W is for Whoooo Hooo!!

You might not find this very exciting, but I figured out the final issue with Night’s Knights 2, Dusk’s Warriors.

This is such a breakthrough. I have most of the novel written. Just have to sew it up and connect all the little pieces. But I’ve had one mental block that has been causing me trouble, and until that mystery was solved, it was like I couldn’t sew it up!

It’s all about the rules. When you start a novel, sometimes you don’t know what rules or guidelines your supernatural creature or cosmic event will have. You just write it. Then, you have to go back and make sense to it. That’s the hard part!

So here I go, off to start finishing this blasted thing!

Just when you thought it was safe to…

I’ve been so busy recently, I haven’t made many blog posts. It’s hard when writing life, day job life, and personal life suddenly crash together into some kind of giant tidal wave! Run Emz! Run!

I think things might slow down for a little bit now. Here are some projects I’m working on in the next couple weeks:

  • Season 4 finale of Horror Addicts tapes July 4th, airs July 8th.
  • True Love, the 3rd novel in the Sweet Dreams Series launches on Podiobooks.com tomorrow (June 30th).
  • I’m re-reading / editing Sweet Dreams volume 1 for a print version (not many people know about this yet).
  • I am attempting to finish up Night’s Knights 2, Dusk’s Warriors so that I can podcast it at the end of the year.
  • Season 5 of Horror Addicts probably won’t launch till September. I need a break and I think my staff do too.

Some things I won’t be working on in the near future (I don’t think).

  • Those of you looking for the horror romance I promised awhile back might see it later rather than sooner. I’ve decided to try the old dinosaur way with this one… we’ll see if any REAL offers come for it.
  • I know some of you are looking forward to my Northanger Abbey modern re-write and The Vicar’s Daughter which are both very near and dear to my heart, but I just don’t have time for these right now. I haven’t put them away, but they are on the bottom shelf.
  • Sweet Dreams 4? I will be working on this someday. Sweet Dreams 4 was supposed to be One More Try which is done– just needs a little fine tuning, but suddenly in between Sweet Dreams 3, True Love, and One More Try, a mini novelette popped up I’m calling Undecided. I have about half written and haven’t decided if I will write the other half fresh or pull from other books. If fresh, it will probably have more of Derek in it because to me he was always a minor character, but with the rewrites he has become something more. With the print novel of Sweet Dreams, I’m not sure if I will concentrate on getting the 4th one written and recorded first or get 2 & 3 in print format. A little email guidance on this is welcomed. Any Sweet Dreamers wanna give me their wish list?

That’s about all for tonight! 
Now I will log off to continue the Sweet Dreams read. Hopefully will get to the editor July-ish and I am hoping for a November release, just in time for holiday shoppers… after all, it is the ultimate holiday love story.

Talk to you soon,

Dusk’s Warriors– An Update

So you know how I was sure I’d finish Night’s Knights II the beginning of 2010 and have it podcast by summer? Not happening. I was all done… had it sewn all up and then I realized… It was too clean. Too pretty. Too nice and tidy. Forget that! There needs to be a mess and by mess I mean… knock out, drag out, mess everyone up, kick everyone’s butt… scar charries for life kinda fight. Jespa started it. Did you expect anything less?

Tonight’s all about DW. Editing, rewriting, and getting some of these messy chapters sewn up just a little. Not all the way… but so you can see a little stitching and a lot of puss-filled goodness. 🙂
