#atozchallenge Theme Reveal

It's official - I AM PARTICIPATING! I'm excited about finally being able to do another A to Z. This time around it will be a little different. No flash fiction. No word play. No twists and turns.

My theme this year will be "Oh, the places we will go!" Because I have traveled so much since becoming a full-time RVer (and part-time cruiser) in 2007, this should be a fun challenge.

Done! Well, almost...

I'm home from our Southern Caribbean cruise (details and photos on my personal blog) and it was a huge success. I finished the first draft of my third Klondike Mystery novel, Almost a Touch. I hope to be working on edits by May.

Why not immediately? First, for non-writers, it's best to let a story sit and percolate a bit. Get it out of your brain. When you come back to edit, you will see things more clearly. For me there is a second reason.

Here's the cover....

This will be the second mystery novella in my Lei Crime Kindle World series. The first was Paradise Down. I even made some headway on writing this. I have my project set up in Scrivener, I have my characters defined and chapter one is written.

I leave on another cruise, Western Caribbean this time, in ten days. I hope to have most of the book written and will try to finish it on the cruise. I do have a deadline of May first for this to be ready for publication.

I don't know about you, but I'm excited!

#IWSG for Mar 2017: Stickwithitness

I almost missed this months Insecure Writer's Support Group post. But I guess I could be excused, I'm on a ten day cruise. But while I am cruising, I am also writing. A LOT!

In fact, I will finally finish the first draft of the third book in my Klondike Mystery series, Almost a Touch. I know my faithful and patient readers are happy to hear that...

In fact, if I'm lucky, I might even make a jab at starting my next novella in my Lei Crime Kindle World series. Initially it was to be Paradise Drift (Paradise Down was the first). But the characters in Paradise Dead are talking to me. No, they're ranting at me. So that one is next.

So my word for the month's IWSG is "Stickwithitness", because that's what I'm finally doing.
