Wonderful World of Recovery

Greetings from the wonderful world of recovery.

I’ve reached a tough chapter, and so I’m taking a break for an update. I’m over halfway through Lessons 18 and 19.

For those of you who unfamiliar with HTRYN, this means query letters will be shooting out by email mid-February.

This is a big deal and I’m excited. At the same time, I’m tired of revision. Anyone who’s done it will tell you, while it has its enjoyable parts, it’s mostly hard work. So, to amuse myself, I’ve started thinking about possibilities for my next project.

The first idea is a murder mystery that takes place in the mountains of Colorado. The hero, a local sheriff, pursues the killer through the northern front range of our beautiful state and into the contemporary wilderness of Wyoming-and back again. The second idea on the cooker is science-fiction, using two of my current characters. These characters are both soldiers of different ages and backgrounds who, when they meet, teach each other a lot about survival, honor, and love. However, neither one of the characters is human. I’m not sure if this is a plus or a minus to readers who don’t know these folks like I do.

So, now it’s your turn. What new projects are lurking in your future?

  1. Wow, awesome progress on Lessons 18/19! I’m doing them one at a time, and I’m kidding myself if I think I’m halfway through 18 right now. Sometimes the second part of the lesson goes faster though, so we’ll see.
    I’ve been in the early, early planning stages of the third book of my side project, a post-apocalyptic dystopian steampunk trilogy with dragons. I’m itching to start revising the first two in the series, and am using that as my incentive to get through this revision.
    I sure hope they’re right when they say the first revision is the hardest!
    Query letters! Go you! 🙂

  2. Thanks, Kirsten. I wonder how many authors work on several projects at a time? Probably more than you’d think! Good luck and keep me posted.
