Book Two Update

Well, it seems that book two is longer than I expected. Rather than create a monster I will be using some of its material in book three. For a while I thought I might just go ahead and finish the story with book two, but that idea is now out the window.

The working title, "The Loom of Kanarrah" is no longer functional so I'll be brainstorming for a new one.

So, the progression bar on the right will remain at about 50% for a while longer. Especially since I'm not sure just how long the book will be. Progress is being made, however.

My hopes for publication this year are now officially dashed. 2016 for sure.

The Color of Music.

Do you see colors when you listen to music? If so you get to suffer from 'synesthesia,' a rare condition in which some people actually see the weft and waft of colors from the tunes they listen to. Here is a great article, with an interactive test, about the condition. See if you too can see the same colors as these lucky people. Click "What Color Is This Song?

Another demonstration of sound and it's hidden impact on our lives. Vibrations

Spring Into Books Event

This month I'll be involved with my first book event, "Spring Into Books," sponsored by the Oquirrh Chapter of the League of Utah Writers. Authors aplenty will be at the Viridian Events Center in West Jordan, Utah, many of whom will be doing readings and classes for those who are interested in writing their own stories and poems.

Of course there will be games and prizes throughout the evening. If you are in the area and enjoy books, and the reading of them, you'll find new stories hot off the minds of new and established authors. It will be fun to rub elbows with successful as well as up and coming authors.

Join us on May 23, 2015, 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Viridian West Jordan Library and Events Center.

"The Loom of Kanarrah" UPDATE: Progress has been slow. A few of the characters are having trouble getting over some hurdles, but I'm confident they can do it. Summer events and the family "farm" (i.e. gardens) will be demanding attention, too. I swear, I don't know how more prolific writers make time for all of it.
