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

Jul 18, 2018

Hello Friends,

I have not reached out to you via Inkshares in a while. These days, I send updates through my monthly newsletter, but since I noticed a flurry of new followers I thought it was a good time to send you a quick message. If you want to subscribe to my newsletter sign up here. It is a monthly thing, no spamming at all.

A lot has happened in the past months. I finished and delivered to Inkshares the manuscript for my second novel Bad Medicine, I teamed up with a group friends to create an audio drama called Mermaids of Merrow’s Cove, and I also finished the sequel for The Catcher’s Trap, Worlds Walker.

I still don’t know how Worlds Walker will be published, though. I learned the hard way that it is hard to run a crowdfunding campaign when the people who supported you with a previous campaign have not received the book they were promised yet –in this case Bad Medicine- so Worlds Walker will be on stand by for now.

I’m in no rush, thought. After publishing The Catcher’s Trap I learned that patience is a virtue an author must have. Few books become instant best sellers, few authors get movie deals after one or two novels. The process of building a career in literature is long but, so far, incredibly rewarding.

A project that I think you should check out is my audio drama. Mermaids of Merrow’s Cove is a weekly murder mystery. Think Law and Order SVU meets The X-Files. The series take place in a small coastal town in New England and it follows Emma Kersey’s investigation of a mysterious woman that may or may not be a mermaid. The six episodes are out and I recommend you binge on them. Visit my website for the many ways in which you can listen to it www.ricardophenriquez.com

I fell in love with audio drama. What started as a quick fun project to work on while I waiting for Bad Medicine to go into production, became a real passion. The team I worked with is eager to start working on a second season, so I’m getting ready to start writing a new script.

What can I say, my creative life is moving in many new and exciting directions and that feels great.

If you are a recent follower, check my projects on Inkshares. I’m always eager to hear feedback and comments from readers and authors.
