Paddy Plays in Dead Mule Swamp - Chapter 28

cover for Paddy Plays in Dead Mule Swamp cover design by Farah Evers
I'm trying really hard to stay focused with the hope of finishing the first draft of Paddy Plays in Dead Mule Swamp in the next couple of weeks. Then it will go to some beta-readers, and come back to me for revisions.

I'm also hoping to be gone hiking for part of May, so I want this to all be set in motion before I leave. If the feedback is in when I return from my hike I'll be able to do the editing, and formatting and have this book ready for a June 1 release.

This seems feasible, if I keep writing, so I hope you'll excuse me now!

Sorry... I think we are too far along to be giving excerpts any more. If you are just finding this journal, go back a few posts to find samples from most of the chapters.

You can buy book 1, News from Dead Mule Swamp, for only 99¢ at Smashwords, or Amazon
