I have finally finished my fourth book, Mother Earth: Return to the Womb. The final editing and book cover still have to be done, but I wanted to let everyone know it should soon be available. I think your patience will be rewarded with a good read.
I thought I should give an update on my current book. I have been doing more living than writing over the past half year, so I haven't made great progress. I should have the first draft completed by early 2012. It will take a couple of months to clean it up, so the book should be completed by early summer.
While waiting, be sure to get out in the world and do your own living and loving. Remember, your soul, your heart, and your body can't grow and strengthen unless you challenge them. This holiday season my fervent prayer is you live generously, give generously, and love generously.
God bless and Merry Christmas!
In this blog entry, I want to tell you a little something about me, about my next project and give out the one piece of advice I wish I had learned much earlier in my life.
Although I love writing fantasy and science fiction, my favorite author is Louis L’Amour. His stories always have the elements I feel are most important in life – honor, love, and good defeating evil. We are nothing without our honor and love. I am old fashioned because I do think there is good and evil, and I always want good to defeat evil.
My newest book has these elements, but they are different from my first works. For one, instead of falling in love, my character’s love is well aged and deeper than the heat one finds in my first books. That love is the driving force of the book. Even so, the book is not a romance. Like my others, it is an action fantasy. The first draft is about half to two thirds done. I plan on being done with it by the end of the year at the latest.
While I love writing, I also love living. I recently went skydiving with my daughter and her boyfriend. I think I shamed him into going by agreeing to go. He had said no to my daughter at first. If ever I need to have a character jump out of an airplane, I will now know how to describe it. Let’s just say it is nothing like the falling feeling you sometimes have in your sleep or the stomach-in-your-throat feeling of a roller coaster. Even though it wasn’t on my bucket list, I did enjoy it.
Here is my one piece of advice. Remember, the only way to really live life is to live without the four letter F word, fear, ruling it.
Kilaal's Sword, the third work created by author Richard S. Wiggins, Jr. made available in both paperback and eBook, will celebrate its official release in the near future, but there's no reason you can't go ahead and enjoy it now. It has been touted by early reviewers to be his best work yet.
