The WIPpet Wednesday blog hop gives authors a chance to share snippets from their current Works In Progress. Thanks to K. L. Schwengel for hosting!
Happy Wednesday, WIPpeters!
My wrists continue to flare up at the most inconvenient times, so my WIPpeting may continue to be sporadic for the time being. Kinda stinks (for me at least), but at least you know I'm with you in spirit. Or something like that.
Ok, the WIP. This comes from book 2 in My Solar-Powered History series for kids. The title of the book is What Hurricane?
We made our way up a ladder to the deck. We squinted in the sun and saw that the ship was still anchored next to land. Some men wen were carrying cargo on board and others were climbing up the ropes and poles that shot up toward the bright sky. “What ship is this?” I asked my brothers. I tried to remember what Dad told us before he programmed the machine. A supply ship to Jamestown. Admiral Somers, my great-great-great-grandpa, or something like that. And what had Dad said about a big storm?
As you can figure, the Otis boys have some excitement coming their way. Stay tuned...
And now that the WIP is out of the way (that was 8 sentences from page 8, by the way, it being the last Wednesday in August and all), how about something really fun? This is a video fellow WIPpeter Regi McClain helped me make for my Beloved Daughter audiobook pre-order campaign. I'm including the version with bloopers - this one's a lot more fun, in my opinion.
Speaking of Audiobooks: If you want to help me raise the funds I still need to pay the audiobook narrator, I'd love to invite you to my kickstarter page.
Random Fact: I was at a youth retreat once growing up where a flash flood left thousands of us stranded in a college basketball stadium all night with no electricity.
