I'm so excited! :)
I have finally made the official Facebook Page for the Unbound Series! It's so exciting, I can't wait to play . . . no. Edit first, play later. Right? That's what I should do. :) In all fairness, I did get through four whole pages today (at work). I'm hoping to at least finish chapter seventeen after Calli goes to bed. Unfortunately, I have a dream that I had last night which won't get out of my head, and that's never a good thing - or maybe it is, considering Unbound and Twisted Fate began that way . . . Okay, back on topic here. Unbound has a Facebook page. It isn't much more than a picture and a description at this point, but I will work very hard to increase its appeal very soon. If you would like to visit, the link is on my contact page, but just in case you don't want to click away - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Unbound-Series/529972707034980?
I'm so excited! :)
So I've managed to get through editing to the end of chapter sixteen and, with exception to the opening paragraphs, it remains unchanged. A lot of excess has been cut but I love it :) All completed chapters are uploaded to Wattpad as my progress continues, so if you feel like taking a gander (and making me smile), go take a look. Read, enjoy, and be happy knowing that your support matters.
Okay, so I know I was told not to touch Forsaken (plot and content), but I couldn't help it. the beginning wasn't working! It originally started with a prologue, which I nixed and incorporated into the story because, well, I hate prologues. So do most readers and agents/publishers. Then it opened with a dream sequence, which, let's face it, has been done. It was unique, though, I promise (still the opening in the link to the story) :)
Anyway, I have rewritten the start again for what I hope to be the last time. I will be reading through the rest during editing while ignoring the beginning chapter until all of that is done. After all, I have to finish rewriting the end, which has now become the beginning of Book Two: Forgotten. I hope to post the completed edit this week for anyone waiting to read it. For now, if you would like to see the new opening, look under the 'Novels' section under the Unbound tab (top right), and I have posted an excerpt.
This doesn't really belong here, but I am so excited to have learnt how to make fire text! I need practice, obviously, but I am going to use it for the covers for sure. At least for Forsaken, while I plan to search for water effects for Forgotten. I can't explain why without giving the story away, but it's awesome news (to me). Thank you K.C. for pointing me in the direction of those tutorials :)
Officially finished writing Fate's Demand (Book 3 of Twisted Fate Series)! This means I will be tackling the editing of the first Unbound novel, Forsaken, soon.
This is exciting. Forsaken is the first novel I ever wrote, and like my one (and only) child, it's become my baby. I'm so happy to have learned as much as I have during the first novel of Twisted Fate, and I know there is so much more to learn . . . I'm up to the challenge, though. Since I have a surplus of vacation days owed to me while my daughter has a whole week off school, as well as the *beeping* Saskatchewan weather, I have taken all of next week off :)
Who's ready for Noreena Fallyn?
