I simply wanted to wish all writers a good writing day–today and always.  I also hope you will have excellent production on whatever project you are tackling.

Never doubt your abilities, and work on getting your first drafts done. They will not be perfect, but you will then have material to revise.

Remember to try to write every day and read everyday.

Happy Writing!

Whatever tools you use to write with, no matter your topic or idea, regardless of the genre, and despite the point in the process–planning, drafting, revising, or editing–, I wish you a productive, fulfilling, and joyful Writing Day!

Blog tour for my upcoming novel.

Standard

maledicus-final

Hello to everyone. I am planning on doing a blog post tour in October for my horror novel Maledicus: Investigative Paranormal Society Book I.  I will be setting the release date for the book soon, but it will probably be somewhere in the area of October 20.

The blog tour will probably run 2-3 weeks. I admit I should have this schedule set, but I am running a bit behind on some of the planning.  But as an absent-minded professor, this fits me perfectly!

If you are interested in hosting a post on a particular day, or on any day from October 1 through October 20, please email me at frenchc1955@yahoo.com .  The subject is something we can discuss with some possibilities being discussions of how I wrote the book, interviews with questions you prefer or those I can write, interviews with the characters, or themes of the novel. I am certainly not limiting the subject matter; those are simply suggestions.

Here is a sneak peak at the tee-shirt for the book!
