Starting Over ...

Well, so far my attempt to keep up better with my blog has failed miserably. I guess that's okay. I'm not going to be too hard on myself for that just yet. I am also in the process of transferring from one computer to another, so that's a lot to bear with (pun intended) to begin with.

One thing I really want to do is begin prepping my middle grade story, Encroached. I believe I am going to self-publish this one. At least that's what I'm thinking right now. For the most part, it is pretty much complete. I have a few simple edits to do, and I'd also like to redo the cover. The current cover has a grizzly bear on it, which I like, but the rest of the cover doesn't give it a middle grade feel. So anyway, that's what I need to work on.

I went to the doctor today for my annual physical. I have one of those doctors that likes to sit down and talk. I swear, I certainly can't say she doesn't give me enough time in the exam room. That's never been an issue. I think she'd sit there and talk for hours if she could. Anyway, during our conversation she asked if I was still making time for my writing. I said yes—I'm always thinking of new story ideas—but the fact is that I really haven't sat down and wrote anything in a long time. I need to change that.


  1. Good luck with your MG. If I keep getting rejections on my 2 MG's, I'm going to have to think seriously about self publishing, too. I really like my stories and I want them to get published. I just rewrote one of my PBs. I really like it so much better now. I'm going to have to start sending it out again.

  2. Good luck! Will you do it through CreateSpace or other venue?
