Vacated for 8 days to Washington, DC and Ocean City, MD with the fam. It was awesome. I’m much more relaxed and ready to finish up Book 1. Update for those of you playing along at home: The cover art is coming along nicely and I’m incorporating feedback from a beta reader who pointed out […]
I know, I know. It’s been months since my last post. Unfortunately, health issues have a way of pushing everything else aside for a while. But, if you persevere and do what the doctors and physical therapists (thanks Ashley and Allison!) tell you to do, eventually you get to push back. It’s been six months […]
Book 2 is officially named An Element of Creation! More information about the story of Ally and Lucy (and their new little brother Cody) is coming soon!
Last time I was able to blog here was over a year ago. (Insert frowny emoji here.) Worse, the content of that entry was being happy that I was back from a distraction that took me away from The Other Realms for a while and I was ready to focus on it again. The good […]
So life happened and I found I needed to take a little time off of my Jordan books to work on another project. (More on that at davidburgett.com) But, I’ve missed Ally and Lucy and Raymund. They’ve been calling out to me and I just let them all know that I’ve come back to Ouverture […]
Yesterday I attended the 2017 Kansas City Writing Workshop. It was great! Marisa Corvisiero was the main speaker, and I enjoyed listening to her talk. She was energetic, friendly, and enthusiastic. Her instruction rambled a bit from as she directed her speech at once squirrel after another, but much of that was audience-driven. The members […]
I’ve spent most of my writing time over the last two months on Book 1…final edits, preparing a Query letter to agents, finding agents who might be interested. It’s been exhausting and wonderful and terrifying. Intellectually, I know and understand why my book will get rejected 50 times. Even the best book ever written would […]
It’s been a while since I’ve had an update on Book 1, A SENSE OF MAGICK. That’s because I’ve been busy revising, fixing, correct, tweaking, and hopefully improving it based on feedback from a very nice agent who helped point out some of the flaws, both in the text and in my query. I have […]
I just made progress on The Other Realms Book 3 – Untitled! So far I’m 85% complete on the Outlining phase. [mybookprogress progress=”0.85″ phase_name=”Outlining” book=”1″ book_title=”The Other Realms Book 3 – Untitled” bar_color=”CB3301″ mbt_book=”140″] The good news is that I’ve made enough progress outline to support starting NaNoWriMo in just 27 hours and 32 minutes!
So I’m not a huge horror movie fan but I don’t actively avoid them either. As such, I’ve seen a few zombie movies and some hack and slash gory movies in my time. You would think that the goal of these movies would be to prepare you for real life. You want to be ready […]
