It’s been a few weeks since I wrote an update so it’s about time to share what’s been going on at the writing homestead. I’ve been making slow progress developing on my two new projects. However, the patient work on them will pay-off once they are written.
My editor just sent an email indicateding she plans to complete work on The White Arrow around next Wednesday. It’s coming back like a boomerang! Her initial reaction is that the book didn’t need much structural editing. I’m sure some necessary changes will be required but not as much as the last two books which bodes well for a possible earlier release than late October. Stay tuned for word on that front as the current price of $2.99 is only for release day.
Additionally, I’m working on the possibility of the series being published in audio format. That will likely take place beginning sometime in the first quarter of 2018. The details are still in the works so I’ll pass that along when I know more. I think the prospect of a digital audio edition of The Bow of Hart Saga will pair well with the currently offered ebook format.
Also, I’m looking into the possibility of a graphic novel deal. That’s a bit of a longer shot but I may be able to land some concept artwork. After that, it’s a matter of putting together a proposal. Since graphic novel editions would be in print, I’m seriously considering options to put the series into regular print too since these two format pair well like ebook and audio. There may be several new releases for The Bow of Destiny and An Arrow Against the Wind – interesting times with the writing!
Otherwise, it’s back to school for the teacher in my life and my college student daughter. The house is empty during the day – except for the dogs and the cat. One of the dogs has taken to going with me on runs so she’s a bit disappointed when she can’t go but when she does she keeps up well for a few miles, then lags because it’s really humid.
Our wet weather summer continues and I’m very glad the mower deck was repaired a few months back because the grass grows fast. I can almost watch it grow since it’s rained so much.
For those who want the latest news of our foundling cat, Minou, he’s quickly growing into a full-sized tom-cat. Minou has taken to charging my hand from the kitchen into the living room where he leaps onto wrap-around couch and ends with a crazed, helicopter pounce that sometimes carries him several feet in the air (I’m working on getting a video because it’s both very daring and very funny). He’s already going on about 9 pounds and has recently decided he wants to go out with the dogs since he sleeps and eats with them. We’re waiting to let him loose on the chipmunks until after he has “the operation”. However, Minou is doing a good job taking out any bugs that get into the house so he’s doing some of his vermin-hunting job.
That’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by for a visit and catching-up. Leave your comments below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!

Thanks fro the reblog, Don.
Sounds like you’re doing well on the writing front.
Working on a lot these days but making progress.
Congrats on the accomplishments and keep going. A graphic novel of the Bow of Hart Saga would be awesome!
Yes, I think a graphic novel would. Maybe you should broach the subject with your publisher about the Point Pleasant series. The Mothman would make a great basis for a graphic novel based on your work. The market is young, enthusiastic and loyal. I think it would translate very well.
Hmm. I never considered that, but something to think about. Thanks!
The mothman in graphic novel – that would be fantastic!
