Deadline

I am ashamed to say that after six years of writing, my goal to have at least one manuscript written every year has fallen short. In the year of 2013, I was not able to finish a manuscript. I have no excuse. If I did, however, I would say that for the good part of the year, my works were trapped on an unreachable device (my second laptop). It stopped turning on and I could not retrieve some of the manuscript that I had already started. After a few months, I tried to ‘pick up where I thought I might have left off’. Near the end of the year, I enlisted and was sent off to Basic Combat Training. I just finished Advanced Individual Training this last month. I have made a plan for the rest of 2014. I am currently writing Nicole 7 and Cursed Brothers II: Keeper. My new goal is to finish these two manuscripts by December 31st. This way, I can sort of say ‘this makes up for last year’. Wish me luck.

Miracle

Just in time for Christmas, the missing chapters from Cursed Brothers II: Keeper and Nicole Sastasha 6 have been recovered! I never want to go through something like this ever again. I felt so helpless. Now, however, I can piece everything back together. Still plan on seeing Nicole Sastasha and the Stone of Power and Cursed Brothers II: Keeper by Summer 2014. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Lost Works

Unfortunately, there still has not been any luck extracting the data on my dying laptop. I refuse to give up. I know that it is my fault that I am in this predicament. If only I had been able to back up every file before Windows refused to open. Currently, the last three-fourths of Nicole 6 – and all of Cursed Brothers II: Keeper so far – are in Limbo. You can call it denial all you want, but I know I will get them back. I cannot see the other possibility, nor do I wish to. Wish me luck.

Keep Moving Forward

Well, I did promise that it would not be another month before posting an update. Instead, it has been four. I am not trying to make excuses about why Cursed Brothers II: Keeper has not been published yet. This entry is meant to enlighten any who might be interested in the past several months. As you already know, I have a goal to write each of my manuscripts in one year. Cursed Brothers II: Keeper is not yet finished. My first desire was to have the publish date in the middle of October. It changed to November, but now I think it would be best to just publish in the right time. I will continue to write, but am not going to set an impossible deadline that will make me disappointed and doubt myself. Since I wrote last, we have had to move once more. The owners of the house we (my parents) were renting decided to move back in and gave us one month to move out. My sister and brother-in-law had room, so we are staying with them now. There are so many other things that I can place ‘blame’ on, but I just need some time to brainstorm more and write a good book late – rather than a bad book fast. By this time next year, however, I hope to have Cursed Brothers II: Keeper and Nicole Sastasha and the City of Aqua Utopia published. Also, Nicole 7 will be written – possibly Nicole 8 and the final part of the Cursed Brothers Trilogy. Happy Holidays,

Confirmation

I cannot believe how busy this summer was . . . and still is. Of course, that is no excuse for keeping to myself. Cursed Brothers II: Keeper is coming along nicely – and will be published by mid-October -, but I will not lie: it has not been very stress-free lately. It is hard to keep personal life out of my particular career. Well, life goes on. I promise it will not be another month before my next post. 😉

Submitted for Review

Nicole Sastasha and the Kingdom of Anasazi has been prepared for review in the Premium Distribution. Also, Nicole Sastasha and the Fire Dragon Disease still needs a change before it can be submitted, but the ISBN number has been received and assigned. Now, I will continue to write Cursed Brothers II: Keeper. My goal is to have it edited and and ready for publication by mid-October. 🙂
