The 25-Day Novel Challenge: Introduction

Welcome to the 25-Day Novel Challenge! In this challenge, I am going to write and edit a 75,000 word novel over a period of 25 days without an outline. This challenge was inspired by a similar challenge by author Chris Fox, which you can read more about here if you’re interested.

For this challenge, I am going to write The Superhero’s Test, the first book in a brand new superhero series called The Superhero’s Son, the cover of which can be seen at the top of the post. It is the first novel in what is currently planned to be a trilogy, although if the series does well I could easily expand it if necessary.

During the 25-Day Novel Challenge, I will be blogging about it here every day. I’ll talk about how my writing is going and give insights into my process, plus offer various insights on my views on writing, writing to market, and the superhero genre in general whenever I have any worth sharing.

Once the novel is written and edited, I will publish it to Amazon as an ebook and enroll it in Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited ebook subscription service, where it will stay exclusive to Amazon for 90 days. I will also do a print version through CreateSpace and maybe an audio version, too, if it does well, which I expect it to.

At the moment, I don’t know when I will actually start the challenge, because I’m currently working on another book under my main name. Once I finish that book, I will dive into The Superhero’s Test and the 25-Day Novel Challenge right away.

If you would like to follow along or know when the challenge starts, just subscribe to my blog or subscribe to my newsletter below to be the first to know when the book is out:

Welcome to my website

Hi there,

My name is Lucas Flint. Or technically, it’s Timothy L. Cerepaka. Lucas Flint is just a pen name that I use for my superhero fiction. Ordinarily, I write epic fantasy/sword and sorcery under my real name, which you can find out more about here.

Anyway, this website will be primarily used as a place to announce new releases, as well as news about deals and anything else relevant or interesting to my Lucas Flint pen name. It won’t have a whole lot to it aside from that, but if you leave comments on any of the posts or pages, I will definitely see them and respond to them if necessary, so don’t be afraid to comment if you want to do that.

At the moment, there are currently no books published under the Lucas Flint pen name. But the first book to be published under the pen name, The Superhero’s Test, is scheduled for a summer 2016 release in ebook and trade paperback from Annulus Publishing.

If that interests you, please subscribe to my mailing list by either typing your email address into the box on the right side of the screen or clicking this link HERE to go directly to the sign up page. Newsletter subscribers are always the first to know about my new releases, as well as special deals and other content exclusively for them. My newsletter really is the best way to stay on top of my newest releases, so I highly recommend signing up.

That’s pretty much it. There isn’t much else to this site at the moment (although I will be doing a writing challenge in late April/early May here, so stay tuned for that), but if you have any thoughts to share anyway, feel free to comment below or contact me directly via my Contact page.
