my other projects

31 Dec

I’ve pretty much talked exclusively about the Vengeance Is Mine trilogy on this blog, ever since I started it, and I thought it would be good to let all of you know a little bit about my other writing projects.  I have thousands of ideas, of course, but only three of them (other than VIM) have really captured my interest and become full-blown projects.  All of these are on hold right now, since I’m not the kind of writer who can channel their energy into more than one writing project at a time.  However, each one of them is dear to my heart, so I felt they deserved a post of their own.

{Legends Of Anthorn Trilogy}


a medieval trilogy set in a fictitious country. two women – one a princess, the other a noblewoman and their fight for love and life itself.

The first book in this trilogy (which I still haven’t found a name for) was the first novel I ever wrote and as such, it will always have special place in my memory.  Reading it now, I fully understand the meaning of what I’ve read in so many books on writing – “Your first novel will be terrible, at least to some extent, because it’s the novel you learn to write with”.  It will need major editing if I ever go back to it (which, at this point in time doesn’t look likely) and I haven’t even started the next book, but I still want to return to the series some day.  I do love the characters, and I believe the story holds some merit.  I pull out the first book’s Word document ever so often and read bits of it.  When I do return to it, I’m definitely editing book 1 before I go on, or else there will be major continuity issues.  And that’s never good.
{Celtic Fire}

a fiery irish princess, twins, death, destruction, betrayal, /two/ heroes, and a secret that can solve – or destroy – everything.

I haven’t started writing this book (mostly because of VIM) but the idea has completely captured me.  It was originally going to have time travel and dystopia in it, but now I think I’m going to make it be ancient Celtic all the way throughout.  It’ll mean a lot of research but since Scotland and Ireland are two of my biggest passions (and, by the way, I looked it up and the whole Celtic thing belongs to both countries, in a way) that probably won’t come under the category of work at all.  Right now I don’t really have a plot, or even characters, just a lot of elements thrown together that I’m hoping will bring a plot to mind when I get serious about this.  I do know that it’s going to have twin girls in it, and their names are Eithne and Cawthra.  That’s all I know.  I’ll probably do a Q&A with myself at some point to figure out everything I need to know.
{Our Story, Our Year}


we’ve all fallen in love with literary characters. but what if the character fell in love with you?

This is a collaboration project (with Sierra Bailey) and though many things inspired it, the two biggest were a) a post that was going around tumblr/Pinterest saying ‘someone should write a post where the main character falls in love with the reader’ and b) our love of collaborating together on projects.  We’re writing it in diary format, second person, with an entry for each day of the year, but we’ve kept many details vague so that the reader really feels as though they’re ‘living’ in the book.  OSOY is written for a girl’s perspective, but we’re also considering doing one for boys as well.  I smile every time I think of this project.  We’ve not been writing anything lately, because we’re both working on big projects right now, but it always stays in the back of my mind.  Hopefully, we can get to it sooner rather than later.
