What I’m Working On This Month
Hello! I’ll update this page every month to let you know what I’m working on.
Finished and submitted a short story for a magazine contest, but won’t know anything on its status until November. Also started a new short story called The Pirate’s Treasure which I plan to give away to those of you who sign up for my book club. The story has been fun and challenging to write! It’s a caper with a befuddled pirate who just can’t rid himself of his captain’s stolen treasure, no matter how hard he tries! I’m looking forward to having that ready for you to download for FREE in October.
Handed off the first book – The Cowboy’s Golden Cup – from my new chapter book series to my editor. Once the edits and revisions are finished with those, I’ll turn the manuscript over a proofreader and then, finally, the book designer and illustrator. Tales From Burnt Boot Creek is a chapter book series that follows the adventures of four friends who live, play and explore east Texas.
Working hard making revisions after my beta readers finished the manuscript for The Cowboy’s Golden Cup, book 1 for the Tales From Burnt Boot Creek chapter book series. Although I love hearing what adult readers have to say about the manuscript, the very best part is having kid readers!! My kid readers gave the manuscript rave reviews and kept asking their parents for book 2. This is the kind of praise every children’s writer loves to hear. So excited!!
