Hi, my name is Abi. At least I think so – I’ve been living in my fiction world for the past couple of weeks so I’m a little dazed by real people, sun and this thing called cleaning my room.

It began when I asked a friend to design a new cover for my first published novel, One Summer’s Desire that I wrote as a 16-year-old. She was doing such an amazing job, that I thought, hey why not go through the book and give it a little maintenance?

It turned into the birth of the second edition of One Summer's Desire.

Now, when word leaked out about this, those who have read the first copy said things like: 

"But I like it the way it is!"

"Please tell me you kept the part about the bear. What about the canoe scene?"

"Why don't you just write a sequel?"  

Those are all great comments and great questions, but when an author reads her document with a blinking curser in front of her, you end up with new characters, new scenes and a new vision. That's just the way it is. It was seriously a lot of fun.

And yes, rest assured, the bear and the canoes are both still at the heart of Hadassah's summer adventure. The original storyline is still there, and I think that if you liked it before, you might just like it a little bit better.

One Summer’s Desire is now in the hands of my proofreaders/editors and I am about to settle into the task of formatting. It’s more daunting than writing, but my imagination will be much less involved and good thing because, guys, there's a lovely springtime going on out there. I might go on a hike, throw a party, do my nails. The possibilities are endless.

So there’s that.

What else is happening with A Time 2 Write?

Kindle Edition

Is Kindle your thing? Good news! There is now a Kindle edition of Charlotte’s Hope.

Book Signing 

Mark your calendars! If you live in the Newton, Kansas area and are interested in getting your book signed by all three authors of Charlotte's Hope, please stop by our book signing between 1-3 PM at the Faith & Life Christian Bookstore on Saturday, June 27th, 2015.

Idaho Chois Convention 

Lord willing, the new One Summer’s Desire will be making its debut at the Idaho homeschool convention June 5-6. I'd love to have you stop by my table! A Time 2 Write will be offering an exclusive discount for those who sign up for the writing course at the convention.

Due to several travel and ministry opportunities this summer, I will not be coaching in the months of June and July, but sign up now to secure a spot to start in August or September. Spaces are limited.

Special thanks to Andrea Prigge for the use of her watercolor art.
