Nervous and Excited

I am both excited and nervous about my next book, God's Gift, coming out. In it I present Christianity in a positive light and a way of life for the characters. For them, it is not a religion. As the story unfolds many truths are revealed, questions are asked, and it is my hope, that those who read the novel, find questions to ponder.

The story is told from both the viewpoint of  Major Larry Henry, the oldest brother and his sister Dr. Susanna Gates. Their younger sister Jeanie is in it as well and brings a light heartedness in what is both a dark time and a new beginning.

The discoveries made shock them, yet do not alter their perception of what is truly right and how great and wonderous God truly is.

Last of the edits done for Different Dragons 2. Whew! Worked over eight hours my last day off to get them done and sent back to the authors.

Then, I contacted Bryan Thomas Schmidt and asked to reprint a story he submitted for another anthology I edited a few years back. He said yes, so I zinged a contract off to him and got the latest version to include.

 Sunday night, I went to an artistic gathering at a church I keep loose ties to. Got to hear a great speaker and meet some new writers and artists. My editor ear is always looking for new talent. Didn't really find any possibles, but you never know.

Madly Tackling Edits

Been a crazy week with the holiday and then a change in my work schedule.

I'm madly trying to finish editing the last few stories for Different Dragons 2. Got four done on Sunday and will be completing the rest on Friday.

After that, I will tackling edits for God's Gift, which is scheduled for release from WolfSinger later this year.

I'm also hoping to be a guest at the Myths and Legend Con in August. More on that as I receive details.

A side note, I'm rewatching all the Harry Potter movies and having a great time watching the characters and actors grow up.

Busy, busy, busy

Good week for writing and editing. Finished up a new story for a charity antho and submitted it. Name of it is : Tails from the Front Lines. Stories about soldiers and their dogs. Mine was titled Pack Rule,centering around a young woman and her wolf in the not tool distant future after a natural disaster pretty much destroyed the planet.

Also got two stories edited and sent back to the authors. Had some edited stories come back in. Already know I will be spending much of my upcoming three day weekend getting the rest of the stories edited and back to the writers for final approval.

Am also hoping to get some writing done as well. I still have several projects to complete by the end of the year. Going to be a push, but I will get it done.
