I can finally almost taste the end and can't wait to get it out there. Though Hunting Angel is a long way ready for publication. So many edits, so many re-reads, Beta's, and not to mention I need to finish the story first.
I'm getting ahead of myself, but I am just so dang excited!
I will probably be putting together a book tour for the release date of Hunting Angel as well 0_o, so look for that coming in the next month or two.
More teasers to come in the weeks following up to the release.
Every blog post should start with a yummy guy, it's like having a bowl of Wheaties in the morning. My Wheaties would have to be Damon Salvatore.
Lately I have been mulling around with a new story - a Dystopian Romance. I've been playing with ideas here and there, trying to figure stuff out (stuff, I have such a way with words). I started out writing in 1st person, then I re-wrote in 3rd person, but what I think I really want to do is 1st person multiple POV's.
The two main characters are Zoeya and Dash, so I was thinking of alternating between the two of them.
Is this a good idea? Do readers enjoy the swapping of POV's?
I personally enjoy them, but the few I have read didn't start the series out that way. It wasn't until the 4th or 5th book that the swapping of voices occurred.
Hmm... I just can't decided. I think when the time comes, I will post the intro in all three and take a poll. In the future. By future, I mean I have no idea when. I really need to keep my focus on Hunting Angel, but after that I might play around with the storyline. I am sure you will hear more about it.
If you have a preference or an opinion, let me know!
Usually this is how an evening of
writing works for me.
It's like a science.
Get bored and start playing Candy Crush on phone Open Word document Scroll through document Reread paragraph trying to remember where I left off Stare at Word, trying to remember all the great ideas I had while
driving home from my 9-5 Type a sentence or two. Maybe more if I’m feeling saucy Check out Facebook waiting to get inspired Get inspired but not with writing – home décor Stalk some decorating blogs Follow some interesting ones Then check out my blog Scold myself for getting sidetrack. Write a paragraph, maybe a page,
thinking, oh yeah on a roll Candy Crush again. Finally pass that level I’ve been stuck on for a
week. Give myself a silent high-five Open YouTube and watch newest Yogscast video Laugh butt off like an insane person. It can’t be helped. Husband sticks head in to see what is so funny. “I thought you were
writing.” Busted. Quick close YouTube. “I am, right now.” Get myself in the zone and write another paragraph Find myself on Amazon reading people’s comments Then over to Goodreads for some more lurking Prowl on Twitter for awhile Post a tweet, #hashtag like a madwoman Yell at myself for being on Twitter Pledge to writing at least 1,000 words without any interruptions Halfway through realize I haven’t checked my emails in a few hours Which then leads to more stalking numerous websites Look at clock and groan. Realize I actually need to write if I am going to finish this book. Do
that. Get a new scene in my head. Stop writing what I’m writing and skip
ahead to new scene End night, ready for bed Then all the good stuff hits. Look at laptop cooling and grab notebook Jot down ideas for tomorrow
Hopefully I am not the only author
with sporadic habits. *sighs* Though somehow a few months later I end up with a
manuscript draft. Pretty-freaking-unbelievable.
