I am in hardcore editing-mode of my first novel, working title Blood and Water. Still, the creative side of me is hard to turn off. I love exploring ideas by writing short scenes and discovering the memories each of my characters hold dear.
Soon I will begin to share some of these scenes. Hopefully, it gets readers interested in my characters and as excited about their upcoming story as I am.
Either way, it will be a good outlet for some of my creative moments that still keeps me grounded in the story I’m telling. Enjoy!
Hello and Welcome!
I have just finished my first draft of my novel, so perhaps I am being a bit presumptive with this site. In truth, I created it two years ago when I was nearing the finish of a very different series — one that ended up in so many re-writes that I set it aside for a time.
My most recent book follows Solvi, a seventeen-year-old warrior trying to find her place amongst her people. A raid on her village sets her life on a path she could not have foreseen. Friends betray her, enemies surprise her, and along the way she discovers that all is not as she once thought.
Obviously, I am not near the publishing phase, but I plan to update this blog with each step, and hopefully one day that will include publishing news!
For more details around how I feel now that my first official first draft is complete, check out the post I wrote on my personal, random-life blog here.
