Currently Doing: Packing, Outlines, Ideas, and Paperbacks

Life constantly makes twists and turns. Some journeys are tough, while others are easy. Sometimes we reach our intended destination, and other times we end up at an uncharted destination.

I've been told many times that when one door closes, another one opens. Some doors open to small changes, and others to life-altering changes.

My first week of summer break has been spent packing. I'm moving this week. Mr. C has a new job, so that means we are moving out of the staff housing that we had due to his old job. So in a couple of days, it will be goodbye to San Marcos and hello to New Braunfels. I'm looking at this move as a new beginning. New home. New neighborhood. New office for me to set up. 

New beginnings are a good thing!

A few weeks ago, I started writing the first chapter of Oracle of Atlantis, book 5 in the Children of Atlantis series. I wasn't quite happy with the outline, so I stopped writing and re-outlined the entire book. I love the way the story has turned out! As soon as the move is over, I will dive into writing the story.

Several of my students have asked me about how many books I plan to write in this series. (For those of you who don't know, I teach history and speech at a local junior high school.) I have ideas for about five more books, counting Oracle of Atlantis. I've started working on the outline for book 6, Deceptions of Atlantis. As I write Oracle, I'll jot down notes for the other stories.

Last September, I released Plague of Ares in ebook only. After the move, I will format a paperback version and release it. 

I've been tossing some ideas around and would like your opinion. 
I actually have a YouTube channel, but have not done anything with it. I'm thinking about filming some vlogs on writing and other stuff. Would you be interested? What kind of content would you be interested in? 
I'm also thinking about starting a Street Team. Is this something you would be interested in participating?

Have a great day!
