“The Swans of War” Cover

Currently “Living in Interesting Times” is taking a vacation with my beta readers; and while it does, I’m back to working on “The Swans of War”, the sequel to my urban fantasy “The Lands That Lie Between”.

Over the weekend, I’d started looking for a good picture for the cover, and the search was taking more than a little time. I found pictures of swans that were

  • peaceful
  • beautiful
  • serene
  • loving
  • pretty much everything but war like

Now swans, as you may or may not know, are beautiful birds, but they are also big and aggressive. An angry swan can break a man’s arm with the swing of its wing; and, in my novel, these are Germanic swan shape shifters, who are martial barbarian nomads with heavy accents, anger management issues and impulse control problems.

A pretty swan meant for the front of a wedding invitation wouldn’t do.

So I had searched through page after page of “pretty but not the right” swans on Fotolia, Good Bye Tol Eressea, Hello Eldamara site where you can purchase the rights to photos and illustrations, and I’d just about given up..

and then I found it.

Tentatively, here’s the picture for the cover of the Swans of War

and I’m doing the happy writer- publisher dance.

Camp July 2017 Has Come and Gone…

…. did you write something?hands with laptop typing in night

So what are you going to do with it?

You can

  • keep going and finish your rough draft
  • finish the section you’re on
  • put it aside and let it rest
  • start editing it
  • polish up a section and send in a query to a magazine or a publisher
  • wait and add 50 K more next Nano

There’s a lot of things you can do with the writing that you did at camp. The important thing to remember is that, whether you did 50k or 500, you’ve still done more than most of the people around you ever dreamt of

So be proud of what you did at camp. It’s amazing- and it can be the start of something bigger…

Evil Never Sleeps

“Last November, the Forces of Darkness were thoroughly thwarted and the power remained in the hands Celtic Knotwork 007of the Seelie Court,

But Evil never sleeps.

Now, a princess is missing, illness fills the Seelie domain, dark figures behind the scenes seek to unseat the new rulers and take power for themselves, an enchanted race prepares for war,

And the Fate of their world and ours rests once more in the hands of a woman and her wisecracking cat…”

And I’m back to work on the Swans of War…

Voice per Rosoff (Inspiration)

“Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are. The job of your Burning candlevoice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents of your mind, your heart, your soul.”
