I’m not doing very well at it so far, but since the high isn’t gonna get much above zero today, seems like a good day to stay in and write.
Came home from work today to find that The Witch is currently at #1 in the Top 100 Free lists for all of its categories on Amazon!
And in Fantasy Anthologies & Short Stories, it’s even ahead of Charles Dickens and Bram Stoker. O.o
Thanks to anyone who has downloaded it, and if you haven’t yet, now’s a good time!
The Witch is free today! It’s a risk-free way to give Land of Winds a try (and Book 1 is on sale also, if you’d like to read more).
It’s really exciting to see your own book on the shelf at the library! *___*
(Thanks to my mom for the picture; I completely forgot to go look for it after the Author Fair back in October!)
In Suomen, it is the tenth day of Pimeyskuu, the dark month, and they are celebrating Long Night and the Festival of the North Wind. 🙂
So I’ve…um. Talked myself into writing a (sort-of) horror series.
With zombies. Freaky zombies. (Among other things.)
I may have been encouraged.
While my last batch of applesauce for the season cooks, here is a writing progress update! I promised myself a writing day over the four day weekend, and I got more than 4,000 words written on Saturday! Definitely my best day in a while.
All Land of Winds things, I worked on:
- Land of Winds Book 2 – title probably decided but to-be-announced later
- The Swordsman – A novella set before Book 1 that explores Alexei Vidari’s background
- Untitled Short Story – set between Books 1 and 2, tells more of Elof and Maimu’s story
- Untitled Short Story – also set between Books 1 and 2, tells more of Alexei and Ilari’s story
I’ll post some snippets of these at some point! (Anyone interested in any of them in particular?) The Swordsman will hopefully be out in ebook form sometime in the first half of 2019, and after that the publication order would tentatively be Elof and Maimu’s story, Alexei and Ilari’s story, and then Book 2. I have no real idea of a timeline on any of that just now, depends on how quickly writing and editing go.
I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving weekend!
