Cody Kennedy (www.CKennedyAuthor.blogspot.com) invited me to participate in The Next Big Thing Blog Tour and I couldn’t resist the ongoing game in which authors talk about their favorite thing: their work, more particularly, their Work in Progress. The trials and tribulations of being an author, published or not, are challenging on any day, but the sense of community encouraged by games such as these makes it all worthwhile.

There are so many people to thank for what I’m about to announce and it would be an injustice to do this without appreciating their efforts. This list is in no particular order because I don’t want people to think I prize one over another, that simply is not the case at all. These are my friends. These are my family. These are the people I love. If you don’t already know them, click on each of them and you’ll discover why I welcome each of them into my heart.
Okay, with the saccharine out of the way, I’m pleased to announce that I have submitted Pitch, the story of Taylor, Jackson, Benny, Addy, Becca and Kevin to Harmony Ink for consideration to be published. I don’t know what the answer will be, but even if they say no I know in my heart that I did a pretty decent thing thanks to the people you’re about to meet.
The lovely people at Chicks & Dicks Rainbow asked me to do a guest blog for them. The title is Many Beginnings and might give you an insight why I write.
I’m grateful for the opportunity that they gave me. It really made my day.
Thanks to some amazing people my first potential book, Pitch, could actually be ready to submit to a publisher soon.
Pitch is the story of Taylor Andrews, a high school student, who falls for the school’s newest addition Jackson Kern. Jackson is everything Taylor isn’t. Handsome, athletic, charismatic. Taylor dreams of Jackson, but Becca Monroe has already staked her claim.
Taylor knows that he’s out of his league, but he can’t seem to stop going to see the school’s star pitcher in action. When Becca tells him that she and Jackson are aware of his crush and that they’re disgusted by him, Taylor’s world goes into a spin.
After Taylor is the victim of an assault it puts him on the path to finding out who his true friends are, but there’s more trouble coming and Taylor could lose everything.
Without the invaluable assistance of KC Wells who recently published her first novel, Learning to Love: Sean & Michael and Sjd Peterson who is the creator of the Whispering Pines series, Battle Buddies and Tuck & Cover, Simple, and some great upcoming works) this book would never have gotten ready for publication and I’m indebted to both of these amazing people.
