That was a fun week

Vicky Peterwald: Rebel coverLast week I got 22,000 words into KL – Fearless. I figured to finished it this week. So much for that thought. The Galley Proofs for Unrelenting showed up with a two week deadline, so that went to the head of the line. As of Monday, I’m 2/3 of the way done. Well, at least I have the cover of Vicky’s next book, Rebel to share with you

Not again

Vicky Peterwald: Rebel coverOkay, I put in 27,000 words in the last 7 days, 6000 today, and I finish the first draft of KL – Fearless. I’m feeling good until I check my e-mails and there are 700 in the 4 days I’ve been busy writing. Oh, and one is from Ace with the copy edits attached for VP – Rebel!

I’m taking a couple of days off and then I’ll tackle the copy edits. There’s a few TV shows Ellen’s saving for me.

Vicky Peterwald: Survivor discussion

Viicky Peterwald Survivor cover

Vicky still has her head on, if not on all that straight. Unwilling to let her step-mom give her a hatchet job, she finds herself waltzing her way backwards toward the revolution she doesn’t want to start. Then again, how many people want to follow a Peterwald into rebelling against a Peterwald?

Kris Longknife Relentless turned in

Relentless was turned in to Ace on time. It will be the October 2015 book. It is one whale of a book. All kinds of challenges for Kris including a whole batch of battles, both spoilers and the big event you’ve been expecting as well as civil and personal. Boy is there a personal challenge for our Kris. More about it as October 2015 gets close. Now on to finishing Vicky Peterwald – Rebel. Boy is that gal growing up. It’s either grow up or die.

Vicky Peterwald – Survivor is in the works

Survivor has been accepted.  We’ve discussed the cover, likely Vicky will be wearing something like the Dinner Dress Uniform from Target.  They’ve also already got the inside cover blurbs done.

I’m now concentrating on getting Kris Longknife Relentless ready for delivery in October. My second reader returned it today and didn’t see any rough spots from where I cut out 20,000 words. I’ve saved at least two chapters and I’ll post them on this web site next year after it comes out for you to get some extra story.

Both books for next year are moving along fine.10

Books are coming at you.

The galley proofs KL Tenacious are done and the book is available for early order in October. Last week I turned in the rewrite for Vicky Peterwald – Survivor. Now I’m doing an edit for next years Kris Longknife – Relentless. Boy does Kris have a lot of problems to juggle!

What do you think of Vicky?

I’ve got a lot of comments about Vicky. For someone who just kind of walked into Resolute as an echo of “There is another one. He has a sister,” she’s developed in a lot of ways, most not so good. But her time with Kris has opened her eyes a bit and what with her stepmommy dearest out to kill her, Vicky has to change or die. What do you think so far?
