Diving back in

Summer has been far busier than I expected it to be! Here's some progress reports on my various works:

Still working on editing Wizard's Mischief: Flame. Hope to have good news soon.

Spent July writing the entire first draft of Wizard's Mischief: Thorne, the second book in the series. I'm really excited about this book and about the whole series! It is, quite simply, the best writing I've ever done.

Planning to jump into edits for the final book of the Tales of Telmaja series in September. I haven't worked out the timing yet, but it's possible that I will publish that book before I publish Wizard's Mischief: Flame because I need to learn the new Kindle Print tools anyway.

While I would like to finish the edits for the last book in the Ordinary Sam series by the end of the year, I don't know yet if that's feasible considering that I'll be starting a new writing project this November. I don't want to build up a backlog of too many unpublished works again, but I also know that editing well requires a bit more time than writing.

How was your summer?
