The summer of 2015 is quickly coming to close. As a teacher, summer vacation affords me more time to write, plot, do research, and sleep whenever. I've settled into a new groove and have been churning out words at a more acceptable rate. The first draft of the next book is proceeding nicely and I am excited with where it's heading. That said, book two is still taking me longer to finish than I anticipated. This book is going to be special. I say that not to be egotistical, but because its scope, characters, and plot are complex and rich. I get lost in it sometimes (this is a good thing) and the euphoria of being there in the story makes me understand that taking my time will be worth it in the end. Stay tuned.
