WIP Wednesday

Book: Nether 3
Current Word Count: 42,449
 Draft 1:

Yes, I am actually posting today. =P And do you see that word count up there? Do you know what it means? It means progress my friends, something I've been struggling with too much lately. So I am happy to see it climb. There are another 10k words getting plugged in this week as well. Which means *drum roll*

I will be finished with this draft next week if not earlier!! I've already sent the first half of it out to my beta readers/CP's and I am eagerly awaiting the shredded  bits of paper they return to me. =P I know one of them said they were getting out their flamethrower and chainsaw and those are always good signs, right? Haha.

I've also got the artist working away on the cover and I am in the process of locking down an editor. Sadly mine is booked up, but I have been contacted by some really great free lance editors and having to choose just one is really hard because they all look so great!!

Anyhoo, here is the mu…

WIP Wednesday

Book: Nether 3
Current Word Count: 24,547
Draft 1:

Yep, you saw that word count drop. I did a no no and back tracked with some edits. It was a must. I realized I had something going on that didn't make sense at that moment in time in the book, so I cut the chapter and will be revising and adding it back in later on near the end of the book. I took a 3k word count hit backwards, but I'll survive. My new schedule date to finish is a hard deadline date of April 25th. Then it goes out for beta's and the editor. Then it's edits all during May with a release date in the end of June (possibly mid June). They happen that fast. Sometimes. If you think about it though, I haven't been moving very fast. The first draft which normally I write NaNo style takes me normally thirty days. Not this time around. I'm doing my best to write the first draft well so it doesn't go up to three and four drafts.

Here are my musical muses this week:

WIP Wednesday

Book: Nether Book 3.
Current Word Count: 27,600
 Draft: 1

Almost at 30k words. So close!! If I stay on task I should reach 35k this week. I am hoping that happens. You all know I've been struggling with it so keep your fingers crossed for me and send me good writer vibes!!! I really need to have this draft finished by this month. Actually, I want to finish it by April 19th and get it out to beta readers. I plan for publication sometime in June so this really needs to happen.

I also contacted my cover artist and we will be collaborating to start working on the cover this week. That part is so exciting.

Now, on to my music muse:

Shannon LaBrie - Calls Me Home Omg this song! Ava and Devon!!
Your Guardian Angel - Red Jumpsuit Apparatus Is this not Devon or what? Favorite lyric in this song: "Even if saving you sends  me to Heaven" Gives me chills. 
Brooke Annibale - Words In Your Eyes (I had to link this youtube video because blogger isn't finding it. Beautiful song, check…

Blogging Update

I am going to be knocking my blogging down to once or twice a week until I finish this first draft of Nether 3. It's been a harder process then I thought and there are a lot of emotions that go into writing the last book in a series. I will do my best to post on Wednesday for WIP day and Anything Goes Fridays.

I will also update Loki's  blog for him at least once a week.

Sorry guys, but right now I need the extra time to make this book happen. I still love you all and will resume three posts a week and my once a month vlog as soon as this first draft is done. I am hoping to be finished within the next two weeks. It all just depends on how things flow and what life hands me in that time.

I will still be reading all of your blogs, though! Because I love them and they are like my blog crack. =)
