What I’m Working On Now

Well, here we are, half way through the year. I can hardly believe it’s the beginning of June. I tend to work a little obsessively and am trying to work on hyper-focusing on more than one thing at a time. (like meeting my daily writing goal and posting to my blog) I’m a work in progress, but aren’t we all? So, here’s what’s going on in my world right now. I’m working on Drifter, (closing in on the half way mark) and have a tentative finish date of June 30. Raise a glass, here’s to hoping! I am also working on 1931. I recently started a fun project–a very fictitious account of how Lisa and I came up with the idea for the 1929 series. Fiction about reality that created fiction. Feeling a bit like Inception here. But it is tremendous fun. I have 12 ‘episodes’ in the series, with one episode completed.
I also started two groups on Facebook. One, The Gardner’s Plot, where readers can get sneak peaks at works in progress, (no spoilers) more like ‘daily lines’. I am also sending out ‘Wordbound’ the fictitious account of my mental wanderings in segments in that group. So fb friends get a chance to read a lot for free before it goes to Amazon.
The second group is called “The Growing Garden”. I’ve had people email me more and more questions about writing or publishing. While I don’t know a lot, I am happy to share what I do know. When I was starting out it was a long, painful, soul-testing time. If I can help others feel not so lost in the process, that would be great.

If you are a reader and/or budding writer feel free to friend me on Facebook and request to join on or both of these groups. I’d be happy to have you.
