Weekly Word Count #120

Word Count: 12,010

What story I’m currently working on: My GOD, I’m getting so into this new YA Fantasy Heist story, that I’ve been calling Musketeer Pirates. I started batting around some title ideas, so I’ll probably be rolling with one by next week. Last week I was talking big about how I was gonna take my tiiiime, and how I would take forever on this book. But I started really gelling with the story and progression, and honestly, my slapdash pantsing style took over. So I’m already up to 22k in the Musketeer Pirates story!

What I’m editing/marketing: Forged Alliances came out this week! Get your copy now!!! I got A Reflection of Ice back from my beta reader, so now I’m doing the final edits before submitting it in to publishers!!! I’m currently waiting on my line edits for Captured Memories, but on the plus I’ve got this gorgeous new cover for it! Next on the release agenda after that will be Of Tinkers and Technomancers with After Glows Publishing! As for the next Tribal Spirits book, Forged Decisions is currently out with beta readers!!!

Teaser of the week:

_Liv applied her cherry red lipstick in her rearview mirror with the precision of experience, her brand of war paint to give her confidence today._

Line of the week:

Weavers be damned, that baccarai would be the death of her. Katerina couldn’t argue with the statement because she simply didn’t want to. As much as she was proud of her post as a Kingsguard, and as much as she wanted to do her Uncle proud and have this Summit go off without a hitch, if she turned Fiona in on her suspicions now, she’d live with that regret for the rest of her life. No matter how much time had passed and no matter how many friendships she’d forged, no one came close to what she’d shared with Fiona Blackwater.

Even if it cost her dearly, Katerina had to give her the chance.
