CHANGE OF NAME/PLOT FOR SECOND TATTONVILLE NOVEL

INUKSUKERY was not working out as a good plot for the second TATTONVILLE novel. I have started a new story entitled TATTONVILLE: GHOSTS OF POWWOW. Alan has to deal with the ghost of his grandmother, Linda tries to help a young Native girl being terrorized by a creature, and Barry's dance troup must compete in Powwow with a skeletal ghost troup who have risen from their graves to defend their unbroken title. Or something like that. I will see where the characters take me in this new Native supernatural novel.

INUKSHUKS HAVE WON OUT WITH TATTONVILLE

Yes, the next book in the TATTONVILLE series will have many Inukshuks mysteriously appearing all over town and on the highway. Will Barry and Linda have to use their developing Shamanic powers to solve the mystery? Or will a nervous but brave Alan save the day? Who knows.

"Junior Constable Barry Mannette, a well-built, long-haired Native from the Anawatna Reserve with slight Shamanic healing abilities, is content at his job with the Tattonville Township Police. He is married to Senior Constable Linda Mcenna, a short but muscular motorcycle cop, and they are supervised by their boss, a large and friendly Jamaican man, Sergeant Alan Parks
But when RCMP Staff Inspector Rene Alou and CSIS office head Agent Andrew Reed head up the secret construction of a training compound in their small central Ontario town, the officers not only have to contend with the possible privacy issues the compound would bring, but also with the murderous rage of a long dead Shaman that the construction has unleashed."

While marketing my first novel, TATTONVILLE, involving Native supernatural elements, I am also playing around with plots for the next book in the series. Have ideas on a skeletal tribe of Pow Wow Dancers, mysterious Inukshuks that appear all over town, or a creature or two from Native folklore. I really don't which plot will be chosen but my characters do like to send me in directions that are not part of my intentions.  We will just have to see which way we go and what adventures Barry, Linda, and Alan encounter!

Been doing my marketing efforts for TATTONVILLE published by Dark Moon Press, and still have lots more to do. Ordered business cards to leave all around town where I've been for random people to find. Been posting on Facebook and LinkedIn. Putting together a news release for local and Native newspapers. And will be contacting several radio stations that may be interested in talking about the book. Busy, busy, busy. But the more people who hear about it, the more sales there will be and the possibility of a next TATTONVILLE novel looms on the horizon. Fingers crossed.

Crowdfund my fantasy novel DRAGONSTOEN on Pentian.com

Been working a little on the outline for the second book in the proposed Dragonstoen series. I now have about a third of the second novel actually spread out into a story. As an author, it's amazing how you set out to write the story in the way you want it to occur, or what the story is that is flowing about in your brain, but find it changes direction as it fleshes out. One very minor character in the first novel is now a cohesive necessity that actually binds the story together in all five parts and is the catalyst to the most important event in the entire story line. I never would have thought that a character that I created just to move the story along from one point to another without writing pages of action would become so important. But that's fiction writing. Anything can happen.

I encourage you to support Dragonstoen on www.Pentian.com and pledge what you can to help get it off the ground. Who knows? Your support could net you a tidy little royalty in the years to come.
