I must apologize for the lack of updates recently. A lot has been happening in my life recently, making it a little difficult to keep up with regular posts. Business with my “day job” has been picking up considerably the last several weeks, and I sat in to help hire and train several new employees. Finally, my sister just gave birth to an adorable baby girl, so that excitement has been abound as well. But now things are finally settling down to the point where I can sit down and do some writing.
I’ve been able to keep a slow pace on my works in progress. All three have seen some level of progress in the midst of all the insanity that life has been throwing my way as of late. However, one project is actually reaching a state of completion. I am thinking a few thousand more words, and I might be finished.
Currently, it looks as though I may soon be finished with my sequel to Mademoiselle Durand and the Pirates. I have a tentative title and a couple of cover ideas that I am considering. Though neither is official yet, I thought I’d share my progress:
I am somewhat more partial to the look of option number two, but there are elements of option number one that I like as well. The title is pretty much set at this point, barring some unforeseen edits to the story. If anyone has any opinions on either cover, I’d love to hear what you think!
As for my Blog, I will resume more frequent updates effective immediately. I have some topics to write about and many ideas I want to research. And of course updates on the progress of my writing projects. Life is filled with work and other real world obligations, and writing is my escape from that real world. It is my vacation in a world of 40+ hour workweeks, my rest when the real world gets to be too much. And now I can get in a little more time for my escapes. I cannot wait to see where my stories lead me.
