Let’s talk Stone . . . and his intensity – a character study

I did a post a while back on the moment in the books that we’re introduced to Stone. I’m endlessly fascinated with Stone. There’s always more to find out. The way he looks, the way he acts, the way he thinks.

Free snippet Friday – UES

Working on Under Empty Stars today so I’m going to be sharing a snippet from the book. I am going through my deep edit round, which puts me far ahead of schedule, so I’m hoping nothing comes up to slow me down. Should be fairly straight-forward from here.

Free Friday Snippet from Under Empty Stars

The book I’m currently editing is Under Empty Stars. And today’s snippet will come from that book. Then there was her. The one who wouldn’t let him. Kept touching him, feeding him. Heat built inside him and he flipped the small switch upward on the console. He’d avoid focusing on her. Needed to anyway. Distraction. Nothing forContinue reading “Free Friday Snippet from Under Empty Stars”

The moment we’re introduced to Stone – free Friday snippet

Been a few weeks since I’ve posted a free Friday snippet. Apologies. Just a quiet time for me. Today, our snippet comes from the novel, Daughter of the Red Planet. This is the first time we’re introduced to Stone.  

Where will it end

 I’m at 61 thousand + words and I feel like there is much more to tell. I’m very curious if I’ll be able to complete this book, or it’ll keep going. I think I can, but it may end up being a lot longer than normal. I could well go to the 100K mark, justContinue reading “Where will it end”

Just words

  Late so just word count Word count I started Friday with: 57,681 Word count I ended Monday with: 59,509 Total for the day: 1,828 words     Question of the Day: Describe your perfect house. Use images if you like.   *the image used as a thumbnail represents a scene written today.

Eet’s meh 36th birthday

I’m so wiped. Had a tummy ache today this morning, which is always exhausting. On top of that, I’ve been trying to build a tall arbor for a climbing rose, not a wide one, so I’ve been digging posts a lot. Well, it’s one post, but I’ve had to dig multiple holes for it, haha. At first my idea was to use the post as a placement for the trellis, but then I realized that the end of the porch there is at a sort of angle. So when I make it straight out from the porch, it looked wonky.

So much going on today

Too much going on. Just word count.   Word count I started Friday with: 53,266 Word count I ended Monday with: 55,761 Total for the day: 2,495 words     Question of the Day: What are your favorite toppings for a sandwich?   *the image used as a thumbnail represents a scene written today.

Over halfway with AS

I am now over halfway through editing Ancient Scars.

I worked in the yard this morning so I already feel wiped out and it’s only 1:30 pm. I’ve been cleaning up a corner where old lumber had gathered. The wood made a cave that the rats enjoyed bedding up in.

Love it

Got a full hour of writing in for a change, so my word count is incredibly nice. I’m liking it. Only just now got the dark wifi back on, so I’m only making this a word count, and the Question of the Day.   Word count I started Friday with: 48,882 Word count I ended Monday with: 51,189 TotalContinue reading “Love it”

Good amount of words

New planet, new things to explore. Well the planet isn’t new to us, since it’s Earth as we know it (though in the future), but my character Ellie has never been to Earth. She was born on Eli’ane, which is much like Mars to us in many ways.

Gush fest

Didn’t post this on Friday. I was tired, and had been printing out Under Empty Stars (166 pages!) as well as getting my newsletter ready, so I was a bit tired. Today was an emotional day of writing. Had to keep taking a deep breath so I could focus and not start crying along with Ellie, haha. I’llContinue reading “Gush fest”

Halfway through UES so thoughts are on next to write

Hard to get writing in this morning. The dogs kept barking because my mother got up. Lucy sleeps with her and my mom has trained Lucy that when they get up, Lucy should bark down the hall to get Kona up to play with. I have to be the bad guy and correct the behavior. The Dark MoonContinue reading “Halfway through UES so thoughts are on next to write”

When you force yourself to quit

Had to pull myself away today. The story was going so well, and things were just working out perfectly. The story was flowing well, the characters were feeding me . . . and I didn’t want to stop! Love those days.   In other news, Daughter of the Red Planet released today, I just released the paperbackContinue reading “When you force yourself to quit”
