Ghosts of Manuscripts Past, Present and Future

Time for another Query Tracker Blog Chain entry.  The topic this time was started by Abi.  The post immediately preceding mine was Jessica Verday’s, whose book, The Hollow, comes out in October, 2009.  Kate will follow my post. 


The topic is:

– What writing related things have you done in the past?
– What WIPs are you working on now?
– Do you have anything brewing for the future?
– Are you setting any writing goals or resolutions for 2009?

The Ghosts of Manuscripts Past were primarily young adult projects.  In the past two years, I’ve completed three YA projects.  I’ve also written a couple of children’s early picture books.  

The Ghosts of Manuscripts present are more varied. I’m working on a co-authored time-travel romance and two paranormal romances.  I have a children’s non-fiction working as well.  One of my favorite current endeavors is contributing to the QueryTracker Blog.  


Though slightly scary, my Ghosts of Manuscripts Future aren’t nearly as terrifying as the specter that haunted Scrooge. I expect to complete the three romances and begin a new YA that has been rumbling around in my head. 

My resolution for 2009 (in addition to helping Tiny Tim) is in the blog post immediately below this one.  I only have one resolution this year:  To use my time more wisely.   Gotta go write!  

Wishing everyone a productive and blessed 2009.
