Hey guys, just checking in. Today I finished chapter four of Repercussions, so I’m 25% of the way through it now. Jake and Lana from Travelers are included in this one, and there’s more focus on Martin and Dylan as well. The main crux of the story however will revolve around Billy, Sarah, Giles and Sav. I haven’t gotten to that part yet, though I’ve had one little tease leading up to it. There’s also a surprise appearance by an old enemy they vanquished over two-hundred years ago that has them all incredibly worried.
Now, about the new story idea…
There’s this absolutely wonderful girl named Amber who’s become very special to me in the time since I first met her. She’s currently reading the series, and I’ve been talking to her a lot on Facebook. Her job is kind of annoying sometimes, so to entertain her I’ll talk as the characters now and then just to put a smile on her face. However, one day I decided to do something a little bit different. I had her pick a gender and a specific age range as the basis for a character, and then I proceeded to create a story based around that character. Now, not to blow my own horn or anything, but I’m really good at doing stuff like that, and what came out of it was the foundation for an entirely new story that could potentially turn into a series that’s completely unrelated to the Unseen Things series. This new story would revolve around a girl who ends up working as an assistant to a private investigator, and that would eventually lead them into a case that had paranormal aspects to it. I don’t know where it’ll take me since I let the writing go wherever it feels like it should, but I’m really excited about turning that into something. I may do that after I finish Repercussions, just so I can have a little break from the series to recharge my batteries a bit. I’ll see what mood I’m in when I finish writing Repercussions.
Anyway, that’s it for now. I’ll post another update when I have more to report.
