The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

Thanks to Dreampunk Geek for nominating me for the Next Big Thing Blog Hop!

I should have gotten this on Tuesday, but my blogging is minimal during NaNoWriMo.

What is the working title of your book?

Earth Shaker

Where did the idea come from for the book?

The idea of two lovers holding out in a cathedral with their comrades, while an army marches on them.

What genre does your book fall under?


What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

A man teams up with two mercenaries to go after his friend, who is marching to war, and ends up as the pawn of his companions and an angry Goddess.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

… … … … I dunno.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Agency! Until I give up… Then to Amazon or Barnes and Noble we go!

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Work in Progress.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I’m not really sure. I think there’s a splash of discworld to the layout (no chapters), and some Glen Cook to the style as well. But other stories? I couldn’t begin to say.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

It is a story about finding forgiveness, a protagonist rescuing the knight, hopefully a fun adventure along the way.

For the Next Big Thing Blog Hop, I nominate:

Dreampunk Geek – No one said I couldn’t

Let Them Grumble

um… I dunno how many nominees there has to be.


NaNoWriMo Check in #2

Hey everyone! We’re 2 weeks into NaNoWriMo, and I hope everyone’s doing well. I’ve been a little bit ahead of the curve, and managed to hit the big 25000 a day early! Here’s to all of you making it that far and to the finish line!

I also have to thank Dreampunk Geek for nominating me for an award! I will do the required post for that tomorrow.

Best of luck everyone, and keep writing!

A NaNoWriMo Check In!!!

Well guys, it’s been a week since my last post. I’ve been hard at work on NaNoWriMo, working late almost constantly, and trying to balance what little remains of my free time for everything else in between.

That’s why I decided to check in with you all today. Those of you participating, how far along are you? As of the end of November 7th, I can proudly say, I’m only a couple of words shy of 13,000  myself. Hopefully you all are coming right along with it.

While it is as of yet unnamed, I think it’s coming along better than expected.

With this, I leave you all 2 questions.

1) How many words have you written?

2) Are you looking for a writing buddy? I know that having someone to try to keep up with has been a huge help to me getting this far. I’m happy to extend the same service to those of you who ask. Just let me know, and I’ll leave you my NaNoWriMo user name.

Keep writing!

Sporadic Posts

With NaNoWriMo upon us, I have to admit my posting will be sporadic at best. I’ll try to maintain some regularity, but no promises! Best of luck to all participants!
