Anora paperback got held up

The Anora paperback got held up in review by CreateSpace. If you follow me on Facebook, you’ll have seen me post about that on Friday. Not a big deal. CreateSpace needed me to verify that I was the author behind the book. So on Friday, I spent the afternoon getting screenshots of the files inContinue reading “Anora paperback got held up”

Anora – Chapter One

The sun drifted lazily through the boughs of the trees. Feeling no need to push on such a relaxing day, the rays shimmered and filtered amongst the feathery tendrils. A mixture of evergreens, oak, fir, pine, cedar, and even a few old redwoods. None of them competing for space, all of them working harmoniously together to create a fluid canopy of golden green.

Finished Anora this morning

Very pleased that I finished Anora. Although it was left open for a series, I don’t think it will be one. I’m going to have to fix everything and remove the series name. I’ll keep the cover and the series name just in case, but I have no plans to expand. The dogs were actingContinue reading “Finished Anora this morning”

Hit my goal with room to spare.

Totally hit my goal. That’s without any editing shortcuts either. I did a thorough edit. I sent Daughter of the Red Planet to Creech Enterprises with 45 minutes to spare. I’m exhausted so this will be a quick note mostly. I got my newsletter out, and will be taking the weekend off. Also had a great dayContinue reading “Hit my goal with room to spare.”

Progress – and reached my goal!

Today I didn’t get as many words as I would’ve liked. I’m still happy – anything is something! – about it though. I retraced my steps, tried to work out a few things, and then ended up deleting paragraphs so I could just rewrite them instead of trying to work them out. Made it easier, butContinue reading “Progress – and reached my goal!”

Gonna make it quick

Making good progress with the novel. Can’t help but think it’s because my fingers were starting to hurt from the other keyboard. I don’t have gigantic hands so for me trying to type on the bigger keyboards, it stresses my fingers. I’m getting an adapter for the older keyboard to use it. The keys aren’t as high,Continue reading “Gonna make it quick”

Just under what I like, but I’ll take it

Always a bit sluggish on a Monday. I was reading the last part I wrote last Friday, and I couldn’t grasp where to go. Then I realized it was because I needed to switch the POV. Another character has been working his way into the scene here and there (he’d actually been in the very firstContinue reading “Just under what I like, but I’ll take it”

Starting to get answers

We’re finally getting answers. And as typical, the way the answers are being given in the story, isn’t the way I had it planned in my head. Or not planned, but maybe I should say, how I expected it to go. I expected the information to come in a much different way, different person as well.Continue reading “Starting to get answers”

Tired, but that’s a good thing

Good numbers today. I was able to start on time (almost) so that helped me loads. I got a good advancement in my Daughter of the Red Planet editing too. I have to edit at least ten pages every day to hit my end of the month goal. I have one month of give in that timeContinue reading “Tired, but that’s a good thing”

The plot thickens

Had some very interesting ideas hit me for the Guardian of Life series last night. I’m excited to implement it. I swear I’d seen something similar in a movie, but can’t find anything so maybe it was an art drawing. The closest I found to my idea was the “dinobots” in the latest Transformers movie. LoveContinue reading “The plot thickens”

Dang, the girl has spunk.

Well she handled herself quite nicely! I like this girl’s spunk. She’s got some fire. I didn’t think she’d have such fierceness in her, but I may have to readjust my thoughts on Anora. Yesterday she got herself in a predicament that I was curious how she’d handle. Well, I have discovered that she doesn’t backContinue reading “Dang, the girl has spunk.”

Will they get together after all?

When I first began with Anora I thought that her and Storm (male lead criminal) would be at odds, wouldn’t have any sort of love connection. The other day (during the weekend?) I ended up having this idea occur to me about that. The idea came to mind that maybe after all, there may end up beingContinue reading “Will they get together after all?”

Feel like a chicken running around with her head cut off

The past two days, I hadn’t written much because on Wednesday, I got a notice from Amazon in the morning. They wanted me to verify I was the author behind Dark Illusions: The Beginning. I had five days or they’d close my account. Not just that book. Everything. Now, since I am the author, obviously that’sContinue reading “Feel like a chicken running around with her head cut off”
