So for April, I decided to take part (hypothetically) in Camp Nanowrimo, but instead of aiming for 50K, which just wasn’t going to happen in APRIL, I aimed to work on writerly stuff 30 minutes a day. So writing blog posts (good!), working on edits (if it happened!), and planning marketing stuff (er…) all were counted.
The problem became in the actual counting, because I started off strong and then just…sorta…lost count. Some days worked an hour, some days didn’t. Some days stared at the TV and pondered life.
So I haven’t gotten as much done as planned. (No one is surprised.) But I have worked on stuff!
My fantasy WIP is coming along slowly. I did some revision brainstorming for my light fantasy that’s in edits (which was supposed to be my focus this month. OOPS). I’m really contemplating character growth and pacing, so it has me a bit jammed. I got very much distracted by a submission call that I’m not going to finish in time, most likely.
And in less than a week, I’ll have Ties That Bind coming out! Which you can still preorder for 36% off!
For Chel, Tomlin, and Mathias, life is simple but good. They share a home and a love, and despite a few conflicts of personality, are happy. Mathias runs a magic shop, where he makes magic items and potions for his customers, and Tom is his familiar, helping supply his magic. Chel, who’s not magical, works at a bookshop and makes sure dinner is on the table for his lovers.
When Mathias suddenly comes down with a mysterious illness, Chel and Tomlin seek out answers. As Mathias’s familiar, Tomlin can sense that nothing is wrong with the magical parts of him, but when a trip to the doctor’s indicates nothing is wrong with him physically either, they start to worry.
Then Mathias collapses, and the search to find the truth becomes urgent.
