Happy November – The latest news in my literary world

Happy November!

With the spooks of Halloween behind us, a few continue to lurk…Between the Bleeding Willows has been contracted with Limitless Publishing. It is a series so there will be a minimum of 2 books. I am thrilled for the opportunity to bring this to life. 
I love Halloween and was in the mood to write a book involving one of the monsters people fear. My daughter suggested demons since they are most scary to her, so Bleeding Willows is about Demons, Demon Hunters and the struggles between good and evil.  Sometimes those lines get blurred and my characters struggle with which side to fall on. 

But publishing a book takes some time (about 2-3 months once you hand it to the publisher). The next steps will be creating blurbs, covers, and then onto the editing. So hard work is in my future but I look forward to it. In the meantime, I am working hard on book 2 because when you get to the end of book 1…you all will be hunting me down to find out what happens next.
I also will be sending my J+P series out for professional edits. A different publisher showed interested but requested some of the wording be changed so we will see if that can be accomplished. I’d really like to see that series published, many who have read it enjoyed it and would like the next 2 books to be completed.

And despite the next event taking place on December 1st, I thought I should post it here so you don’t miss it. I am helping fellow author and friend, Jennifer Cleary Roche celebrate her book release “Healing Ties”. There’s a great author line up that will take over her blog that evening (including myself). Come out, help us celebrate, play some fun games with the authors, and win prizes!
Don’t eat too much turkey, but be sure to gobble up lots of books! It’s cold weather season…perfect for sitting by a fire with a good book!

Bleeding Willows is happening!

Thank you to all of those who believed in me and encouraged me. Today I received a contract for the Bleeding Willows series by Limitless Publishing. It’s my first truly fictional book..not based on anyone or any event…just pure fiction. I’ve learned so much in the penning of this book and am busy at work on book 2! Stay tuned for future Bleeding Willows news!

The End.

I have officially finished penning Bleeding Willows and I am pleased with how it turned out. Along the way, I needed to build my characters – so I searched for key elements I saw them having and here is what I came up with after scouring the internet for images that inspired me:

Casper – the fast, intuitive young fighter for the clan…and Cassidy’s close friend

Tyler: Her human sparring partner and new crush. But his betrayal leaves her second guessing their relationship.

Jace: Her boyfriend of 4 years who has a bit of an evil side to him.

Killian: The leader of the clan of demon hunters, bonded to Cassidy, and forever watching out for her.

Lena: Killian’s sister who is the clan medic

And last but not least…our main character…Cassidy:

Setting for Bleeding Willows

Growing up on the south side of Chicago, I remember hearing tales of devil worshippers heading to Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery to pay their respects to Satan.  It creeped me out, yet I was also very curious and wanted to investigate.  This autumn I’ve decided I will visit the cemetery and will update when I do.

I did NOT take these photos. They come from this website: https://brothertom.wordpress.com/category/graves/

But this abandoned and haunted cemetery has inspired the setting for Between the Bleeding Willows, my current work-in-progress novel.  Cassidy, the main character, lives in Homer Glen, IL, as I did growing up. She will find her life forever changed when she wanders into the cemetery. Welcome to Bachelor’s Grove!
