September 2018

I hope this summer treated you well!  Apologies for the absence but I’ve been busy working on the next novel.  My self-imposed March deadline was very ambitious. However, I completed my first ROUGH draft a short time ago. 
It was BRUTAL.  I must have rewritten this draft 20 times before settling on a good starting point. At times, the writing felt like I was running an endless marathon.  At least with a marathon, one knows the mileage markers and the distance left to complete the race. 
Good news update:  “Mercy’s First Semester” has been selected as a 2018 B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree!  B.R.A.G. Medallion recognizes the best independent and self-published novels.  The organization has over 200 anonymous readers (none with a vested interest) across 10 countries.  The readers judge a book’s merits based on a comprehensive criteria list.  Good independent books are rarely reviewed by The New York Times. I am humbled.
Sorry for the brevity of this post but I have more writing to do. 
Finally, if you have read “Mercy’s First Semester” and not posted a review on Amazon yet, please do so at your earliest convenience.  Those reviews help tremendously.
I will keep you posted on future engagements.
Be well.
