Hello everyone, and welcome to the home stretch of summer. Here in Canada we’re experiencing a bit of a cool spell. We’re all wondering where summer went and when it’ll be back. But that’s alright because this cool spell is coming on the back of a heat wave, and personally, I’d much rather the cool than the muggy heat we get here. Then again, I’m a bit of a northern girl; my favourite time is mid-fall through to early spring … I know, I know: I’m probably alone on this.
I hope everyone’s summer has been fantastic, filled with memorable experiences and even more memorable reading. I was fortunate enough to be invited to a cottage for a week in July, so spent many long, sunny days by the lake … hunched over my laptop writing Legend of the Mist. It was awesome!
Speaking of Legend of the Mist, it’s going very well. I’m quite pleased with how the story is progressing and which characters I am meeting along the way. I am still on track to deliver a finished manuscript early autumn (I think I’ve missed the boat on end of summer unfortunately), and I hope it will be as much fun to read as it was to write.
This summer I’ve also had a lot of time to engage in other writing projects which have been a lot of fun for me, including blogging about local travel for a non-profit organization. It’s provided me with many fantastic experiences. I’ve also had time to think about what I want my next book to be about, but I haven’t gone too deep into that wilderness just yet. I still want to spend my energy making Legend of the Mist everything I hoped it would be.
A quick note on my e-presence, I am going to try to be a bit more active on Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads and my website than I have been in the past, so check me out for more regular communication. And, of course, don’t be afraid to touch base with me and leave comments or post your own ideas and messages to me. I always love to hear from you.
Cheers and take care for now,
