Normally, this is the season for getting my paper therapy on, and I'd be at the Western Washington Scrapbook Retreat in Port Townsend, WA, a wonderful place to hang with the ladies while I cut, glue, and soak up the coastal Fort Worden atmosphere. But this year it was canceled. Covid.

#3 remains a button push away from being published. So while I play
the waiting game...here's a spooky blackout poem from page 3 of book 3 called Three.

Book #3 is coming soon to a mega online store nearest you. It's a YA story about lies, spies, love, and adventure. Need a bigger taste? Check out the official back copy:

Book #3 is completely written, rewritten, edited, formatted, polished and ready for consumption, but is currently in a holding pattern due to a contest I entered back in March. I can't publish until the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) names the WIP Award winners! Could be later today...could be Halloween.
While I wait, here's a sneak peak of chapter one using TagCrowd, whose claim to fame is to "Create your own word cloud from any text to visualize word frequency." Great for editing to all you authors and writers out there.
You might ask, What's this book about? My answer: Stay tuned :) I realize this isn't much to go on except to show I have unusual character names, and I used the words "hands" and "something" and "turned" often enough. So curious!
