What the *bleep* is up with The Courier?

I know, I know. On Monday I mentioned I’d talk about the new project with R.J. Robyn today. Well, we won’t be ready for our official announcement until next Friday, so you’ll have to wait until then.  If you don’t want to wait, you can peek in on us at http://bloodlegger.blogspot.com.  We finished a short pitch so you can get a general idea of what the story is about.

So instead I thought I’d provide an update on The Courier. First of all it has a new website at http://thecouriernovel.blogspot.com.  Why did I move it?  I never could find a template I liked on WordPress, and I’m too cheap to purchase access to the CSS.  I LOVE THE NEW SITE!!

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I’m entering it in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Gold Contest, and I’ll be shipping it off by Monday.

I’m still wrapping up the first novel on the new website, and there are new parts released a couple days a week while I concentrate on editing.  Work has slowed on the next novel though.  I got a little burned out on the story, but the new project has provided a renewed incentive to continue on.

That’s about it for now.  Hope you’ll drop by and check out the new site.

The Courier is a Co-WINNNER

WHOO HOO!!! The Courier is a co-winner in the Textnovel Online Fiction Contest with Catherine Mambretti, author of Chalk Ghost, about “a ghost trying to unravel the mystery of her own death, which also turns out to be the only way she can save a young, deaf Chippewa mother named Lily Whitehorse and her infant son who now occupy the same apartment where the ghost died.” Congratulations to Takatsu as well for winning Readers’ Choice for Second Hand Memories. It involves high school love and the tragic loss of memory by a young girl.

Looking back, I’m so glad I entered The Courier in Textnovel’s literary contest. The journey to becoming a co-winner has been incredibly rewarding both personally and professionally. Thanks to my family and friends for supporting me through the process and for being equally excited about my success. And a special thanks to Textnovel and its members for recognizing The Courier and for providing a supportive online environment where writers can help each other grow.
