I haven't vlogged in something like a month. I've made maybe three videos for my main channel in that time. And thank GAWD I've only had a couple of candle orders to fill...
Because I have been WRITING my ASS off!
Like, seriously...I have no butt anymore. At all.
But mostly that's because I've been SITTING on it for ten hours a day, nearly EVERY day, tapping away at my keyboard trying to finally round third base and bring my novel on HOME! (Side note: My belly fat is out of control because of my limited mobility - but my biceps are looking pretty sweet because I still do arm weights when I take breaks!)
I'm very excited because this thing has been 13 years in the making (perfect number, right? Ha!) and I'm ACTUALLY about to FINISH the darned thing once and for all!
I've given it an official name - which I won't reveal, yet.
I've designed the entire book cover - front and back - which I also won't reveal, yet.
And I've already begun planning a second installment, and have ideas for third and fourth installments, too!
I've been living, breathing, eating (well...not eating...that would be counterproductive) this book for a month, and will continue to do so until it is PUBLISHED.
I anticipate it being online ready to purchase for Kindle and in paperback in as little as a couple of weeks - maybe less. Seriously. Shit just got real.
If you want to read the draft of the first chapter, you can by clicking here.
People have asked what my book is about, and I've been quite secretive, and will continue to do so - but I will say that it is a fantasy novel mostly geared toward young adults/teens (but I also think adults will enjoy it, equally). It has a spooky setting and feel, and is also fun, adventurous, and whimsical. I really tried to just create a world that you can easily fall into and feel like you're a part of (and want to be a part of).
I really hope many of my viewers will purchase my book when it comes out - not because I'm in it for the money (though that would be a pleasant bonus, of course), but because I really think I've created something that will inspire imagination, hope, and all the good feels. And I want as many people to experience that, as possible. It's good food for the soul :)
