This post may not be as powerful or as moving as the Marvin Gaye hit by the same title, but yet the label still applies. I haven’t posted here in a while, but there’s a lot going on in my creative world, so I wanted to fill you in about What’s Going On.
First off, I haven’t discussed it much on my author sites, but the production of Thornetta: The Musical, which I co-wrote with Bridget Callaghan, is coming together beautifully. We have nine shows scheduled in September of this year at the InsideOut Gallery in Traverse City, MI. Whether you want to help out (by sponsoring, volunteering, or donating,) buy tickets, audition, or just want to keep informed about our progress, please visit: www.Thornetta.com
I can’t go into too much detail yet, but I’m working with others on potential projects related to the Holocaust and Flight from Fear. There are still survivors who have held off on sharing their stories, and it’s extremely important to honor them and to record their stories. Lest we forget.
I am nearly done with the final revision for my South Florida-based coming-of-age novel, Such a Dreamer. It’s been a long time coming, and I’m excited about getting the manuscript into the hands of my editor.
With these and other projects (creative, domestic, and otherwise,) I haven’t had much time in recent months for any new writing. Which is why the posts for my serial crime noir saga, The Awakening of Kenny Black, has stalled. With that said, my schedule has become a bit more lax lately, so I’ve started on chapter 6 of Episode Two. I should have it posted by the weekend, and plan to continue posting new chapters regularly. If you’re new to the saga, and are interested, you can acquire Episode One on Kindle.
