Weekly Word Count #119

Word Count: 10,191

What story I’m currently working on: I keep my promises! Forged Decisions is complete!! I started really pounding out the wordage on that one, and it’s already out with beta readers now! So after that crazy haul, I slowed down for a little and spent time getting back into the Musketeer Pirate story, and I finally hit 10k! Baby steps on that one–it’s going to have so much complex plotting that it’s difficult to pin down directions.

What I’m editing/marketing: Forged Alliances is releasing next Tuesday! Continuing the awesome news front, I just signed a contract for Of Tinkers and Technomancers with After Glows Publishing! I’m finished the rewrite of A Reflection of Ice and have it out with beta readers, so once I get critiques back, I’ll be doing the final two edits on this and then submit it by the end of the month! Also on the editing front, my content edits for Captured Memories are complete! Onto lines!

Teaser of the week:

Liv was willing to go to war beside him, to descend into the trenches and fight with him against those demons, and hell on earth if that didn_t mean everything.

Line of the week:

“And the largest crew of Dims to sail the seas,” Lorne called from his seat, brandishing his pistol. Fiona’s groan slipped from her throat unbidden. The moment the slur left Lorne’s lips, silence smeared through this tavern like fresh paint. Fiona resisted the urge to strangle her friend as every eye in the bar turned to them. With the Summit for human rights on the horizon in this magic-hating kingdom, only the boldest or stupidest adepts would call attention to themselves.

Lorne had always been both.


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.
