Pirate Novella, Revenge of the Siren Song

That time is almost here … AT LAST!!!!  I am down to the last few scribbles on the manuscript and then it’s off to a few key people.  I have a retailer, two published authors, and a member of my target audience all set to read it and let me know what needs to be tweeked.  My plan is to have the work published in early November.

So, to celebrate, I’m sharing a preview of the book cover with you.

I hope you are as excited as I am for the upcoming release.  More to come as the publishing day gets closer.


Flash Fiction Round One Up and Running!

My first writing assignment from NYCMidnight’s Flash Fiction Challenge is a romance set in a surf shop with at least a mention of a pot of boiling water.  At least I’m starting off in my comfort zone.  But then again, not sure how that will stretch me as a writer.  Lots of ideas are flowing.  I’ll keep you posted on how it’s going.

For you Twitter addicts, check my feed.  There’s lots of conversation going on.

Flash Fiction Challenge

Let me tell you, I LOVE a good challenge.  I’m really excited to take this one on.  Several months ago I spotted a Facebook Ad for the Flash Fiction Challenge by NYCMidnight.com.  It looked like a great way to stretch myself and have some fun.

Well Saturday is the big day.  The first challenge will be issued at Midnight, Zero Hour, Saturday morning.  I am so jazzed to give this a go!

The idea is to write something short, quick, and hopefully dead-on brilliant.  All of the participating writers will have 2 days to complete a 1,000 word story based on an assigned genre, location, and object.  I can tell you right now that the 1,000 word maximum will be the hardest part of the challenge for me.

Check back with me over the weekend and I’ll share with you what I came up with for the first challenge.
