Something has to change. Something, as in everything. Most of you know that I have been having trouble writing for the last few months. I’ve had help from some wonderful people but, nothing seems to be helping. I’ve decided to change things up in a few ways.
- Over the course of the next few months all of my books will be re-edited and re-worked so that I give you the best that I possibly can. Being a new writer I wanted to hit publish as fast as I could because, it was exciting to be able to hit that “PUBLISH YOUR BOOK” button. I did you, and myself, a disservice by doing that. It wasn’t the best I could do and for that I apologize.
2. Along with re-working all my books, all of my covers will be redone. My cover designer and I have been discussing this for the last few months and I think it’s time for something new.
3. Instead of working on the sequels to the stories I have out I’ll be working on something completely different. Because of the edits to the books I don’t want to continue those stories until I know what changes I will make to them.
4. Finally, the new thing I will be working on. I have touched on my faith a few times on this blog and on my Facebook page. What many of you may not know is that I was a teacher of the Bible for almost twenty years. I’ve decided it is time for me to use the knowledge I have gained over the years to write a book entitled “Who We Are in Christ”. It is something completely outside of anything I have published and I think that will be a good thing.
I don’t want to just write things to build up my catalog of books. I want to give you the best that I am capable of giving. I think this new plan is how I can do this. I love the craft of writing. There is something both delicate and brutal about it. If I give you anything but my best, I can’t really call myself a writer, I’m just a hack throwing words on a screen. You deserve better than that.
P.S. There is on other thing that I am doing. I found a fantastic writer that I am mentoring.She is very shy about sharing her works but, I hope to be able to get her to share some of it sometime soon. Keep an eye out for that.
