Finally, it's done! I managed to publish the Kindle edition on the actual date I had planned for the release (April 30), and it should be available over at Smashwords (and then at Barnes & Noble, iBooks, etc.) shortly! If anyone is interested in a free digital copy of Scavengers to review, please contact me via email … Continue reading Scavengers is out! And Camp Nanowrimo win!
As April winds to an end, I find myself in the midst of two things: finishing up my story for Camp Nanowrimo, and preparing Scavengers for release later this week! Currently I'm at around 18,500 words in "The Madman," which will be a second Wolf Point prequel novella. I only need to write about 500 … Continue reading a week of writing and revising
This year Camp Nanowrimo is already making me do great things. I finished the rough draft of Scavengers (YAY! You can even see that it's moved from my Works in Progress to Novels!) because I needed it to be finished before I started camp. I had a whole 2 days to spare, and I decided to use them … Continue reading hi-ho it’s off to camp i go
I'm nearing the end of Camp Nanowrimo and last night I ended up writing the most in one day that I have all month (a whopping 1,300 words), and once again my main character ended up giving himself stitches (this also happens in Hitchhikers). For some reason I feel the need to break my characters … Continue reading I am not very nice to my characters
After a bit of a rough couple of weeks, I am finally back on track to complete 20,000 words by the end of the month. I had figured 20K would be so easy, not even half of a regular Nanowrimo, but surprisingly it hasn't been the free ride I was expecting. A bit part of … Continue reading Camp Nano & other progress
I finally did it. I finally completed the first draft of Dreamwalkers!! It's a pretty big accomplishment for me. Not only is it the first novel I've completed outside of Nanowrimo since Hitchhikers (3 years ago!) but it is also the first sequel I've ever completed. You'll find the Dreamwalkers page now under Novels instead … Continue reading a big sigh of relief!
The time of Camp Nanowrimo is upon us again. I wasn't planning on attending, but then again, my 2014 goal of writing 500 words a day hasn't exactly panned out, and of course now that I'm nearing completion on Dreamwalkers, my mind is having slutty new ideas. Such as a Wolf Point prequel novella called … Continue reading to camp or not to camp?
Since the end of Camp Nanowrimo - or, let's face it, midway through Camp Nanowrimo - I haven't been doing a whole lot of writing. I did get a good 28,000+ words written on Scavengers, but I got sidetracked when I realized that my map for Scavengers was way off from my map for Hitchhikers. … Continue reading what i’ve been up to
Dear Ryan, The events of last night caught me by surprise. I was on a roll, writing far more than the expected 1,667 daily word count. I was feeling positive that I might be able to catch up (I'm still 7,000 words behind). And there it was: the halfway mark, right within my reach - … Continue reading a letter to the character I just killed off
(and also a reminder: my two novels, Bethany Caleb and The Art Kids, are both free on Amazon all weekend!) After the July 4th holiday kicked my ass, word-count-wise, I'm sorta back on track with Camp Nanowrimo. At least, I wrote almost twice the daily recommended word count on Sunday, and have been able to … Continue reading catching up
