Weekly Word Count #165

Word Count: 8,500

What story I’m currently working on:

Forged Contracts is MOVING along! I might be a smidge behind because there was a lot going on last week and will be a lot going on this week, but I’m still pushing forward with it. Last week I thought that this book would be 60k, but since I’m currently at 55k and there’s a significant amount of stuff that still needs to happen, I’m thinking it’s going to be closer to 65k, which is great. The book has a lot going on, esp emotional stuff to unpack, so I think it’s good for it to have more room to breathe.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Currently, I’m still slugging away at Musketeer Pirates. I will finish that book before the end of the year, even if it kills me. It just might. The Airship Also Rises comes out TOMORROW, which marks the end of my Take to the Skies series. I’m thrilled, but also sad. It’s a bittersweet thing, since An Airship Named Desire was the first book ever published for me. Right now though, the entire series is available for under 5 bucks, so yay!

Teaser of the week:

“Rare stories traveled of those who rose too high, the ships who sailed like Icarus towards the sun.And like him, they crashed and burned for their arrogance.”(1)

Line of the week:

A knock sounded on the door.

“Who the hell is knocking on my door this time of day?” Jer muttered, running a hand through his curls.

Raven snorted. “You mean lunchtime? Because I’m pretty sure it’s lunch time. Might want to throw a shirt on, stud.” Her fingers trailed down his chest before she snapped them away and headed for the door.

Jer couldn’t help the grin that rose to his lips as he stalked over to his bedroom and snagged a wrinkled shirt from the floor.

Author:

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.
