Let me tell you a secret.
I have been keeping a secret from everyone for the past year. In anticipation of a change of careers (which happened as planned) I have been pursuing a writing career. I have always been a big reader, and flirted with the idea of writing a book of my own, but had never found the time. At the beginning of the year I set a goal to have a published book, and I am really close. My first book is titled Higher Education and is in the suspense/drama genre. I completed the first draft earlier this year and sent it off to my editor (she has been tough, but wonderful). I have some re-writes to complete, but it is close. While my editor was working on Higher Education I completed the draft of my second book, In Hiding. It has the long road of editing ahead but I am as excited about it, if not more, than my first book. The next step is to send each book off to beta readers, a small sample of readers, to provide early feedback. I will keep everyone informed of the progress as I near the publishing date. I have an author website ready to go, but I don’t want to share it quite yet. It will go-live at the time of the first release. My books will be available both electronically for the kindle and other e-readers, as well as in paper format. Stay tuned for details. I know with your help we can make it a bestseller!
The weather has been unseasonably warm this past week. I did my long run yesterday and I overdressed. It ended up being a “hot” 13 kilometres! I am not complaining, it is just hard to anticipate the temperatures day to day.
I travelled 116 kms during my training last week.
See you at the finish line, or an author signing near you……
