Nano update + My upcoming novel

For those of you who don’t know, I decided to participate in Nanowrimo this year. And I have made some headway but I’m a little bit behind on my word count.

But so long as I’m working at it, that’s what matters. Maybe I’ll get caught back up. Maybe not. But that doesn’t matter so long as I’m writing, right?

I also did a thing today! I finally made my first fiction book available for preorder on amazon!

And just like I promised, here’s the first look at my book cover.

You can reserve your copy here.

Mallory Delour would do anything for her little sister Stephanie. But with a genetic disease eating away at her sister’s body Mallory is left with only two options.
She could go into crippling medical debt to delay the inevitable or become an alien’s bride with the assurance that Stephanie would receive life-altering gene therapy.
For Mallory the choice was easy….
But for Alek’dar it wasn’t.
When the humans approached him, he’d been wary. But, by taking them up on their offer he could kill two birds with one stone—a bride for him and an alliance with the humans.
Happiness hadn’t been factored into their decision but that doesn’t necessarily mean they can’t find it.
Unless someone or something stands in their way.

Camp Nanowrimo: Day 16

So, I got a little off track here the last few days. I was completely unable to do much of anything, but with a change of venue, I was able to get back into the flow of things. In a way, I feel guilty because I hadn’t been meeting my daily goals, but I have to learn to let go and forgive myself. It’s better to just take a few days off for a breather rather than a couple of years like I’ve done before.

Well, we’ve officially passed the midway point of camp. How is everyone else coming along?

Camp Nanowrimo: Day 9

So, I’m little bit at a standstill at the moment. I’ve run into some issues with my fantasy and the plot that have me completely side-eyeing it, so I’m going to put it onto the back burner at the moment and I’ve started working on a collaboration piece with Tesia. She and I are writing a series of novellas together, each writing about two characters.

My two are Zola and Rhea. The more she was writing for hers, the more inspired I became for mine, so I’m going to take a break from The Princess and the Dragon. I might work on it a bit, because the plotting is what’s throwing me off so at this time it’s secondary to my other work.

But I’m not going to give up on it. I’m so tired of not finishing things. I did get about 8500 words done so far for it, so there is that.
