Update on The Renown’s Captains (working title)

Aug. 2019 – I am feverishly trying to finish up the next book in the Tween Sea & Shore Series that continues the story of Abraham and Yvette and the characters in The Ship’s Carpenter and introduces new historical figures that add political intrigue, revenge, and surprises. Look for it at press shortly.

Oct. 2019 – I was sidelined by marketing projects for awhile but I’m back on the book. Came up with a neat idea yesterday to pull be out of a bind.

Nov. 2019 – I estimate I have just one or two small incidents to create and then I’ll be on to the BIG CLIMAX of the story. I hope.

Dec. 2019 – I’ve just completed the story. Woohoo! The climatic ending (IMHO) is a bell-ringer. Now I can focus on the long, drawn out process of rewrites and edits before I send it out to my beta readers.

Jan. 2020 – Today I finished the rewrites and grammar, spelling, punctuation checks. The book will be sent out to my beta readers this week. I can’t wait to see what they think of it.
