PROGRESS REPORT: WEEK ENDING JUNE 16, 2018

Okay, you may think this week's Progress Report is a repeat of the last two weeks or so, but it isn't.
Why?
Three reasons.

01. I'm now on Chapter 15 of HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE, BOOK 3: FEMME FATALE.

02. I will hopefully be getting "Kiri's Quest" back sometime this week from my friendly neighborhood beta proofreader.

03.

Take care, and I'll see you around the Internet.

PROGRESS REPORT: WEEK ENDING JUNE 9, 2018

Well folks, I hate to sound like a broken record, but this week was next week last week.πŸ˜‰

Still working on HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE, BOOK 3: FEMME FATALE while my friendly neighborhood beta-proofreader is going over the Companion Dragons adventure "Kiri's Quest".

I will be pausing work on Hugh to make my final read through of the quest when I get the manuscript back. Then I will go back to Hugh and continue working on him until that's done before going on to my next projects.

So take care, and I'll see you around the Internet.

PROGRESS REPORT: WEEK ENDING JUNE 2, 2018

Basically, what it all boils down to is that my friendly neighborhood beta-proofreader Nancy Hansen is still going over the second draft of my Companion Dragons novella "Kiri's Quest" while I continue working on HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE, BOOK 3: FEMME FATALE.

Once the above is totally completed, upcoming projects WILL include a couple of short stories I want to write, going back to that "new idea" I've kicked around and mentioned in previous Progress Reports over the last few months, and what will eventually become PROJECT ALPHA, BOOK 3.

Life IS good, especially since I passed my cardiologist exam last week. 😁
My heartπŸ’“ and overall health are about as good as a man my age who has (luckily!πŸ’šπŸ€) survived both congestive heart failure AND an aortic aneurysm can be.
I still have my good days😊 and my bad onesπŸ˜”, but as my Dad would say, at least I'm still above ground.

Well, I better get back to writing now.
See you around the Internet!

PROGRESS REPORT: WEEK ENDING MAY 26, 2018

REMEMBER THE VETERANS!
I hope those celebrating are having a nice Memorial Day weekend, and remember that the holiday
has more importance than just being for sales, cookouts, and the unofficial start of summer.

Have just about finished my second pass of "Kiri's Quest", the Companion Dragon novella I've written for my friendly neighborhood beta-proofreader Nancy Hansen.

When that's done, it's back to Chapter 14 of HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE, BOOK 3: FEMME FATALE, where things are really starting to heat up and come together.

In any event, take care, and I'll see you around the Internet.

PROGRESS REPORT: WEEK ENDING MAY 19, 2018

Still need to take a photo of me at my computer someday.
A LOT of writing this past week!

I finished Chapter 13 of HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE, BOOK 3: FEMME FATALE and was well into Chapter 14 when I got the manuscript for "Kiri's Quest" back from my friendly neighborhood beta-proofreader Nancy Hansen.

Going over it in earnest now, for there are (unfortunately) a few sections that need some reworking on what will be my first Companion Dragons novella.

Not sure exactly when I will get back to HUGH, but definitely once I send KIRI back to its editor.

Until then, take care.

PROGRESS REPORT: WEEK ENDING MAY 12, 2018

First and foremost, I hope everyone who celebrated had a great Mother's Day.

I have completed the first draft of "Kiri's Quest", the Companion Dragons' novella I wrote for my friendly neighborhood beta-proofreader, but Nancy Hansen will just now be getting to it this week because her computer has just now been repaired and is operational again.

I AM back writing HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE, BOOK 3: FEMME FATALE.
Will be working on it until Nancy has had a chance to go over Kiri and sends her notes/editing back for any revisions she might want.

So until then...

PROGRESS REPORT: WEEK ENDING MAY 5, 2018

For those who celebrated (responsibly), I hope you enjoyed Cinco de Mayo and/or Free Comic Book Day.
What Hansen system seems like, not actual image!

I know I said this last week, but I AM almost done with the first draft of my Companion Dragon novella.

I just want to finish going over the last few pages myself. Then I have to wait for my friendly neighborhood beta-proofreader to give her okay to send her the manuscript, because she's having computer problems right now.

Speaking of Nancy Hansen, her latest novel JEZEBEL JOHNSTON: MOURNING STAR is now available from Airship 27 in both print and Kindle editions!
The fourth exciting adventure of the female pirate has interior illustrations by Rob Davis and a cover by Ted Hammond.

I know Nancy was working on the fifth volume when her computer went kablooie, so Jez fans take heart.
There WILL be more in the future.

Speaking of which, I will be getting back to HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE, BOOK 3: FEMME FATALE this week and once both it and the dragon are finished...???

See you around the Internet!
