NaNoWriMo 2017 is well under way and I’m doing my best to stay on top of it. After a very long day at an event: Christmas at the Monroe County Fairgrounds, I still managed to craft 2008 words.
A special thanks to all of the new friends I made today while at the event. I hope your journey into the world of Teradandra or the Chel & Riley Adventures is one that makes you smile.
It was also great to meet some old friends. Nothing does an author better than to have someone walk up to you and go, “Oh yeah, I got these books last Christmas and I loved them!” I had that happen today, really! I think I even overheard one of this individuals companions go, you’ve read and read the books several times. It was all I could do not shout out loud. Needless to say, when I explained to her that there was now a book 3, she was all excited and quickly secured her copy.
I also met with a couple of individuals in which some opportunities might open up for me to go into the schools and have an author talk with some elementary students. I will keep my fingers crossed.
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! Book 4’s first draft is complete! I was able to finish chapter 16 on Thursday. It will now have to sit patiently while I finish up NaNoWriMo before we can jump into revisions and production. So, maybe by Christmas or New Years I’ll be reaching out to my editorial army for your assistance once more.
With Book 4’s manuscript wrapped up, that means I’ve rolled straight into book 5. Yes, you heard that right. Today I began Chapter 1 of Book 5, Dayspring’s Heir (working title). This is it, the grand finale. I have so many exciting things planned for this book to conclude the series, I’m ready to bust. No spoilers today; however.
Thank you for your support. If you are new to the Silverwood Chronicles or Chel & Riley Adventures, please message me and let me know how you’re enjoying the books. I’d like to hear from you.
Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families.
Until next time, keep reading!
