Ladies, I apologize for my long absence from you. Many of you wondered if I had driven off into the sunset and forgotten my pen and pad. The answer is no. The gift that keeps giving, wounds from Iraq (OIF), have revisited our little military family. Adam is currently preparing for another series of serious surgeries to repair his spine from a bomb blast a few years ago. So, as I have spent many hours being the dutiful wife (which I consider an honor), I have been typing away and counting my blessings in the early and late hours of the day. Now, as we finalize the surgeries, I’m back in the swing of things. Adam and I have come to grips with what has to be done and I can focus on writing again. It truly is a way for me to vent my frustrations and pull myself out of my daily reality (which isn’t bad at all but it is reality).
So, what’s been happening with Anatoly, Nicola and Dmitry, you might ask. SO MUCH. The keyboard has been burning up with new ideas. I’ve been reading all of your wonderful comments and plan to reply if I can. If I don’t reply however to old comments, rest assured that I plan to reply to the new ones that you post. Also, I’m writing The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov. These will be short stories over the next year to give us all the background on our favorite character and his life pre-Royal. I don’t know if I’ll put these on Amazon, but I’ll be selling them as PDFs here on my site for $3. Please let me know if you think that is a reasonable rate for short stories.
One other little gem that I’ve written is The Ugly Girlfriend. It’s a short story about love in Phoenix between Mitchell and LaToya. I hope that you all enjoy it. This week, we also have some radio shows coming up. Send me your emails at Latrivia@LatriviaNelson.com and I’ll be sure to read them. You’ll also notice that The Medlov Series will have its own talk show too to answer the many questions and talk about the series. To learn more, go to http://www.blogtalkradio.com/latrivianelson for times, call in number and other info.
Gabe’s storyline is coming together. In the next few entries, we’ll talk about rivaling family members and how it can impact the entire family. As you know, Anatoly and Gabe are not the best of friends. Their differences will be what rocks this book. There will also be some other special treats. One question that has been asked a hundred time is, will Renee find out about Royal? The answer is yes. I can tell you that their reunion will be explosive. Well, that’s it for tonight but I look forward to you letting me know your thoughts about the radio show, the short stories, The Ugly Girlfriend and the small fee for good literature.
XoXo and all that jazz,
