Writing Updates for November 2015: An Alien Invasion, Sorrow, and Blurred Lines

Hello, again! Thank you for supporting the release of Enter The Vortex Vol. 4: Surreal Tales of Horror and Fantasy last week. As I previously mentioned, Volume 4 will be the last installment in the series. If there is notable interest, I may return to it in the future, but it will be dormant for now. Don't fret, though, I have plenty of new and creative ideas to push.

First and foremost, as I teased last month, December's release will be an interconnected-anthology about aliens. Sort of a spiritual successor to 10 Days: Undead Uprising, Project: Invasion (a tentative title) tells ten interconnected short stories to tell the tale of one large invasion. The main focus, like most of my books, is horror. I've also taken some influence from some of my favorite alien films, like Alien and The Thing. The book is nearing completion and should be available for pre-order in early December and set to release on December 14, 2015.

I've already scheduled my release for January 2016. The first book of the new year will be a mixture of horror and drama. As I've said a million times, I've always felt drama amplified horror when the genres were combined. Tragedy can conjure true terror. With this book, tentatively titled Project: Melancholy, I aim to create something very effective on several levels. The book is currently being proofread. Keep your eyes peeled for more details during my monthly updates.

Blurred lines? What is that supposed to mean? Well, recently, I've started to delve into longer prose. So, starting February 2016 and moving through the rest of the year, you can expect a barrage of novellas and novels. While writing and conceptualizing these new stories, however, I have found myself at odds with, well, myself. I'm seeing blurred lines. I want to deliver unforgettable experiences, but I can't seem to find the line between acceptable and taboo. I have disturbing scenes planned, but I'm afraid of alienating my audience. I don't plan on removing or changing anything, but it's something I had to get off my chest. What do you think? As a reader or writer, do you believe there are lines we shouldn't cross?

Anyway, thanks for reading. Your readership keeps me going during my most pessimistic times. I hope you are enjoying the books. Please don't forget to leave reviews if you enjoy something - reviews are incredibly valuable to independent authors.

Until our next venture into horror,
Jon Athan
