NaNoWriMo 2013

ImageMorning, gals and guys!

I signed up for NaNoWriMo last night. (Buddy me here — let’s race to 50k together!) Contrary to what my profile says, it’s actually not my first year. I’ve been NaNoing with various success since approximately ’05. But it’s my first year as a published writer, and I felt a new screen name was in order.

Anyhoo, I also cobbled together a rough, rough, rough (rough!) summary of my NaNo book. Introducing Arrest Me Not:

In an alternate universe, where gender is less important than how dominant a person is, Sheriff Grant O’Shea is a man without a soul mate. As a dom, his lifespan would be considerably greater with a sub to temper his power. But Grant’s never met his match, and slowly but surely, his power is burning him out.

When a grizzly murder strikes the small city of Tamarack, Grant leads the investigation. But he’s not one-hundred percent after being shot six months, and he’ll need all the dominant strength and willpower he can muster: The only witness — and prime suspect — is none other than his mate.

Poor Grant.

I don’t think this’ll hit 50k, but I have other WIP’s I can finish once I’m done with Arrest. I’m going to cross that finish line one way or another! Come join me on NaNo. It’s going to be a fab time. 😀

Update and writing goals

Image

Hey all!

As it’s my Friday and I have nothing but 8 hours of toil then the glorious stretch of the weekend in front of me, I thought it was time to update my writing goals for the next few months.

On the “Coming Soon” front, Second Skin is about to go through line edits. It should be available through Musa Publishing in mid-December. So if you see a wacky body-switch plot being spammed around the internet in the upcoming months, that’s probably me.

This month I hope to finish the first rough (rough rough) draft of Draconem, which is a dragon shifter story. Did I mention it’ll be a rough draft? Depending how sexy it ends up, I may sub to Loose Id. So far it’s coming out more “sweet and plotty” than “scorching” (despite the fact there are dragons who breathe fire — where did I go wrong?) so I may try my hand at Dreamspinner first. We’ll see. )

I’m debating whether I should occasionally post bits of my upcoming WiP’s. Some people find them interesting, other people find them pretentious. What do you say, dear readers?
