I am (not so) patiently waiting for my book cover artist to finish his magic so I can finally publish “Caysee Rides: A Story of Freedom and Friendship” as an e-book. Caysee makes her way from a ruined Chicago to the Pacific Rim where education and freedom offer a better life. Riding a modern day Underground Railroad, fourteen year old Caysee also discovers that friendship is as valuable as freedom. Look for a sample chapter on this site next week and the full release by the end of March.
In the meantime, I’ll be submitting a couple of works to writing contests. I can’t encourage you enough as a writer to consider entering a competition or two. The challenge does wonders to sharpen one’s writing skills, and what better accolades to the back of your book cover than “Winner of such-and-such award”?
I’m also doing quite a bit of writing on the economic/political scene in the US, borne of my own original research. If that’s of interest to you, click here.
Here’s to creativity, patience, and maybe a winning poem or two. As for me, I am grateful to call myself a writer.
