I have several creative projects ongoing at the moment, and the real challenge has been to divide my time between editing, painting, design, and website maintenance. I use my downtime at work to edit my novel, and am at the half-way point at page 205. The final illustration painting for the novel, which will be used in a later promotion, has been fully sketched out and is awaiting painting. Meanwhile, I’ve begun working on three new painted furniture projects. These have been primed, and the designs for them are in the process of being transferred to the table surface for painting. Of these 3 separate endeavors, the illustration will be the easiest, as I have to do now is paint it. Editing requires not only reading and re-writing, but formatting the finished result into both e-book and printed formats, and uploading them to their respective sites. Despite all this, I am shooting to complete all of them by the end of August, so stay tuned!
First, an apology to anyone who downloaded a sample of my recent novel, ‘Highway Hypnosis’. It appears the manuscript was NOT the final edited copy. I have been working to correct this, and the new version will be up soon. I’ll announce when the corrected version is available here on my blog. I’m not sure if the full edited version got lost, was over-written on my hard drive, or something else, but even though I did spot the error almost immediately, the finished version is apparently lost, and I had to edit the manuscript again. The finished version will be worth the download.
Second, I am currently working on the print version of ‘Highway Hypnosis’ as well, and it will be available through Amazon within the next few weeks. More details will be forthcoming when it is completed.
Third, I am also working on illustrations for the novel, which will be available to those who purchase either version of the book. I’ll post more details when they are available.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Spring.

I’m busy working on illustration #3 for my upcoming novel, Highway Hypnosis. I’ll have a color preview up in a few days, but here is a preview, based on the sketch I made for the project.
