Nano Crazy 2012
So, I finished Avarice: Pyrrh Considerable Crimes Division Book 1 and it is currently going through edits. It’ll be up sometime in early November I think.
The good news is that I’m writing again. I still feel weird and a little rusty after the accidental break I took, but so far my first readers are saying Avarice is really good, so at least my feelings aren’t reflecting on the writing quality too much.
So I’m getting ready for NaNoWriMo. I have a couple of novellas to finish up this week so I can get the first Gryphonpike Chronicles omnibus out, but then I’m going to switch to writing a few short novels (pulp length- 35k-45k) for NaNoWriMo and beyond.
And because I love covers and they help me focus on what I’m doing, here’s a preview of what I’ll be working on:
The Dying of the Light: military fantasy about a non-combatant who carries the banner of the king (art by Katerina Romanova).
A Prince Called Courage: fairytale fantasy/romance about a cursed prince, a quest, and making the right decisions (art by Claudia McKinney).
Mayhem: fantasy about a girl living on an archipelago who accidentally releases an evil power into the world and must stop it (art by Tiziano_Baracchi).
So that’s what I’ll be working on during November (along with maybe a couple more, but I don’t have covers for those yet and I might not get to them until December anyway). It works out to about 4,000 words a day or about 3-4 hours of work daily to finish these. As usual for my Nano Crazy, I don’t expect I’ll get everything done, but the nice thing about aiming for lots is that even getting half or more done means getting a lot finished. Anything I get finished will be edited and available to read by the end of the year, so if any of these look cool, make a note. 🙂
