Writing Month Results

Our writing month is over. So, how did you do? I got through the line edits on a manuscript, wrote about 30,000 words of a book and revised a couple of proposals a couple of times. I guess I was kind of scattered in a lot of directions. Oh yeah, and I proofed galleys on a book.

If you met the goal you established at the beginning of the month, send me an e-mail at or leave a comment letting me know what you accomplished. I have four copies of the bound galleys for Damsel Under Stress that I will be drawing for from among those people. I'll see if I can scare up some other prizes, depending on how many people have earned them.

Stay tuned to learn about another way to win advance copies. In April I'll be announcing what you can do to win an early copy of book 4, and it doesn't require writing 50,000 words. It does, however, involve helping promote Damsel. Speaking of which, the release date is now three months away.

Now I have to get ready for class, so I'll leave you with this week's Out of the Blogosphere book, Night Rising, by Chris Marie Green.

When stunt woman Dawn Madison's PI father vanishes while investigating the bizarre sighting—caught on film—of a supposedly long-dead child star, she comes home to Tinseltown to join the search for him. Working with his colleagues—a psychic short in stature but big in dreams, a beautiful Latina techno-geek, and the P. I. firm’s never-seen boss—she discovers an underground society made up of creatures she thought existed only on screen. They are devious. They are deadly. And some of them are dangerously attractive…
