The 2YN Book is out!
2YN: The Two-Year Novel Course–Year One,
THE BOOK IS DONE! It's up for sale! I don't have to think about it any more!
Well, not until I start pulling together everything for Book 2, but that's going to be July at the earliest. I want a little time to recover and bask in the joy of having this beast done.
Jean is offering a BookPack giveaway: A copy of Holly Lisle's Talyn, a copy of Lynn Viehl’s Dark Need, a book of the reader’s choice by Tamara Siler Jones, a download copy of my book, Muse. Go take a look. So far, people have really enjoyed Muse. (grin)
The first of my two main projects right now is something I've discussed with Chris Baty, originator of NaNoWriMo -- a small (25,000 to 30,000 words) give-away book on tackling NaNo. It's mostly going to be things I've written before so this isn't a big deal.
The other is Touched By the Wild, the fantasy novel that I'm going to put on line one chapter a week.
Yes, really. I'm going to burn my first publication rights and offer something for free to read. Why not? It's not as though I don't have more stories than I can sell anyway. I want to do this as an experiment to see if I can draw readers. I shouldn't have any trouble putting the chapters together unless I get hit by some big project that takes over my life. I'm working on chapter 1 now, and hope to have a few of them lined up before July, when I will start this.
I think it's going to be fun!
