NaNoWriMo 2021 and Runaway Lyrics takeover

Hello Readers, I hope everyone is doing well. It’s been a minute since my last post. I’ve had to cut back on my reading lately to give myself time for National Novel Writing month, you the time of year where everyone is struggling to write a novel in 30 days AND cook dinner for thirty family members. Writers are crazy.

My project for NaNo is Shattered Lyrics. It’s the sequel to Runaway Lyrics that released this past September. Behold my Inspiration collage:

I’m about seven thousand words in right now. (Yes I am way behind in NaNo.)

Once again I am writing this story as part of the Arista band of fairy tale retellers challenge. In 2021 the challenge is to write a Snow Queen retelling.

Snow Queen is a hard fairytale to retell, it is very meandering and has a lot of characters.

Thankfully Runaway Lyrics had a lot of characters too.


In other news: This happened.

My book Runaway Lyrics was nominate as the November book of the month by the Fellowship of Fantasy Indie Book Club.

I did not get the coveted spot but I was a runner up. As a result I get an author take over day. That day is today! (November 10th 2021)

Please join the Book club’s Facebook group if you would like to see me share about Runaway Lyrics and get in on my giveaways.

Also as a side note, The winning book was written by my cover designer. I’ve read it before and it is very good, Beauty and the Beast meets Norse mythology. She is so talented at both art and writing.

    I chose a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast for my Nano project this year. I’m having a lot of fun with this adventure.
