I have been quiet lately about my fiction thriller for a while because I was enjoying my vacation. I have graduated and became an official Dentist more than a month ago, since then I have placed my first draft of the second book of the Psychs series with my two most critical readers. I, however, enjoyed my first and maybe last long vacation in my life before I start my rotation.
Writing is the only work I love to do and don’t think I need a vacation from, I have finished my second book of the series and during my vacation I started reading it as a reader and not as a writer, meaning I wasn’t looking for editing or vocabulary or anything that is roughly affecting the words and needed to be smoothed out, I was reading as a hard critic who is only looking for something negative in the story itself. I have finished the book and came up with this conclusion.
I can do better
Writers should always be flexible and resilient when it comes to writing their novels, they should leave their pride out of it. When you, the writer, or anyone else find a flaw in your words or ideas you must do what’s necessary for the sake of the story.
Which is why I decided to delay the release of the second chapter in the Psychs series, The Remnant. I have already started the new modifications.
What will happen is this, I’ll be keeping my plot, which was the doorstep to the third book of the series, and to have more of what I believe my story needs, I will be combining the second book of the Psychs series with the third book, and The Remnant will be a name of one of the book’s chapters… which means the title will change too.
So allow me to introduce for the first time, the new name of the second book in the Psychs series.
A word which means Devil. I chose that word because it has a nice ring to it, and I believe its tone will help pickup my story to where I want it to be. And because you’ve been too good, you will soon get to hear the Prologue. It’s already been written and the rough edges are smoothed, but I am just working on presenting it in a unique manner. The first time should always be special.
Another thing I’d like to mention is that I will be doing a book signing in the first bookstore that I have started selling at, and in which my old copies of my fiction thriller became a best seller where I live in Kuwait.
I will be introducing my new edition for the first time in a bookstore at That Al Salasil Bookstore (roughly translated ‘Of the series’), once I receive my new copies.
So as you can see, I will be very busy in the coming days. I’m glad the vacation has recharged me for what’s coming. It took me a while to reach there, and I couldn’t do it without the support I have received from all of my kind readers and from the help and advices I received from all the authors and agents out there.
Psychs is available in both Paperback edition and E-book edition in more than 33 online stores including:-
Happy reading everyone.
