Words and Whatnot

A place for my words… and whatnot

Why hello there lovely readers. I have a surprise that I spoiled in the title of this post!

Out of Light is now available for preorder! It will be released on October 5th, 2019!

For now only the eBook is available because I don’t know how to do preorders with the physical copy.

Out of Darkness is, of course, still available. You should all buy it so I can get 100 sales.

Now that Out of Light is done, I will focus on Into the Void and decide if it is a viable third book. If not I’ll scrap it and move on to different worlds and different magic.

Hello my lovely readers!

I figured it would be a good time for an update. I know I’m awful at keeping up on here, but I told you I’d only update when I had something other than “I’m working on it, more info to come.”

Well, I got Out of Light back from my lovely editor yesterday and have begun working on these changes. It seems I don’t really know how commas work.

My original spur of the moment goal was going to publish on my birthday. I decided against this, and am now aiming for October 5th.

That was my Gramma’s birthday. She was the catalyst that started my writing, and so it seems fitting that one of my books should share her birthday.

Like a mother with her children, I don’t pick favorites but I totally do so Out of Light is the best choice to share a birthday with.

Anyway, that’s the entire update. I’m gonna go delete some commas.

Chapter One – Nathalie

“Help me,” a ragged voice called.

Nathalie skidded to a halt, slipping on a patch of damp leaves. The beacons in her satchel shifted, sending out a soft clink of crystal against crystal as she caught herself on a low-hanging branch. “Hello?” she called, hoping for a repeat of the cry. If anyone answered, it was quickly lost in the din of water dripping from leaf to leaf, courtesy of the morning’s rain.

Hello lovely readers.

You know that feeling when you look at a word for too long, or say it too many times, and you convince yourself it’s not a word? Yeah, I’m not entirely convinced that ‘was’ is a word anymore.

Anyway, editing is going… well? It feels like it’s going well, anyway. I’ve cut about 4k words since… Well, whenever I said it was at 109k words. I’m nearly done with this (annoying) round of edits, then will jump to more nitpicking because that’s just how I roll. I’m so ready to finish this so I can go back to the fun part.

Anyway, since there has been some more  editing (cleaning) done on Chapter 1, I reposted it! Here is a link! 

Work is work and I pretend it doesn’t exist outside work. (As is customary.)

I finished reading The Magicians (I didn’t like it, to be honest.) Now I’m reading (rereading)  The Redemption of Althalus because it popped into my head and it seemed like a good idea.

Okay, I guess I should probably stop procrastinating. I hope you enjoyed this “update.”

Hello lovely readers.

This update is not very interesting. I don’t have a huge word count change or massive story changes. Everything is little bitty details that I’m picking at. Currently, (like literally right now,) I’m listening to Word read Out of Light so I can catch missing words and weird sentences.

If you’re interested in my life not in writing/editing, then it’s mostly been a lot of working and sleeping. I like my job though it does leave me really tired at the end of the day. I’m playing around with D&D on the weekends.

Also reading The Magicians. 

Anyway, good night! ❤
