Coming Back to Life in Time for the Holidays


I'm finally starting to feel like I'm almost back to normal. For the last month I have been fighting a horrible cold. I've been exhausted and this past week I finally hit a wall. The doctor sent me to bed for a week. Turns out, it was what I needed.

The sad things is, I have to admit there is no way I'm going to get book three written, edited, formatted and on sale before Christmas. It's just not going to be possible. I have been writing but it is going slowly.

I truly wish I had more beta readers to let me know what they think of the direction I'm taking this story before I spend a lot of time and money getting it ready for print. I like it but I'm not sure if it is as easy to follow for readers as it is for me. I like where it's going, I just hope you, my readers, will too. If you are interested in being a beta reader, just drop me a line by clicking here.

In the meantime, to keep you all entertained while I finish up book three, you can always check out the third book in the series from award winning, best selling author, Scott Harris. Bourbon & A Good Cigar is on sale now on Amazon.

I am one of the 52 friends who contributed stories to this collection. My story, Getting Hitched, was a lot of fun to write. I hope you like it. It will tie into my Into the West series in either book four or five.

I'm going to be posting the details this week for the next contest. I want to increase the people on my mailing list so I'm going to have people sign up for one entry into the contest. I'm trying to figure out how people who are already on my mailing list can also enter. As soon as I get the details figured out, I will post the video announcement.

I think that is everything:

1. Feeling better

2. Pushing back book three release

3. Bourbon & A Good Cigar now on sale; includes my story Getting Hitched

4. Next contest coming this week

Now it's time to get some sleep. I want to get the chapter I'm working on finished tomorrow. I also want to get as much writing done as possible this week because I doubt I will get much done over the holidays. This Saturday is mine and P.R.'s five year anniversary, then we'll have Christmas, and we will be celebrating the New Year out at a party in Old Town with another couple. It's going to be a great couple of weeks.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah (a little late), Happy Diwali (also late), Happy Kwanzaa, Blessed Yule, or any other holiday you celebrate this time of year!

Just wishing you all happiness!!

Stephen
