Hello, readers! It’s Labor Day, so it’s time for another update. First up, the info you’ve all been waiting for: I’m working steadily on the new manuscript for HOW TO REMEMBER. I expect to have the first new draft turned in by October 1.
It’s fall - that magical time of year, filled with chillier temps and pumpkin spice, at least here in Northeast Ohio. For the last two years, I’ve written and self-pubbed a short story about the season, just because I love it so much. This year, I don’t have time, since I’m working on the rewrite, but if you’d like to check out my previous titles, here’s the link on Amazon. A few are also on Biblioboard and OverDrive if your library has a subscription. I always donate any profits I make. Last year I gave money to hurricane relief - I’m not sure what the cause will be this year, but I’ll be sure to let everyone know.
Be on the lookout for more news about the anthology I’m working on, too. In the meantime, enjoy that fall weather, when and if it shows up!!
Hello, readers! Must be a tradition... my last update was at Memorial Day, and this one’s at the Fourth of July. I guess the next time you’ll hear from me will be at Labor Day. :-)
Big news - the book is now in the developmental editing phase. If you’re unfamiliar with the stages of editing, this is the phase where we take a close look at the story and find ways to strengthen it by changing key pieces. With the help of my Inkshares editor, I’ve taken HOW TO REMEMBER down to the studs. My awesome writers’ group helped me find a few lingering issues, and I submitted my revised outline today. We are one step closer to getting a great book into your hands.
I’ve also begun blogging with a bunch of great friends and Inkshares writers over at Writing Bloc. Follow us on Twitter at @Writing_Bloc for lots of great content! We’re currently working on a short story anthology, and I’m the lead on editing.
Last but not least, I’m nearing the midpoint of the draft for THE ENIGMA VARIATIONS, my latest project. All in all, the writing world is busy and good for me right now!
Let me know what you are all up to, readers - I’d love to hear from you! Happy week!
Hello, readers! I hope you are having a fine Memorial Day weekend. We tried to have a yard sale, but it got rained out, and then no one came (I really do need to work on my sales skills). Instead I’ll settle for writing and attempting to get through my massive TBR pile.
Lots going on in Dubiel-land. I can’t share much yet, but there are a few cool things in development. Let’s just say you’ll be able to read something I’ve written by the end of the year! I’m also nearly halfway done with the draft of my new novel, THE ENIGMA VARIATIONS. Not sure if I should crowdfund it or pursue traditional publishing. What say you, readers?
While you wait for news, visit me at www.caridubiel.com or in person at a few events coming up!
June 9, 2018 - I’ll be moderating the indie publishing panel at Killer Heat, at the South Euclid branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library.
June 23-24, 2018 - Hang out with me at the American Library Association conference. I’ll be roaming the exhibit floor. (Sadly, I will be gone before Michelle gets there.)
Happy reading and writing!!
