Today’s headline brings a smile. I’m struggling to teach through each school day and then pick away at Darcy’s book morning and evening. And the prompt is asking for more?
Indeed yes. Writing is a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately business. No resting on today’s laurels! Must keep that forward momentum going!
Ah, but the sidebar thingy gives a clue: two books are in the works. Because one can never have too much stuff and nonsense from me!
- Captain O’Manly in Anyone But A Pirate! I’m set to work on–but not finish–this novella-length book during November’s NaNoWriMo. So far I’m 20k words in.
- Sir Walter Elliot’s Marrying Well for Fun & Profit. Now that I know how to format, these advice columns will be released in ebook form. Not to be outdone by her father, Mary’s Pride & Precedence columns will also be included.
After that, perhaps a mystery series of some kind. Cozies are my favorite book escape, and I’ve long been wanting to do something with a Captain James Benwick-like character. You know, the smart but ordinary-looking fellow who is noticed by no one?
A continuation of Mercy’s Embrace? Maybe. The Austen world’s aversion to Elizabeth Elliot is surprisingly strong. So all three books needs rebranding for the Regency Romance market, including a set of Damonza covers. We’ll see.
The crazy thing–if all goes according to plan–is that by summer I could have six (6) books in the stable. That’s double what I have now. Best of all, Sir Walter’s book was blogged. Meaning that it’s already written!
Only two days left in the 35-Day Author Blog Challenge! I’ve been doing what James Scott Bell says: “Type hard, type fast.” See you tomorrow.
