We are quite busy over here at Blue Moon Aurora, LLC! We’ve completed our first draft of West Pacific Supers: Victory at Any Cost, the sequel to Rising Tide. We really rocked on this book; at 47 chapters and just over 144,000 words, it’s a first draft that’s easily comparable in quality to our third draft of Rising Tide. Victory at Any Cost has it all – action, humor, superheroes of course, plus wizards, witches, and even gods. Kirk was channeling a whole lot of awesome in the climatic chapters. Christina Hess, who has done some very beautiful illustrations for our roleplaying book-in-progress, is under contract for the cover illustration for Victory at Any Cost. We’re very excited about this novel and on track for a Spring 2012 release.
Speaking of the roleplaying side of thing, significant progress is being made on the Duet Saga Rules thanks to an enthusiastic core group of volunteers. And in case you missed it, our first two West Pacific Supers serials are now available – for FREE download – on Smashwords. Make sure to check out Blue Star and the Vanghel Invasion and Camille and the Supernovas. If you like what you read, please do write a review, on Smashwords or Amazon. Every one helps get the word out.
As if all this wasn’t enough, both Kirk and I are participating in NaNoWriMo, the write-a-novel-in-a-month event where participants compete to write 50,000 words during the month of November. That’s 1,667 words a day, but who’s counting… Kirk and I have both chosen ideas that we can’t quite get the other one of us on board to write. We’re both hoping that our stellar writing this month will sell our idea to each other and together we can turn these two ideas into two marketable novels. So far, on day 3, we’re both on track, with over 6,000 words written by each of us on our respective books (League of Peace: the Lost Armada for Kirk and Last Poet of Mars for me). It’s definitely a challenge to keep the momentum up when you’re writing all by yourself, but it’s a whole lot of fun as well.
Thanks for reading,
