What’s Up?

Hi.  If you were expecting exciting updates, I am sorry to disappoint everyone but things have been progressing slowly.  Book 2 in the second fantasy trilogy continues to move forward.  The first draft is about halfway done.  But now other projects have moved ahead of the novel.

The first project is thanks to my writers’ group, Club Ink.  We’ve all been assigned to pick a publication to submit a manuscript to and then actually produce a manuscript worthy of submission.  I’ve chosen to write, or re-write, a science fiction short story about a man imprisoned alone on a desert planet and what he does to stay alive and maintain his sanity.  The first draft is done and set aside before I do an initial revision.  And then it goes to the group for critique.

The second project I’ve decided to tackle is to write a script for one of my books.  I always wanted to see one of my novels made into a movie.   Finally, I’ve decided to do something about it.  I am told that I need a script to send around if I want something to happen.  So, I’ve selected War Party and given that I have no idea how to write a script, this project requires lots of research.  I hope I can get help down the road from someone who is an accomplished script writer.  I know someone who knows someone, that sort of thing.  We’ll see how that goes.

In the meantime, stay well and I hope you find great books to read.  If you do, post reviews and tell your friends.
