I have seriously padded my thumb so I can type and not feel like I am being jabbed each time I hit the space bar. Managed to do a chapter on Traveler last night and another so far today. Yes the chapters are short, only a few pages but I do this when I change viewpoint from heroes to villain. Only makes sense to me.
A new character (or two) decided to pop their head into the story. Since I am one of those weird writers who don’t use outlines and cue cards and all that stuff to do my stories it is expected. You need your muse to toss in these voices to move the story in the direction it is supposed to go.
The villain is turning into one hell of a nasty little creature. Any creature who wants to commit genocide is going to be of course but you don’t expect someone who was once a beautiful Elf woman to turn into one do you? I am having fun writing the arrogance of the two who are battling over our main character. Parents…sometimes you just don’t need them right?
Looks like this will be lighter in tone than my last few. I don’t want to become known for just dark fantasy right? I am hoping I can get through this whole book with something that would be good for a younger audience. Say that big youth market? Would be nice. The love story is soft and tentative so far. I won’t take it too adult, after all I have a few others in the wings for adult fantasy romance type things.
Edana is strong willed for sure. But a woman who grew up not knowing who she is and even what she is, who is the best in a field generally male dominated, she is going to be strong willed. Now i just need to come up with the Elder Gods. Yes I said Elder gods. Creatures who took a hand in events that they never do…or rarely do. Should be fun.
Still crossing everything I have that the review of Fall Into Nightmares will be a good one from PRG. They have liked books I have read and reviewed, some more than I have and others less. Sometimes I am surprised at the things they give 5 stars to. I don’t expect something that good but I would gladly take it.
Endings is getting a small handful of reviews, which is good since Revenge is out now. And now I am going to hold off on working on the third book in that trilogy till I see some good sales on both books. Endings is neck and neck with Ice right now. While neither is a best seller by any stretch of the imagination they are doing good for me.
Speaking of Ice. I am thinking that soon I should put together those collections. March should hold a number of releases of my work. While I may just be taking up virtual space someone will find me someday and rad everything. That is my hope after all.
