Weekly Update

I’m settling into the school year routine. Bethany is back at college, and Gareth is at school all day. I love having large unbroken chunks of time to work on my writing. For the next couple of months Gareth has marching band rehearsal until 6:30 every afternoon, so I’ve got even more time than the rest of the school year. I’m going to try to put it to good use.

I’m working with a cover artist and beta readers on Nothing But the Truth, so expect to see it soon. I’d like to leave around a month between it and the Noblebright Fantasy boxed set release in October.  If people get back to me quickly, I may be able to get it out by mid-September.  Otherwise look for it in November.

Other than that, I’m focusing on my sci-fi romance.  Once I choose a pen name and get a new website set up, I’ll link it here.

PS: I’m running a quiet free sale of The Fuller’s Apprentice this week. I’m testing out Facebook ads, playing around with targeting them to different audiences. I expect most people reading this will have a copy already, but now would be a great time to recommend it to a friend you think might enjoy the Tevenar books.

Weekly Update

Hello, everyone. Sorry it’s been so long since I posted. Remember the part in my “About the Author” where I say that one of my hobbies is performing in amateur musicals? That’s what I’ve been doing. My church staged a production of “Mary Poppins,” and my whole family took part. I played Miss Smythe, the bank chairman’s secretary, as wells as singing in the chorus. It was lots of fun and lots of work, and we’re all happy and exhausted.

Gareth and Bethany both go back to school next week, so I’ll be back to writing full time. I’ve got a lot of different projects in various states of completion, and I’m still deciding which I’m going to focus on first. A high priority is going to be finishing the rough draft of Book 2 of my science fiction romance series, so I can start Book 3 in November for Nanowrimo. Those will be published under a pen name, because they’re definitely not YA, and I think it’s best to keep them separate. I’ll link to it here, though, so those who are interested can find them.

The grand finale: “Anything Can Happen.”

“Anything can happen if you let it,

Life is out there waiting, so go and get it,

Grab it by the collar, seize it by the scruff,

Once you’ve started living life you just can’t get enough.

Anything can happen, it’s official,

You can choose the super or the superficial,

Sally forth the way we’re steering,

Obstacles start disappearing,

Go on chase your dreams, you won’t regret it,

Anything can happen, anything can happen,

Anything can happen if you let it.”
