I’m so proud (Ha!) to be a part of the first book in the Seven Deadly Sins YA Anthology series, Pride. This collection is full of very talented writers, and all proceeds go to the charity FirstBook.
Please consider purchasing a copy! eBooks are only 99 cents and you can find paperbacks on Amazon or Barnes & Nobles. You can find more information on the anthology, pricing, and where to purchase here.
I’m not all that in tune with my feels–especially the sentimental ones–so I’ll keep this short, but a great man has passed away today, way too soon.
He was the author who made me fall in love with reading and who inspired me to set my creativity free. I strive for my own writing to be even half as witty, intelligent, and fantastic as his.
I believe everyone should have a good death. You know, with your grandchildren around you, a bit of sobbing. Because after all, tears are appropriate on a death bed. And you say goodbye to your loved ones, making certain that one of them has been left behind to look after the shop.
I hope you had a good death, my friend. You will be sorely missed.
Even though it seems like I may have fallen off the face of the planet, I promise I’m still here. I’ve just put my drabbles to the side while I’ve been focusing on larger projects. They’re still in early stages of production so I can’t talk too much about them, but it’s keeping me really busy with no time to focus on my own stuff–including my mini word-vomits.
Well, that’s all I can say for now. See you in another four months (just kidding–sort of)!
This year I participated in Novel in a Day, which is a collaboration between writers to complete one chapter of a novel in one day. Afterwards all of the chapters are compiled into the complete novel.
It’s organised by Pigfender on the Scrivener forums Literature and Latte (but you don’t need to use Scrivener to participate–newbies are welcome), and he does a fantastic job! The participants are basically going in blind–you have no idea what you’re writing until you get your brief, and even then you’re given only the barest bones of context so you’re not sure where your part fits in with the rest of the story (although you’re welcome to guess).
If you’re interested, you can get more information about the project here. He only hosts this once a year and this year’s has just passed, but I highly encourage you all to sign up next year! It’s definitely a challenge and I think I aged 10 years in one day, but I would do it again in a heart beat!
You can see past Novels in a Day here, and you can find this year’s novel, Section 7, here. There were enough participants this year to have multiple copies of the same book. I’m in the red version so if you’re only going to check out one copy then check out that one! But feel free to compare both versions. It’s interesting to see the authors’ different takes on the same subject.
As some of you may know, I assisted with writing for Seasons of the Wolf, a visual novel with RPG elements. While the game will not be launched for another few months, the promo trailer has just been released. I encourage everyone to view it here. You can also check out more games by Winter Wolves here.
