Adult Writing Workshop Reviews
"Through this class I was finally able to complete something that I am confident about."
"It bumped my thinking from left-brain to right-brain--a whole new mind!"
There's something about starting a new novel. It's like a budding relationship. You get that tingle in your stomach and chills when you think about it. Parts of you are unsure about where it will lead, but your heart is telling you to jump in because it feels so right. It also feels like that moment when you first find out you are going to have a baby. There is so much promise, anticipation, and hope. You don't know what each day will bring, but you are constantly filled with wonder at all the changes this new creation is bringing to your life.
It has been five years since Eyes of the Goddess: Book Two of the Fianna Cycle was published and nine years since the first book Warriors Within was published. I will never complain about how slow my favorite authors are in getting the next book out! Life got in the way and it always will, but I also wasn't sure where I wanted the third book to start from. I thought it would be 18 years into the future when the Child of Prophecy Eibhlin (Ay LEEN) mac Nessa mac Art has to fulfill her destiny to save Ireland. But after taking a course in preparing your plot (you never stop learning as a writer), I decided that there was too much to tell during those 18 years and I would be shortchanging the characters and my readers.
So Through the Mist will start off right where Eyes of the Goddess ended. I'm committed to having the first draft completed by Halloween where there will be a promotion for my readers to download the other two books. If you are interested in following along my wriitng journey, you can do so in a couple ways. (Braedon, I hope you are reading and paying close attention as you have waited most patiently!)
