Final editing and proof of Book Three of Water Kingdom in progress. And an Event!

Hi all,


I'm about 1/2 way done making corrections in the final (professional) edit of book three. Then it goes to final proofreading. Yes, I wanted this book to be released by now, but I decided to spend extra time on it. I want it perfect. Totally perfect.

So now I'm looking at a Jan. 2019 release date. Which is fine. I can live with that.

Wanted to update you all. And...sorry, I have not done a book cover reveal yet. I will soon, I promise.

Until then.... BOOK SIGNING EVENTS!
Powell's Cedar Hills - my favorite bookstore in OR.


If you want to come see me this weekend, I will be signing books at Sci-Fi Authorfest 12 at Powell's in Beaverton, OR.

Love to see you there.

Book Three - The End of the Water Kingdom Series is DONE!

Hi all,

Last week I finished writing THREE BURNING RED RUNAWAY BRIDES, book 3 in The Water Kingdom Series. I did not want to post anything until today, when I finished re-reading it.

And making a few changes.

So far, this draft is at 96,200 words. I wrote those last 45,000 words in one month....yeah... 3,000 and 5,000 word count days. I killed it.

The book is now being edited. So I will have some time off to think about changes before I finalize it and start the publishing process.

The cover artwork is done. I can look to reveal that soon too. Maybe in Oct.

This was a true goal for me. To write and have a series published. I tried to meet that goal with Soul Born...but book one and two were published and books three and four were not. Hopefully, that can happen in the future now that Soul Born has a new publisher.

Sabrina London...

For the most part, her story ends with this book. If she returns in the next series, The Fire Kingdom Series, it would be in an unexpected way. You have to read to find out.

Expect to see Moselle, Jackson, Dunyasha, Joe, H.B. and others in book 3. And a few new characters.

I can't wait to get it out there and hear peoples' reviews. Until then, please, read and review the first two books if you have not. I need more reviews! :)

Thanks all.

Book three of the Water Kingdom Series is now almost done

Hi all,

I have been really busy writing. Like 2-5k words a day... and 4 days a week. This month, I have really kicked ass.

Book three is now at 83,000 words and nearing its epic conclusion. I am aiming for 95K words and then edit it down maybe to 90K.

I am in the final chapters of the story right now. So close. I should be able to finish writing it by the end of the month. I am very excited. It will mark the 9th book I have written. And, with any luck, it will be released before the end of the year. My goal is in Nov.

I cannot say much about the plot yet. I have given away some spoilers here and there. I don't want to say anymore...

I WILL reveal cover art in late Sept. 

So wish me luck. I have to finish writing and then edit it. Send it to a professional editor, do another edit pass...and a proofread pass. So there is still a lot of work to be done.

It's late. I'm tired. My eyes are blurry... lol...

Inspiration for The Water Kingdom Books.

Hi all,

I have been writing and writing and writing. Book three is the dramatic conclusion of the Water Kingdom and requires lots of precision and some research. As I write, I keep files and pics for reference and inspiration.

I just wanted to post some inspiration for The Water Kingdom Books.

As I write, I often hire artists to draw out my characters. This is an early Sabrina piece.

And I always "cast" my books. An artist needs to be able to visualize the characters.

I was trying to think of how Sabrina's wing tattoo would look...

Time to time, I browse Joanna's Instagram page. Oh, and she followed me back!

This was me exercising my Photoshop skills to conceptualize the tattoo again.

A later piece of art, where the artist imagined the wings as pure static electricity.

Me. Yep, I paint. I was trying to imagine the wings again.
In book three, I do a lot of research. This popped up during a Four Horsemen art search.

Someone gets a new haircut in book three. Needed a picture for reference.

Oh, Sabrina. Stop fighting yourself....


Thanks all!

Book three is coming along! And some hints.

Hi all,

Book three in the series update.

I am around 50% done writing it. I've gone back and made a few changes. I am really loving the story. But I most warn you. It is going to end one story line hard. And set up for another one. Not with all the same characters...

So when will I be done?

Hmmm....

I had to take some time off it, to get SOUL BORN ready and in the hands of a new publisher. So I am writing and editing at the same time. Writing this book and editing SB. So it's slower than I wanted. My goal is before Nov. 2018.

Let's see if I can get there.

Hints.

--We see the Water Kingdom Palace...if you can call it that.
--We meet a Fire Kingdom fairy. We also get some insights to how the kingdoms differ.
--Dunyasha is a major player.
--Joe is back...HB as well.
--And...

Had to get this for reference...
Hope you all are enjoying the books. I want to see more reviews. Especially on Amazon!

Thanks!
