Whatcha Working On?

For my first installment of W.W.O Wednesday, I though I would fill you guys in on my current projects.

As you all have guessed by my updates, etc, my time is consumed with the Requiem Series for now. I've turned in final edits for DIES IRAE, and am turning in edits on LACRIMOSA this week. Next up, writing the next two books in the series. (cue the picture - my motivation)

I am an outliner, so I am spending the rest of the next couple of weeks outlining (loosely) both books. I have a short story idea related to the series that I need to get on paper as well. Then, hopefully, I will be able to begin drafting book 2 by the end of next week. My day job is back in full swing, so most of my writing time is usurped with my RL obligations. So, I am working on carving time to write - in the morning, at night, whenever I can.

I am so excited to be drafting these stories. SO EXCITED!

What are you guys working on?
OH! And I finally posted a review of Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley at Afterglows Book Reviews. Check it out!


  1. I'm almost finished planning my new project. Just a few more characterizations to go then I can start the first draft (next week!).

    It's sounds like our planning process is similar, Christine. I loosely outline too. :D

  2. I love gothic novels! I'm working on revising my YA paranormal romance that started out as a gothic romance.

  3. I'm working on .... NOTHING! I finished FE on Friday and I'm taking a week off to read (A Million Suns, anyone?) and play WoW, and watch all that TV I missed :)

    I am so excited for your books! I can't wait to read them :D

  4. Still plugging away toward the end of what I started with NaNo. 21 days left (including today) to get to my self-set deadline of having the first draft done by the end of January. Had to take a break from it after November to get some work done around the house, but now it's time to kick those last 20K into high gear. Coming up on the end, but not quickly enough.

    Also, I really love that picture.

  5. Good luck with writing the next two in The Requeim Series! I hope you'll get them done soon ^^

    Every since the new year started, my manuscript has been out of the picture. I'm just working on short stories.

  6. Nice atmospheric picture! I can see why you're drawing inspiration from it! Good luck with your outlining!

    RL is owning me right now, but I totally need to get on that time-carving for writing thing!

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
