Welcome to “Jots and Tittles”, which is what I’m calling my “random bits that don’t fit anywhere else” posts. I often have something to share that’s not really worth a full post, so I came up with the idea for these “catchall” posts.
My hope is to write one of these at least once a month, but maybe even more often. We’ll see how it goes!
Jots from the author’s desk
Editing. It’s like laundry. A dirty, never-ending job, but somebody has to do it.
I’m continuing to slog through edits for The Chronotrace Sequence revision. I’m closing in on finishing Into the Vast, and my hope is to get the first two books done by the middle of next month.
Part and parcel of my editing/writing travails these days is the familiar refrain of my post concussion head pains. They just won’t seem to go away. I would be a lot further a long with my editing if I didn’t have them, but I do, so I just have to press forward with the time God gives me.
No, I haven’t sold the rights to The Chronotrace Sequence. But I do have some exciting news about an upcoming release that I think will be a delight to most of my readers.
Some of you may have already heard about it, but it concerns one of the most beloved series of all time, and a certain winner of a silmaril in the 2016 Silmarillion Awards…That’s all I’ll say for now. But I plan on writing an entire post about it soon!
Dreams really do come true
Okay, so aside from being a finalist for the Grace Awards, and finding the awesome cover designer for my next book, The Last Motely, I had another dream come true recently.
I’ve been trying to read more books, you see. And one of the tools I’ve found helpful to keep me motivated is the Goodreads Challenge. (And if you aren’t on Goodreads, you really should be. It’s a great place to discover new books and authors)
So apparently my desire to read more books has gotten to the point where I actually had a dream about adding a book to my “to read” list on Goodreads. Yep, I’m certifiable.
I dreamt of adding Tale of Despereaux to my list. And guess what I did when I woke up? I added Tale of Despereaux to my list! Who says dreams don’t come true?!
I just hope it’s a book worth dreaming about.
Hasta la próxima
Well, that’s all I’ve got for now. Short (sort of) and sweet. I hope you enjoyed the launch of Jots and Tittles. Look for my “big” movie post in the very near future!
