Countdown to NaNo — Introduction

Participant-2014-Twitter-ProfileNovember 1st is soon upon us, and it is time for NaNoWriMo. Already been a year… what a year it has been. I published one book, which has great reviews. I have met a great number of people who have given me fantastic support. I rubbed elbow with authors, and I now have a voice within the community. A small one, but it is there.

It was last years NaNo that convinced me to become an author once more. I didn’t just complete it, I annihilated it. 50,000 words in 14 days. Will I do it again? I don’t know. I know I’ll get 50,000 words. Maybe in 40 days, maybe in 10 days.

IWSG — July Optimisim

IWSG badgeSo, quite a bit to talk about in this one. I try to reserve IWSG for the woes in life but too many good things have happened as of late for me to do that. Going forward, I hope the good times continue.

Of course saying that, I’m inviting impending doom. But talking about the impending doom will bring me good fortune. It all works out in the end.

Recent Updates — Research, Vampires, Phoenix Comicon

I want to apologize starting off, as I was suppose to post two posts this week and I will not be doing so. This I don’t count as a post as it is more of an apology and explanation.

Right now, I am working on getting my research done for my next book. I had hoped to be done with the first book of my new series by today and I have barely started it. So I am pushing myself hard to get things done so I can get started. I will say that my delay has proven to be fruitful.

Real quick, my next story takes place during 1300’s Europe and is a Vampire story (I know, ugh, another vampire story). Most of my research is looking at the time period and trying to be as authentic as I can be. I know I can just make stuff up, but I really want to start from a good foundation first.

I wanted to be done and published by the time of Phoenix Comicon (in June) but that won’t be happening. So instead, I will be hosting a contest for my upcoming book. I can’t go into too much details now (as I still need to work it all out) but there will be a prize to have a character named after you in my book series. My series will be a series of short novels, so like 3 short novels will likely equal 1 full novel, and I want to have 5 to 15 short novels in this first series. Stay tune for updates on that.

I also will be posting either a special story of my universe on my blog, or the first chapter. Maybe even both for members of my site, who knows.

I am also doing interviews on my site for writers most likely (open to other kind of interviews). If you care to have an interview, let me know.

I plan to re-release Terran Psychosis with some updates to the language and potentially a new book cover. I also am trying to learn how to do *.epub format (*.mobi is so much easier) so I can release it on Smashbooks. Once that occurs, I can then open my business doing discount ebook formatting.

Lastly, I will be doing a special on the Phoenix Comicon for the month of June. I plan to go 3 days and get as much as I can in the field of writing and my general geekdom.

So I will come back next week and start doing articles like before. Just be patient with me as I try to get my research done and try to get back into the swing of things.

Epilogue & Exposition — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

EWe are reaching the end our first week of the A-to-Z Blog challenge. This brought to you by the letter E. Yeah, I’m sure I’m not the first to come up with that lame joke. Our words for today is Epilogue and Exposition. Two words that many writers should be familiar with, but like many of my posts, I will try to reveal more than you ever wanted to know.

I thank everyone for their support and would love to hear from you on how much you are enjoying this. Please leave your comments below.

Tools of the Trade — Walking Away

tools of the tradeBeen awhile since I’ve done a Tools of the Trade article. This one doesn’t sound like a tool, but it is an attitude of your project. As writers, each of our stories are our children and we do what we must to protect our children. We spend a lot of time writing, and editing, and writing some more. We seek perfection to our stories.

It is cause for celebration for me. I have released my second book, Terran Psychosis. This was actually a story I wrote before my work related injury and had intentions of publishing nearly 2 years ago and of course the accident got in the way.
