Writing a Second Book

My first novel has been submitted to publishers for consideration.  While I wait for responses, I've started a new one. It is a follow up to the first but details the story of the sidekick best friend from the first book. Here is a one paragraph excerpt:


A paintbrush rested in her right hand and awaited its next stroke on the canvas.  A Knock, knock, knock at her door finally shook her from her daydream.  The brush fell onto the beige carpet. It left a crimson stain that looked like blood.  Looking through the peephole, she saw no one standing there.  There was another knock.  Her heart raced. She was alone.  The tea kettle began to whistle loudly enough to indicate someone was home. She pushed her eye toward the glass hole in the door once more.  An eyeball looked back at her this time, the person was too close to the hole to identify who it was.

Sequel to Sarah Starting Over

Some readers have mentioned wanting to read a sequel to Sarah Starting Over. Well, I'm happy to say that I have started writing a book #2 so that readers can see what happens with Greyson and Sarah one year later. Here's a tiny sneak peak. We will see the story through Greyson and Sarah's eyes in this story:

Greyson
My size thirteen wingtips kicked a couple of oval pebbles until they were sucked into a crack in the sidewalk. Other indentations in the walkway were overgrown with green things. The near constant rain made living in Siletz Bay like taking up residence on the surface of a Chia Pet. I’d been advised to wear more comfortable footwear by the prosthetic experts. But I had an image to maintain, leg or no leg.
The Canon camera I’d inherited from my mom after her passing hung around my neck most days. Clicking pics of married men sharing their beds with their assistants had become my bread and butter.

The Happy Hausfrau

One of my favorite blogs to read is The Happy Hausfrau.
It chronicles the raising of kids post divorce.  While, I'm grateful
that I can't relate on a personal level, I love her posts about momdum.
She seems like a real survivor.  If you are looking for compelling reading,
check it out, you won't regret it.
