Now as I work on my second attempt at publishing, a longer book this time, the very first story I wrote took off in a direction I had not expected and wrote itself. I even had to go back and change the title. It’s just like dealing with real people in your life. Just when you think you know them and what makes them tick, you discover hidden depths and begin to understand motivations. To be an author is not to control the universe you think you have created. Sometimes all you can do is ride the whirlwind and try to take notes as you go. I promised the readers of my first book I would post the first few pages of the second book so they can anticipate the rest as I finish the book. I’m going to try really hard to get it up on Amazon in print and ebook by Halloween.
