Progress (?) Report

Confusing Traffic Sign

Well, OK, I heard from another publisher who will let me know in a few weeks if they will publish my book. From what I can determine, they’re a thinly veiled vanity press. I’ll look at the contract if they offer me one and proceed from there.

I’m making good progress on the second novel in the series, On Eagle Wings Upborne. I’ve written about 10,000 words so far, and the ideas and scenes are coming easily. If it’s anything like Wings, it’ll run to 80,000 words, so I figure I should be done some time in August. Faster than the first novel, but it’s not a speed contest. I’ll keep you informed!


About huckfinn47

I taught high school English for 32 years, all at Robinson High School in Fairfax, VA. My students called me "Mr. V," and I was fortunate to have some terrific young people in my classes. I have made contact with some of them, particularly on Facebook, and enjoy seeing what they're up to. My other nickname, given to me by our then assistant pastor Jim Vaught, is Lieutenant Dan, after the Gary Sinise character in Forrest Gump, one of my favorite movies. I never got anywhere near military service, so the name is somewhat ironic. I greatly admire our troops and respect their sacrifices. On the Wings of Morning is my first novel worth talking about.
