Finishing a draft and more

I exceeded Stephen King's ninety-day limit on drafts and departed from my "plotter" outline on more than one occasion, but in the end I did what I set out out to achieve. I completed the first draft of The Memory Tree several weeks ahead of schedule.

The novel, the sequel to River Rising and its twin in length, tone, and subject matter, now undergoes a revision process that will take about three months. I hope to publish the book, the second of five planned for the Carson Chronicles series, by the third week of May.

A cover reveal on this blog is set for later this month.

Earlier this month, Publisher's Weekly announced that it had selected Hannah's Moon for a BookLife review within the next several weeks. I will offer more information on that as it becomes available.

Work continues on the Hannah's Moon audiobook. Allyson Voller, who narrated The Mirror, is currently completing the project. River Rising, narrated by Chaz Allen, was released on Audible on January 5. All other published books are currently available in audio.

Readers will have an opportunity to download The Mirror Kindle book for free between February 24 and 28. The novel, the last in the Northwest Passage series, makes its first appearance on the prestigious BookBub promotion site on February 25.
