I auspiciously began The Guardians Series under the temporary title of Stop Motion one year ago in January, 2017. About four months ago, I became lost and confused about where this series was going and what it was supposed to be. On top of that, I over thought my super power system and made it too cumbersome and complicated to wield adequately in the story. In my frustration, I switched gears and focused on other projects that pulled my attention away from Quinn and Blake.
Other Writing Opportunities
One of the other projects is the Nitraxian Galaxy Saga. I focused on this series (and finished book one) so I could incubate ideas and read some super hero books. I also wrote and published Catholic and Gay and overhauled my company site Purple Spekter™. It now hosts books written by some of the best gay authors I’ve enjoyed I think my fans and friends will enjoy. Sometimes, a little break is all one needs. With better focus and direction, a little rearrangement of the existing Guardians text, I’m back at it and hope to start publishing the stories this year.
