June 2017 Update on Writing Projects

I've been using the bulk of my writing time to read through the manuscript of a friend's first novel. I'm happy to say that I'm really liking it so far and it's been a pleasure to read. It's a long book and I'm glad there's a lot more story to go. I'm over a third of the way through it and I've only found like four typos! He writes clean stuff and/or did a great job editing it before handing it off to me. I'm not giving you his name or the name of the book, but I'll be sure to let you know about it when he gets it published.

With that said, let me tell you about what I've been working on here and there for my own writing. Once I finish my friend's book I'll go back to writing every day on my own stuff. Okay, so I started writing new words on an old manuscript and I'm also revising my newest book "Haunted House Flipper." I'm also still working on the illustrations for a chapter book I finished called "The Case of the Missing Snowman." So here's where all my current projects stand:

Haunted House Flipper

The first draft of this novel is done and I'm about 25% of the way through revising it. Once that's done I'll give it to Beta Readers, make some more revisions with their feedback, and publish it!

Zombie Super Powers

I'm in chapter 15 of 24 so the first draft of this book is well on its way to completion. Then I'll revise that bad boy and get it in the hands of Beta Readers. Hopefully I can publish it this year as well.

The Case of the Missing Snowman

The first draft of this book is done! I'm still working on the illustrations for it though, and waiting to get feedback on it from a classroom of 4th graders who had it read to them in class by their teacher who plays on my softball team :) I'm hoping to get this book published this year as well. I need to get those illustrations finished!

That's about it, although I did write a really fun short story for an anthology about an elephant sized man eating bear. The Anthology is tentatively titled Mythos. I'll let you know more when it's available. Thanks for stopping by!
