After almost a solid month of plotting, characterization, pacing, and creating setting, I finally wrote the last sentence to my new novel before I start the revision process. Feeling elated I sat…Continue

What project you may ask?
As I wrote in my last post I have been working feverishly re-writing my three book middle grade sci/fi series. I wrote the…Continue
