Before I vanish in the writing hole for a month, I thought I'd leave a treat for any Halloween visitors: Forest of Glass is once again available!
So National Novel Writing Month is starting tomorrow at midnight. Pretty much the moment I get back from my Halloween party, I'll be firing up Scrivener and getting to work on this bad boy:
When he starts craving more, it seems an impossible complication, but even the reserved Umber can't deny Nick's talent—and need—for following his orders. But Umber's shadowy past holds secrets that could undo both their fragile new relationship, and any hope Nick has of a normal life.
As it is NaNoWriMo, some of this stuff might end up changing! But I am going into it with a fairly good idea of Nick and Umber as people, and the kind of trouble they might run into. As the month goes on, I'll be posting a few first-drafty excerpts to enjoy...or just to get a look in to my writing process. And, as it is NaNoWriMo, you'll probably also get a fair amount of griping!
Happy Halloween, and see you on the flipside. 🎃
Well, I finally bit the bullet and got a nice new website set up - just in time for NaNoWriMo!
I've participated in National Novel Writing Month before, but in the last few years, life always managed to get in the way a bit, and I haven't gotten past the finish line in a while. This year, I'm hoping it'll be different. I have a new, fantastic day job that gives me more headspace to write, and an interesting idea that I hope will carry me through. For the first time since I can remember, it's an idea that falls outside my familiar speculative fiction wheelhouse! It's exciting and a bit daunting to write in (some version of) the "real world" rather than the far-flung worlds of The Adorned or A Stranger In Skoria, worlds that seem somehow more familiar to me as a writer than my own hometown.
