WIP Update

Progress reports died really quick… I thought I’d be able to keep that one up through November, at the very least.

I never remember to come back and blog… Oh, well. Eventually, I’ll get the hang of it.

On to business!

The Blind World (Brimstone Series Book One) is done with first round edits. I’m typing it up again from the start so I can give it another small polishing round before sending it off to beta readers. (Not that I even have beta readers yet. If you’d like to sign up, you can access the form here.)

Nineteen-year-old Miranda Schaffer’s freshman year turns out to be more than she bargained for when her classmate, Cole, tries to convince her that her house sits on the gateway to Hell. Cole identifies himself as a Guardian, whose sole purpose in life is to prevent the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from completing their rituals to raise Hell.

On top of that, the cute real estate agent interested in the house is, according to Cole, one of the Four Horsemen, and she should stay away from him at all costs. That’s easier said than done when she can’t get him out of her head.

Will her indecision leave her with Hell to pay?

Literally.

I’m putting Missing You on hiatus. because I can’t seem to be able to put down the Brimstone series long enough to work on it. I will be reviving it the first chance I get.

I’ve started writing The Melancholy Storm (Brimstone Series Book Two) but I don’t want to get distracted by it too much while TBW still isn’t done all the way.

It’s just a small update, but I’m working really hard on this series. It’s coming along so nicely!

Until next time!

Facebook Fan Page?!

Now that I’ve finished my first book, I’m on the lookout for readers!

No, you won’t actually get your hands on the book until at least the end of January.

Why should you ‘like’ me, then? Well, because only people who ‘like’ me will get to hear about news.

That’s not true, though, is it? You can also follow me. No, not like a stalker! …Well, I guess it could be considered a form of stalking.

Anyway…

Like‘ or follow me so you can learn more about my upcoming books and keep up with everything going on in my writing world.

Progress Report: NaNoWriMo #1

November_1Woot! It’s NaNoWriMo time! That means National Novel Writing Month, for those of you who aren’t aware. I’m resuming work on book 1 of the Brimstone series.

 

Despite my rocky start, I’m pretty much on track with where I want to be. (I’m a little behind my personal goal, but I’ll be writing for the rest of today to catch up.)

 

NaNoWriMo word count: 23,425, before writing on day 7

 

The Blind World word count: 63,451

Page count: 134

 

It’s really coming along! I’ll finish it up before I reach the goal of 50,000 words for the month, and at that point, I’ll be putting work in on Missing You.

 

Exciting stuff!

 

See you next week,

Mari

 

Hi!

If you’re here, chances are you already know me (somewhat). But here’s a recap:

  • I love to read and write.
  • My goal is to become a published author, whether through traditional means, small press, or on my own.
  • I use way too many things to procrastinate (including setting up this website).

For the foreseeable future, I plan to use this blog to keep track of my writing progress and ideas, as well as to update anyone who wants to know about my journey from first draft to (hopefully) published author.

Thanks for taking the time to join me on this journey!

xoxo,

Mari
