What story I’m working on: Night Awakens, and I started a new one…only a couple pages in, but I’m super pumped about it.

What I’m editing/marketing: What now? Scrying for Summer is SENT for submission! Which leaves my full attention on getting Airship shipshape!

Line of the week:

(For a special treat, this is the opening line of my new story)

What story I’m working on: Night Awakens–paranormal romance for everyone!

What I’m editing/marketing: Editing Scrying for Summer primarily since I’m reaching the end zone on that one. Will switch full focus back to A Tale of Two Airships.

Line of the week:

What story I’m working on: Night Awakens, and I’m finally reaching the crescendo! The big bad fight scene, and where the threads of the mystery all tie together!

What I’m editing/marketing: Editing away at Scrying for Summer and A Tale of Two Airships. They’ll both be done before I know it!

Line of the week:

“Yeah it is.” This was familiar territory for me, the heartbreak and defeats. “Every day you get up out of bed, feet on the floor and you push yourself up. You bear the past, and you’ll carry that hurt with you for the rest of your life. But with every dawn, and every day you keep moving, eventually you start to live again. Call it survival instinct or what you like, but we’ve all got our scars to bear.”
