You may have been wondering what I’ve been doing with my time. After all, my last book came out in May of last year, so have I done any writing? You bet I have! But after finishing a project as big as the undying/crossing/fading set, it’s kind of hard to start something different. My first attempt was working out quite well, but for some reason, I lost interest. Not that it’s not a good story or a good set of characters (it was and they are), but for some reason, it just wasn’t flowing. Writing is very much a creative process, and I was having trouble keeping the words coming.
So, for now, I have “shelved” that project. It’s not gone, and it’ll likely be back. But I needed to do something that I had more passion around. Check www.tomcreek.com for the shelved project.
So what’s the new project? That’s a little bit of a secret, of course. But I can tell you this: it will follow the life of the main character from age twenty through age 55, as he starts and ends up running the world’s largest company, and how he tries to balance his personal and his professional lives. And it looks like it’s going to be a substantial book, so it may take a while before you get to read it. If I get enough requests, I may start posting some previews…
