NaNo Day 2

NaNo-2015-Participant-Banner

Last night I posted my word stats but they are actually wrong. After posting that I got a sudden burst of inspiration and ended the day with 5002 words. Which for me is a record for one day.

This morning I brought my total up to 6479 words and it’s only 10:25. Still a lot of day left and a lot of words to get out. My goal for today is 10,000 words. I think I can do it. If not, well…it’s not the end of the world and I am ahead of the game a little. If I keep this pace I will finish in 2 weeks. I am aiming for it. We’ll see.

Good luck to my fellow nano’s

NaNo Day 1

NaNo-2015-Participant-Banner

Not too bad a day for writing. Even with everything else I had to do today.

Church, laundry, lunch, another blog post. I still managed over 3000 words. Kinda proud of myself. I decided I would only post stats once a week. Much more than 2 times a week is a little annoying. At least to me. So here they are…

Word count is NaNo verified word count. Which is actually only one word short of my own count. Not too bad. I hope I can keep up this pace. The library and I are going to become good friends in the coming days.

Tau’s Pride: Deception Cover Reveal

Cover-Reveal_Dandy.png

A couple weeks ago I was so excited to reveal the cover for the first book in this new series Tau’s Pride. Yesterday on Facebook, Pakemates and friends got a quick look at the new cover for book 2 in the Tau’s Pride saga. Though it was only a short wait to be able to bring the cover to my blog the wait seemed endless. So here we are again with another incredible cover.

A Weekend in Vegas

vegas-valley-book-festival-logo

Finally getting a chance to post some pictures from a very fun weekend.

The fun started with a 6 hour drive from my home in Arizona to Las Vegas, Aside from a little rain the trip was uneventful.

The first stop was at the famous Gold and Silver Pawn store.

Sadly none of the guys were there so we had to settle for pics with cardboard Rick.

The shop is pretty interesting. I’d never been. Wasn’t really interested but my friend wanted to go so we went.

That evening we had a great time with friends, I finally got to meet Wendi, and other writers at an authors round table. We discussed bringing your characters to life. It was very interesting and informative.

Finally Saturday came. The day I had been looking forward to for weeks.

The Vegas Valley Book Festival. I was so excited to get my Bonds of Blood and Spirit books signed again. But that would have to wait. The first stop was at Alexia Purdy and Katie Salidas’ table.

After I went in search of a couple other people I was looking for I got a message on my phone saying “Come back I need a picture with you!” LOL Ok Katie. So here is Cutie pie and I.

So then naturally I had to have one of both of the girls

After all that fun I was getting a little concerned because I couldn’t find Megan Duncan. I asked Katie if she’d seen her and was pointed in the general direction. Oddly I didn’t even think to get her picture. But I did get a book 🙂
