Regarding the novellas…

I mentioned awhile back I was working on developing a couple of novellas potentially for FB. I’ve been working the most on the Valkyrie idea, but I’ve been beating my head into a brick wall on it the past week or so. I think … it needs more simmering time. There’s something “off” and I’m not quite sure what.

However, the main problem I had with the second one — a follow-up of sorts to Waking the Shadows — just clicked the other night. I wanted to write when Arielle and Jackson first met and continue later, but I wasn’t sure how to do it… but I figured out an external plot that I think will mesh nicely with it.

So, I talked to Faith about it. For some reason, I don’t think outlining is the best way to go with this. I’m going to write the novella — which I think should end up around 30kish — and then submit it. 🙂

I think it’ll also be easier to switch between this WIP and Stronger, as they’re both in the same setting. Anyway, I finished the first chapter at 2510. A short snippet:

Reynolds nodded curtly, then his face softened. “You’re the best we’ve got, Ari. We’re stuffed to the gills with psychics and hearthwitches, but you’re the only one with enough power to take down a vampire.”

Yeah. A vampire. One shouldn’t be a problem, even if it’s a sanguine. But if it’s a whole coven, I’m going to be screwed like a sorority girl doped up on Rophynol. With the entire football team. Yeah. So not looking forward to this.

  1. I just got done reading your book. Yeah, I really need to make time to read more! I liked it. Very sexy and funny. It threw me for a loop, though, because my halloween book has a witch heroine named Arianna, and a vampire named Jake. Plus there’s a sacrafice theme, lol. So we think alike!

    Congrats again on the sequel/prequel? I never know the difference!

  2. Thanks! 🙂

    As for se/prequel… technically, it’s both. It starts when they meet, but it’s going to be broken into two parts, the second taking place after they’ve gotten together. (It’ll be tricky to pull off, but I think I can do it. :))
