Weekly Word Count #109

Word Count: 6500

What story I’m working on: Umm, I might be biting off more than I can chew, ha! So, with my secret Musketeers Pirate project, I hit 3k, Forged Decisions I slowed down to 15k, and I began my Steampunk with a Twist story, making it to 1500 words. I don’t normally balance three, but the Musketeers Pirate one is purely for fun, I’m a bit stalled on Forged Decisions until I find out the fate of the beginning of the series, and the Steampunk for a Twist one has a definite deadline, making it the easiest and clearest one to plunge into.

What I’m editing/marketing: Since Captivating Melody went through the rejection wringer, in the interim I re-read it and critiqued, so now I’m going through the edits and trying to prettify this old manuscript and inject some new life into it. I think there’s a lot of good I can do with it. Also, WAKING FOR WINTER is out!

Teaser of the week:

_Liv applied her cherry red lipstick in her rearview mirror with the precision of experience, her brand of war paint to give her confidence today._

Line of the week:

Droplets of salt water hit Fiona’s face as she propped herself up on the prow of the ship to catch the first glimpse of the land up ahead. Nine years had passed since she last set foot on this land—nine years since she’d been sold away and banished from this place. However, this time, she wasn’t a kid anymore. She’d trained, fought, and killed out on the seas, and this time, the entire country of Caer Donis better shake in their boots, because Fiona Blackwater had returned.

I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
