Plan your year

Plan your year

Posted by admin | January 8, 2019 | Uncategorized

It’s time to plan your projects — what do you have scheduled for the year?

Contest results (Characters, Creatures, Places or Things)

Boy oh boy, this was a lot of fun! Here’s a list of people and the books they will appear in:

  • Vicki Bigan is a guard named Biggan in Gifts from Thol.
  • Margaret Rustan is a coyote in Tothars.
  • Donna Dilhunt is a judge in Tothars.
  • Rita Richards is in charge of Nana’s Hovel in Tothars.
  • Gloria Jean Minnick is now Minnie in The God Child.
  • Patsy Lou Bayliff is a Plotal named Ystap Olu in Gifts from Thol.
  • Mike Gibson/Gibson Michaels will be a character in Nutty Chocolate.

I will let people know when the unpublished books they will appear in are available.

Book your editing project

We’re at the start of a new year, and you may have been working on a project through the holidays.
Now’s the time to book editing projects. Send me an email with these details so I will be prepared when we talk:

  • Synopsis of your book project
  • Number of words
  • Number of pages
  • The first chapter
  • Your phone number
  • Your time zone (I’m EST)

I’ll be able to provide a quote and let you know how much time I will need to edit your project. Also, if you know you will have another project within a few months from now, you can book an approximate date and we can wiggle the timeframe until your project is complete.

Remember, I edit fiction (all genres), nonfiction, websites, manuals, white papers — if it has words, I can edit it with one exception: poetry — this is not my expertise and I would be doing you a disservice to offer to edit a poem.

Tothars will be out the door soon

I finished editing. Now I’m waiting for my critique group’s eagle eyes and sharp slaps.

Currently the book is 70,074 words and 318 pages.

Expect to see the new cover soon. The book will launch in the 1st Q of 2019.

The God Child and Nutty Chocolate

The God Child is proving to be a challenge. When I set out to adapt my screenplay into a novel I figured it would be a piece of cake. I’ll have to sift through it layer by layer.

In the meantime, I’ve been working on the outline for NuttyChocolate, book 4 in the Alcott Family Adventures series. I have so much fun creating havoc for that family! I know you’re going to love this book.

Tidbit of information:

Books don’t write themselves. Roll up your sleeves and dig in.

Bragging about your accomplishments may alienate you from most people.

The TV is poison to the brain unless you watch educational material (historical, scientific, spiritual).

Calling all helpers!

Would you be willing to do me a huge favor?

I have compiled a list of all my books, including the ISBN numbers.

If you are able to lend a hand and approach your library and/or bookstore, please email me and I will send you a PDF of the list.

You can print the list or email it to your librarian or bookstore acquisitions person.


I’m on Patreon!

Help me stay afloat.

Need an Editor? Look no further!

Let me edit your book. My 34-year background includes mystery, science fiction, fantasy, white papers, manuals, website content, user guides.

Reasonable rates. Fast turnaround. Send me an email with your first chapter, your phone number and a good time to talk about your project. I’m EST. Have your word/page count handy. I’ll give you a quote.

Need a logo, book cover, business card or postcard?

I love to refer people! Brandon White and Marcha Fox are two service providers for great looking graphics. You can see their services and prices here:

I hope you have a great month. Until we meet across the keyboard again.

Onward & upward!
