Teresa M Shafer - For books that kindle thought and ignite the imagination!
My Blog


It is mid November and I am up to about 27,000 words, halfway there to my 50,000 word goal. I had a bit of a rough patch where I couldnt decide if my hero needed a new friend or a new challenge, so I gave her both. Now she has a fuller life and more excitement than she can handle. I let her go on a week long binge and now she's paying the piper. She's a tough cookie and will manage to get out of it without too many bruises, she is after all the hero, but she's not going to be in a better place. In fact her danger factor will increase daily.
Other news, Football is going well. Our team is coming together nicely. We have tons of talent and lots of enthusiasm. I can't wait to see them on the field! This team, the Reno Reapers has so many advantages over the last team that I was involved with I just cant believe how lucky I am to have been offered a postion as Team Manager.
The weather has turned cool here, it's my favorite time of year. The leaves are turning brown and gold, we have a few red ones but this is Nevada not Maine. Our landscape is only dotted with hardwoods that change color. The majority of the plantlife in the desert simply  goes into winter hibernation like most of the animals. Nutrients are stored and burroughs are dug and life simply hunkers down for the cold winter. Luckily here in Reno we are high enough in the mountains to generally get a decent amount of snow to play in on the valley floor. In the mountains we generally get a farily decent snow pack. I'm considering learning how to snow board sometime in the next couple of years. It's an expensive sport but it looks fun. Perhaps when spring comes I can pick up some nice used equipment that some rich person bought and used once. It is extrememly common and the best way to get some really quality stuff for about 20% of retail. I missed out last year cuz I had no idea what I was looking for and didnt take the time to research it until it was too late.
Anyway, I have to get back to my book. I'm calling it "A Box for a Kingdom" It's better than "Cheoba's quest" but if someone has a cool name that would like to donate... let me know.
Have a great week!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

I'm not sure that what you are suggesting is covered in the layout. If I'm reading you right, you want more pictures. I actually have at least one image on every page and I have two pages of nothing but pictures. But, I understand what you are saying and will endeavor to incorporate more pictures to tell the story. I'm not sure what I can do for the books other than the covers but be assured that your suggestion did not fall on deaf ears. It was my plan to work on my site this week, so now I have something new to look at. Thank you!
