This month of August starts with many manuscripts in the making. My Book Two will need to be reviewed before I send it out to the publishers. My Book Three has started, as well as my other two genre manuscripts. Busy, busy, busy! Hope you are enjoying your summer.
I’m back from visiting my relatives now that the nation's holiday is over, and I will be writing soon. I’ve got several manuscripts in progress already. Book Three will be interesting. At this time, I’m wondering which city should I put this mystery. Also, I’ve got two very different manuscripts in different genres. Both are still in the introduction stages. As for Book Two, the climatic story will be puzzling for sure.
Since my first novel had been published, I had been writing up my second novel in series. Then my mother was sick, and died. We were in mourning for a while. My nephew picked up and got back to work. That's when I realized I had left my protagonist hanging. During the funeral service, a brother-in-christ suggested I write a biography of my mother after hearing my eulogy. It was a great idea at the time, but I found the process quite toiling. I am still deciding whether or not to write that. However, after reading many fantasy books recently, I decided to write another genre with a bit of mystery and suspenseful twist. C.S. Lewis was actually my inspiration. Reading murder mysteries and fantasy books in my past for a long time; This includes science fiction. So, this idea in changing to another genre isn't new to me. So, now, I have two novels in the making. I have so far written my Book Two in series and stopped writing for a bit, leaving it in its climatic state. I do believe the story is still climbing. One hint given, there will be two murders, just like my first novel. That is all for today.
I have been blogging in my Facebook pages about what's been happening personally.. A friend from church had suggested about writing a memoir of my mother. Throughout these past months, I had taken that idea seriously and wrote a short outline. I had also asked for an advice from another non-fiction writer about the process, the possible legality of certain matters. She had been helpful. It is definitely a longer process than any fictional writing. This I knew.
Putting that aside, I had taken more time into writing my Book Two. The storyline is exciting, and pretty much still along the lines on Christianity, and crime fiction. I am hoping to make it a straight-cut storyline with weavings of flashbacks. Thank you for being patient with me.
Throughout the months since my first book is on the market, I have been busy on YouTube and Facebook promoting my book, myself, and those in my personal life. Also, I have been writing the outline of my second book, writing each chapter as it comes accordingly with new adventures for Margaret Mendel and her husband Kiel, and more characters into the storyline. It is in series, and I have great help from friends who have also been writing their own books, articles, newsletters, etc. They have been helpful contributing their opinions on my Prologue. Hope you are excited wanting to know more about the mysteries therein as I am having fun writing them. It will definitely be a longer book, with a more careful look into the characters. Until next time...
I'm still in the process of writing my second novel in series. This is exciting! I cannot wait to finish and publish my next book. In the meantime, I already have my third book outlined. Hope you are all waiting in expectation. Thank you.
