In 2014, I wrote the first draft to The White Arrow during National Novel Writing Month. The finished product was just over the minimum 50,000 words to satisfy the event’s requirements. It was the most writing I’d ever done in such a short period of time, and when it was done, I was a little sick of it. I stepped away from the book, and didn’t look at it again for months.
When I finally got around to re-reading it, in a half-hearted attempt to revise the work, I saw a lot that I liked, and a lot that I didn’t. What I had was the shell of a good story; a skeleton with very little meat on the bones. It was going to take a lot of work to finish it.
While the frantic pace of NaNoWriMo was incentive enough to rough out the book, fleshing it out was going to take a lot more work, and I wasn’t a full-time writer. It was too much to do at one time. So I’ve decided to break it down, and in the process, employ a distribution strategy that will engage new readers.
Each chapter of The White Arrow will be published here as an individual blog entry, free of charge. As I complete revisions on the book, you can read along. When it’s done, the entire book will be published electronically and available through most standard distribution platforms for your convenience, at a modest price.
So please read along, share, and send me your feedback. You can reach me at my e-mail address, or via social media. I hope you enjoy the journey, and I look forward to hearing from you.
