I received the illustration roughs on Friday and I am excited to see the finished cover and illustrations. My goal is to have this book published by the last week of April, but we will see if that happens or not :)
Now that I have some free time while TCCAS #2 is being edited, I will work on getting Thunder written.
I've been reading a lot of blog posts and books on how to increase your productivity while writing and they have been really helping. Hopefully I'll be able to increase my writing speed and get this project done in time for a summer publication date!
I have started chapter four and I hit a dead end for awhile, but I think I'll be able to work through it.
Bannie is my inspiration for this story and the other day I looked through my files for some pictures of him I could use. I found some really nice ones that I think depict Thunder very well.
This is my favorite.
I recently started a new story about an abused girl who makes friends with a wild stallion. He is her only comfort until a cowboy named Lucas come to her uncle's ranch. She feels he has something she doesn't and he is the only person who has ever been kind to her since she came to live with her uncle.
What do you think? Any ideas to add to the plot? Any ideas for Thunder?
As soon as I finish Thunder, or probably even before that, I will be working on completing the rough draft of TCCAS #3, The Stranger and the Lost Mine. So far, this project has taken me over two years, if I remember correctly.
That pretty much sums up my writing life at the moment. :)
