The most awesome Lisette Brody is a huge advocate for indie writers and hosts lovely interviews on her website. And this week, she featured me! Check out the interview to learn a more about my writing and a few things about me: A chat with Autumn M. Birt
In other news, writing and editing is going well! I have three projects going, two writing and one editing, AND I should be announcing a new release this fall! Stay tuned.
If you want to know how I manage to juggle three projects, check out this post. If you want to know what I’m working on… well as I write this I am starting chapter 8 of Sparks of Defiance, book 1 of a new epic fantasy trilogy Games of Fire. Fans of the Rise of the Fifth Order trilogy will recognize the world and many characters in this new series. If you want to learn more, check out its page on my site here.
I’m also writing chapter 19 of book 1 of Friends of my Enemy: After the War. That is almost 2/3 of the way through the novel and this week I will pass that mark! Writing should be complete in late September or early October and then I’ll go on to editing while I write the final book.
Which leads me with my current editing project, a compilation of 11 short stories that are set before After the War and as a compilation are called Stories from the War. This is a dark, dystopian tale set in the near future. You can read the first story of the set, First Meeting, here. Editing on these should be finished by early September. Then they’ll be off to an editor with release hopefully before December! If you want to know when, the best way to hear is to sign up for my New Release Email List. Check out the page on the series Friends of my Enemy to learn more about the story.

“I loved two battle scenes in particular. The battle at the Temple of Dust and the battle at the Temple of Wind. Fire versus water. Air versus Earth. Thrilling!” – Futureboy 4 stars on Amazon
“I’m biased, because this is exactly my sort of book. But maybe that bias should make me more critical…but there is absolutely nothing to dislike about Born Of Water…We’re not simply reading about this quest…we’re there with them.” – Stewart Bint 5 stars on Smashwords
“I’m halfway through Rule of Fire and I’m already looking for news of the next book. I’ll admit to being a fantasy addict, which means I’ve read an awful lot of books over the years from Tolkien onwards and I can honestly say your storytelling and character development are up there with the best of them. Keep writing (please!).” – Ian Leggattby Autumn Birt
