Wow! Just realized I hadn’t released my monthly post yet! Sorry everyone that this issue of Novel News is so late in coming this month!
Whew!!! Man is it hot! Summer has hit, and the sweltering heat in Texas has consistently maintained triple digit temperatures! Hopefully you are all finding ways to beat the heat, and finding good books to delve into.
To all my faithful readers, grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We praise God for He is good! I want to encourage you all to please remember that through God’s providence we will continue to persevere through any and all of life’s hardships. I pray that by the grace of God, our Father, that we all continue in the our common faith placed solely in our Lord, Jesus Christ. Always remember that no matter what the world throws at you, “He works all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
Also remember: “And He said, “See to it that you are not misled; for many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not go after them. When you hear of wars and disturbances, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end does not follow immediately.””
Luke 21:8-9 NASB1995 (Emphasis mine)
As usual, I am thrilled to be sharing what God is doing through my writing! Get ready for some more Novel News!
THE NEXT BOOK:
Book Four is still coming along well, though June did not allow much time for writing. Still, I am nearing the home stretch and expect the first draft to be completed by the end of July! I’ve reached the final chapter for each of our favorite characters. Not all of them are likely/destined to survive… Surprises are also in store for the kingdom’s inhabitants and the final epic confrontation with dragon has yet to be resolved. I’m still surprised at how quickly it’s been going, and I’m looking forward to completing the first draft and beginning the hardest part: editing and publishing the book.
The war with the dragon has reached the endgame, and all of your favorite characters, whose lives were turned upside down in the last two books, must now make hard choices that will determine how the war will ultimately end.
I really wish to thank all of you out there for encouraging me and even providing feedback from time to time. All of which enables me to make each book better than the last!
So excited as the story really comes together and I look forward to sharing this and other stories with you.
