Due to an over-abundance of ADHD characteristics in my life, my writing and publishing schedule is somewhat fluid and depends on too many factors to name, but it usually goes something like this: write, write, write, “Squirrel!!!”
That keeps life interesting, and it means the Writing & Publishing Schedule is subject to changes due to life events . . . and squirrels.
Now let’s take a look at what I have in the pipeline:
Writing & Publishing Schedule
The Print edition of From Julia’s Kitchen: Owen Family Cookery will be release in April.
The Checklist: Indie Publishing My Way is a nonfiction book for writers, and it’s almost finished, so it’s up next to be released as an e-book. Watch for announcements here, on my blog, and on Facebook and Twitter.
That Tender Light is still being written. It’s the story of how Rod Owen and Julia Helm first met, and it’s very romantic.
Mended by Moonlight is still being written. It gives Ella Ruth Allen from Gone for a Soldier a more hopeful outlook, and kicks off a new group of tales: Shenandoah Neighbors.
If I can keep my power on throughout the summer, I plan to spend the warm months writing the second Promised Valley novel, The Mormon Battalion Trail, featuring Paul Peters, a character from The Zion Trail, in an exciting adventure of his own. Then I’ll begin work on a second “Men of Haught Springs” piece to introduce the Graff brothers.
Before the end of the year, I will publish The Apple Pie Prize, a short Owen Family story, and Bloodied Leather, a Shenandoah Neighbors story with a twist in the subject matter that occurs a little further down the timeline of the 19th Century.
Wish me health and good cheer as I work to bring you stories containing Action. Adventure. Romance.
2018 and Beyond – in no particular order
An Owen Family Novel featuring James Owen
Lies & Secrets: Three Short Stories (A Shenandoah Neighbors Collection)
Other works in the Promised Valley and Men of Haught Springs series
You never know when I might branch off into some surprising genre, like contemporary romance or hard-boiled detective fiction. Keep a close watch!
