Delays for the better...

I know, I've been promising the release of A Captain's Heart since August, but taking so much time has been for the best. I thought once summer ended, I wouldn't be so busy and could focus on my writing, but this fall has been incredible and just as busy. God has done amazing things in my life in the last two months that are now really contributing to my writing. It's quite a cool story that I want to post about sometime, but long story short, I've come to know a wonderful group of believers and am now part of a Bible study that really hopes to become a local church. The people I've met and have become friends with have been so encouraging and helpful to my writing. Already I've learned things that have made me go back and change things here and there in A Captain's Heart to be clearer and better understood. That is one reason I'm glad publishing it has taken so long. I've also gone back and slightly updated Every Tear, which is in the process of being done now.


As for the progress of A Captain's Heart, it is almost done. Mom only has a couple of chapters left and has the cover mostly finished, so now it's pretty much up to me to read through it once more and format the pages. I am determined to have it done this month so it's out before Christmas.


Another project I have going is I've decided to re-print The Pirate Daughter's Promise with Createspace. It will be an updated version, but not too different. Just little things I've felt I wanted to change or add to. It will also have a new cover, which I'm very excited about. I will write more about it once I get farther, but I'm hoping it won't take long. I'd like to have it published within the next month or two.
