I began the novella last Friday and so far I have almost 4300 words, so it's flowing well. And I'm enjoying the other research I have to do for it a ton too. The story has a very gentle D/s vibe to it, so that requires research. Nothing too wild, but just a tiny bit of edge. ;)
I've continued to clean up the second book in The Destined Ones Series, and I've decided to change the title from Destiny Renewed to Destiny Redeemed. Thanks to one of my beta readers for her great suggestions. I feel the title works better for the theme of the book, which is the redemption of Amon Kalins from the real sonofabitch he is in Stolen Destiny to the man he becomes in his story.
The third book in the series, Broken Destiny, may be in for a name change too. Unlike its predecessor's title, this book's title was never something I was quite sure about. I'm thinking Destiny Unbound instead.
Edits on Stolen Destiny haven't begun yet, but if fate has the sense of humor I think it does, they should be rolling in any moment since today I receive the rest of my students' semester projects after gathering 15 yesterday.
I continue to blog and promote, which I have to say is quite time consuming. But sometimes it's incredibly rewarding. I held a giveaway over at the TRS Staying Home Party last week and I contacted the winner this morning. She wrote back to tell me that it was her birthday and she was feeling a little down (as can happen with birthdays), but winning the giveaway made her day. And that made mine. Thank you, Theresa!
Check out everyone else involved in ROW 80 here. I hope everyone is having a great week, and may you have someone out of the blue make your day too!
