Updates: What's Going On In My World

Sometimes, there is nothing to be said but to give all of you an update about what is going on in my little corner of the world. That's the freedom of this blog, I suppose. I hope all of you have been working on your own projects or contemplating the start of some piece of writing. Writers, we must never stop writing!

Anyway, I had a great Easter, but it was marred by my son's illness. In fact, it led to me spending the night in the hospital at the beginning of this week. Obviously, that's no fun for anyone. Imagine putting your one-year old in the hospital for the first time since he was born. His fear and uncertainty about what is happening and the sense of worry that fills your own heart. I feel for anybody who has had to deal with a child's illness let alone if something more serious is happening. I am thankful that my son is recovering from his respiratory condition. (I just have to make sure he gets his medication on time until it's done.)

On To Business

Well, it's been eventful. I've just signed a contract to co-author a non-fiction book. It's the largest paying gig that I've ever taken on, and I'm pretty excited about it. Today is the official start date. For the next three months, I will be working with the other author to complete a manuscript. After this, I get the privilege of publishing this book via my publishing company. It's a big deal. There is a lot of potential for this book. It may garner some local interest in my area since it concerns events that impacted the people of Vermillion county Indiana, and even those cross the line here in Illinois.

Concerning my father's book, we are still gearing up for an additional series of signings and events. We're doing what we can to promote his book. If you haven't seen it already, there is a short news spot on a local television station. These upcoming events will be posted on his website as well.

That's all for now folks, I'm pretty busy. I just wanted to give you some news. Until next time.
