Seanachaí’s News

On the last Sunday of each month, I compile “Seanachaí’s News,” a status report that assesses my work during the current month and also formulates my plans for the upcoming months. It will also give you a peek at my works in progress.

My Work During the Current Month

  1. I've been busy promoting my new novel, Haunted Voices from My Past: True Narratives of an Ohio Family.  Check out my "Collecting Acorns" blog where I discuss the meaning behind "haunted voices."
  2. Looking for a new recipe?  For a taste of homegrown vegetables from the haunted garden that is featured in my new book, try my spooky spaghetti squash.
  3. "My Name is Dorothy" is a short, inspirational piece about my childhood and my positive outlook on life.
  4. If you like poetry, you won't want to miss my collection of inspiring haiku that hints of the gentle "Murmuring that Creeps into the Life of a Wandering Soul...".

My Plans for the Upcoming Months

  1. Right now I'm assisting my friend and colleague, E. Michaels, with a brand new title, Turtles and Shells and Things.  This title will be available for the holiday season.  Check Sunflower Footsteps' website for its release.
  2. I'm excited about this new book because it's the first title in The Feel Good Series.  This series is dedicated to encourage self-confidence in younger readers.  Each title has a story to read and color, activities to complete, and games to play.
  3. The next title up for publication will be E. Michael's next story for The Feel Good Series, Little Duck Gets Ready for School.
  4. OK, I've been stalling long enough.  Before I get the bombardment of questions about what my plans are, I'll try to be concrete.  All right, at the moment I have NO projects of my own on my desk.  However, that does NOT mean I'm not formulating plans for a new book.  I'm playing with a new way of storytelling, and I might already have a title for the new project (if I can grab a few minutes to check the calendar for accuracy).


THANK YOU, everyone, for ordering my books this holiday season!  Seriously, it's the readers who make my work possible.  Without you, I would have to put away the books and get a "real" job.  Thanks for not letting that happen!
