Happy Thanksgiving.

Here in the US we're having Thanksgiving. Most will be having a big dinner and fall asleep during the football game. I myself never really understood the attraction of the game but nonetheless to each their own. No, I'm not a football fan. My wife however is a Green Bay Packers fan. I've kidded her a few times about donning a Broncos or a Vikings jersey and then cheer the opposing team. For some reason she didn't find that very funny.
I'm personally very thankful for what we have. We have a roof over our heads, I’ve got a happy marriage, and all of the bills are paid up to date. Considering how the economy was it could have been much worse. More recently I signed two of my books with two different publishers, the second one should have the re-edits complete soon and then will be re-released. I’m already looking forward to what will be coming up in the next year and I’m glad I got to experience the whole traditional publishing process. It’s new, it’s exciting, and it’s a different process than all of the rest of my books have been.

So, what are you thankful for this year? I’m sure there’s plenty if you think about it.

Writing updates 25 November

I'm in between edits on another book that was signed more recently. It's coming along pretty well and the publisher seems to be happy. That manuscript has hit 52k so it's a full fledged novel. Soon, the edits and rewrites should be complete.

In the interim between edit rounds I've been building the story line to Inquiso. This is one thriller that will be very violent and yes there will be terrorists, nuclear bombs, and so far there is a lot of foul language in places. So far, on the initial bits the manuscript has hit 16k and I'm not sure quite how many chapters but they're all printed off so I can refer to everything easily. I'm not quite sure if I'll set it aside later so I can continue working on Ascendency Rising or not. Either way I'm looking at completing three novels this next year one of which is Etheusela which will be the sequel to Beyond Realms.
