Lost Story & NaNoWriMo

question-mark-godOkay… I have searched my Dropbox, every memory stick, and even my external hard drive… and I seem to have lost the first 10K of Experimentals 3: Messages From The Dead. that I wrote for NaNoWriMo back in 2015… so when I start NaNoWriMo this year I’ll have to start from the beginning… On a good note, I did find in my cleaning up, my hand written synopsis for Messages From The Dead… I just don’t know how someone who is as anal retentive as I am about keeping track of shit could lose a story.

Last night I did take the time to take a couple of hours to skim through both #1: Blessed With A Curse, & #2: Running Into Zero Tolerance, and wrote down all the character names getting ready for the big write in November… when I’ll be writing 3 & 4: Movements In The Dark back to back. To get both done, I need to write 2,667 words per day for November.

As you can see, I’ve made it to 5K in The Diamond Rose 2: So Pretty On The Outside… I won’t be writing today as I have a family BBQ to attend today… it’s going to be fun. The story so far is heading where I thought it might. Though, it’s not exactly about who I thought it would be the main characters. At first, I thought it wold be about Tori & Darkan/Goliath… turns out I was wrong. It’s two years later, and it’s now about Wynn & Teagan… But I’m still hoping you will enjoy the read.

I’m at a standstill on The Lines Of Marsden 4: The Trail of Red Roses... but only until my glasses come back. Because, I know once I start back on it, I won’t want to stop, and I can’t do that with fuzzy lenses.

I’ll also be starting soon on Wardens Of The Guild 3: Heart Strings… but again I’m just waiting on the glasses. I’ll have to go and do the whole write down all the character names for this one too. I’m really bad at forgetting names.

Still no news on Moon Runners 2: I Won’t Let You Go… but hopefully I will hear from Fireborn Publishing soon.

Moon Runners 2

10247310_1569603066657954_1667610901529016488_nI Won’t Let You Go… I have pulled apart and reassembled (well, I’m still trying to do that bit). because I had this awesome idea how to make the story better. I’m not sure how well that’s working out for me as yet, but it has given me the working base for book three. well, I think it has, because we all know I have a tendency to change my mind at least a hundred times while I write any story. I hope to have this particular story finished by the end of the weekend. That’s if nothing crops up between now and then to stop me from completing my mission.

I’m still not sure who the next book is about as yet I guess we’ll all find out when I actually start writing the damn thing. But my next for Fireborn will either be book 2 in The Diamond Rose, or book two in The Freedomers.

Fireborn Plan

10259753_695003427211884_6309451945217256490_nThere are so many stories where I need to figure out where I’m heading. Okay, I should clarify somewhat. I know where I’m heading I have to work out how to get to the end result—the path I should take with the least resistance. Sometimes my stories like to walk in circles for a while before they say okay enough piss-arsing around, and let’s get on with the damn story. But, I know I’ll get there in the end. Especially, if I have all of you out there kicking my arse with encouragement.

What’s Going On #3

10259753_695003427211884_6309451945217256490_nI’m lucky to have such great publishers who accept the often crazy-arsed paths my mind take while writing.

Hidden Hearts: There are only two more books to come in this series #3 is a friend of the families’s story, &#4 is Macen’s story. I’mm looking forward to writing these two, but will have to wait until they come on the roster. I wish I could write them all at the same time, but I’m limiting myself to 3 books at a time.

Moon Runners: This has been a series that always seemed to get pushed to the back-burner, but not anymore. I’m determined to let these characters reach the light of day. # 3 Marcus & Kaleb carries on from the first where our pack is protecting those who need it against an enemy they can’t quite figure out who is coming after them. The Moon Runner Pack has to change with all that’s heading their way.

The Diamond Rose: I’m still struggling with this one. I know as soon as I get my head around the probably non-existent (all except to me) it will start to flow quickly. I’m also still deciding just who’s stories to tell as there are so many characters I could go with. I’m also figuring out if there are other worlds out their besides the one discovered in #1.

The Freedomers: If the truth be told, I’m kind of freaking out over this one because I’ve never written MF before and I so don’t want to suck at it, and I have to figure out how to write the MM & MF as a cohesive whole back story, but make it so if you don’t like MF you can just read the other four stories and still know what’s going on… Though for the life of me I don’t understand why you wouldn’t want to read the whole series.

Belated Happy New Year

b-rtI have had a busy and somewhat frustrating start to 2017. I’m glad the new year is giving me a fresh start. I have determined what I can realistically work on writing wise this year… = 6K 5 days a week… I need the other 2 days for edits and running errands. Any-hoo this is what I’m going to be working on (written in no particular order).

To start off with… Today My blog does not want me to post any pictures that sit alongside the text. Hell, it won’t even let me move it to the centre of the page… but let’s not let that distract us.

I know I’ve been putting off writing the next instalment in my series, The Diamond Rose I have come up with a somewhat awkward situation. Where I realise my world has almost the exact same name of somebody else’s world… the thing is I love this other author and it never even occurred to me until I was recently re reading her books that I noticed the glaring similarity with the name…Okay, I should mention before someone points it out that the author is Alexis Morgan and her world is called Kalithia whereas mine is Kalethia… I want to sincerely apologise to everyone for my stupidity, and for not researching the name more thoroughly… It won’t happen again.

Now onto more of my dilemma…  We’ve already been to Kalethia in book one… would it seem weird if The Diamond Rose (the property set in Australia) finds out it’s connected to more than one world… I figure that way I can move away from the name similarity—and it can also bring in new characters for everyone to get to know.

I really would be interested in your opinions, so that I can get back to writing this series. That whole name thing has thrown me for a loop, because I don’t want people thinking I stole the story. I just didn’t research enough. And because I gave myself a guilt trip I had a metal aversion to continuing with the series, but in 2017 I need to be able to move forward.

Please stop by and let me know your thoughts…

10259753_695003427211884_6309451945217256490_nMoon Runners 2: I Won’t Let You Go is a story that is long overdue. I think I screwed myself on this one because I changed so much in what I originally had that I now have to bring it all back together.

I’m going to try and talk about the story without giving too much away in the plot-line. In book two Liam Kantry’s younger brother, Marcus gets his turn in the limelight. we have to hope his mouth doesn’t get him into too much trouble and if his mate, Kaleb can handle everything about Marcus.

Before they can have their happily ever after they along with the rest of the pack need to prepare for what’s coming… some is good—some not so much. Through the bad times Marcus and Kaleb need to figure out a way to work together if they are going to be strong enough to not only do their jobs, but explore the possibilities of their mating. Not everything in life is what it seems and our boys need to sift through everything to find the truth.

I’m hoping all my readers see the strides Marcus makes in his life and falls in love with him as much as I have begun to. When life gets him down he always finds a way to smile through it—even if he is breaking on the inside.
