We see such division in the world these days, but when I’m online with my blogging friends and fellow authors, I feel unity. I’ve received much kindness and help from many in these communities and want to give back in at least some small way.
So, I plan to have guest posts once a month. It’s my intention to make this a safe place for people to talk about what they’re up to, share about their work and get to know one another. This is not just for authors, but also for those who would like to meet more bloggers.
In the meantime, here’s what I’m up to. I finally hit double digits on reviews at Amazon and received my 10th for Whit’s End. I also have 7 reviews on Goodreads. A total of 17 is not too bad for a debut novel. I’m forever grateful to those of you who took a chance on reading my book and the time to review it. If you haven’t read it yet, you can click HERE or on the book cover on the right to check it out.
I’ve been struggling with writing my next novel. It’s a very complicated story line quite unlike Whit’s End. Although, very much like it in the way of telling the story from two different perspectives, with characters who are experiencing a similar situation. It’s about a 20th century prophet named Joshua and two of his followers. Each follower has a different take on Joshua’s message, and it will be up to the reader whose perspective they like better. It’s very difficult navigating a fictional prophet’s message without sounding preachy. It’s really a story about the characters who receive Joshua’s message.
I posted the prologue here a long time ago. I have edited it a million times over since then, so it’s merely a first draft. Once I finish the novel, I’m really going to need some beta readers to let me know if it sounds too preachy. Maybe someone who reads this might be interested in beta reading for me, but it won’t be for a long time yet. I’ve got a labyrinth of plot line to work through yet.
Next week I’ll be spot-lighting my first guest and look forward to introducing them. Hope to see you then.
