Hero’s Journey

I am excited to have received my manuscript back from my beta reader and I will make my corrections and get it formatted and ready for launch very soon. I still have to get a page count and have my cover designer finish the back cover.

The story continues with Sela going off to summer camp without Emily. She is faced with challenges and has to own some decisions that are out of the norm for her.

Emily and Zach are working during the summer and Emily is dealing with her father moving forward with his personal life after the death of her mother in the previous book.

All three have some growing and changing to do before high school.

Sela knows she has been called to do something with the powerful message and bond that was formed from the play. In Heroes by Design the students developed ideas for change in a play bases on Beauty and the Beast. It was a tremendous hit and barriers were crossed.

The three friends work to start a group for teens that will encourage change and create the possibility of a better world. The angels that were sent to help Emily overcome the death of her mother return in an unusual form, and together they develop an idea for Teens for a New Tomorrow. TNT “the bomb.”

They will have to work together to overcome obstacles and roadblocks. Sela will have to accept ideas from a surprising source and Emily and Zach will have to overcome some heavy issues to continue, the journey.

I just ordered 50 more books and I will begin to contact Indie bookstores. Please remember no matter where you get your books to review them on Goodreads or on my wordpress site. Amazon will only let you leave reviews if you order from them, but if you do please leave reviews. As an author that is the only way we can get beyond our loving family and friends.

Realizing the Dream

Close! so very close. It seems like it has been a long time in coming but here I am. My middle-grade book is well on its way to publication.

Tomorrow at 12:00 P.M. Central time my editorial review will be posted on www.http://www,bookreviewdirectory.com and the e-book cover will be out there. 

Heroes by Design, the first in a three book series is being formatted and the e-book cover is designed. As soon as the formatting is completed I will submit the information needed to complete the physical book. It is exciting and terrifying. My head is exploding with all of the marketing videos and webinars I have been listening to and I am sure I will wish I had a better grip on how to build a list and all the things that go with getting the book to the intended reader.

I am studying and working on reaching my target audience but it is daunting. The process is a continuing education. My timeline is a little sketchy but I hope to have my Advance reader copies by the second week of January and the actual launch  by mid February. I will keep you posted.

I will be doing a Facebook live, Cover Reveal Party, on Dec. 3rd at 6:30. I will introduce fellow writers in my community and read my 4 Star editorial review. I am new to all of this so send me your positive energy and vibes and join me there.
