Well, FOR LOVE OF HANNAH is done and published in Kindle format and paperback on Amazon.com. I worked hard to make that story as perfect and well written as possible. If you purchase a copy, please write a review. Thanks to Janice Franklin, my friend in Florida, who read the manuscript for me and loved the story. I hope the rest of you feel the same.
My novel, TO CATCH A DREAM, has 66,000 words written. I am in the process of writing a chapter by chapter synopsis of the book, 1. To refresh my memory of what I have written and 2. To have a long summary so I can condense it later into a one or two-page version.
The third book in the Jonas Black series, THE SNATCHER, will take longer for me to write as I have a shorter amount completed. I have the outline to follow, which should help, but I want to finish TO CATCH A DREAM first. All I have to do is follow the outline I have for it.
The other day while checking my list of novels, I came across two other ghost stories. The first one, ON GABRIEL’S WATCH, is loosely based on an actual murder that happened in Florida back in the 1980s. The other, STEALING TIME, just popped into my head several years ago about a woman who owns a used bookstore. Both stories have almost 30,000 words written. Once THE SNATCHER is done and published, they will be my main focus, as well as the next book in the Jonas Black series, TEARS OF THE INNOCENT.
Spring can’t be too far away. When I took my pups out this morning, JoJo went crazy. The groundhog had gone into the fenced garden, the gate is open, and when Jo started barking, the frightened animal went nuts trying to find his way out. The poor thing was so scared he kept running into the wire fencing until he finally succeeded in escaping. He made a beeline for his burrow under the shed. He hasn’t ventured too far out since. Also, this morning, the ducks were having a good time playing in the pond, and I heard the honking of the Canadian Geese from somewhere on the water. Spring is on the way, thank you, God.
Well, the weekend is here. Everyone have a great one and stay safe. Remember: NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER.
