Last week, I told you how close I was to publishing my aunt’s diary. I was excited at being so close to completion! Since then, I haven’t received anything from the formatter or had a response to my anxious queries. I hope he’s just on vacation.
I was also upbeat about the next instalment of my series. But Book 4 of The Modest Proposal Institute is also proving harder to write than I’d hoped. In fact, I had more ideas and words for Book 5 than I had for Book 4. Book 5 was supposed to be the end of the series but I have a ‘gap’ in time that’s hard to fill without making up stuff just to fill it. (I know — that’s what authors are supposed to do, invent stuff:-). Anyhow, instead of inventing filler, I’ve started reworking my ‘Story Arc’ to merge Books 4 and 5; that way the reader will have enough interesting incidents to satisfy them. With luck, I won’t need to re-write everything I’ve written:-(
And on that cheerful note, I’ll close this post and invite you to pick up Books 1 to 3 on my Amazon Author Page.
