I just wanted to bring you a quick writing update. I currently have two books in progress, both on opposite ends of the spectrum. So here’s the latest about what’s happening on my desktop.
Out of the Ashes is FINALLY in the hands of my critique team again. They had looked it over, shot holes all through it, and had sent it back to me back in April. Due to a long-term bout of mono, four kids, and about 25 pages worth of revision notes it took me a while to tear the novel apart and put it back together again. Lol I now know how poor Humpty Dumpty felt! I was beginning to wonder if Ashes would ever become a complete story again.
I did a complete overhaul on Ashes. New layout. New scenes. New chapters. But still with the same solid message: All healing comes through Christ. I can’t wait for you to get your hands on a copy. If you haven’t started the Ancient Words Series yet, you’ll want to read them in order so go grab a copy of my first two novels and enjoy them while we finish up Ashes. For those that are caught up…well, we’ll learn how to be patient together. 😉
We’d really covet your prayers as my team looks over the revised copy. They need a blessing on their time and discernment. I want to bring you a story that you can’t put down or stop talking about when it was over. And I can’t do that without my critique team and the efforts they put into pointing out my flaws. 😉 And if I sound bitter towards them, I’m not. I LOVE my team. They have a difficult job and they do it with grace. And I really do appreciate them.
In other news, I had announced a brand new series to you a month ago. I’m still in the early stages of the newest manuscript. I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this month. Lord willing, If Only it were Yesterday will grow and swell. Already this month, I’ve added 4,835 words, bringing Liz’s story to 12,625 words so far.
