The completion of the Gabby Wells storyline will take me some time. A couple of years. Not including the time it took to convert screenplays into novels that have since been tossed, just getting the novellas written, edited and published will probably take a year in total.
We’ll release the novellas, one at at time, every three months. That will give me a year to write as many of the Gabby Wells novels as I can, and we plan to release those every three to six months, depending on how fast I can write them. If I could have all of those novels written by the time the first novella is released, that would be great. That’s a lot of words in a short period of time, but that’s the goal.
But, I do plan a writing life after Gabby Wells.
Up until my adventures in novel writing, I expressed my creative storytelling through screenplays. I did that for over 20 years and many of those stories I plan to turn into novels.
The first non-Gabby story I will probably write is based on a screenplay I wrote called Redemption. It’s a horror story and my wife’s favorite thing I’ve ever written. I plan on that being the first in another series of books that involves a nun and modern takes on horror themes.
Plus, there are non-series stories I’d like to tell too. I have another screenplay called Martyrs that I would love to turn into a novel. It involves a young girl stuck at her father’s office as it is overrun by terrorists. And a novella from a screenplay called Forgiven, about a young woman driving across the country who happens stop at a gas station while it’s in the process of getting held up.
And there’s more. A lot more. Many, many stories.
I just hope I have time to write them all.
