: Congratulations to Leigh Ann Gregorie and Mary Reiss! They have won signed copies of “The Canticle Kingdom”. (Yes, I decided to choose two winners due to the number of entries.
Also congratulations to Debbie Davis who has won a three-chapter manuscript critique. I’m excited to see her work. If you did not win this time around, don’t worry. I’ll do another blog hope near the end of October with more chances to win. Thank you to you all for entering and I hope that you will continue to visit my blog. I’ll try to make it as interesting as possible!
Writing Update: I’ve been doing a crazy project that fell in my lap this week. A local law firm has tasked me with translating about 40 pages of German legal documents into English. If you’ve ever studied legal documents, you know how complex they can be. German legal documents take this even a step further. They love huge compound words that translate to five or six words when translated. Working on this has taken up most of my usual writing time this week, so sadly, I did not make much progress on anything.
The commission for this work, however, will be a large help to my family. I’ll just commit to work twice as hard this week in order to make progress on my works in progress. In the coming weeks, I’m going to introduce you all to the works I’m going to be submitting soon so you can get a better idea of what I’m working on.
Looking for Bookclubs: I’m looking for book clubs who are interesting in reading one or both of my books in their book club. If you live around Salt Lake City, I’d love to come visit in person, but if you live anywhere else, I’d love to participate through Skype. Leave me a comment if you are interested, or send me an email at email@example.com
