is a relative term.  The nature of this story means it will never really end though I am not intending to continue the saga past its used by date.

Repeat.  It’s ironic that just as a year ago, working with the manuscript this April will provide a mental break.

Crossroads.  I’m at a bit of a writing crossroads but have many options to choose from.

In other words, I’m not worried.  I used to worry about stuff like that but not in years.  I have faith.

Status Quo.  I have a couple of nonfiction projects as well, including two updates from a recent research trip.

I’m also dealing with a phenomenon that – technically – shouldn’t be possible.  I knew the physics and knew myself it shouldn’t have happened – ran it by my EE husband who confirmed it shouldn’t be possible – searched the Internet and found that though one other person claims to be worried about it – not that it happened – he is just worried – it isn’t possible. But it happened.  To me.

Story of my EMF life.

So, lots going on and lots to come, including a few videos I did but are in post-production.

And the beat goes on…

Projects Old and New

New_and_old

I’ve been hard at work on several projects, old and new.

 

  • Updates to elizabethmaxim.com

Ongoing as I put in place the framework for various new projects alongside current projects.

  • New merchandise available at the store

Fun t-shirts for the various projects, including Ghost Games, Dragon Core, and a curious cat waiting for a cool story.

I am finishing Adjudication, the final book in the series.

  • Just returned from a research trip that was not only productive, it was validating.

I will be updating emfconductor.com in the near future.

  • Created several new videos.

They will post soon.

I look forward to sharing additional information on the projects – current and upcoming – in the days ahead.

Stay tuned.

Metatron’s Army – Endgame

imprevI’m pleased to announce that Diagonals: Book 10 in the Metatron’s Army Series is now available for purchase.

Promotion:  Book 11 has been turned over to post production and will be available on or before June 1, 2019.

I am finishing the final draft of Books 12 and 13.

The Endgame of the series – Books 9 – 13 – are highly interrelated which has resulted in both challenge and joy as I’ve worked to wind the series down.

While I’ve enjoyed working on Metatron’s Army, I’m eager to get on to a number of new projects.

Details soon.

 

 

New Projects: Port Gallatan and More

pirate-telescope-clipart-0511-0810-2701-4045_Pirate_Looking_Through_a_Spyglass_clipart_image.jpgAs the Metatron’s Army series winds down, I’m working on what’s next.  With an eye toward future projects, I am making significant changes.

The series has been a lot of fun though I’m looking forward to the new projects.

  • The next book in the Port Gallatan project will be released in the not too distant future.

Release date being ironed out.

  • I have several additional books that will be part of the Port Gallatan family.

I will provide updates as appropriate.

  • I am in the final phase of location scouting for a new series.

Tying books to a location requires careful consideration.  Port Gallatan is a fun location for the books I have planned for that series, but it cannot support the needs of the new project.

  • I am in the process of redesigning the blog format for elizabethmaxim.com to better serve.

As this is an ongoing process, I ask that readers be patient.
