of titles and word counts

      4 Comments on of titles and word counts

It took me a while, but I finally decided on a title for my Nano-novel. Dead Transgressions. Sounds pretty detective-y, right? Anyway. I’m at 30K. My plan is to win Nano by Saturday the 12th. If I still need to finish the book, I’ll keep writing. If not, I’ll let it sit and focus on other things. Probably The Jade… Read more »

Adra got shot and it was totally bad-ass

Well, my main character, Adrasteia deKarme, got shot in the last chapter I wrote. It was in the line of duty, and totally bad-ass. The skin around her shoulder got melted off and then rebuilt from scratch. Thank the Goddesses for very advanced medical technomancy. She was very upset about her jacket being ruined, however. (Don’t worry; fashion technology is… Read more »

FudgeeOs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

At this rate I’ll probably run out. Luckily I have a lot of Pepsi Throwback (which, honestly, who came up with that name? Retro works a lot better and sounds less like a recessive genetic mutation) to last me until next week, at least (3 cases should be enough, right?), when my loan comes in. At which point I pay… Read more »

New cover for Bellica, among other things

      Comments Off on New cover for Bellica, among other things

I designed one cover for Bellica, and then realized it really need some green in it. I’d always imagined Bellica to be a green-covered book, so why I designed a cover without any green is anyone’s guess. (I was super excited and rushed the process.) So here is the new cover: About the picture: my model, Dana Kagis, is playing… Read more »
