Nerdgasm is off with a beta reader as we speak. I’ll go one more round of developmental fixes, and then from there, I’m going to get it to the editor, formatted for ebook, print, get that cover done for the print copy, and then I get to hit that publish button! WOOT!! Well… for preorder, anyway. :)[Continue Reading]
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.
Yes. I was going to post this yesterday…
Today is… day 23 of NaNoWriMo 2015. And I’ve officially drawn a blank. I putzed with Aeon Timeline to see if a purchase would be worth it. (It TOTALLY is…) I’ve scheduled four blog posts for this week. Well, Topless Tuesday is scheduled and will be on time, Wordplay Wednesday will be as well, and it’s the return of First Lines Friday. I might have slacked off on that one… just a wee bit?
Anyway, I’ve done… no story words today. Not. A. Single. One. I just don’t know what I’m going to write about. I don’t know what Vella and Rafe are up to, and I certainly don’t know how to deal with Hope and Eddie right now either. Or even Lucia and Angelo. Such fine Italian names. *sigh*
Well… there is always sharing my muses with the world, so maybe I’ll do that. Right now. Here’s Rafe and Vella, played (in my mind) by none other than Brant Daugherty and Victoria Beckham. (I mean, I’m pretty sure that’s her anyway.)
So there you have it – all the words I’ve written today. And a couple pictures of hot people.
(Let me just remind you, this was yesterday. And by the end of the day, by the time I finally turned in, I had written about 1,500 words.) Today, on the other hand, I’ve so far written about 1,900 words. And I’m still going strong – finishing scenes I stalled out on, topping off each day so they all read 2,000 or more words.
