Mini update and ?!?! Cover reveal?

The past two weeks I’ve cut, rearranged, unrearranged and re-rearranged until I’ve lost 4k words, and in my growing excitement decided it was a good time to do a cover reveal.

Do I know what I’m doing? Heck no. Am I gonna do it anyway? Heck yes.

I’m dangerously close to declaring myself capital D done, and felt this was a good time to share! As a side note, before you see the good bits, I want to mention that formatting, making page numbers, and making chapter headers is infuriating. Oh, also comma splices are my number one enemy.

I bought it from this designer!   (I adore their style, and will likely use them for book two as well!)

I sure do like updates.

I hope you like updates too!

Yesterday I purchased a  cover for Out of Darkness! I think it’s really pretty and perfect and whatnot. Now I just have to finish with my editing so I can use it and publish!

I’m over halfway through another read through, I printed out 2 copies (thanks, office depot) and sent one to my mom. Now she’s gonna hopefully be a helpful beta reader for me! There have been fewer and fewer changes each read through, so either I’ve become so used to my story that I can’t see what I need to fix, or (hopefully) it’s nearly capital F finished for real this time.

Of course, now I’m panicking because that means I need to think of words to go on the back of the book, finish the words inside the book, publish it, tell people I published it. Be right back, I think I’m going to faint.

 

Oops, I didn’t update for Camp.

Last month was Camp NaNo, and I updated the first week and then fell off the face of the planet. Oops.

My goal last month was originally 30k. I did not make that. I stopped at about 10k. Just wasn’t having a good month. But that’s okay. It’s a new month now and we can all get started on new goals 🙂

 

Camp NaNoWriMo (July 2017) Week 1!

Hello everyone!

I didn’t have it in me this month/go around for a daily entry so I’m gonna update every week! Pretend I posted this yesterday/last night!

Weekly Word Count: 8932

Total Word Count: 8932

I’m a little ahead of schedule (if you pretend it’s the 8th anyway, and not the ninth.) I’m still working on an unrelated story, it’s going interestingly so far. The working title is “The Necromancer’s Daughter” and I don’t know much more than that.

Good luck everyone! We’re still really early in the month if you haven’t started or have fallen behind your goal so get to it!

This is an Update.

Who stayed up past her bedtime but finished her third draft?

If you guessed anyone but me, then you are just silly. That’s the whole update. It needs another pass, but hopefully not as intense as the past three. Thanks for reading, have a good night!
