Brief Mid-month Update

Fire is in Chapt 12!

If I keep going like this I'll be done by my self-imposed deadline of January. 

My Chapters though are shorter than what's in my first book. I only got a 100 pages right now and I should have more if I was writing the chapters like I did in my first book.  Oh, well. :)

Still haven't touched Florida or the short stories. I've thought about them but haven't done any writing on them at all. I still like the idea of Kindle stories set between the main books.  Deadly Sands, Deadly Flame, Deadly Waters sound good to me...

I'm looking for 2 beta readers. My usual beta reader's been too busy to read.  I usually send a chapter at a time to be read and commented on but since I'm half way through, I'd probably send what I got and want to know if the story flows so far. And If I missed anything.  I have spell check for everything else. :)

Anyone interested? A sneak peak at my book!  :)

Messenger is still on the back burner right now. I haven't figured out what to title it yet either. Any of you have an Idea?  Read Teaser 4 for a taste and comment here on your thoughts. 

I'm still not missing my TV as much as I'm missing internet. Having to go to the library to do online stuff cuts into my time on other things like writing. :)

Please check out my new Author page on Facebook and 'like' it so you will have the newest updates on what I'm doing and how far along I am on my book.

Book Cover for Fire

Fire is in Chpt 8!

I'm almost half way through the book. Earth had twenty chapters so I figure Fire will too. Though who really knows when you're a pantser! :)

Surprising enough I don't miss my TV. I do however miss the internet. It's amazing how much we depend on it. Oh, well, at least I'm working on my book. I'm also reading more so it's all good.

I still haven't touched the Florida story or the short stories. I need to keep working on Fire if I want to get it done before Jano. I want to work on Water and Air during Jano or maybe even a new story.

I haven't touched Messenger for awhile either since I've started back on Fire. I still need to think of another title for it.  Give me a hand...  :)

If you want a taste of Messenger, click on Teaser 4.

I've also updated the word progress of my books.

Teaser 2--is now Chapter 2 of Fire. I decided to add more to the front end of it. I changed a few things here and there but if you want a taste of Fire, click on Teaser 2.

Here's the cover for Fire. What do you think?

I plan to have all the books brown with white lettering. The symbols will of course reflect the element with both context and color.

I now got an Author Page on Facebook. Check it out. I will be putting updates on it more often than I do here.

October update

Fire is now in Chapter 5!

I sat down and wrote the ending of chpt 3 and did chpt. 4 in one evening. I no longer have cable so I have to do something with the time I used to watch TV. :)

I also do not have internet so my updates may be sporatic or however you say that. :)

Anyway, I'm back to working on Fire.

I haven't touched the Florida story or the short stories so I'm still only a few pages in on them. I'm thinking about calling the Florida story Deadly Sands---Sands standing in for Earth and Deadly because of the dead body that shows up almost as soon as they get there.

What do you think of novelettes between the books, available only on Kindle?

Anyway, I added another Teaser to this blog. The Protologue for the dragon book. It sets up the main story and introduces a character that doesn't show up again til later and explains the relationship between them.

Click on Teaser 4 if you want to read.

I still don't have a title for the dragon story, though I still think of it as Messenger, but the agent said I should think of a more exciting title.

So did any of you think of a name?

I did this on I just love that site. but I wish it had more dragon pix.

What do you think?
