Rewriting My Third Novel, Black Matilda Pt. 3


COVID-19 pandemic has definitely put a damper on everyday life.  I hope everyone is being safe, careful and not touching their faces (it’s a daily struggle, I swear).

But I have good news!

Black Matilda is off to the editors!  Now I get to look forward to all the red ink!

Was it really two years ago that I posted an update on this book?  It definitely feels like an eternity since I last made any headway on it.  I didn’t realize how much time book four had swallowed up.  Never mind getting book two to print.  You know what they say, “Small wins lead to victory in the long run.”

Overall, I am pretty happy with it.  There are still some weak spots but at this point, I need another set of eyes to tell me why (and even where).  It’s been a hard journey for the crew of the Matilda and this book doesn’t make it any easier.  But soon this part of their story will be out and that’s pretty incredible.  A monstrous thank you to my editors and beta readers!  I can’t thank you enough!

Now to change gears and write some poetry, update some backstory ideas for another project and look over a few outlines on a couple of other projects… maybe three.  And, if you’re looking for some reading material, you can find my works here.

Stay safe everyone and stick to reliable sources on how to get through this!
