Last week, I posted a Snippet from Dawngard. This week, I shall regale you with a passage from ‘Hopeless Romantic’, an upcoming short story to be published in the Bowman’s Inn Winter volume.[Continue Reading]
It’s that time again!
Saturday 11/21: Rafe read the legend at least a dozen times.
Sunday 11/22: “You have no idea what you do to me,” he growled.
Monday 11/23: Bobby sat on the picnic table, feet pulled up, arms wrapped around his knees as he watched the gulls gliding and dancing on the wind, darting down and soaring back up, fighting over scraps earlier picnickers had left behind.
Tuesday 11/24: “Well,” Hope said, shaking Mandy’s hand. “Thank you for this opportunity.”
Wednesday 11/25: Hope stared into Eddie’s eyes from across the table.
Thursday 11/26: “You–I–you’re… Look at me, I’m a complete mess around you. You’re–I don’t–hot.”
Friday 11/27: “Oh, I–” Hope wanted to decline, but Eddie was already leading her back to the office and setting her purse under the desk.
Well… technically, it’s not over yet.. BUT I WON!!! Wooooot!! Last night (Saturday the 28th) I broke through (officially) 50,000 words with 50,008. That’s where I validated. I’m currently sitting closer to 51,000 right now. Maybe I’ve got more, I can’t remember off the top of my head. And I’m on my tablet, so I’m not closing this just to find out.
I still have a lot of writing to do on Dawngard – or whatever title it’s going by today. And I’m still trying to get a handle on what the heck the story is about, but it’s coming together.
I’ve figured out bits of the legend of the Black Wolf. There will be a sequel, about the white wolf, and eventually, one about the red wolf.
It should be interesting. I have a general arc for the series – werewolves in the Black Wolf as the main foe, though vampires do make an appearance. There will be some carry-over characters from this to the next.
And in the White Wolf (I’m not mentioning who that is – I want it to be a surprise) will be up mostly against vampires – don’t worry, mine don’t sparkle – and a few werewolves.
The third… well… that’s still undetermined – at least to you, the fans.
I promise, I do know what’s approximately going to happen, I just don’t know any of the details. And I don’t know who the Red Wolf is yet. That may just be a surprise for me when I get started in writing that.
I do have a few ideas for the plot, I’m just not spilling the beans right now. Partly because I need to keep some surprises for you, and partly because I just don’t have all the answers yet myself. Just a few ideas.
I just wish they wouldn’t keep piling up on me so much that I need more than one book to tell the freaking story.
