Pulse of Light...and other stuff


It has taken several months, but my manuscript for Pulse of Light has finished going through critiques. Now it will sit for a little while before I start on edits.

In the meantime, I will focus on my new WIP - Night into Day. I will tell you more about this story soon. I will also do the beta reader edits for Whisper Willows, which I hope to release later this year.

Lots of writing to get done.

I pray you are busy doing productive work.

2015...What a Year!

A lot has happened this year. Even though I have so much more to learn, I have grown as a writer.

Self-publishing Stellar Reclamation was an adventure. I have had some ups and downs during the process, but wouldn't have it any other way. That is how we learn. :)

As I head into 2016, I will take what I have learned and go for it.

Expect to have some fellow writers come and visit with us.

Thank you for sticking around. See you in 2016!!!

Keep writing or doing what God has called you to do.

Stellar Reclamation...It's finally here!!

Can you believe it?!

Let me tell you, I had heart palpitations the night I clicked "publish" for Kindle, CreateSpace, and Smashwords. As I've mentioned before, this has been a huge learning experience. I'll be better prepared (hopefully) for the next book.

Stellar Reclamation may be sold in the General Market, but it's safe for young readers. It teaches daily lessons - respect for others and yourself, hope, forgiveness, etc.

Check it out!! :)

If you wouldn't mind, please leave a review. Thanks!!

Keep writing!!!

Update on Stellar Reclamation

Stellar Reclamation (MG Sci-fi) is almost ready!!

So much has been going on, and I'm sorry for not keeping up.

Here's the update.

I'm using CreateSpace for my very first self-publishing experience. Let me tell you, it is a huge learning experience. I have shed some serious tears over using their Custom Cover Service. The staff has been extremely helpful, but we've had some communication issues that cost me. :( BUT! (insert huge sigh of relief) We worked it out and I have approved the final cover.

Formatting was (still is) harder than I thought it would be. I had struggled to format the page numbers. I must give a shout out to all of my friends that tried to help me. Even though it wasn't perfect, we had them starting on the correct page. Things weren't looking the way I wanted, so I actually found that CreateSpace had templates. Thank you!! I still have some tweaking to do, but the formatting looks a lot better. I've uploaded a new PDF and now wait for them to send me a third proof.

I am praying this first book will be ready within the next two weeks. The Kindle version is good to go. After I get the paperback finalized, I will work on uploading it to Smashwords. And then...all versions will be released.

When the time comes for me to get my second book ready (actually should be now), I will be better prepared.

Thank you, Lord, for all of the resources available to writers.

Keep writing.

Let the Countdown Begin!!

I'm excited and nervous. The illustrator working on Stellar Reclamation will be done on June 30th. Knowing that in a few weeks, I will be self-publishing my first book is...Wow!

Self-publishing is a huge step and must be done correctly. In order for those of us that choose to venture down this road to succeed, we must set a high standard. The same we expect from a tradionally published book. Right?

I will keep you updated!!

I pray your writing journey is going well.

Keep at it.
