Back On Track
I’m back. After a long hiatus I’m back on track. Here’s an update.
I went to an intense writing workshop last summer given by Margie Lawson on deepening the emotional level of your writing. It was awesome. I learned such a tremendous amount. When I came home I reworked River of Cattle and hopefully improved it considerably.
River of Cattle has been picked up by Pen-L Publishing. I have just completed the first revision of their corrections, comments, and suggestions. I’m anxious to get their response back and the second set of corrections, comments, and suggestions.
They offered me a three book contract, which I signed.
So, I have started work on Murder on the Pecos, the second book in the Pecos River Series. I have a spreadsheet of the overall plot of the book and the first three chapters roughed out. But I have recently realized that I don’t have the details of the actual murder sufficiently developed. So, that is my next project. I need to figure out exactly how it was done, down to the last tiny detail. I can’t solve it if I don’t know how it happened.
I sent Rootin’ Tootin’ Ruthie out to a publisher in Houston and she was rejected, however, they liked her and made a suggestion on how to better the story. So, I followed their suggestions and am planning on sending her out again. We’ll see what happens.
I’ve completed the first version of Bluebonnet Ball, A Rootin’ Tootin’ Ruthie Tale but, I’m not sure I’m satisfied with it. I think it needs to be changed up a bit. It is definitely a work-in-progress.
