NaNoWriMo 2006

This is my second year participating in National Novel Writing Month, and it's been an interesting experience. It was initially daunting, I admit. There is some truth to NaNoWriMo's contention that the second year of participating is harder than the first. It was that way for me.

I took a week off work earlier this month and ended up taking time off writing as well. So I had to revise my daily word count. I'm at a little more than 35,000 words right now, and I'm on track to make 50,000 if I keep up my current pace. I'm working on my second futuristic.

One of my favorite things about writing are the unexpected turns the story takes. This one has some character developments that surprised me. I do love that feeling. Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo? If so, how are you doing?

The Seventh Sense

November has been a very busy month for me. I'm participating in National Novel Writing Month, and I also took a week off to go to California with a friend. While I was gone, I received some news. Cobblestone Press sent me a contract for The Seventh Sense. Here's a blurb for the story.

When Erin Andrews buys an antique ring, her practical world turns upside-down. First, she hears a disembodied voice. Then, she receives a series of threatening notes. In her search for answers, Erin seeks advice from antiquities expert Luke Hunter, a man who's deeply interested in the ring.

Luke has been researching the secrets of Erin's ring for more than a decade. His help--and protection--proves invaluable, but can Erin trust that he wants her . . . and not her antique ring?
No firm release date yet, but it looks like it will come out in April. This will be my first paranormal.
