My goal is to write short blog posts each week about being an author on this website, ChadRobertParker.com, about my company and writing services at Writcreate.com, and about random short stories (or memories) as I contribute to the contest held on Anecdoting.com. First, however, I need to update all three websites. But stay tuned. The fun of it for me is in the writing because content is king after all. It’s coming soon!
Here I would like to give readers a “behind the scenes” look at my work, and more specifically, at this time, how Sterling Bridge came to be. I think it is fitting because Sterling Bridge is a film novel and what better way to start off than with a theme for my new author website that represents my first publication. That’s right, a film novel, meaning there is a screenplay already written for this book. That is not to say, however, that I am set on following the script to the “T.” Sterling Bridge—the novel–is just getting into the editing phase, itself, after all.
One thing I am going to like about writing this blog is that it will be more free flowing. Forgive me if you expected an author to be more nit-picky about edits. But I am getting ahead of myself. This post is just to introduce you to the idea that my blog will largely focus on the long journey it has been to bring my first published work to the shelves (15 years in the making). And yes, I will like to keep you apprised of the latest happenings, as well, as we continue the journey toward November 10th.
There is much to do ahead of a book launch party. I hope you can come along for the ride and enjoy this journey with me. Having worked in a library the past 7 years I can truly appreciate how much book lovers are involved in bringing a great story to the shelves. With your interest and support I hope I will be able author many more great books to come!
