The Visionaries Trilogy
Towards the end of the the two year development phase for Visionaries, I suddenly became acutely aware of the fact that there was so much more that I could be explaining to the reader as well as illuminating them with the progression of the story line.
If I elected to try and embed it all into the one book, then I felt it would make it too lengthy and moreover it would alter the pace of the story.
So I began to sketch out the ideas for a prequel which would explain how Magdalene, one of the key characters, has been living her life here on Earth. This would have a natural lead into the opening sequence of Visionaries.
That left me with the thought of 'well what happens next' as I was feeling more and more compelled to leave the ending of Visionaries as wide open as I could, so this fuelled the idea of writing a sequel.
I'm very pleased with my debut novel and am equally as excited and looking forward to getting stuck into developing the remaining books to form the Visionaries Trilogy.
I've elected to make a start on the sequel first, as this will be an easier book to write on the back of having completed all the research I needed for Visionaries. It's going to be called Planetary Union and I've released a teaser chapter on this page of the website. I'm aiming to publish the complete book towards the end of 2019.
The prequel will be called The Magdalene Years and this will follow her life from the time she arrives on Earth 2000 years ago to the events leading up to the arrival of Janithillon from her home world of Xethenia. This will take a mammoth amount of research to complete so I would anticipate making an announcement about publication towards the middle of 2020.
