I know it’s been a while since I last posted… a long while. Things have been a little crazy in my writing world. First off, the publisher of my first book, No Exit, went out of business. That wouldn’t be too bad, if they didn’t take hundreds of author’s royalties with them. And this all under the banner of being a “Christian Publisher.” Needless to say, they didn’t get away with it, they got stuck with several felony charges and are on probation so they can pay it all back. So that has been an ongoing process with the Attorney General in Oklahoma where they were located.
And yeah, it sucks, but this is how I’m choosing to look at it: through it all, I still got my book out there. May not have worked out the way I wanted in the end, but if it reached at least one person, it all was worth it. And I’m not letting any of it stop me…
Enter my WIP… (that’s work in progress for any of my non-writerly friends out there) Even though I haven’t been writing on the blog, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing. I’m well into my current WIP as you can see in my manuscript screen shot, I’ve passed the half-way point of my goal word count. I may even surpass it by the time I’m done.
What is it about, you ask?
I don’t think I’m quite ready to give the synopsis. But I will tell you it hits a little closer to home on this one; it’s a story of a very personal nature that I pray will speak to someone out there. It’s been a hard process; a difficult story to write, for sure. But it’s one that has been heavy on my heart for some time now, and it would almost be impossible for me not to write it.
Anyway, I’ll be putting up updates as it progresses.
live long and prosper!
