Meet the Assistant Editor

To say that we're having fun is an understatement; we're having a blast!  This photo was the second day of the Leaf & String Festival and Authors on Grayson St. Book Fair.

What started as a 62 page hand written manuscript (1979), became a favorite read each summer for my daughters, then became a way of sharing my heart with my grandchildren and then two books.

Each book represents the siblings; there are two more siblings.  I plan to write at least two more books in the series.

Now to get my Assistant Editor helping me with the Elf story I hope to publish before Christmas!

31 Chapters, how many more???

I just completed my 31st chapter of my re-write for my Elf story.
As I've retyped my manuscript, I discovered the original chapters are much longer than I like to have, so several of them I'm dividing.
I like to keep my chapters 5-10 pages long.  I think it gives the reader a better experience of completing chapters, but also allows for them to find a part of the story they might like to reread quicker.
How many chapters do I have left?  I don't even have the answer!  Lol!  I am well passed 92,000 words and counting!  ;)
