Progress Update: The Withering

Hey everyone! My debut novel The Withering will be coming out soon!

The Chosen meme there's that word again... soon.  Jesus laughing and smiling played by Jonathan Roumie.

I don't know precisely when it will be, but The Withering looks like it will be ready for release in late 2021 or early 2022!

Just a few days ago, I sent in my latest round of revisions, which I think is going to be the final round of big changes. After this latest round, I'm feeling really, really good about where this story is at. My hope is that after this, the only things really left to do is to run through it to make sure there are no typos, make sure everything is formatted correctly, and then we can get this ball rolling!

Author meme have you revised the revision?  Yes, but now we need to revise the revision of the revision.

So what else is happening? Well, I'm so glad you asked! I'm working on artwork including the cover design and a map!

I've also got another story coming out very soon! It is a short story called Safeship that will be published in Ambassador International's upcoming speculative fiction anthology titled Into the Unknown. I think that's supposed to come out in the fall.

There are a lot of exciting things coming up, so make sure you are signed up for my email list to get the latest updates!

Thanks for following along on my journey to publication!
