Hello again, friends! I know, I know. It’s been a while since my last post. But I have a perfectly good, knock-your-socks-off reason that you definitely want to know about! A while back, I wrote a post called “Why Writing a Book is Probably a Lot Like Having a Baby“. Hopefully from the title you inferred that I am, in fact, writing a book. Well, folks, I have my literary due date.
You ready for it? My very first novel, a science fiction piece named Renegade, will be available on Kindle and paperback starting April 1! HOORAY! I know, this is totally crazy. How am I handling it, you ask? With a healthy dose panic, washed down with an enthusiastic high. Altogether, it looks like this:
Anyways, you’re probably wondering what it’s about, right? Here’s the gist:
There are just three rules to being a time traveler.
1. Do not, under any circumstance, interfere with your environment during travel.
2. Do not attempt to carry other persons or large articles during travel.
3. Keep your talisman on your person at all times.
When time traveler Andrew Simmons loses his talisman in pre-revolutionary Boston, he must race against the clock to retrieve his only way home. Everything is on the line – family, love, freedom, honor, and quite possibly the future. But as time reveals a long line of dark secrets, Andrew realizes he must save more than just his skin. He must also save his kind.
Captivating stuff, right? Anyways, of course I will be posting more about Renegade as April 1 draws closer, but I just wanted to let you know so you can circle April 1 in your calendars and buy a Kindle for the sole purpose of supporting me. Selfish? Eh, maybe a teensy, tiny bit. Okay, yes. That’s a horrible thing to say.
Anyways, if you want to stay in the loop about Renegade (or if you’re competing for friend of the year), please please please like the Renegade Facebook page and share with your framly! Note: Framily = Friends + Family. I would absolutely love to have your help in spreading the word. Pretty please? With sugar on top? And a cherry? And sprinkles? And whipped cream? And ice cream, somewhere?
I hope you didn’t make your sundae in that order. What a mess, right? Anyways, I’ve still got some revisions to make, so I will leave you to eat you with your hypothetical, upside down sundae. So goodbye for now, and I’ll be looking for you on the Renegade Facebook page!
That is really impressive! Congratulations! This is something I want to do one day so it is refreshing to see someone achieve their dream!
Thank you so much! It’s definitely been a struggle, but I’m confident it will all be worth it. Let me know when your book hits the stands!
So, very proud of you. What an achevement for someone so young. I know your family is proud and I can’t wait to read it. Sheila Ryel
Thank you so much! I really appreciate your encouragement.
