Happy World Dracula Day everyone! Today marks the one hundred and twentieth anniversary of the publishing of the novel by Bram Stoker. It is one of the books that peaked my interest in vampires and a classic that I still grab from my bookcase and read when I want to get lost in his world.
Talking of getting lost in the world of vampires, book three in the Resurrection City series is well underway and I’m getting ready to start round two of the dreaded edits. The research for my secret project has finally been completed which means I can start mapping out the first book. All goes to plan it will be out before the end of the year.
Well that’s all for now. So until next time, stay safe and well.
So far editing is going well, though my characters have decided it would be fun to toss some changes my way. Still, no matter how much of my hair they might make me contemplate pulling out, I sill love them.
There is something else going on during this time of isolation and my post title alludes to it. I’ve decided to give my life a reboot. Not in regard to my writing, no that is still progressing nicely and each story I write continues to teach me new things. This is in regard to the other parts of my life. This time has given me an opportunity to look at them and I’ve realized some things have remained stagnant for too long. Change, whether we like it or not is necessary for us to grow and progress. So over the past week that is what I have been doing. It’s small things first, like getting rid of something that connects me to a part of the past I want to forget, but each step forward tells me I’ve made the right decision. And I know that when I’ve finished I will face a blank page on which I can write my own story.
Talking of stories, it’s time to get back to my edits. So until next time,stay strong, stay, healthy, and dream big.
I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe during this difficult time. I’m busy working through the first round of edits for book three in the Resurrection City series, which is part pleasure and part pain, working on the first draft of book four in the Hell Bound Chronicles, and doing research for my new project. Though I’m uber busy (which I love), I am making sure to set by time to read, because in the midst of all the madness I think it’s good to escape from reality for a while. Getting lost in realms where vampires, demons, and others live is in my opinion good for heart, soul, and mind. There are certain authors that are my go to when I want to vanish for a while, one of whom is Kerrelyn Sparks. At the moment I’m reading How to Seduce a Vampire Without Really Trying and loving it.
Talking of vampires, I think it’s time I got back to my ones and their stories before they start complaining, so I will catch you all again soon.
