The bad news is … it needs a lot more editing. As it always is, writing is not just writing some words down to tell a story, it is really writing and re-writing and re-writing some more. Its sort of like having to do the same job over and over. Theoretically it gets better the more you work at it. That’s my theory anyway. So the plan is to have the book done and published before the end of the year. That will allow me to enter it into some contests for books published this year.
To all of you out there who are almost finished with your next book, you know the anxiety I am feeling. Will it be good? Will anyone be interested in it? Will it sell ?
This book is a fictional story about the dangers and problems two children from Honduras encounter when they try to get to America to reunite with their mother. Traveling across Mexico on the death train, La Bestia, it is a story of courage and faith. It’s based on the stories of all the migrant children who have left their homes to follow their dreams in America in the past few years. It doesn’t matter what your political stance on migrants is, you will still be touched by this story.
I will be keeping you updated on the final progress. By the way, the cover is being designed by my wonderful graphic artist, Morpheus Blak.
