Incarnators Week 1

After a couple long weeks where the editing process on Whispers of the Dead dragged slowly, I kicked my ass into gear and finished it early this morning (when I say early I mean early. Sometime after 1 am). Now all that is left for Whispers is to get it formatted and published. I am looking at an August 1 publication date (which was the day I had always been shooting for. So deadline met!).

I really wanted to be done with Whispers before we left for New York. I wanted to have all the editing out-of-the-way so I could enjoy New York with a clear conscious. This doesn’t mean I won’t be writing. Starting tomorrow before we leave I will sit down in front of the computer and begin cranking out the last book of the Dark Lands Trilogy. Its working title right now is Incarnators but I don’t expect this to hold. I will see if anything jumps out at me while writing (this is what happened twice with the second book).

I am really looking forward to writing this last book. The characters have been screaming at me for sometime to get their story finished. I will be introducing two new points of view in the next book. I am super excited about both of them. One of them is a minor character in Whispers of the Dead. One is a brand new character (for those of you who have read the first book I will throw you a bone. The new character resides in the Southlands).

Like with my other novels I will write about my writing process every Saturday. I won’t post any previews of the writing because I don’t want to give away any of the book cliffhangers. My plan is to have the final book written by the end of September. It will then go into heavy editing for a planned release of sometime in November or December. A lot will depend on how long the book turns out. I am guessing it will be the longest of the series.

Thank you to everyone who bought the first book and is waiting patiently for the next. Hold onto your seats because it is going to be a bumpy ride. I hope I can deliver a book you love. I feel like I am an infinitely better novelist than when I started this series. Now I just have to prove it.


Go out and get the first book if you haven’t already. This way you will be in th know. Plus, I will like you a lot (author pandering at its best).

About csdaley

C.S. Daley was born in California but has spent most of his life in his imagination. His first short story written in third grade, the now classic "Close Encounters of the Turd Kind," was sold to his next door neighbor for a quarter. The neighbor promptly demanded a refund. An unhealthy obsession with the writings of Neil Gaiman, Christopher Moore, and Terry Pratchett have left his mind warped and broken. He spends most of his evening swilling down coffee while tapping at a keyboard under the watchful eyes of his kittens. They are there to make sure he doesn't snap. He likes to write fantasy for adults and teens.
