Learning the online education scene in the last couple of weeks, when educators are trying to swim out of the tidal wave of information and expectations, delayed this news. I have typed “The End” on the fourth book in the Green Man Series titled A New Leaf. Now comes the real work of adding and subtracting commas like a crazed mathematician, wrestling with words, phrases, and sentences as if they are wild alligators, and polishing it until it shines bright and new. The ending surprised me and happened sooner in the timeline of the characters than expected. There will certainly be at least two, or possibly three, in the continuing timeline of the Green Man series, as well as a prequel.
As I slowly lift my head above water with online education, I am returning, slowly, to the business of editing. Tides of Blue characters and plots have become real and want to tell their stories. Here’s hoping for a wealth of creativity along with the new growth of this burgeoning spring.
