First of all, I want to thank everyone who downloaded their free copy of La Bruja del Barrio Loco for the big Labor Day Weekend giveaway! For my first giveaway, I think it was a great success. Supporters, friends, and fans downloaded (drum roll please): 23 copies! I hope to get some positive reviews, even star reviews. This Labor Day, was was chock full of writing victories:
So, in that vein, I am taking the advice of another writer who suggested that I set the novel aside for a while. I am doing that because I need to get into the rhythm of writing and revising. And I have three more projects for September and beyond: (1) The Awakening (Book #3 in La Bruja del Barrio Loco Series), (2) A set of three magical realism novellas for young adults; I am 2/3 done, and (3) My short story collection Down South Where the Water Is Warm, which I need to revise. As you can see, I have my work cut out for this month. I will have more news as I complete my next book.
OK my friends, have a fantastic day!
Believe in your writing; believe in yourself as a writer. #Resist!
