2. I’m participating in NaNoWriMo 2014, and so far, it’s not going the best in the world. I’m only 2900 words in for the month, but hey, that’s better than nothing. I’m working on The Fire: Book 2.5, and let me tell you… absolute craziness. I didn’t think it was possible for my bad people to be any worse than they are, but… it is. Bob and company come up with something especially heinous to further their plot for revenge, and omg… it’s awful.
3. I’m toying with the idea of putting a sort of family tree on here… or maybe character profiles of the main characters from Book 1. I know the amount of characters are overwhelming at times, especially for readers who are accustomed to 5 characters or less in their novels, but please, STICK WITH IT. You won’t be sorry that you did. Everyone is important and everyone is intertwined. One of our awesome reviewers likened it to Dallas or Dynasty, and honestly, I couldn’t be more pleased. My earliest (and happiest) memories involve my beloved mamaw sitting with me on her couch, eating apples and peanut butter, and watching one of those infamous nighttime soaps – Falcon Crest, Knots Landing, Dynasty, The Colbys. That was “our” thing. My grandmother was a lifelong “Days of our Lives” fan, and taped her “stories” everyday. We watched until the day before she died. So that’s my inspiration… those awesome 80’s shows – sagas that you could get lost in. Families with money, power, prestige who are hell-bent on revenge against anyone standing in their way.
Y’all have a great day and remember to check out Marie’s Giveaway!!!!!!!!!
