Good News…and Not-So-Good News…

So, the good news is that I am wholly focusing on my last round of edits and rewrites to Rose.  As usual, it’s gone slower than I might like, but I feel like the time and quality have been above par.  I am both happy and unhappy with my progress.  This is due in no small part to the fact that I spent so much time away from it, so I feel like I am coming at it truly fresh…which leads in to the bad news.

Writing a Book is Easy…

No, it really is.  You sit down, you type a bunch of words (or write them on paper, if you prefer the analog method), and you move on, right?  Yeah, maybe.  That works great if you write strictly for recreational purposes and you have no intention of letting anyone else read the drivel you’ve spewed.

  • About the Author

    T.M. Lennon currently lives in North Carolina. His passion for science-fiction and fantasy was influenced by Star Wars in 1977 and The Lord of the Rings novels, which he read at an early age. He created the world of Eörlond in his teens for a fantasy role-playing game, and it has grown ever since.

    The one-time a soldier, systems engineer, and software developer, now adds author to his list of credentials. He continues to work during the day as an information technology consultant, but spends his precious little free time evolving the land of Eörlond and its inhabitants in front of his trusty laptop.
