It’s only 4 days into the new year and it’s been insane! My secular work (you know, the kind that actually helps you feed your family, pays for your car, etc.) has been pretty busy. It’s definitely a good thing yet at times can be a little overwhelming with my other responsibilities/activities.
I was able to get out and volunteer the past few days which always makes me feel refreshed and ready to take on what’s next.
My little boy has been out of school since December 18th which has been a struggle trying to keep him occupied and dragging him along on all the things I usually do when he’s in school. He’s been really good though. He acts so grown up that sometimes I forget he’s only in kindergarten and not just a tiny little man.
OK, moving off of my soapbox of info you probably don’t care about…
Sons of Atlantis
So here’s what’s happening with the story that I really hope you are all enjoying so far:
- I had made some promises about Audio versions of the chapters for those who may not have time to read. I have uploaded Chapter 2’s audiochapter however, I will be removing it. I am not happy with the finished product and it needs work. I still plan in the future to make an audio recording of the story, just not right now. The application I have for recording is fairly basic in that it doesn’t allow for noise cancelling or removal (I.E. My son in the background asking for something, my dog barking at the wind, the cat pouncing on something she found, you get the idea. Lots of unwanted sound effects!) and until I can find an application that suits my needs I will be holding off on the recordings.
- On a better note, I have been working on Chapter 3 diligently. I have a rough (and I mean ROUGH, like was up all night, didn’t get in til 3am, trying to wear last night’s makeup to work rough!) draft and I am really happy with where it’s going. I am making tons of great changes along the way as the characters and story develops.
- Although I am eagerly awaiting January 21st, the release date for Chapter 3, I am excited to announce that I will be sharing a brief excerpt of Chapter 3 before the official release date! Keep checking back to see when that will be released!
If you don’t already, follow me on twitter. I post updates there along with things that interest me and it’s kind of a way to get to know me a little better.
