I am in the process of editing and doing rewrites on my third book. I’ve employed the usual generous people to help me like my son, podcast co-host Kyle Grant, and my sister, Alana. This time, I also added another helper, Tanya Chapman. She is also an author and you can find her book here: King. It’s good. The writing is spot on. I learned a lot from reading it.
A friend at work told me one of her friends, Tanya Chapman, read my book, DOLL HOUSE, loved it but felt it could have benefitted from stronger editing. Grammar, storyline editing, that sort of thing. I agreed because she was right. So Tanya spent some of her own free time on my new book and what she told me to do was…well, mind-blown. The advice was invaluable. I have a lot of work ahead of me, but it will be worth it. I really love my third book. I loved my other two as well, but this one, I like, really, really love. And with all the help behind me, I’m going to make it shine. And that takes me to the next paragraph.
In order to make it shine, I am going to have to manage my time better. I work full-time, I have four kids, a foster kid (my wife pretty much looks after most of that, and when I say most, I mean almost all, she’s very supportive), I run a lot, I write books, and I host a podcast with my friend. I’m not complaining, really, I want to do all of it, and it is my choice to do them, I just have to manage myself better. And I will. Because it’s fun. Movies of the Damned!! has seven episodes so far and we have had over 200 downloads! I’m like, whoa! And then I’m like, how can we do what we are doing better? What is working and what isn’t? How can I learn from other podcasts? See? Fun stuff!
Any-hoo, I just want to say thanks to all of you. All of you who listen, read my books and spend that most valuable of resources, your time, to help me be a better writer, a better storyteller.
