Previously, I’ve mainly written fantasy. I have manuscripts suitable for all ages. However, I specifically concentrated on children’s books – 8 to 12 years of age – over recent years. The only time I ventured into other genres were for short stories, although one of my first novel length manuscripts is romance (but even that has a fantasy setting).
In order to gauge where I’m heading, I have to know what I have to work with. Here’s a list of all my manuscripts, excluding short stories as I don’t intend to write them in the future.
Kingdom of Marlinor Trilogy
(fantasy for adults – needs planning as a trilogy and rewriting)
Book 1 – Whispering Caves
Book 2 – Windy Plains
Book 3 – Butterweed Fever
People of Miu Series
(fantasy for children aged 8 to 12 years – first two books written and edited; book 3 needs planning)
Book 1 – Cat’s Eyes
Book 2 – Cat’s Paws
Book 3 – Cat’s Whiskers
Stand Alone Manuscripts
Blood Red, White Fire (fantasy for young adults) – 22 chapters written of first draft
Isle of Cotti (romance for adults) – complete, 10 chapters rewritten in edit stage, second half needs replanning
Westmore Castle (fantasy for adults) – only four chapters written, needs complete planning and rewriting
The World of Jaishree (fantasy for young adults) – written as a short story that should have been a novel, needs replanning and rewriting
Mid-Summer’s Day (science fiction for adults) – fully planned, but not written
Sam & Arden (fantasy for young adults) – 4 chapters written, needs proper planning
Mirror Image (paranormal/horror for adults) – about 10,000 words of first draft left to write
Suicide: A Mother’s Story
Now that I know what manuscripts are in the system, I can decide what I intend to do from this point on. That, however, will be discussed in another post. Right now, I have some thinking to do.
