Writing Updates

Another year is more than halfway gone. Despite many terrible events, it appears my life Just Keep Writingis back on track. This coming month is NaNoWriMo and while I plan to write quite extensively, I won’t officially be joining in the mayhem. If capable of pulling this off, I expect to have around 65k-75k words written in the span of a month across four books. To see the full list along with the cover reveals and giveaways, you’ll need to join my street team.

After those four books are completed, I will be ahead of my writing schedule and will continue surging ahead. By working on multiple projects at once, I am more capable of churning out a higher word count by switching between them as needed. With so many trunked stories from over the years, there is no way I’m going to be running out of material any time soon.

 

“Midnight Retribution” Published

Midnight RetributionReturning to Midnight Hollow, Loralye and her companions discover the Elders have completely unleashed the Werewolves. Hope for their future is restored when an important alliance is made and an elaborate plan is set into action. They must face a variety of strange monsters, an astonishing discovery, and overcome grief. It’s still only the beginning of returning Midnight Hollow back into a safe haven.

This is fourth in a thirteen book series. Available on Kindle.

A Five-Star Amazon Review – This is a must-read! I’ve patiently waited for this book to release since finishing the last one. Feldman did not disappoint with a fast-paced exciting story.

The shocking twist in this book will have me thinking about these characters and story for awhile. Can’t wait for the next!

 

“Shadows of the Sea” Published

Pirates, mermaids, monsters, oh my!Shadows of the Sea

The depths of the ocean hold many untold secrets. Some are beautiful tales of mermaids who ride seahorses, and others are massive monsters bent on destroying every ship crossing its path.

Delve into these seven stories by the following authors: A.M. Cummins, Marcus Bines, Joann M. Shevock, Hui Lang, Irina Ivanova, Layne Calry, Angel Blackwood.

This is one of nine anthologies that have been published so far by J.E. Feldman’s FWG. Available on Kindle and in paperback.

A Five-Star Amazon Review – Top-class salty fantasy fiction! I bought this as an opportunity to read some new and different authors and I was not disappointed. Some really excellent writing and stand-outs for me are Blessed be the Brine by Marcus Bines (Enjoyable nods to the classic magic-comes-true tropes of the 80s, but with some proper horror suspense thrown in. Loved the tension building in the curtain scene); Seapod Seven by A M Cummins (delightful chance to inhabit a near-future world, establishing bases in the depths and finding we don’t know everything we think we do, and our inate curiosity and guileless assumption of affability may not be the best qualities for explorers); Malicyne’s Puzzle by Christian Michael Dutton (fabulous piratical adventure disrupting gender expectations, with shades of Indiana Jones and a twist in the tail); and A Legend of Five Stones by Irina Ivanova (beautiful bittersweet mini-epic of tragedy and *hopefully* triumph). Really looking forward to searching out other titles by these authors, my only complaint is that some of the stories ended too abruptly…but is it just that I wanted more?
