Thank goodness for Fall Break! I'll be finishing up the first draft of The Whispers tonight, and then I'll be looking at my NaNoWriMo project, gearing up for November 1st. The novel I'll be working on is December Rose, and I'm both excited and nervous. I'm always excited by a new project. I'm nervous because this will be my first historical novel. Still, it's going to be an interesting 30 days to nail down 50,000 words. I didn't quite make it last November, but I still finished the book in January of this year. Let's see if I can make it this year. And if you are also participating, send a buddy request for dannie18 so we can commiserate.
As a national bestselling author, Rose Conrad has entertained millions of readers, at least before Altzheimer's set in. Now Rose is dying, and her granddaughter, Clara, has come to care for her. Desperate to know more about the grandmother she's losing, Clara looks at the novels Rose has written to find one striking commonality--all of them include a character named Peter, starting when he is a young man, a rebel fighter in WWII, and ending with his last breath as an old man.
Clara senses a story here, one that goes beyond fiction, and even though it seems the only person who knows the truth is dying, she has to find out the truth about Peter before Rose is gone forever because the key to Rose is Peter.
Here's my latest book trailer. It's for the novel The Only Life There Is and features a song I co-wrote with Laura Moyers.
I'm always glad when one book ends so I can start writing another. I think it's the fact that all these fun ideas come at me, and I really can't do anything when I'm in the middle of a book so it's kind of like being a kid in a candy store when I go to pick my next project. Since the last two novels I've written--Dreamer and Witness--were both young adult, I decided on a women's fiction title. Here's the cover, which was designed by Claudia at Phatpuppy Art:
The only thing worse than an abusive husband is a dead abusive husband bent on revenge.
That's what Kate Thibeaux is facing, considering last year she killed her own husband, Kevin Garrison, when he'd left her no choice. She's changed her name, her looks, and everything else about her, as if that would stop Kevin. Kevin haunts her every step, and she wonders if she's going crazy when she moves back to her hometown in a last-ditch effort to leave the past behind.
Kevin, however, won't be forgotten even as Kate reunites with her best friend, Melody Kriss, who introduces her to her brother, Adam Kriss. Neither Melody nor Adam knows about Kevin, but some people refuse to stay buried. When their lives collide, Kate isn't looking for love, and Adam isn't looking to save anyone, but sometimes people find what they need in the last places they expect.
In looking at the novels, I'd like to release in 2012, I have seven particular projects in mind, and of those seven, I have already completed the first draft of these four:
The other three novels are in various stages of completion:
I guess I'll see how far I get with each project. Here's hoping for a wonderful year!
I'm an indie author with over forty books.
