Here's a little update from the weary author on the road to starting over.
I was happily traveling along the road of a published author...wind traveling through my hair...dreaming up plots for my next book. My characters rode in the backseat, encouraging my ideas. Sometimes a new character would hitch a ride, chattering in the passenger seat, convincing me why they'd enrich the story.
Then I got a flat tire and hobbled on the rim until the road stopped. Yep. I hit a dead end, dark forests on each side. And my rim was as damaged as my spirit.
But I'm a stubborn soul. I climbed out of the vehicle, motioned for my characters to follow, and traipsed through the scary woods, manuscripts in hand.
We didn't cross any wolves or gingerbread houses, despite my character, Ruby, insisting she wear a red cloak. We did come across a perfect home though.
I am happy to announce my novel, Jewel of Ramstone, was accepted by Totally Bound Group. (Part of Totally Bound Publishing)
I'm eagerly awaiting edits. Waiting is hard for me, so in the meantime, I'm continuing the Medieval Quest series. One of my favorite secondary characters from Jewel of Ramstone gets to tell his story in this book.
I've got a slew of work to keep me busy, as I tend to have more than one (or five) works in progress.
My diverse characters need a place to exist after all:
A contemporary romance about a paralyzed woman rebuilding her life.
Another fantasy about a lost soul with a broken wing and spirit who crashes into a Christmas forest.
I'm revamping the three books in the Magic Stone Series.
I'm also co-authoring yet another project. Woman's fiction surrounding the hi-jinxs between twin sisters while they attempt to save a bed and breakfast from foreclosing.
In my spare time I write story ideas on paper towels while cooking dinner.
