When I decided to publish my first book in 2015, I didn’t know what would happen. Continue reading “Three Books, One Year”
Excerpt from Revealed, Farseen Chronicles Book 4.
Dave kept his breath shallow. Some mighty defender of truth he was. His father’s most trusted soldiers in the not quite defunct AIB had chased him into the alley. His dad wasn’t the most Internet savvy person on the planet but he managed to find the blog. And the email he composed. Considering his high IQ, he shouldn’t have left the body of the email in an unencrypted document. Continue reading “Dave’s Rescue”
The leaves are changing and the air is cooler. Yep, it’s NaNoWriMo time. Another hectic November writing 50,000 words toward my next novel. It worked well for me last year and in early 2017, I will be publishing the finished novel (Cetus Landing, Book 1 in the Finding Earth series) of the book I drafted in the 2015 NaNoWriMo.
The premiss is that you write every day starting November 1st with the goal of having 50K words written in your novel by November 30th, that translates to 1,667 words a day. Note that 50K will equate to half a novel first draft for my Science Fiction and Fantasy worlds, but it’s great fun.
Many NaNoWriMo-ites speak of the virtues of caffeine and junk food while writing. Not so for me. I eat normal, health meals and get my seven hours of sleep. I schedule time (5 AM – 8 AM) every morning to write and will write at other times if possible. Last year, I had a day job and family to schedule writing time around. This year, I don’t have a day job to worry about, but I’ll stick to my writing time and still have time for family. 5 AM is when I write every day and it’s my most productive time.
During NaNoWriMo 2016, I will focus on the second book in my Finding Earth series, Pyxis. I will be creating another new world so I’ve got to get busy.
If you want to focus on a writing project during the month of November, join me at NaNoWriMo.
I just published my fourth novel, an achievement that is equal parts joy and doubt. Joy that I’ve grown as a writer with each book and made some wonderful friends along the way. Doubt that I’m not marketing the books very hard.
The third installment of the Farseen Chronicles is available in digital form at Amazon.com. The paperback version is being processed now.
Tempe and friends search for the Shadowed throughout the Farseen and the Seen, in an effort to eliminate the Shadowed threat. The threat is much closer to home than they think.
Ryan, Star, and Sage continue to master their gifts and a fae relative brings news that will forever change the Farseen.
I enjoyed the journey this book took me on. I hope you do as well.
