And here’s a link!
This is the first book I’ve ever written. I’ve finished drafts of novels before, mostly a crappy horror novel back in the late aughts, but this is the first one I’ve ever published. It’s rough – I didn’t have the money for proper editing – but I’m proud of it. I wrote the first and second drafts in just over two months, with that second draft being a complete rewrite. That’s the most words I’ve ever written in… ever. Crazy.
I started writing The Ghost and the Shifter today, the follow-up to The Ghost At His Back. I’m really happy with the progress I made, knocking out a first chapter I’m pretty okay with. Hopefully I can keep up this pace, though I’ll be taking a small break when E3 comes around in June. I’m hoping to have the central trilogy of novels done by the end of the year, with plans to start work on my fantasy series next year.
While I wait on my advance readers and the final edits to the cover (and to avoid doing real work), I figured I’d share some of the music that helped inspire and shape the direction of the Rankin Flats novels. This is a growing playlist and will be added to throughout the years as I write more and more. Enjoy! It’s an eclectic list and I purposefully only included one song from each artist (for the moment – that might change later), but there were multiple songs that could have qualified here from John Carpenter, the Black Keys, and Blackmill. There’s no particular set order in which these should be listened to, so have at them.
Hey folks, welcome to the blog of Cameron Lowe, writer of the Rankin Flats supernatural thrillers. Here you’ll find ramblings about the writing, releases, and probably a lot of pictures of my pug. The first novel – the Ghost At His Back – is set for release before the end of May. Bear with me as I figure out how to blog again. It’s been a while. Feel free to leave comments and questions below, and if you’re reading anything new and notable, always feel free to share it here. I love me some good book recommendations.
