Working title of this series is 'Girlie' or 'Anything for a home' or jokingly 'Fae aren't real and neither is this marriage', but I expect it to be three books. The first book is officially titled 'His Starbound Court', and I've done a blurb for it using Theodora Taylor's butter method in her class. Traveling … Continue reading His Starbound Court
Camp NaNoWriMo Win!
I revised the existing text for Girlie, now titled 'His Starbound Court' during NaNo this time. I actually finished on the 25th so early for once! Go me! I still have to write the last few scenes, but it's almost ready for the editor.
‘Still Water’ Audiobook is Permafree! (Text-to-Voice AI)
I've been working with ElevenLabs' text-to-voice AI, and I've created an audiobook version of 'Still Water', narrated by me! Per my agreement with them, my book would remain permafree for everyone who is interested to see how well it works. This was intended for authors and advertising, but I see no reason it can't mean … Continue reading ‘Still Water’ Audiobook is Permafree! (Text-to-Voice AI)
Putting Myself Out There
I submitted 'Still Water' to a group making a book list for National Disability Awareness Month, not because Dani is disabled, but because I am disabled and still making a go of it. Unfortunately, one of the readers needs it to be an audio copy. No worries! This month's push will be to produce it … Continue reading Putting Myself Out There
April: Camp NaNo and a Teaser
I'm taking part in Camp Nano this month to revise Girlie a bit! Working title is 'Anything for a Home' and I've purchased some stock art already for the main character's face. There's not much to say on that subject, so here's a teaser: The Texas summer sun was harsh and high, but tucked into … Continue reading April: Camp NaNo and a Teaser
Need to Add ‘Butter’ to My Writing
I found a writing book that blindsided me. And reading it, I'm thinking back over books I've read going, "Yes, THAT'S why it sold so well. THAT'S why I loved it." The author calls it' butter' because butter is what makes so much in cooking amazing. On top of this, it makes marketing blindingly obvious. … Continue reading Need to Add ‘Butter’ to My Writing
Card Captor Sakura Decks
So, I've decided that after the Girlie series, I want to write something with a card master as the main character. To do this, I've ordered some books on tarot, and a set of tarot cards. (Actually two sets.) BUT, I also bought the Card Captor cards. I used to have one of these sets, … Continue reading Card Captor Sakura Decks
Time for the Quarterly Reset!
In September, I took Sarra Cannon's HB90 course for managing time and realistic expectations, and I feel like it was a huge success for me. So, yes, this post is focused on her HB90 system, but there is no affiliate for me, and her course JUST closed today. That said, it's an amazing course and … Continue reading Time for the Quarterly Reset!
2022 NaNoWriMo Win!
I hit 50,000 words November 26th, and recorded it November 27th! Only 6,000 or more words left on the novel.
It’s November Which Means… NaNoWriMo!
Yes, of course I'm participating. The book I'm working on is from the 'Girlie' series, which I plan to make a series of shorter novels, 4 or 5, with a complete story arc through them. As of writing this post today (which is actually Sunday, November 6th), I am at 19,156 words! The goal is … Continue reading It’s November Which Means… NaNoWriMo!
