First things first, I’d like to announce the winners of the five Zellie Wells trilogy e-cards from my Indelibles Beach Bash post.
Delphina, Artemis, Brandi, Susan, and Linda! Congratulations to you all and thank you to everyone that entered the drawing.
I’ll be sending the signed e-cards out on Tuesday.
ROW80 update – I haven’t updated in forever – apart from a couple of status updates on the Facebook page. Mostly, because every time I thought about writing one, I realized nothing much had changed from the Wednesday or Sunday before.
Now, I have lots saved up to report.
Both are selling pretty well, I have no complaints, especially given that we are about to move into what I’ve found to be the slowest months for book sales.
Writing the Day of Sacrifice series was an interesting experiment and one I’m not likely to repeat EXACTLY any time soon. My advice would be that if you’re going to write a serial, put out an installment on a weekly basis and have most, if not all, of the installments written beforehand. The DoS stories were fun to write and I loved the characters, but it was an extremely stressful endeavor.
I plan on doing another novelette “series” with Back in Time serving as the jumping off story, but these will all have a shared Time Travel Romance theme and can be read out of order as standalones.
What am I working on NOW? I started writing the first book in my new upper YA….NA? Penny Black trilogy. The prologue was great fun to write – it’s all characters from the Zellie books catching the reader up.
However, when I went to write Penny’s first chapter, it all came out in first person present instead of first person past, like I’d planned.
Hmm. I’m going to roll with it. It just seems to fit her personality. My only problem is that the prologue is third person past and I planned on writing alternating chapters in another character’s voice – first person past. I have to make some decisions about tense, obviously. All I know is that I’m not interested in doing the whole shebang in third person past or alternating between first person and third person past. I did that on the Zellie books and it was hard to switch back and forth.
I think the prologue can be different from the rest of the novel…but I just won’t know until I’ve finished the book, I guess.
I would love some advice on this one!!!
Anyway, that’s what I’m working on now. I’ve also got a couple of half-written essays I need to finish for Be Awesome, Beautiful Dreamer, a pen name story that needs attention, and I want to get started on the next BiT story so that I’ll have something to publish at mid-summer. Otherwise, that’s probably too long of a break in between published works.
But, for now, I’m going to go put on some sweatpants (it’s still March in Oregon) and go see Dark Shadows.
Have a great rest of the holiday weekend!
