A congratulatory shout-out to Eight-Lady-Jeanne, whose Amazon author page went live this week. Her first book, The Demon Always Wins, which comes out September 1, is up and ready for pre-orders.
As of 3:23pm PST 8/22/2018, the book had reached #1443 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Paranormal category.
I’m vicariously enjoying watching the whole process and can’t wait for release day.
Seeing Jeanne’s book up on Amazon is just the motivation I needed to focus on my own writing. While I’d love to see my own Amazon author page, that’s a bit further down the line for me. The current goal I’m working toward is getting my two draft manuscripts buffed and polished so I can submit them to the 2019 Golden Heart contest. I hadn’t looked at one of the manuscripts for quite a while and there’s a bit more work needed than I initially thought – just what Jilly experienced when she dusted of her own Contemporary story to get it ready for the same contest, so at least I’m in good company.
After the Day Job today I’ll be working on filling a few Regency plot-holes. I think I’ll warm up my creativity with some writing sprints before I dive into the story.
Care to join me?
For those of you working away on a story (whether a first draft or a polished version on its way to publication), we’d love to hear a bit – whether it’s a scene, a paragraph, or even a phrase that you are especially pleased with and would like to share. Seriously – feel free to share. I’m going to keep asking until someone does. 🙂
If you don’t have a story in progress, or just want to work on something new, maybe today’s writing prompt will catch your creative fancy. This week we’ve got a theme to go along with our random words.
Here is today’s writing prompt:
Write a story featuring: great news!
And includes any (or all) of the following random words:
business ceremonial emperor finishing
bodies stone flags devour
kitten garden coincidence ransom
vision believe jade celebrity
Whether you’re sharing a bit of your current work or writing something fresh based on the writing prompt, we hope you’ll join us for today’s Story Time.
Happy writing to all!
