Writing and Rewriting

I’ve decided to rewrite my book Immortal Longings… figured it would be better to do so now before really¬† many bought it… and while the plot will remain the same… I want the writing to be better… some have asked if it’s really because I want it to be better or because I don’t have a new idea to move past it… but the fact is I wrote a second book for it… and while I’m having to rework it a bit to make it sound better also due to a few complaints… I thought it’s not very likely that anyone would want to read it if the first book isn’t too good… and while I don’t think it was horrible… I realized that after just one semester in college my writing improved by leaps and bounds… and looking at the book now I saw how much it was lacking… and so I want it to be the best I can do… and while I hope to continue to improve and move on past it… I just couldn’t let it stand as it was… it bothered me too much… and as I mentioned it’d be better to fix it now before too many have read it than to wait till others get a hold of it…

Yet while I’m rewriting I’m, as usual, dragging my feet… When I finally sit down it flows right out… after all I do already have the whole story and know what happen to my characters… no writers block to worry about here… and yet still I’m a regular old slacker… I find it frustrating… especially when I see other writers talking about the word counts and their goals being met… I hate those people a little bit… and I just wish there was some sort of easy answer… like hey do this and that and *poof* your book will appear done and perfect… anyone got any advice on that? I’m just frustrated with myself… I mean I want to write this book and the next and a whole bunch of different sorts that aren’t even like this one… I look at my Word document… I stare at it… and then I exit and go do something else… or I get a few words squeezed out before caving in and going elsewhere once more… so sad…

Immortal Descent COVER REVEAL!!!

Immortal Descent by R.G. Dole

Coming… Eventually…

Okay so I was planning to wait until I actually had a more fixed date on when the book was coming out to share this… but I was too excited about the cover done by Eric Wilder who also does The Grimm Report… and had to share… but it shouldn’t be too much longer because it has been completely written… I’m just in the final editing stages…

This was originally named The Last Immortal… but that title got ditched for the way cooler Immortal Descent… anyway this is the sorta second book to Immortal Longings… it’s a future look at Eric Lupir’s life… and well I probably should also figure out a good description for the book… basically this is a couple of centuries after the last book ended… Eric is now all alone in the world… but Cynthia Weathers, a descendant of Gordon Weathers who helped Lucus and Lexi in pt. 2 of the first book,¬† is sent to find Eric because someone is killing off his descendants in a manner that seems vampiric… and yet there are no more vampires just as there are no more werewolves… but there are plenty of other paranormal creatures out there and that is what the Weathers family deals in… but even this is bigger than they can handle and so they have to go find the last true immortal on earth…
