A Multiplicity of Thoughts
I have a blog entry on my website from August in 2014 where I was wondering if I would ever get a book published. Well, hopefully, by August of 2016 River of Cattle will be launched or about to be launched. It has been a roller coaster ride for these last two years. But, I can honestly say I’ve had a great ride.
Pen-L Publishing has been diligently working on getting it ready and I’m excited about the cover they are designing. It’s going to be awesome. I’ll put it on my website as soon as I can.
Book Two of the Will and Buck series, Murder on the Pecos, is beginning to show strength. The basic plot is pretty well formed and the details are beginning to take shape with six chapters under my belt. Not to shabby for a master at procrastination.
We have had an avalanche of rain this past week. I was in town getting my drivers license renewed and grocery shopping when it started raining really hard. I thought I was going to have to change my name to Dorothy and make a visit to Oz because everywhere I went I was one step ahead of a tornado that wrecked havoc in town and across the countryside. I didn’t know it was behind me until people started calling and yelling at me to get the heck out of Dodge (so to speak). Sometimes ignorance IS bliss. My house got some water in it but, MY WRITING CABIN DIDN’T! YEA! My priorities are in the right place.
I’ll be heading out soon to Canyon, Texas to the West Texas Writers Academy at West Texas A&M for a week long lesson in plotting using the Three Act Plot Structure, lots of hard work ahead of me. Y’all might think I’m crazy but, a week spent with a bunch of other writers working my you know what off is pure heaven.
If you haven’t already checked out my new author Facebook page please do so and be sure to Like it. Also, please go to by website (please Like it as well) and leave me your email address on the contact page. I’ll soon be sending out a newsletter periodically with updates on the progress of my books and maybe a contest to win something (I haven’t decided what just yet, but it will be awesome) or a free give away of a teaser about River of Cattle to whet your appetite for what is to come. Stay tuned.
