Writing Update



The other day I revealed the cover for my forthcoming book "The Box". (If you didn't see that post, go to the Home or Author tab and check it out.) As I'm sure you can tell by the cover itself, I've moved away from the paranormal thrillers I have been doing and am working on a scary tale. It's another story genre I've always been fascinated with so writing one of these kinds of stories seems like a natural progression for me. After taking a few weeks off from writing over the holidays, I'm currently working on Chapter 5. I'm hoping to complete the book sometime in either late March or April. Time will tell! I will publish a teaser sometime next month, so stay tuned for that.

Another project I'm currently working on is re-editing "The Station". As a self-published author, it's easy to miss a lot of little things that can distract from the story itself. In my usual haste to get my completed work out, I often don't take the extra time to go over the story with a fine-tooth comb, and, as a result, the story can look sloppy here and there. Also, up until now, I've been using Word to write my stories and when I convert it to the required html format for download to Kindle, the spacing and indents get messed up. I've remedied that as well by using a new program that will convert my text to html without any issues. I'm not going to re-edit my first two books as it's a time-consuming project, but I want to make sure my 3rd effort looks as good as it deserves.

I'm also working on a couple of short stories that I'm planning on submitting to publications at some point. One of them has a supernatural bent, while the other is more of a true-life, very dark, and gritty kind of story. I'll keep you posted on what I do with these as well.

As you also saw from yesterday's post, I'm still interested in poetry. I had started, early last year, a book of poetry that I plan on selling for Kindle for a mere $0.99. I've never been an avid poetry writer by any means, but lately I've felt the urge strike up again, so I'm going to publish tiny snippet poetry here and there along with one of my photographs.

So, that's the latest with H.A. Larson in the Author World.

Have a fantastic day!
