I need to revise

Funny thing, I'm a year older than I thought. Nothing dramatic, I just stopped keeping track as well after turning 40. When I realized I'd actually be 44 this year and not 43, I pulled up this blog and reread my goals. Some of them need to be revised.

Why?

Because a couple of them were for a house I moved out of 2 years ago. So, I'm tweaking the master list to reflect some of those changes. I also didn't record when I donated blood in 2016 or 2017, but I was donating almost every 8-9 weeks until I started doing doubles in September of 2016. I'll put two dates I know for certain, then try to do better this year.

New direction and progress on Goal #5

Now that I've been home several days, I can report things are moving along for the re-release of my Magic Wakes series. We've got new cover art for the first three books! Take a look and tell me what you think. These were all designed by Tamara Hart Heiner who is also an amazing author.





I'll be re-releasing the first two in the series sometime the first week of November. Demon Rising is about half way finished, but this amazing cover has inspired me to get writing again. My goal is to have it out by fall of 2018.

It feels so good to be excited about writing again!

Blurb:

The Dragumon have been defeated, but the planet Sendek will never be the same.

When Talia and Landry travel to the planet Orek to discover how it combines magic and science, they find a new, anti-magical government. The Controllers have all the tech, weapons, and natural resources. On Orek, the magical outcasts beg Talia and Landry to help them rise up against their oppressors.

The two must decide whether to help save Orek or return home and save their own planet. Talia and Landry are torn apart by the conflicting missions. Talia knows what Landry wants, but if she gives in, she could lose what she loves the most.

It's Official! Talia's Sequel is with WiDo Publishing

It's official (actually it was official last Friday), WiDo Publishing has picked up Talia's sequel. All the paperwork is signed and they've announced it on their website. You can read the interview HERE.

Thankfully, we'll finish stage one of renovations on our house by the time I need to start working with an editor. I'm excited for that. It's possibly one of my favorite parts of being an author. That's when you get to take something good and make it shine. It will also put me firmly in Talia's world so I can get back to drafting book three in the series. I REALLY want to get the first crummy version on "paper" by the end of the year. With hard work, and some luck, I can get that one out in a year instead of two. That's my goal anyway.

Progress on Goal #5 Talia's Story

I've finished a couple of revisions of Book 2 in the Sendek Saga. It's now with my publisher. That's progress! I'm waiting to hear if they need more revisions or if it's close enough to work with their editor.

I'll keep you posted, but until there's news, here is the blurb for it.

The Dragumon have been defeated, but Sendek will never be the same. Lines are being drawn between those who can work magic and those who can’t. Talia and Landry Sutton have a plan to create a Mage Council to govern the use of magic. They hope it will keep the peace long enough for them to travel to Orek and learn how Jaron’s world successfully combined magic and science.  
Talia hasn’t dreamed for months, but on the eve of leaving for Orek her nightmares return. She knows they must make the journey to discover the truth about the dragons, how to use magic and how to bring peace back to their world. However, if they do, she could lose what matters most—Landry.
