First an update on the technology wars; my iPod has gone missing. Either it has deflected to the other side or is now a prisoner of war. Search efforts continue however I fear the very worst. It is now becoming obvious I severely underestimated the enemy. More to follow.

Now back to our regularly scheduled blog.

I haven't been blogging much lately because I am deep in editing mode with book two; EMBRACE OF THE CALL. I must admit I am enjoying the entire process even more the second time around! Maybe it's because I have found my groove or maybe it's because I know the characters better. Whatever the reason I am over-the-top excited about this second installment of THE CONDUIT series. Book one was mandatory because it introduced the legend and the characters. Well now that story has been told and I am free to take them on all sorts of wild and crazy adventures! I am the first to admit that book two is definitely more fast paced than it's predecessor. And this steam engine isn't about to slow down! Spoiler Alert: EMBRACE has a cliffhanger ending leaving it open for a third! Truth be told I have story ideas laid out for two more books in this series. It is a personal pet peeve of mine when a book series regurgitates the same story over and over again. Rest assured that will not be the case for the Garrett kids. Just when you think you know what's in store for Celeste, I will find away to pull the rug out from under her! Can't wait to share the adventure with all of you!

Nothing new to report on the agent/publisher hunt. I have people reading and considering my work but no news yet. If I have learned one thing it's that the literary world is less than speedy. But perseverance pays off and I'm not goin' anywhere!
