NaNoWriMo is Coming

A cousin of mine has been encouraging me to take on the massive task of doing NaNoWriMo this year. Part of me is dreading it, but some other part of me is thinking that I finished Hard Bank Left in little more than a month using the chapter-a-day method. So, here I am, thinking of what exactly I want to write about and a few under-appreciated ideas come to mind. If you, my loyal fans could help me narrow down which novel I should write, I would really appreciate it.

The tentative titles, genres, and loglines I have in mind are as follows:

We Are Pilots (near-future post-invasion)

Delta, an Air Force fighter pilot, is kidnapped in a sudden alien invasion, forced through a screening process, and is forced to fly as a pilot for the invaders in their long term interplanetary war.

Driven (dystopian sci-fi)

In the future, a terraformed Mars loses contact with Earth, leaving its unsteady government system vulnerable to the power-hungry crime lords that have long since been pulling the strings in political realms. Rya leaves her two sisters shortly after their parents die in order to work for one of these crime lords as a race car driver, only to discover that she's in over her head in more ways than one.

In the Time of Angels (religious comedy)

After Altamont, the Angel of Destruction, frees Belfast, the Angel of Time, from his "eternal prison" she guilts him into what she believes is the most important mission of her entire career.

Feather Flies, Jixies, and the Secret Door (YA Fantasy)

When her mother is assigned over seas, Jessica is sent to live with her father in his large, mysterious house where she discovers that not all childhood fantasies are imaginary.

Long time no Blog!

Well, it's been a couple weeks. I've noticed that a few of you still regularly check in to see what's going on. Thank you for your continued support.

Thanks to the up and coming publication in Book-it! I've been forced into doing a lot of revisions and editing. This, of course, leaves me with very little time to do much blogging. So, I've decided to cut my posts down to one - maybe two - posts a week, but don't expect whole heaps. I am hard at work on some very exciting projects! Look forward to hearing from me soon!

Fan Art Friday

Sooo... my effort to gain more followers and get more fan art was a total fail. No responses. I'm just going to have to try this again in a few months. No biggie.

But in the meantime, this leaves me with slim to no pics to share with you. I've been super busy doing edits so that for the up and coming printing in the Book-it! magazine. But, I suppose I can come up with something. Let me see... ah! Here is some art I've been admiring lately. Some inspirations for Target Lost, my webisode series leading up to Tailslide. (forgive me if I've shared these before)

Introducing Nannette!




aaaand more Maggie. I seriously love Maggie.

Fan Art Friday

I'm extending the due date on the competition by another week. The last two weeks have been really busy and irritating and difficult for me. But I'm here to do a little bit of positive at the end of the week, and hopefully bring you a little bit of sunshine to carry you through the weekend.

Welp, it's Fan Art Friday, and once again I am short on fan art... However! Never let it say that I shall be deterred!

I've had some requests on reference photos for a couple that I absolutely love: Josh and Gabe. I revealed them briefly about a year ago, thinking at the time that the very next book I would be writing would be Shifter Centric... come to find out, I have a lot of work to do before I can start writing SC - which is intended to be to HBL what the Ender's Shadow series is to the Ender's Game series. So! For your entertainment, and reference, here is more of Josh and Gabe.

I hope you love them as much as I love them. ;) You get to meet them in the last parts of Hard Bank Left.
