We did some pumpkin carving at the Martuneac household yesterday! The kids picked some classic designs for theirs, a spooky ghost and cat, the wife chose Disney castle, and I made a valiant attempt at the Chicago Bears ‘C’ logo.

Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday, but the kids love it and that makes the related activities fun. Next weekend we’ll be doing trick-or-treating, my favorite part of the holiday. That’s the part when the kids get a bunch of candy and I get to teach them how ‘income taxes’ work!

In writing news, still no bites from any agents or publishers on my Creed series, though I did get one rejection. If I don’t hear anything by December I’m going to plan on self-publishing Mandate From Heaven in February. I heard that a movie based on the Uncharted video games is coming out that month, so it’s my hope that ‘lost treasure’ stories will be in high demand!

And I just passed 26,000 words on the next the book in the series, so that’s coming along nicely. I actually love the villain in this one, Czarina Barinov. She might be my favorite villain that I’ve ever written!

That wraps it up for this week’s update, I’m really excited for you all to read Creed someday soon hopefully!

  1. As you can probably tell from my Twitter feed, I *love* Halloween, and carving pumpkins in particular. Great job on all of them. Inspired by yours, I’m almost tempted to try a Buffalo Bills logo, but naah; it would not be pretty! πŸ˜€ Now I want to see how they look with lights inside!

    And congrats on making progress with “Creed.” I’m eager to meet Czarina! πŸ™‚
