Writing and reading books about the craft of writing. Wanting to try fairy tale retelling or nonfiction chapter books. In the meantime, revising SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD and writing new chapters for HE’S NOT A HE, HE’S A SHE.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Getting restless for college football. GEAUX TIGERS!!!

Revising SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD. Writing a new chapter book, HE’S NOT A HE, HE’S A SHE. Writing new chapters for the new chapter book.

Revising synopsis for SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD. Writing on HE’S NOT A HE, HE’S A SHE. Working hard to get second book finished then begin the revision process. It will need lots of work to get it ready.

Went Harrahs Cherokee for about four hours of fun. Was really nice to be there without breathing smoke. There is a large non-smoking section inside the casino.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Heading to Gatlinburg yesterday I was on Interstate 40. A small mini cooper passed me and showed me her LSU Fleur-de-Lis as we are traveling down the road. You meet TIGERS everywhere. #FOREVERLSU

Sent FLIES IN THE OUTFIELD to an editor just over a week ago. I’m embarrassed to admit I’ve checked my email each day as if the editor would respond this quick. Working on the second chapter book in the mean time.

Lily’s Lagniappe: There are less than 100 days until college football season begins. GEAUX TIGERS!!!


June 29, 2018

Working on another baseball book HE’S NOT A HE, HE’S A SHE. I have about three chapters and I need about 7 or eight.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Well about 86 days until college football starts. We play Miami in the Dallas Cowboy’s stadium in the college football kickoff. GEAUX TIIGERS!!!!


June 27, 2018

Still revising SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD. Fixing the synopsis of SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD and waiting to hear from E. Law. I’m not sure how long to wait and see from her. She’s only had my manuscript a week and hopefully she will like enough to publish it. Working on the HE’S NOT A HE, HE’S A SHE.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Disappointed that Arkansas lost the the College World Series. Hate that Oregon State did.


June 25, 2018

Sent the materials to the editor and she acknowledged that she received it. Here’s hoping to a good end. She is looking for chapter books and this could easily be a series.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Tonight the championship game of the college world series begins. Go Hogs!!!


June 23, 2018

Working hard on the manuscript of FLIES IN THE OUTFIELD. I needed to amp up the humor as well as the angst of being placed into the starting line-up. Working on query and synopsis also.

Lily’s Lagniappe: The college world series will be without one SEC school but Arkansas is in the final versus Oregon State.
