Happy February everyone!
I can’t believe we are already into the second month of the year. 2019 seems to be on the same mission as the last several years . . . which is to fly by!
I hope everyone had a great start to the new year and an amazing January. Mine was full of twists and turns, but at the end of each day, I went to sleep with a smile on my face.
I have lots to update you on this month. First and foremost, after a lot of thinking and, admittedly, a lot of days where I drove my friends crazy with my indecisiveness, I’ve finally decided not to further pursue a contract with an agent or publisher for Through the Eyes of a Captive. There were many factors going into this decision that I won’t bore you with, but do know that I’m actually quite content and happy with this choice.
Of course, this announcement hasn’t been without some set backs, like I didn’t have the funds to secure the editor I’ve been wanting to use for so long that I almost wonder if I will ever get the chance to work with her, but it also has had some great moments too, like I’m finally able to share the cover that I designed for the book nearly two years ago. I will post a formal cover reveal on this website on February 23, 2019. If you just can’t wait that long, head on over to FACEBOOK to take a look. I have yet to set a release date in stone for this book, but hopefully I will have that by the March update.
With this decision made and now the book finished and waiting for edits, it was time to dive into the next project!
I’m still working on a title for this one, but I can tell you the time period and event that the story surrounds . . . drum roll please . . . the Titanic and 1912 Ireland. I have always, always, always wanted to do a book set around the Titanic. I have already drafted the outline and the first chapter is done. Yay! I may, or may not have, already even designed the cover (without the title, of course) because I couldn’t help myself. And, might I add, oh my goodness, you guys, this one has floored me. I think it might be my best and favorite one.
Aside from working on this new project, I’ve also been slowly diving into The Woman on the Painted Horse. I only have a year left on my contract with my publisher, so I’m already looking forward to revising it, editing it, and giving it a new cover (that of course, I already have) in order to brand it and finally publish it in the condition I want it in. This new edition will have more chapters and a better ending. I can’t wait!
As you can tell January was a busy month for me. I don’t think February is going to slow up, but I guess we shall see. I hope that you all have a great month and I look forward to catching up with you come March!
