I was disappointed not to have Wretched selected as a Amazon breakthrough novel finalist, but I remained determined. I’ve submitted the manuscript to a publisher (Shadow Mountain) and learned that they received it, so it’s a 6-8 week wait now to learn more.
I’ve made some good progress writing the sequel to Wretched. It’s The Blight of Muirwood and I’ve made substantial progress and had some good feedback on it so far. I still think it is a 3-book story arc, but probably longer than the first. During the last week, the oak trees in this area are gorgeous with new leaves. I love this time of year.
