We’re about half-way through National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo, and every year there are more and more participants and more and more hype until you can’t seem to escape people talking about NaNoWriMo. At least, not if you’re a writer.
Personally, I don’t participate. Never have, and, to be frank, probably never will.
One piece of advice directed towards aspiring writers that drives me nuts is; “write every day.” If you’re a writer who follows other writers, you can’t escape Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest without seeing those lovely inspirational quotes and memes that are constantly touting this same sentiment over and over again. I know a lot of people are going to disagree with me on this, but this is why I think “write every day” is bullshit.
There is a very steep learning curve for self-publishing, but after months of trial and error, at long last, Torn Apart is now officially available in paperback! There is no greater joy for a writer than being able to hold a physical copy of your book in your hands.
At long last, here is the big reveal! The cover for book 2 of the Convergence Series – “Blood Bound.”
Blood Bound (Book 2 of the Convergence Series)
After many years of hardship and separation, Halea has become Varg’s mate, and life should be perfect, but it isn’t. She can’t escape the feeling that the Chaos Dimension will someday return, and with Lord Anshar gone, who will protect them? Though no longer a priestess, she cannot ignore the call of the goddess that is warning her of the storm ahead. When the tears return, she soon discovers that Lord Anshar is alive, but he is not the same; the Chaos has driven him mad and now he seeks to kill every priestess and claim Halea for his own. Varg was not able to defeat the dragon therian the last time they battled, but now he must find a way to master his sword, the Fang, or risk losing Halea forever. Varg’s worst nightmare may become a reality when the Swordmaster Crow foretells of Halea’s death. Together they must find a way to defeat the Dragon Lord before he summons another convergence that will bring an end to their world.
