Accountability (6-20-2020)

This page does not contain any promises, because nobody can be absolutely certain of anything they will do or what will happen, but I would like to offer you some idea of my writing plans and progress.

I have something exciting planned for November. Please check out this post for details and updates.

I have been having so much fun publishing Short Fiction, and my plan was to next publish a horror story followed by some science fiction, but The Dark Tide is turning out a lot longer than expected, and the last part of it will be posted on June 26. I’ve been posting short fiction on Fridays, and #scififri is a cool hashtag, so I’ve decided to post the first part of my science fiction story, Time Gone By, on the first #scifiFriday of #scifiJuly! I don’t want to leave Lockdown until after, so I’m going to post parts of those two stories on alternate Fridays. Therefore, you can expect part 1 of Lockdown on July 10. After one of those ends, I don’t know what I’ll do yet. I did have a disturbing dream last night, so I might just turn it into a story.

I’ve been doing seven weekly features, but I’ve decided that I need to set aside one day where I can post on any topic, in any way, shape, or form, fiction or nonfiction, so I’m going to do that on Sundays starting in June. No, Sharing Sunday isn’t going away, so if I find something I’d like to share with you, I’ll continue to do that on Sundays, but it just may not be every week.

Here is a list of my six weekly features.

I’m very excited to announce that I’m working on a children’s book. If you would like to learn more, please visit

Wounded Bride was published on January 23, 2020. It is the first novel in a series. The second novel in that series will probably be called Hero Worship, but there is a twist. One of the characters in it has published a book, and this book will be mentioned and talked about during the story. To make it more interesting, I have written that book, which will probably be called My Little Lie. So, in order to publish the second novel in my series, I first need to publish my character’s book. I don’t have a firm timeline yet, but I would love to bring them both to you some time in 2021.

After My Little Lie and Hero Worship, I might have a fantasy novel for you. It doesn’t have a title yet, nor is there a complete first draft, but the story is slowly taking shape. I hope to bring it to you by 2022.

I am working on other projects, and I will post details of those here. Genres I am having fun with include fantasy, romance, family life, science fiction, horror, historical, and a project or two whose genre I can’t quite figure out.

What genre(s) would you like to see me try? Please leave a comment below.
