What's going on in the crazy world of R.L. Mathewson
Let’s see, first things first. As some of you know I took a medical leave a few months ago to take care of some of medical issues that were causing me problems and to focus on my family. Well, I got some things taken care of like a few dental problems thanks to an awesome dentist, but the other stuff like my ruptured disc is taking forever to fix because of the long wait to be seen. Kind of crazy, which left me with some down time.
When I took my leave I promised to write some short stories to keep everyone entertained. There was one minor problem with that…..I can’t do short stories. I tried. I really did, but every time I made an attempt to write a short story I came to realize that I would absolutely hate it because I would have to limit the storyline and squash the details and I can’t do that. So all of those short story ideas will be published one day, but as full length novels.
Moving right along, having down time does not work for me so I finally said the hell with it and decided that I would go back to focusing on writing and work my medical stuff out around it. So expect something this summer 🙂
A lot of you have been wondering about what’s coming next and if I would be continuing with the series that I have out. Yes, there will be many more Pyte/Sentinel Novels, NFH Novels, EMS Novels, Hollywood Heart Novels and the first Anger Management Novel will hopefully be out by the end of the year.
I fully planned on the next Pyte novel to be the next book that I published, but during my down time I started to play with a book that I started years ago. It was actually the first book that I ever wrote. It was Tristan and Marty’s story. I wrote the book which ended up being something like three hundred pages, swore up and down to myself that it was the best book on earth and then I read it to make sure that everything worked.
Halfway through the book I realized two things:
I loved the characters.
The book absolutely sucked.
So, I deleted the book, which was hard, and kept the characters. Every once in a while over the past couple of years I would play around with the book. A few months ago when I started to play around with it and this time I decided to keep going. Now the book is very close to being done and will be the first in the new paranormal series, Cursed Hearts. That will be out in a few months.
After Black Heart (The first of the Cursed Heart novels) is finished I will be returning to the next Pyte/Sentinel novel and then working on the next NFH novel and the first Anger Management novel, both of which are already started.
I hope this clears up any questions, but if it doesn’t please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
