National Novel Writing Month has begun, and my goal is to finish Crescent Moon Crossing by December 1st! Writing 2,000 every day in November.
Week 2 update - I'm averaging 1200-1300 words a day. Underachievement by NaNo standards, but super productive for this writer.
Crossed the 45,000-word mark on the novel, through the mid-book crisis and into the clue-unraveling, murder-solving second half.
If you'd like to follow me and cheer, my NaNo name is SINAZ ( Sandy in AZ). I'll give you a new word count update at the end of Week 3 after Thanksgiving weekend.
Hope you have a happy turkey day with your family and friends.
Cross your fingers for a new book at the first of the year....
Song of the Ancients
What would you die for?
Samantha Danroe doesn't believe in magic. Her ex-husband cured her of happily-ever-after when he cheated on her three days after saying I-do.
She doesn't believe in ghosts. Until her mother's ghost rises from a Halloween bonfire with a warning of death from beyond the grave.
And she certainly doesn't believe in witchcraft. Until she becomes the prey in an ancient war waged between good and evil. A war whose rules she must scramble to learn to stay alive.
In need of protection, Samantha turns to the mysterious stranger who visits her shop. Nicholas Orenda is a sixth-generation witch on the trail of a creature who is systematically killing off his family. According to his family's prophecy, three will be sacrificed to the dark. His mother and grandmother are already dead, and Nicholas doesn't have time to play by the rules.
Samantha finds herself in the center of a deadly hunt for a mysterious foe. Can she find the strength to defeat a supernatural killer and prevent the third sacrifice? Or will she be the catalyst that opens the gates to the Underworld?
Song of the Ancients is the debut book in the Ancient Magic series.
Readers interested in witchcraft, shamanism--or just the dark side of the supernatural world around us--will enjoy this paranormal suspense, written by a real-life Wiccan High Priestess. Look for information on the next book in the Ancient Magic series in January 2018.
