Book 2

Greetings to the world.

I've been away from my blog for far too long.  Sorry 'bout that.
I'm back now and I have some catching up to do, clearly.

First of all, "The Boy Named Topaz" is alive and well and sitting on the Amazon lists. 

I have had a book signing at my local Indigo / Chapters, sold and signed many copies.  That was a dizzying, heady time, let me tell you. 

I have attended the Ad Astra 2015 Sci-Fi Convention in Toronto.  Another first for me.  That was a marvelous time.  I got a chance to meet other authors, attended panels on topics pertinent to my craft here.  First time that I was known as an author first.  That was a marvelous feeling too.

Now I am chugging away on the sketching phase for Book 2.  The element that I need this book to reveal are fairly clear, but there are gaps between the conception and the implementation.  My first book was a grand voyage of discovery of the process that a writer uses to pull together such a volume of words.  The Crafting of the bigger story, and how it links to the bigger story that I can see in m'head. 
My overall Story Arc is set in my head.  Each of the episodes in it are fairly fixed as to when they occur.  The problem with being a non-linear thinker is that I can see the final battle clearly in my head, and elements of books 3, 4 and 5....when I need to be focusing on 2.
Naught to be done about it.  My Muse likes leading me through music-induced mazes made up of crystal-clear clips from bigger mental vids.

Feel free to find me on Facebook or Twitter.
