Visit Elferterre

I am happy to announce that last Friday, I finished the first draft of Out of Time, Book Three in my Great Library Series. What a happy, joyful feeling! There are months of hard work ahead as I work at getting the book in shape, but it really is a thrill to have that first draft done.

Here is the promo poster that Clif put together for Out of Time. This illustration won’t be the cover of the book—the talented James of Bookfly Designs will be creating the cover just as he did for the first two: Maya and the Book of Everything and Library Lost.Β  But several blogging friends expressed interest in Elferterre, and this picture by E. Adveno Brooke captures how I envision the magical dimension where Maya and her friends go to find something that will help free the Great Library from the iron grip of the tyrant Cinnial.

Now onward, ho to getting Out of Time in shape for its 2020 publication.

  1. This morning, I was bemoaning the fact of how long it takes me to put out a decent sized post so I can’t imagine completing a book let alone three. I hope the editing goes well, and the latest one is as well received as the first two. Congratulations!

  2. Congratulations Laurie, it’s great to get the first draft finished! I love the fairy-like atmosphere in your poster – Elferterre looks like a place of light and true wisdom πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ‘ xxx

  3. Congrats on finishing the first draft, Laurie! You’ve worked hard. What will you do to treat yourself? Cake sounds good, don’t you think? πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks, Eliza! And for your support over the years. As for cake…you hit the nail on the head. That’s exactly how we celebrated. Along with Chinese food at a local restaurant.

  4. Hats off to you. I have a few pages of a novel that I started in 1968 and wisely stopped writing also in 1968. It is hard work being a writer.

  5. Congratulations Laurie, this is such an achievement…I love the promo poster Clif has put out too, very tempting! Good luck with the editing.

  6. I remember the feeling I used to get when finishing an assignment for my degree so I can imagine, if I multiply that by a few hundred , how you must feel πŸ˜‰
    Love the poster!
