Hello everyone. Welcome to the first post of Writing Updates/WIP (Work in Progress).

How did this new category come about?

My author friend suggested that I provide my readers with a blog that keeps them informed of what I’m working on. Since I have so many projects in the works I thought it was a good idea.

Lets get to it shall we.

Witch’s Dilemma:

This tale is almost ready to go the publishers.

Witch’s Dilemma, a Levi West novel and part of the LACN Investigations Series, is at this time in my WIP file.

The manuscript review is complete, the corrections made , the first round of edits has also been completed along with the final proofread from the editor. Witch’s Dilemma is now ready for the last in-house proofread, which is in progress.

The cover art is complete, the inside illustrations are in the process and scheduled for completion 8-26-2016. Once they are complete I will place them in the manuscript, and send it to be formatted.

The teaser has already been written; Witch’s Dilemma Teaser.

The blogs leading up to the release of Witch’s Dilemma will begin posting here on 8-5-2016 and will continue for eight weeks.

The book is scheduled for release 10-21-2016.  A book release party is scheduled for 10-21-2016 at Atomic Nashville, this is an event you don’t want to miss so mark your calendars.

Rise from the Ruins

Rise from the Ruins is also in the WIP file. The manuscript is in its first draft,  80% complete and  scheduled at the editors by 8-1-2016.

Rise from the Ruins is also a Levi West Novel in the New Era Series, a paranormal thriller.

Rise from the Ruins, starts Levi’s adventure when he turns 18, and inherits the billion dollar fortune his family has left him. Between his personal demons and mental disorders, plus the paranormal activity at the ranch and the fact that part of his job is to defeat them, he is not real sure he can take over or even wants to.

Will a visit from his deceased grandmother and mom change his mind. Will a trip to the Garden of Sun, an uncharted and unheard of place on the ranch do the trick? Will he continue to fall for his best friend Elena, or will her being in the will cause problems? Will he be able to handle the two people he despises, Charlotte and Tiffany?

Tentative release date for this book is 11-25-2016.

A Princess and a Rebel

This is last tale in my WIP folder. The manuscript is in its first draft and only 30-40 percent complete.

A Princess and A Rebel is a twisted love story between an author and his publicist who is fighting for his attention while his divorce is still haunting him.

This will be my first attempt of writing erotica. The story has a strong plot and the sex is a part of the story, with a hell of an ending.

The manuscript has not been scheduled yet for a review with the editor.

I would like to thank each of you for supporting an unknown Independent Author. Until next update keep reading and enjoying life, we only live once.
