It's July 17th and we are a little over 2 weeks into Camp Nano! July is over halfway over, and how am I doing?
I am slowly but surely catching up to where I need to be. I've had some really high highs, with one day ending with 2.7k+ words, and low lows, where I ended one day with a paltry 706 words for the day. But either way, I've kept on and ended up at 23,653!
Not too bad. I'm slowly chipping away at the deficit and I am hoping to be back on track to win Camp next week.
So, I guess you are wondering where my time went this week...
Well, when I wasn't writing, I was working on a new story that's hit Kindle Vella this week!
If you're new here, 11 Rules for Dating my Mortal Enemy has been a side project that I have been working on for a few months now. I originally intended for it to be a trilogy of magical novels, something outside of the world I am building in Thistlewood. But when I heard about Kindle Vella, the brand new program for serials, I figured that 11 Rules would be a GREAT starter story! I love serials and have always wanted to toy around with one, and now I have my chance.
You can find my story here.
New chapters/episodes will hit every Friday, but you can read the first three episodes for free right now!
Wanna know what 11 Rules is about?
The story is about a princess named Lailah who is from a magical town called Soland, a town that is always at odds with Veilside, its magical brethren to the south. When the good people of Soland hear about a coming eclipse, the Kings of both cities agree to a magical marriage between Lailah and the prince of Veilside, a young man named Mikhal. This marriage will solidify a peace treaty between the cities and usher in a new era of unity.
The only problem is... Lailah hated Mikhal! Loathes! Despises! He's not too fond of her, either, if he was to be honest.
The pair have to work together to make this bond work, or they risk all out war breaking out between their beloved towns.
So, while I've been lagging behind in Camp Nanowrimo, it was for a very good cause! I am excited about where Kindle Vella could take readers and authors, and with Lailah and Mikhal's journey just beginning, a whole new world awaits us all!
And now, we can get back to the writing!
With week 3 beginning, I am ready to set my nose to the grindstone and get this story back on track!
Just me, a paranormal romance author with big dreams and even bigger crushes!
