Camp NaNoWriMo July 2015 Prep Work

I wasn't able to go to camp back in April and the foreseeable future says November will be a bust. So I'm off to Camp NaNoWriMo in just a week or so. Of course, the week (and sometimes month) leading up to this write-o-thon can be hectic. I've got a lot to catch up on and even though I'm only setting a goal of 30k words, I still need to move some projects to the side for the month.

Sweeter Dreams, a story I've been working on part time while putting stuff together for the release of Fire Hunt, is almost ready to put to the side. I have an outline and a strong first five chapters. With one or two late nights I should push another few chapters to the first draft.

Why am I starting a new story just for this Camp? Well, I'm past 10k words on Sweeter Dreams and don't want to go into July with too much prep work done. That and I've got an interesting idea for an interactive novella that I'd really like to give a chance.

I'm calling this interactive story Lost Relic and it's not really a paranormal, sci-fi or fantasy story at all. It falls into the historical / contemporary grouping I think. It's set in the early 1900's so I'm still working on where it would be in genre. I've got a rough outline for the story and a few character write ups done, but no real story written yet. I think the challenge of writing at least 1000 words a day can really help push this story out without being drug out over the next year or so.

Of course, I will be keeping up with the release of Fire Hunt. Look for a few goodies on release day, July 1st here and at the Facebook page, Hunter or Hunted.

Also, lots of love for this pup pictured above. She's my late night and early morning coffee buddy. She'll listen to hours of rambling until I get a story worked through and thought out.

Peace and Love!

My Sexy Saturday: Our Sexy Best's time for another My Sexy Saturday blog hop. This weekend's theme is Our Sexy Best and I've pulling 7 sentences from my first novel, Witch Hunt. Rei and Aidan have just run the Wild Hunt and have crashed from the adrenaline rush. Here is a peek at Aidan's waking thoughts.

"Aidan woke first. It was still dark, but he could see the beautiful woman sleeping under him. He lay there for a while with his head rested on her soft breasts. He traced his fingers along her sides, and he realized that her skin was so pale it seemed to glow. Without the moon to brighten the sky, her glow had dimmed, but she still looked like a magic flare in the night. Lying with her arms draped lovingly over him, Aidan did not want to move. He felt so calm in her arms."

June New Moon Releases

Okay, so it's the New Moon Releases, but you can still enjoy some great new releases.

In the Air Tonight by Lori Handeland centuries ago, in a small Scottish village, three baby girls escaped the wrath of a witch hunter. Today, one young woman will learn about her secret history, her heart's destiny, and the sisters she never knew she had...

With her blue-black hair and dark eyes, Raye Larsen has never fit in with the Scandinavian community of New Bergin, Wisconsin. Being adopted is part of the reason she feels like an outsider, but what really sets Raye apart is her ability to see dead people. Everywhere. She's learned to keep her visions to herself...until she stumbles onto the ghost of a murder victim who needs Raye's help. Enter Bobby Doucet, a distractingly handsome homicide detective who has been tracking a killer all the way from New Orleans. Could this be the break in his case he's been looking for all along? Meanwhile, the deeper Raye gets involved with the case-and with Bobby-the closer she comes to unlocking the mystery of her own origins. What she discovers about herself could destroy everything she knows...and everyone she loves. Is finding the truth worth the risk?

Filled with dark magic, dazzling romance, and dire suspense, In the Air Tonight is the first book in a thrilling new series by New York Times bestselling author Lori Handeland.

Released June 2nd by St. Martin's Paperbacks

Soul Scorched by Donna Grant was floating on a cloud of pure passion. Everywhere he touched, Warrick was leaving a mark on her, forever changing her. She could feel it through her skin and muscle, through bone and into her soul. It was as if he was changing her. And she welcomed it…
Her power is a blessing.

Born on the Isle of Skye, Darcy is a beautiful woman of many gifts. Fortune-telling is her forte, and she remains the only Druid who could unlock the secrets--and desires--of a Dragon King. His name is Warrick. And now that Darcy's seen into his dragon heart, nothing will ever be the same…

His passion is a curse.

Warrick never intended to put Darcy in harm's way. But ever since she revealed a shocking truth, Darcy has been hunted by the Dark Fae, who want to use her powers for their own evil purposes. Now it's up to Warrick to do whatever it takes to keep the woman who sets his soul on fire safe. But protecting Darcy means putting himself--and his entire race--in jeopardy. Is his desperate longing for one woman worth the risk of losing everything…for eternity? Dive into Soul Scorched, the sizzling next novel in the Dark Kings series from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

Coming June 30th from St. Martin's Paperbacks

Dragon's Demon by Marie Harte

The Dragons' Demon: A Dragon's DreamA prank gone wrong throws three unlikely partners together: A demon. A dragon. And an egg.
In the ordinary world, forces are at work which keep the balance of the universe in order. Enter Eve Sinclair, a higher demon with a mission—to sway those souls on the brink of Decision, to push them toward heaven or toward hell, as they are meant to go.

After a prank played by her brothers, Eve finds herself holding the proverbial bag, accused of stealing a precious dragon egg. Worse, it’s a royal egg, as she learns from Ranton, the furious commander of the dragon legion.

Not a creature to have on one’s bad side, Ranton shifts between his human and dragon forms, keeping Eve off-balance and off her game. Normally a master at manipulating males, Eve finds that Ranton is more than a match for her…as is his brother, the new dragon king. In their arms, she’s mere putty.
And soon they’re not only molding her desires, but her heart.

Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, ménage a troi, and steamy dragon love

 Released June 9th by Samhain Publishing, Ltd.

That's it or today. It's a short list, but a good one all the same. With plenty more new releases out there I can't wait to dive into reading again. If you know of a great release post a link in the comments and let me know about it!

Peace and Love!

June Round Up

Shader. Tired from kitten sitting.
I'm sure some of the readers have noticed I've missed a few things this month. In fact I looked up an hour ago and it was already June. Things have gotten hectic. My daughter has started summer vacation, I've been trying to kick start my early release marketing for Fire Hunt and our household has a new kitten who is decidedly a very destructive force. So here's the run down for my June catch up plan.

Full Moon Releases - This month we're having a New Moon Releases! The new moon this month is on the 16th. If you just can't wait till then to hear about some awesome new releases head on over to Paranormal Romance... Need I Say More Facebook page. There are always some great new release announcements there.

My Sexy Saturday Blog Hop - I try to do one of these every month and they're so much fun. Today's, June 6th, was perfect for my Sc-Fi romance I'm working on and I hate that I missed it. The theme was Our Sexy Galaxy. If you'd like to catch a peek head on over to My Sexy Saturday. It's never to late to click through the link up.

Review - I'm a bit behind on the Reading Challenges this year and to my great dismay I think it will be another week before I can even pick up a new book.

Next month I have signed up to take part in a Paranormal Romance blog hop hosted by Precious Monsters. I hope to see you all there!

Peace and Love!
