WIP Wednesday

As the end of each year approaches, I enjoy looking back over the previous twelve months and comparing my goals and resolutions to what I've actually been able to accomplish.

I began 2012 with two books on my schedule and by spring, a third was added. It was the first time in my career that I had to write three books - around 1,000 pages and roughly 300,000 words - in one twelve month period.

And I made it.

I completed Secrets of a Dangerous Woman, the third book in the Black Swamp Mysteries series, in the spring. It was released in September 2012.

I then wrote The Tempest Murders over the summer. This book is being marketed by my agent and I hope to have some good news concerning its publication in 2013.

I just completed the third book, Dylan's Song, the fourth book in the Black Swamp Mysteries series. It is due for release by Drake Valley Press in the spring of 2013 - the official release date is St Patrick's Day, which is appropriate for a book that takes place in Ireland.

I have two books to write in 2013 (so far):

After the Tempest is the sequel to The Tempest Murders. It is due by the summer of 2013.

And The Pendulum Files, the fifth book in the Black Swamp Mysteries series, is due on the editor's desk by December 2013. It will be released in 2014.

You've really had quite a year Trish. Congratulations on completing your goals "plus"! Here's hoping your agent is able to get you hooked into a great publishing contract - you deserve it more than anyone I know. Sounds like some great novels to come too in the new year. Will await them with my usual enthusiastic anticipation my friend.

Thank you so much for dropping by and leaving a comment, Pam! I appreciate you Being such a loyal fan over all these years. I am keeping my fingers crossed that The Tempest Murders will be picked up in the coming weeks. Now I am gearing up to write the next two novels! Have a wonderful holiday week.
