The Jellybane Chapter 12 Update

I've finally done what I can with Chapter 12 and have sent it off to my editor, Kayla Ware, ruler of chroniclefocuseditorial.com

In Chapter 12, Alice and her friends are tasked with cleansing a  spring of the jellies that have come to inhabit it. In exchange for this service, the pixies of the forest offer them much needed food.

The Chapter 3 Drawing contest will come to a close once Chapter 12 is completely edited, so there is still about a week and a half left in the contest.

Chapter 12 is Done!

Chapter 12 of The Jellybane is done! 
And will now be entering it's editing stage.

 In this chapter, the girls are asked by their hopeful new allies to cleanse a nearby spring of the jellies that have congregated there. Alice and her friends agree to do so in exchange for much needed food, only to find the task a far greater chore than they could have possibly imagined.

The chapter now being edited means the Chapter Art Drawing Contest for Chapter 3 has about 3 weeks or so left in it. So still plenty of time to enter.

Reminder:
As I continue to progress in the completion of my novel rewrite, I'm hosting a contest to make art for each chapter. Winners of the contests receive the prize money ($30) and also have their work displayed in the final novel.

There are now also runner up prizes for 2nd and 3rd place winners amounting to $15 and $5 respectively. All entries will also be proudly displayed in the chapter Art Contest Results videos after each contest via YouTube.

For info on the contests please visit the Contest Page



Here is the arrestingly intense entry of fellow novelist Sara A. Noe (author of A Fallen Hero) for Chapter 2's Drawing Contest. A big thank you to Sara for participating!

1 Week left for Chapter 2 Drawing Contest

Hey guys, I just sent off Chapter 11 to my awesome editor, Kayla Marie Ware, who has recently brought her new site online, check it out at chroniclefocuseditorial.com

This means, there is about 1 week left in Chapter 2's Drawing contest! Still time to submit entries.

What I'm looking for in these contests is for you to read the chapter and draw a scene from that chapter using only black and white.

Chapter 1's winning entry by Connie Walker (ryoki18@yahoo.com) is a perfect example:

Winners will have their entries placed in the final novel heading the chapters they are for with their names given well earned recognition, plus the contest's prize money.

Check out the contest page for more details on entering.

Meanwhile, I'll be beginning Chapter 12 of The Jellybane's rewrite.

Chapter 11 is Written!

In The Jellybane Chapter 11, 
Alice and her friends learn more of the pixies and their desire to see the jelly monsters vanquished. Twinkaleni, feeling the party can use this to improve their chances of survival in this dangerous forest, works to encourage exchanges between the girls and these potential allies.
 
The chapter is written and will be edited by me for the next few days for clean up and then sent over to my editor Kayla Marie Ware for a final go over.

Speaking of which, Kayla's brand new site has just come online at www.chroniclefocuseditorial.com/
where she offers her amazing services for all your editing needs.
She has proven time and time again to be an excellent editor for me and will no doubt prove the same to you.


As for the 2nd Chapter Art Drawing Contest, with the chapter down but in need of editing, there are only about two weeks left in this contest period, so be sure to submit your entries soon!

Chapter 3's contest will be held immediately after the conclusion of the 2nd which means more chances to win prize money and a place in the final novel!

Check out the contest page for information on entering.
