I'm a NaNoWriMo Winner!

Winner 2015 - Web Banner

For those of you non writers who don't know what this is, it's a sort of personal challenge to write 50,000 words in one month, the month of November. It is not a small feat, doable but challenging, especially when you have a real life that gets in the way.

I chose to take the challenge and finally get started on the third novel in my Sionian trilogy. And though I did not get the novel completely roughed out, I am now 50,000 words farther ahead than I was a month ago. I'm probably about half way through the first draft. I thought I would be farther than that but as this book brings in a lot of new things, I have worlds to build and people to introduce. This book is going to be longer than I expected. But it going to be so worth it - just saying . . .

My how time flies. I thought I would have this news sooner. Sorry to tease for so long, but I think I can safely announce it now.


I have signed a contract with WiDo Publishing for my book called Yahhaidd. It is the first of a trilogy about the Sionian people. If it does well, I have confidence they will do the rest of the trilogy also.
I'm am more than pleased about this. This trilogy has been in the works for years. Some of you may have heard of it as the Watchers. That name, however, was too popular with other books so I scrapped it and came up with a better one. In truth this book has evolved so much it really isn't the same book anyway.

Note: If you are a fan of The Gift of Lies and have been waiting, don't be dismayed. The sequel, The Debt of Truth is very close to being finished and I will have it professionally edited and put it up on line as soon as I can.
