Split four ways
1 Ruth, a short story in the Glops series, is with the editor, with me, with the editor, with me ... It's almost finished. In the Holy Bible, the book of Ruth is a complete one hundred eighty degrees from the books of Joshua and Judges before it. It is the same way for The Story of Glops series. The Land of Milk and Honey involves the Israelites’ cycle of sin, numerous battles, wars, and lots of death. This short story, Ruth, is a welcome change. It is about women surviving their loss and grief. It focuses on devotion, hope, redemption, love, and family.
2. Slow Dancing with Hope is a short story for inclusion in the Texas High Plains Writers Short Story Anthology. The topic for this 2022 edition is "Hope." The guidelines state that the story can be 500 to 2500 words. I am almost finished with this little story of about 1800 words.
3. Balaam, Short Story 5a, in the Glops series is going to be an audiobook. I uploaded files to ACX last night. It should be ready to hear in two weeks.
4. Land of Milk and Honey, the newest book in the Glops series, is the next audiobook project. I have recordings for about half of the book. After making recordings for the entire book, I will go back into the recordings and add sound effects. It is a "work in progress."
I am having the best time writing and planning and advertising and signing books and ... Wow! This is fun!
Writing on Ruth continues
I received "Ruth" back from my editor. I needed to make significant changes. So, I did, and sent it back to her. Then, I slept. When I woke up, I knew I needed to make more changes. Having done that, I have now sent it to my editor a third time. Here's hoping it's better.
Divided States by Rick Treon
mostly lost on me, but the terrain is exceptionally familiar, set in New Orleans, the Texas Panhandle, Oklahoma, Kansas, and southwestern Colorado. In Part II. Empty Quiver and Part III. Nucflash, the excitement escalates with vivid tactical actions including bullets and bodies, extremely well described by the author, and confusion as to who is on which side of the principal dilemma. Part IV wraps up the story satisfactorily, leaving room for the possibility of a sequel. I am pleased to give Divided States the five stars that Rick Treon has earned. Furthermore, I look forward to reading his next book.
