Apron Strings transformed into a trilogy. I had so much fun writing Apron Strings and such favorable feedback about the characters that I decided that Ethel et al. had more than enough to say to write a trilogy.
In Done Growed Up the second in the series, the Mackey family works through their past and the echoes of that past in their present lives. Set in the still unsettled 1960’s, Done Growed Up gives the reader a view of a family in transition. Ginny and Joe confront their demons by reaching out for help from loving caring people while the children find love and compassion in their own way. You can be sure Ethel has a lot to say. Done Growed Up is a novel written from the heart to the heart. My second novel is going through its final edit before going through the business of finding an agent and a publisher.
I published Apron Strings through Createspace. This time, I thought I would try something different to see how that works. The downside to that is it will take awhile before Done Growed Up is available to buy. If you want to speed the process along, post a comment and let me know that you did so I can show the powers that be these books have a following. If you email me at [email protected] and put posted on the subject line, I’ll send you a the first chapter of Done Growed Up.
I am happy to say that If It Ain’t One Thing… the third in the series is moving right along. With life events like weddings, deaths, and reconciliations; this completes the tale of a family that is learning to live after enduring generations of pain and suffering. My goal is to finish the writing process by May so the wait for If It Ain’t One Thing…should not be as long as it was for Done Growed Up.
