Good grief, time passes so fast!  I've been writing a new children's book about a Koala and trying to get a fourth novel started.  The book about a Koala is nearly finished but I am still in the thinking stage on the novel.  Maybe I'll need to do what I did before writing my Hellfire novel.  Back then, my husband and I wrote out an outline of some 35 chapters.  Then I started writing, but the characters kind of took over the plot, and the outline was ignored.  For my second novel I had more input and control over the characters. For my third novel, Tomorrow (not yet published), new ideas about my characters just kept coming.  It is a sequel to my first novel, and a bit longer.  I think you'll like it. My husband will get it published as soon as he finishes minor revisions to my second novel, Rough Edges, which will be renamed, and as soon as he gets my first children's book, Calbert and His Adventures, republished as an Amazon Kindle and paperback (the original, published by Aton Press in 1990, is only available in used paperback and hardbound copies from independent booksellers in the U.S. and U. K.


Sadly, I have decided to call off my book giveaway contest because of the many legal requirements and difficulties involved. However, I'll give away five paperback copies of my paperback to those in the United States who request them--just be sure to give me your mailing address, please!
