Ballad Girl

One more fantasy release this year:

Jeremy is the son of the leader of the village of Bald Rock. One day his father asks Jeremy to find a place for Mildred, a young woman who’s turned up and taken over an abandoned house.

Mildred tells Jeremy she wants to turn the house in a place where ballads are kept, a “Ballad House.” He’s talked into helping her, along with three other young people in the village. The five form The Order of The Ballad House, and set about remembering and writing the tales they’ve heard.

What starts as a diversion from village life becomes more than Jeremy ever dreamed possible. He’ll encounter magic and monsters, and feel fear and love. His world will be turned upside-down because of Mildred, the Ballad Girl.
The book is out now. I hope you like it!


Writing Progress, October 2020


Here’s the latest on how much I’m writing.

October was, well, a month. When I was writing I was productive. But I had days where errands & minor sinus troubles kept me from writing.

I started the month by writing two short stories, with both coming in at about 7100 words. I finished a 45,000-word short novel just into this month. That amounts to 218 pages written. However, if I’d met my session goals I would have written 264 pages.

So, because of events, I didn’t write much the first week of this month. But I have a project to get going on, and another to get to after it’s done. Here’s hoping for progress, and hope for you if you’re taking part in NaNoWriMo!
