The writing is still happening and a lot of it! I’ve been so busy this summer that I’ve completely neglected to write my blog … is that irony? It sounds ironic. Maybe not. ANYWAY … Here’s what I’ve been up to in no particular order:
In February I started a new book completely unrelated to the Immortal Light series that I call LAMP. I finished it in April and it has gone through three intense edits and is planned for at least two more. LAMP is a young adult sci-fi book that takes place in the future and is a retelling of a very classic story. I’ll leave it at that. I’ve begun querying this book to agents, so please, please, please keep your fingers crossed that one of them likes it.
Sarah and I have been reading a ton this summer. I’ve already red and reviewed six books and Sarah had read a few as well. We’re looking to start a new book review blog. I’m going to invite my mom (who reads more than anyone in the world) and a few other close friends to participate, as well. So stay tuned for “The Haven Room Book Review Blog” or something to that effect.
Immortal Light: Through the Fire (Book 3)
I know a lot of you have been waiting patiently for this one. In fact, I think I’ve even received a few veiled threats if I don’t get it out soon, but I can’t be sure. The good news is that it’s well in the works. I’m a little less than 30,000 words in ( about 120 pages) and it’s going very well. The bad news is that I still have to finish it. The other good news is that I know exactly where it’s going. And hey, there’s even more good news. You can follow the word count by visiting my website and periodically checking the ticker on the top right. I try to update it after every writing session. My goal is 1,000 words for each session. When it’s up in the 120,000 range, you’ll know we’re close to the end.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement. I can’t express to you just how much you all mean to me.
