Still revising and trying to write new manuscripts. Trying to get FLIES IN THE OUTFIELD ready to send to Stephen Fraser. Hoping to hear from Ripple Grove Press in early 2017.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Well, Trump has won the Presidency. Some happy and some sad.

Revising short fiction and chapter book, FLIES IN THE OUTFIELD, as well as YA novel SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD.

Lily’s Lagniappe: LSU TIGERS play Alabama tonight. It is painstakingly sad that I have to listen to Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson on CBS while my Tigers play.

Revising chapter book and YA novel, hoping to send to Stephen Fraser. I hope he likes it well enough to try to sell it for me.

Thinking about starting two new manuscripts during this month. But need to finish revisions first. Want to get chapter book to Stephen Fraser first, then send out YA novel to agents.

Halloween in my neighborhood is sad. I had two trick-a-treaters. Two! Good thing I didn’t buy candy. Revising a chapter book and YA novels at the same time. Jumping into different ages is difficult at times.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Dad is coming in this weekend. He is staying until the 16th. Then Brooks and I are heading to the Great Wolf Lodge.

Really working on making more internal dialogue with Travis in FLIES IN THE OUTFIELD. Revising YA novel at the same time.

Lily’s Lagniappe: LSU TIGERS playing undefeated Alabama this weekend. Hoping Tigers can pull off a Hail Mary win!!
