News from Karen’s Writing Desk
Each month end, I’ll send out my hot off the press news as a newsletter. They are never complete without a few selected books from other authors. These will always be ones I’ve read and enjoyed.
Since my last update, I have completed the first draft of A Hand to Hold. It’s story about finding love as an elderly person. I’m also determined to get the rewrite of Joanna’s Journey done, and immediately follow it up with Joanna’s Destiny. They are both novels that have been unpublished for almost two years now. Between those two, I’ll work on the second draft of A Hand To Hold,
I’ve four books waiting to be edited, Play the Game, a romantic novella that has been there longest, and Distant Time has had one edit, and in line for a second. That one is still awaiting its cover. The Sound of Evil and The Ghost on the Stairs are the second and third books in The Cassidy Newbold Clairvoyant Collection and awaiting their turn.
I also write regularly on a variety of subjects both on here and the Norns Triad Publications blog. These articles are linked to our newsletter, of which I’m very proud because it’s more of a magazine for bibliophiles.
