National Novel Writing Month

NaNo in the Bag-o.

I figured I’d swoop in and give a final NaNoWriMo update. Well, I won. *tosses confetti* I finished sometime last week after having to go back and pad back-story into the first four chapters. Right now it’s off to a beta reader as I work on edits for Saint and Scholar. Since CE was a Read more of this post »



This Tuesday’s Tune (11/20)

If there was a machine that wrote Southern-themed smut, its name would be Holley. NaNoWriMo has me ca-RANKIN’. Because I’m feeling pretty wild and ferocious right now, Gloriana’s “Wild at Heart” is in my ears right now. That song also reminds me of a couple of characters I’m torturing right now. As of right now Read more of this post »



This Tuesday’s Tune

AAR’s Fast & Slow has been inspiring my muse a lot lately. There’s just something about that lyric: “You and I could really be something.” That’s the hero of my contemporary western to a tee. He’s ready, but is she? Damn, that song is just straight-up sexy. Anyway, since I’m here I’ll do a little Read more of this post »



A little NaNoWriMo check-in

God, I feel awful. I’ve got a chronic untreatable condition that makes life suck for me pretty often, so right now I have enough painkillers in my system to make my face numb (*adds in a whisper: “and they’re not working!*). I’ve spent most of today face-down on my bed while my 2-year-old used my Read more of this post »



NaNoWriMo Day 1, Check-in

I won’t be checking in every day, but since today is the official start of National Novel Writing Month, I figured I’d give my first day totals. Now, I’m working on two projects simultaneously. The official one is the Saint and Scholar spin-off. I ended today with 3,050 words on that title (and that’s the Read more of this post »



‘Cause I’m a masochist.

Starting Thursday, I’m going to be working on two novel-length works of fiction simultaneously. One will be the NaNoWriMo novel I previously alluded to: I’m still on track for that because I don’t want it to have a release date too far removed from its prequel. The second piece was a plot that came to Read more of this post »



I lied.

I said I wasn’t going to write anything else until NaNoWriMo, but there are 17 days left in this month. I can’t sit around twiddling my thumbs waiting for it to start! I had a project planned for September. That was the reboot of my spicy romance Sold As Is. I started the month with Read more of this post »



I’m NaNoWriMoing

That’s TOTALLY a legitimate verb, so don’t even quibble. Since I haven’t posted anything fresh here in a bit, I figured I’d let you in the loop on what I’m up to. Well, simple answer: not a damn thing. I’m doing diddly-squat until 11/1. I finished the project I was working on and sent it Read more of this post »
