Otherlife Awakenings: July Update

Good evening everyone,

Awakenings is moving at a great pace right now. It’s currently sitting at 68,000 words. For comparison, Nightmares was a total of 120,000 words.

Many a late night writing away in the wee hours of the morning. That and bothering people on Facebook for opinions when I hit a story snag.

Otherlife Nightmares seems to have done pretty well. By and large most people enjoy it. Admittedly it’s quite a bit darker than the first story, but what is growth without conflict? 🙂

As I continue to work at closing this trilogy I begin to consider what I shall write next. I think when the time comes I may post a chapter 1 and back of book blurb for each of the two stories and see what people’s opinions are on the matter.

Before I close, a question has come up repeatedly that I felt would be worth answering here as well.

Runner’s world isn’t over.

Just this trilogy.

I do plan on returning to that world in other stories. Both from Runner’s POV and other’s. I just felt the need to tell a different story first.

Other than that, I hope you all have a fun and safe fourth of July.

  1. I have 2 questions if you don't mind; Will we be seeing an audiobook for Otherlife nightmares anytime soon (hopefully read by James Hays)?
    My second question is probably one you gotten oodles of, what game/games did you get your inspiration from?

  2. 1: I'm working with the narrator of the first book as we speak. We're hopeful to have this moving along relatively soon 🙂

    2: Everquest and Dungeons and Dragons primarily. A little bit of WoW and other things.

    Honestly, alot of it is just… late night ideas and thoughts.

  3. This is awesome news. Otherlife dream was such a pleasant suprise when I stumbled upon it. Can't wait to hear the second when it comes out. Book one is easily in my top 10 audiobooks of all time.

  4. Considering I have played rpgs for years and played rpg (books) before that… to finally stumble upon a litrpg like this is amazing. I love the idea of bringing in the GM side from the old days. Can't wait for the third book.. As well as any stories in this world.

  5. I'm flattered! Thanks 🙂

  6. I admit I plan on doing more than just 1 trilogy.
