All I am waiting on now is for the editor to get back with my second manuscript. Once that’s done and the changes are made — I AM DONE WITH “VALENTINA’S FEAST” AND IT’S GOING ON SALE!
I am really happy about this — I also realized I’ve written four books with a fifth shortly on the way and I am working on a sixth one right now (haunted house if you can believe it). By the end of this year, I will have written four books and maybe have them all published — being really optimistic about that, but I’ll have three of them out there for sure.
Maybe this is the year things turn around for me in a literary sense?
In other news, I have finally settled down on a haunted house story so I can finally say that watching that Ghost Adventures marathon was really research. Haven’t settled on a title…or cover art…but I am trying a different approach this time and mapping everything out. Outline, equipment lists, maps — the whole nine yards, in hopes that this will help. When I tend to write, I don’t stay very specific when it comes to locations, maps and other things like that. With this story, since it is a “closed set” (no one can leave the house for three days), I want to make sure that I keep everything in line. Most of my writing is done with a loose outline in my head and “ice cream” scenes already there. Going to see if this works. If everything is copacetic, look for a Hallowe’en release. If not…well…maybe next year.
There is nothing else really going on. I’m just happy that I’ve got one book finished, going to have a second one done on the heels of it and might have a third and fourth done by the end of the year. I feel like this is going to be my singular breakout year.
Thanks for reading, feel free to grab a book or two to the right and keep an eye on that list. It’s going to grow. 😀
