Weekly Word Count #100

Word Count: 8,065

What story I’m working on: Hit 11k in my Cupid’s Cafe story and I’m pushing through some really, really dark scenes. This romance is going to be a rough ride, but my lord, Liv’s character is just leaping off the page. She’s so vibrant and clear.

What I’m editing/marketing: Just got the first beta reader response on Future King which is enough of a motivator to throw myself into the deep end a little deeper. When this story is done, my lord, it’s going to shine. Also got the first round of edits done on Waking for Winter, so now I’m just waiting on round two! Plus, An Airship Named Desire AND A Tale of Two Airships are on sale for 99 cents this week only!

Teaser of the week:

Line of the week:

The years melted away as they kissed, each clash of their lips like he breathed life into her once more, like her hopes hadn’t shattered on the rocks years ago. Like she was still sixteen and could almost reach that sky full of stars.

Weekly Word Count #97

Word Count: 2,584

What story I’m working on: So, I’m a lying liar of lyingness. I did not make it to my projected 65k in Future King, instead only reaching 59, almost 60k. But guys, I had REASONS. Anyway, progress is plodding along with the story, and if I don’t finish it in April, I’ll be done it for sure in May.

What I’m editing/marketing: The reason I didn’t get far in writing Future King is because I finished editing Forged Alliances. Went on some crazy binge edits sessions since I’m on vaca for the rest of the week and won’t be updating this like normal on Thursday. Instead, you get the abbreviated version, heh.

Teaser of the week:

_She couldn_t help but admire the arch of his nose and how long his blond-red lashes were as he slept. This morning, under the sun_s dappled rays, he appeared so innocent. A smile cu

Line of the week:

If my Pendragon ancestor had made this hunt any more complicated, I was about to resurrect him from the grave just to murder him in the most colorful way imaginable.

Weekly Word Count #91

Word Count: 10,234

What story I’m working on: Weeeeeell, I definitely kicked some ass this week in the wording department. Got all the way up to 45k in Forged Alliances, which means I’m tumbling downhill to the end fast. (About 15k projected left!) And while my pace slowed down with Future King a wee bit, I still rounded the week off at 29k, so forward progress for the win!

What I’m editing/marketing: I’m about halfway through the final edit of The Iron Legacy, which means I need to start writing and polishing a query. Still waiting to here on Waking for Winter, and I also recently started submitting Captivating Melody to publishers, so fingers crossed.

Line of the week:

His lips brushed over hers, nothing like the fiery explosions that had erupted between them before. This gentle scrape of a kiss shocked her with adrenaline, coaxing the deep, burning core of her to the surface. The sun glowed along her skin, the warmth and light dizzying when combined with the sensations of his fingers tangled through her hair and his lips on hers. She melted into the kiss, embracing the heady swirl of euphoria that emerged as they continued this tentative exploration.
