The New Focus For On The Flipside

I'm in the process of having my header redesigned for On The Flipside and that's because I am changing the focus of this blog.


On The Upside I write about what's real - about my family, my children and my life.


On The Flipside I will write about the process I've been through writing my most recent novel. I am also planning on publishing excerpts as time goes along.





What I will tell you right now is:
  • I have completed the first draft (81,445 words, 276 pages).
  • It is still untitled (but I've narrowed it down to a few I like).
  • It's Teen Fiction
  • It will be a series (I've already started on the second book while I'm still tediously editing and re-editing the first).

When I finish this novel (very soon) - I fully intend to find the most excellent literary agent and will then aggressively pursue getting this novel published.

I'd love if you came along for the ride.
