What’s in the works


The Hunt for Freddy Bills

A lot has changed in the last month.

Book 2 in the Maze has taken some maddening turns and experienced quite a few glorious writer blocks. I’ve stared at an empty page for days on this one, but not with the anxiety that I may never write another word. The possibilities of this story are many but I’ve narrowed it down to a general direction and, I think, a fairly good twist. Which I like. 

Originally, book 2 was supposed to be The Essence of Sunny Grimm. But Fredrick Kaleb Billingsley (aka Freddy Bills) has been the main player. Since I’m halfway through the rough draft, I figured a new title was in order.

This one might take quite a few passes to reach a final product. Anticipating a late winter release.
