What story I’m currently working on:
Well now, I honestly didn’t think I’d be able to keep up that breakneck pace with the Wanderer’s story, but as I’m typing this, I’m closing in on 23k. I’ve very rarely had a story pour out of me this quickly, but apparently it’s been pent up and needing to be told for some time now. This story has been tugging at my heart in all of the best ways too, the lead characters so vivid and vibrant it hurts. Cole is proud, and responsible, and constantly smoothing over the fights between his siblings, the weary sort of soul who carries too much. And Bree is fire and a fight, she’s the crack of a whip, with the sting that lingers.
What I’m editing/marketing: To quote Shrek the Musical: the waiting, the waiting, the waaaaaaaiting! While I’m testing my patience with all this waiting, I’m charging ahead with the writing of the things. I’ll be getting edits in soon as well, so I have plenty to work on. I got the cover for A Reflection of Ice, so that was excitement, and I’m launching into marketing prep for that eventual release as well as Gaslight and Graves.
Teaser of the week:
Line of the week:
Riley snorted, letting out another slow stream of smoke. “Mrs. Wormwood’s voice is currently the soundtrack of my nightmares. Her nasal drone haunts me.”
“Got to remix that shit,” Cole said stubbing the toe of his boot against the gray paver in front of him. “Throw some electronic backbeats behind it, add in cat wails for good measure, and you’ve got a hit on your hands.”
Riley let out a sharp laugh, one of those surprised, real ones. “You’re missing your true calling. ‘World War Mew’ would be a way more entertaining way to spend history class.”
