Weekly Word Count #170

Word Count: 5006

What story I’m currently working on:

Hit 25k with Hypnotizing Beat, so by next week I’ll be at 30k and right on track! It’s still a slower pace than the Tribal Spirits books which seem to just fly out of me, but I’m having a lot of fun playing in this sandbox again. Plus, SHARKS. (You’ll know when you read it!) I’m going to either try to power out Hypnotizing Beat in October, or finish it in the beginning of November and then squeeze a novella out. Or write the next book in the Tribal Spirits series, Forged Futures. It’s a dice roll at this point.

What I’m editing/marketing:

Well, I got all of my beta reader feedback in on Forged Contracts, and it’s not nearly the endeavor I thought it was going to be, so I’m plowing through content edits and line edits. My hope is to have it turned into my publisher by the end of September or early October! And I’ve gotten some solid feedback from one of my beta readers for The Lies We Weave, so I’m going to be diving into more content edits. Thankfully no more full-blown rewrites though. Of Tinkers and Technomancers also recently got signed with Totally Bound Publishing, so I’m thrilled to dive into that new series as well.

Teaser of the week:

Line of the week:

However, she wasn’t afraid.

Danger didn’t terrify her, not like confinement.

Danica would fight her way through a shark tank, bloody her hands in any manner to keep from getting locked away, whether it was a figurative chain or a real one. Trevor’s hand settled on her shoulder again. She glanced back to him at last. She’d expected nerves from the man, but all she found was a steady gaze back.

Trevor arched a brow and glanced to her heels. “I’m pretty sure the sharks are going to eat you first if you’re swimming with those on.”

Danica snorted. “Nice try, he-who-wears-stompers. I’ll sprinkle shark bait on you and kick you in first. Give myself a swimming head start.”


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.
