We are Getting Closer to Book Three!


So, I've mentioned I recently hired an editor, Greg Wood. He has all ready reedited books one and two for me (and corrected a few habitual mistakes I make). I have gone through book one, Into the West: The Orphan Train, and uploaded it to all of the sales platforms now and redesigned all the advertising for it (not to mention the amazing trailer Dianne created you can see in this blog). Now, on to book two, Into the West: A New Home.

Greg sent me his edits for book two several days ago but I haven't had a chance to look at it until today. I will be working on the edits and formatting them for all the different sales platforms and hope to have those live again here in the next few days.

I'm not sure how much time I will have to work on my writing Monday and Tuesday. P.R. and I have a meeting to go to in the morning on Monday and then I have to go shopping for supplies for Tuesday. Tuesday is P.R.'s birthday. I have big plans for this birthday and they could take a while.

The rest of my week will be pretty open. I have cut back the classes I'm teaching this week so I can focus more on my writing. I'm only teaching two classes a day so that will give me most of the day to write. My goal is to have at least a few chapters written by Friday.

So, now for a question, do you want to see hints at the story as I write it or do you just want the whole book when it's finished? I'm up for doing either. I promise when/if I do give snippets for you to read it will not be the major scenes. It will be part of the build up or the aftermath and you will have to use your imagination to fill in the rest, until you buy the book and read it all for yourself that is.

Let me know in the comments how you feel. In the meantime, why not check out my Facebook page and follow me there.
