It's Official"Whirlwind is HERE

I rarely post here twice in one day, but I'm letting all of the Smashwords reader know that Whirlwind is published and is available for download on that site.

I had a major WOW moment when I added up the numbers and saw that Where are our Children finished a little bit over 300,00 words.

I wouldn't have thought that I had that many words in me in a lifetime not just a project like this. I won't go over some of the same material that I covered in an earlier post.

Just know how much this serial and this story meant to me and I hope that it has at least touched each of you readers in a small way.

Anyway, it's there on Smashwords for the taking. I will upload to other sites tonight and tomorrow.

I will be back here tomorrow as well to announce new projects on my horizon.

No rules. Just Write.

Whirlwind is done.


I'm not ashamed to say that I had tears in my eyes as I typed the final pages, paragraphs, sentences and word of Whirlwind. It is done. A project that I started over seven years ago is finished at last. As so many of you already know, it wasn't supposed to end this way. Where are our Children started out as a single novel. The first draft of which ended at 144,00 words.

I walked away from it for a while. It sat on my Kindle for 6 years. I found the courage to dig it up and start a second draft that ended up in what many of you will have in your hands likely by day's end. It's not perfect. It's not nearly perfect, but it is who I am as a writer and storyteller today. Right Now. I want to improve in both avenues. I will improve. But this was a huge stepping stone for productivity and confidence that I was able to overcome.

I'm so glad for all of you who've lived this journey with me. There were points along the way, especially after Past Prologue and then again after Zero Hour that I didn't believe that I would finish this.  

But after a final copyedit and formatting I will be uploading the final chapter of this last episode as time permits.

We did it, My Readers,

We DID it.

No Rules Just Write.
