Wednesday's Writing Update and The Faerie War by Rachel Morgan

 

Happy Wednesday!

Tonight I'll be giving a talk on writing horror, so if you're in the Charlottesville, VA area today, feel free to stop by, since it's open to the public. Click here for more information.

I got a very slow start to the month, but I do feel quite productive lately. I finished writing the short stories in Neighbors of Foxwick and have all my self-edits done, so the stories are now with my critique partners. I finished my map for the Kingdom of Foxwick. You'll get to see it next Wednesday on the blog. Also, I outlined Reigned for NaNoWriMo 2013. The premise of Reigned is: Challenged by Fate. Betrayed by Love. Imprisoned by Chaos. A new queen must break free and reign. Reigned takes place 500 years before The Fate Challenges trilogy.

Tomorrow, I plan to start fixing the beginning of Reforged, book two of The Fate Challenges, since a few things I'm changing in Reborn will change things in Reforged. My goals for the rest of the month are to edit Reborn and edit/write Part I of Reforged, so I'll be ready to start writing Part II in November for NaNoWriMo 2013.





It's party time!!! 
Today is the official online release of Rachel Morgan's third Creepy Hollow novel, The Faerie War. After that cliffhanger at the end of the second book, fans can finally find out what happens to Violet and everyone else in Creepy Hollow. If you'd like to get your copy, you can find it at the following online stores, plus a few others:

Wahoo! I'm so excited for this last book. I'm totally going to book binge and read the second and third book in a single sitting...as soon as I fix my time stopper.

My in-laws live in Charlottesville. Too bad I wasn't visiting them, or I'd come to your talk about writing horror. Good luck with it, and I hope you have a good turn-out!

Wow, you've been accomplishing heaps lately! (Can I borrow some of your productivity? Haha!) Good luck with all the editing you still need to do!
