Boy, have I been busy lately! As I said in last week’s blog, I finished writing Eternal. Not that it means I’m totally done with the book. I’m now doing copy edits. (Don’t ask!) On top of that, I squeezed in a trip to Nashville, Tennessee for a conference. And I have to say, I had a great time. Did you know Nashville has a full size replica of the Parthenon in Athens? It was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition.
It was so cool I thought I’d share a few of my photos. The golden statue of Athena is what they thought the original statue (long since gone) looked like. She was really tall, but I guess if you are a Greek God, you would be pretty tall–or at least that’s how the mere mortals would portray you. And the torso with the six pack? Can’t you totally see that as Lucas? Or maybe Burnett?
This Friday, June 27th, I’ll be teaching a class at the Barbara Bush Library in Spring Texas. I’m teaching a Teen Writing Workshop from 11:00 AM till 12:30 PM. I’ll be giving tips on writing, how to plot, how to create memorable characters and how to make your book a page turner. So, if you are an aspiring author, live in the Houston, Texas area and are a student in grades 6th-12th, you won’t want to miss this. Follow the link for the Teen Writing Shop to register. I hope to see you there!
We have a winner from last week’s giveaway of an ARC of Reborn! There were a lot of great comments and the winner is Jessica Kilgore. Please email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Congratulations!
