Ricardo Henriquez's latest update for The Catcher’s Trap

May 16, 2016

Hello Friends

Things are quiet in the production front. With the book thoroughly edited and the front and back cover fully designed, we are now concentrating on details like interior design.

We will start marketing efforts probably late summer, building toward the release of The Catcher’s Trap on November 8th, 2016.

In the meant time I want to share with you my work on the sequel to The Catcher. So far I have written half of the book’s first draft (around 37k words) this is a significant achievement, but it is still far from the finish line. Just to give you an idea, I went through 4 drafts of The Catcher’s Trap before I submitted my manuscript to Inkshares and two more after edits.

Even though my experience is limited to only one and a half novels. I have to say the first draft is the most fun to write. So many ideas are swirling in your brain. So many decisions to make and so much world-building to do.

Worlds Walker –so far—is heavier in Fantasy imagery than The Catcher’s Trap. There is more magic and more mythical creatures, which is quite fun to write.

Worlds Walker won’t go into funding mode until The Catcher’s Trap is out. But I invite you to follow the project here.

 I also wanted to recommend for you to consider pre-ordering Scribbles, from Tabi Card. This is a collection of short stories from the futuristic and fantastical, to the ordinary and magical.

Tabi is a great writer. I assure you, you will enjoy her book.

The book has only three days left to reach 250 pre-orders, so please consider supporting it today. Click here to pre-order

That’s it for today, have a fantastic week.
