Novel Complete

So, I’d finished the 50,000 word requirement for NaNoWriMo a few days ago, but today, on the second to the last day, I finished the novel at 88,000 words. It’s so awesome! Can I say that about my own work? It’s going to polish up good and shiny. I hope to get it out to you next year and I hope you love it as much as I do.

Here’s to the Black Arrow and the World of Two Moons!

NaNo Bagged and Tagged

I’m done with 50,000 words of human and cat people adventures… well, not done yet. The novel is only half complete, but I’m very excited about the plot, the action, the romance and the steamier moments. I can’t wait to finish the World of Two Moons and deliver it all to you.

I will need a new title though. Maybe a title naming contest when I’m closer to publishing. Fun times.

NaNo GO! The World of Two Moons


Tomorrow I start writing the first book of the World of Two Moons. It’s erotic high fantasy and I’ve been churning this story in my head for years. I have a fantasy cat race called the felinori, hermaphroditic and tribal. They have relationships in triads. They have a holy tree (which I had this idea before Avatar… I’m always so slow on writing my ideas down.) that they can speak to their ancestors through. A shamanistic, earth-based faith, they bury their dead, because burning them causes the sprit to be scattered on the breeze and it takes years for the spirit to coalesce.

Akani, my human, has a dark past. He’s my Xena character. As a young man he was rash and brash and was quite an ass. But he realizes his wrongs have put a country–two countries!–in turmoil and he’s vowed to do what he can to end the war.

And he needs guides. He tricks the three felinori into helping him.

Tomorrow I write my first words of this story. I’ve background and character sketches and world building files, but I haven’t written a single word of story. I’m excited to bring the World of Two Moons to life and watch Akani, Mrsharra, Thaladan and Hamnar jump off the page.

Damn, I love NaNoWriMo.
