When You Write Two Books in One Year . . .

Friends! I come bearing a book update! (Because I know you were all white-knuckled at the edge of your seats waiting for one….of course.Β πŸ˜‚)

So, yes, the title of this post is deliciously accurate. In about a week, I will be able to say I have officially written not one, but TWO books in a year. So. Crazy. Exciting.

Let’s recap.

In the beginning of January 2021, I started writing Fate of a Prince, a YA magical fantasy inspired by a Christmas song (πŸ˜‰). The synopsis is as follows:

In a land controlled by the power of four immortal sorcerers, a young prince learns that he was chosen before birth to be among those sacrificed to the usurpers.

Lance always hated the sacrifice – now, having learned of his fate, he despises it all the more. And that his own parents could have marked him for death is unthinkable. There seems to be no hope of circumventing the decree . . . but his servant isn’t willing to accept that.

Kyden is a restless, nimble-fingered sorcerer, running from his past as fast as he can. He never planned to wind up indebted to the prince and working as a servant, nor did he plan on counting Lance as a friend – a friend he is not willing to watch die.

Then, on January 25th, I released my debut novel, the YA fantasy Promised Land.

I finished writing Fate of a Prince in just a couple months, and then set it aside to plot new ideas, outline the sequel to Fate, etc. Well . . . that outlining went pretty fast. And I started writing book two. Then I stopped. Took a break. Wrote other things. Edited lots of music videos.

Finally, I went back to it.

And . . .

. . . it’s almost finished.

*cue excited screaming* *don’t mind me* *just another excited author*

But alas, I can’t give you any details yet. But I CAN say I’m about to get Fate of a Prince back from my first editor, and then I’m going to be cramming to get it all done in a couple more months (while book two collects dust *cough*) AND THEN . . .

I can give you the release date. ‘Cause I actually already know it. πŸ˜‰ I just can’t announce it until I’m 100% sure we’ll be ready.

So, while I get back to work, tell me what you’re working on! New WIP? Editing? Publishing? Let’s chat!

  1. Eeek! That’s so exciting Hannah! I can’t wait to hear about your second book when it’s ready! (I’ll be standing by with a feather duster so you can dust it off after editing Fate of a Prince) πŸ™‚

    Wait, you also edit music videos? Cool! Do you have a youtube channel?
    Also, are you going to do NaNoWriMo this year to help wrap up your editing/writing?

      1. Alas, no. November is usually busy for me, what with the upcoming holidays. πŸ™‚

        I look forward to seeing your channel! Thanks for the link.


  2. Okay, I just saw your videos for Narnia (Stand by Me) and Star Wars (Born For This). Wow! Those were just epic!! I really loved how you put it all together! Great job!!
    What software do you use to edit the videos?
