Happy Monday

Hello everyone, Mondays are going to rotate between “My Favorite Reads” and “What am I Reading?”. Since last week I posted a review of my favorite book, this week is about my current reads.  Right now, I don’t have anything exciting on my nook to share.  I’m reading two books: “A Quest for Heroes” (Book #1 of the Sorcerer’s Ring) by Morgan Rice and “Book Launch” by Chandler Bolt.

Novel Update

One of my goals for this blog is to use it to keep everyone up to date on what’s going on with my novel.  As many of you know, I completed the first draft of my fantasy story at the end of November.  I read a lot of advice about what to do next, but the prevailing theory was to put it away for a bit, work on something else, then come back to it fresh.  So I set it…

Introduction

Since I was a little kid, I always wanted to write, but it wasn’t until recently that I put any effort into making that happen.  I have attempted many projects over the years, most of which were abandoned before completion.  But in the summer of 2016, I stumbled across a short story contest with a theme I could relate to.  I wrote out a piece I felt was pretty good, and I asked a friend of mine (a poet) if…
