Currently “Living in Interesting Times” is taking a vacation with my beta readers; and while it does, I’m back to working on “The Swans of War”, the sequel to my urban fantasy “The Lands That Lie Between”.

Over the weekend, I’d started looking for a good picture for the cover, and the search was taking more than a little time. I found pictures of swans that were

  • peaceful
  • beautiful
  • serene
  • loving
  • pretty much everything but war like

Now swans, as you may or may not know, are beautiful birds, but they are also big and aggressive. An angry swan can break a man’s arm with the swing of its wing; and, in my novel, these are Germanic swan shape shifters, who are martial barbarian nomads with heavy accents, anger management issues and impulse control problems.

A pretty swan meant for the front of a wedding invitation wouldn’t do.

So I had searched through page after page of “pretty but not the right” swans on Fotolia, Good Bye Tol Eressea, Hello Eldamara site where you can purchase the rights to photos and illustrations, and I’d just about given up..

and then I found it.

Tentatively, here’s the picture for the cover of the Swans of War

and I’m doing the happy writer- publisher dance.

Last November, the Forces of Darkness were thoroughly thwarted and the power remained in the hands Celtic Knotwork 007of the Seelie Court,

But Evil never sleeps.

Now, a princess is missing, illness fills the Seelie domain, dark figures behind the scenes seek to unseat the new rulers and take power for themselves, an enchanted race prepares for war,

And the Fate of their world and ours rests once more in the hands of a woman and her wisecracking cat…”

And I’m back to work on the Swans of War…

well the working draft of Living in Interesting Times has been edited and polished up, broken into chapters and sent on vacation with my wonderful beta readers

And now, while that manuscript is off at camp, it’s time to go back to the partially finished second book of my urban fantasy series that started with the Lands That Lie Between

It’s time for me to spend some quality time with the Swans of War…

No home calls last Thursday, which gave me a lot more time to polish up the current manuscript on Living in Interesting Times and get it ready for my beta readers. I:

  • added a third visualization for time travel  to the appendix,Female entrepreneur on the street with storm
  • roughed out and refined glossary definitions,
  • triple checked for errors, such as missing words and missing punctuation,
  • did a third read through of the entire thing and polished as I went,
  • confirmed email addresses for my betas,  and sent out  chapters  to read at their convenience.

This manuscript has now gone on a vacation with my beta readers, and, while I’m waiting to hear back from everyone, I can go back to working on book two in my urban fantasy series.

How’s your writing going?

…and now I’m back to work on my next book for public circulation

There’s an old vaudeville joke about a curse that goes “may you live in interesting times…”

well here we all are, living in those interesting times. That’s rough for just about everyone, and even rougher for folks who are psychically active or energetically sensitive.

And so, I’m writing a book about practical energetic techniques for living in interesting Female entrepreneur on the street with stormtimes. These are things that can help in times of great social upheaval, such as we have now, but also apply to personal challenges, like health issues, family emergencies, the loss of a job or other such times of chaos.

I’m just about  to the point where I can start editing my rough draft, before running it by my beta readers, and doing any re-writes I need to do. Am hoping to have this out later this year.

Hoping your times are only as interesting as you like them to be

And the work of the “impossible writing project” continues.  4 weeks left to make things happen.

Sinus tango and other demands have slowed my progress, but still I’m continuing to pull this together. Just keep writing, just keep writing 😉

  • Rough draft written for 20 chapters
  • First rewrite done
  • edit for smooth transitions between chapters completed
  • Chapter order rearranged x3 to improve flow and function
  • Cleaned out excess words
  • Punctuation scan and corrections
  • Spacing edit complete
  • Index topics begun
  • Chapters shipped to my heroic beta readers with all my admiration and gratitude
  • First chapters returning- review and save

and, while I’m waiting for the beta step to be completed, I’m turning to another family writing project and also some chores that I’m behind on

Still daunting, but I’m feeling pretty good about this

How’s your writing going?

Not everyone knows it, but I have a main line of books that are available for sale to the general public, and I also have a limited edition book. There are only two copies of this book in the world

This very special book was put together specifically for a family member, who had need of specialized information, written in a way that would work especially for her. There are only two copies in the universe- one belongs to her and one belongs to me (because I like to have a finished copy of every book I’ve written…)

Woman sitting in meditating position by the poolWell it recently came up that there’s another area of information that I’m familiar with that is the next step on her spiritual path.

She needs the information. I have the information. And her birthday is less than 7 weeks away

 

One writer

One topic

7 weeks

Can I do it?

We shall see……
