As usual I am taking part in NaNoWriMo.
For those of you who have no idea of what that is, here’s the official explanation:
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.
On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.
It’s essentially a competition with yourself, but you can buddy up with other writers, inspire and encourage each other and take part in events – it all depends on how you like to work. For the last couple of years I have started the competition but been unable to finish anything. It’s been a rough time personally (as regular blog readers will know) and that has an irritating tendency to take away my focus and determination.
Anyhoo, this year I’m working on a standalone book set in the world of “The Heir of The Dragon” but set a few years after the events of that story, tentatively entitled “Chamberlain’s Curse” Here’s the Blurb again:
Kai-Lynn Riordan loved Te Ling.
The day-time streets thronged with tourists that would pay her to tell their fortunes. The night-time streets crawled with people who needed her services as a Hunter.
Life was good.
The only drawback to Te Ling was that the only thing that you could rely on was that everything would change…
I’m posting the chapters each day on my Patreon Page; however, only Patrons will be able to read them for the first 3 days. The story is proceding nicely and I’ve been above the goal wordcount of 1667 words every day so far (it’s early days yet) so I’m fairly happy with myself at the moment.
I’m also going to reduce the price of “The Heir of The Dragon” for this month only, so if you haven’t read it yet (why not?) you’ll be able to pick up an e-book copy for £0.99 / $1.00!
You can buy a copy anywhere that sells e-books – but here are the main links:
or if you prefer a different format to Kindle, just pop over to Smashwords, where they have it available in all sorts… https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/421184
