Since the new year I have been working in earnest to finish up the follow-up to, "The Awakening" books with its sequel, "The Gathering." I'm happy to say that I have finished it... Well, sort of. I have done what us authors like to call (or perhaps it is just me) round one of finishing. What that means is that I have finished writing the story. Now comes the fun part (sarcasm, heavil
I know what your thinking. It's almost March, isn't it a little late to be starting the New Year? Well...kinda. The thing is, my first novel, "The Awakening: Part One" is turning one on March 1st and for me, it's like the start of a New Year. I am so excited about what I have going on this next year, I don't know what to start telling you about first! So I guess I will just start with what is happening first.

As an independent author, or even, just an author. There is so much work that goes into putting a book in front of a reader. There is, of course, the writing. This is the part of the work that is a joy. You have an idea, you take the time to expand that idea till it becomes a work of art.

After months, no years of hard work, I am on the verge of publishing my second novel, "The Awakening: Part Two." This is exciting to me for two reasons. The first being that the culmination of the story that I started with in Part One will be wrapped up in Part Two.
