What story I’m working on: …what a different a week makes. That Steampunk with a Twist story ended up being the best choice to work on, because I’m already at 12k, which means I’m almost halfway through! The characters are lively, the setting strong and unique, and the story is resonating with me in a marvelous way. I also reached 4k with my YA fantasy project currently written as Musketeer Pirate in my Word doc.
What I’m editing/marketing: I did a broad sweep through for Captivating Melody, but now is time for some nitty gritty and the detailed reworking to rewrite and better this manuscript. Even though it had its flaws, I can say without fail, I still love the story. If you haven’t picked up your copy yet, Waking for Winter came out last week!

Line of the week:
The change of pace didn’t bode well for Ellie or his clockwork maid, but Silas had long learned to school his features. He flashed her a smile. “Scared of a little trot across town, Theo? I can understand if it might be too harrowing for a lady like yourself.”
She shot him an acidic glare, the worry stealing away from her features to be replaced by her usual annoyance. Good. He’d rather distract her for the time being.
“If anyone might have difficulty trekking about town, it’d be you in those fashionable shoes, Silas,” Theo shot back. “Did you have to break the backs of five servants to afford those things?”
“Your jealousy is duly noted,” he said, rising to his feet and brushing off his trousers at the knees. He leaned forward, extending a hand. “Now let’s get a move on with hunting down our quarry.”
