Another delay (!)

Posted in Lilith, Uncategorized, Update with tags , , on October 29, 2011 by Kaden Brown

Lilith will happen. I promise. Though the rate of progress is not anywhere satisfactory in my eyes.

Further more, a complete stop is about to happen as my studies suddenly take centre-stage again. Plus, on top of that there is a possibility that things may have to get completed from overseas… an Archaeological, Anthropological and Forensic Sciences BSc(Hons) course beckons at Bournemouth University starting September 2012. Whether or not I take up the possibility is still up in the air so no decisions on that yet.

What is true for me is that other studies here and now have to be dealt with over the next four to five weeks. That is what I will be focussing on, plus doing as many hours at work too. Maybe then I will be in a financial and temporal position to make a decision about where I’ll spend the next five years: Christchurch, Auckland, Sydney, Adelaide, Liverpool (may return to study at LJMU) or Bournemouth.

So for a while, here’s to Lilith.


A unified immortal world?

Now that I am writing Lilith and things are going along nicely, I am sorely tempted to cross-the-line and introduce characters from Vanguard Newborn. There are some similarities between the two worlds:

1. Both focus on immortal individuals.

2. The lead character in each book is female.

3. Sub-characters include witches, vampires, angels and the white-haired Si-kee.

I know it was not planned to write the second book as part of the Ashley Zetterburg Books of the Black Society, and Lilith certainly is not even eligible to be in the Black Society or any other Vampyre Council organization. She is a Dark Immortal. Human yes, but immortal.

So it would be an interesting world if some characters crossed each book series. After-all, some characters definately could cross the lines: The weird and awful smelling Si-Kee and the angels could easily appear in both worlds. They are friends with vamps, humans and eachother… I will decide later though. The concept is attractive – hugely.

In other news, a little reminder that my film ideas are still up for voting at, screenplays Sadie  and Dee Dee are available at Simply Scripts. I am deciding if I publish a 44 minute script (a follow-up episode to the Dee Dee “Pilot” script) to Simply Scripts. On the issue of screenwriting, with three film scripts in the works, “59 Harewood” (horror), “State of Trance” (thriller), and “Define Better” (drama about the pharmaceutical industry) it has been decided to cease script work for now to enable more work on Lilith to get done.

With other things also bubbling in the background (various courses and work) decisions about priority have to be taken.

Proceeding well with Lilith – though I really do have to stop writing at some stage and figure-out the plot.

I’ve been going by “the seat of my pants” and reckon I need to take some time out to get the intra-chapters better planned.

I am trying to have an exciting event happen every chapter… if that fails – afterall this is not a freaking action-thriller, it’s paranormal fiction with undead folk it’s not ther end of the world (for me). So the writing style and syntax has to meld just right. Continue reading
