Shhh – We Be Hunting Words Here…

There is a reason I am so quiet right now, but it’s a really good reason.

I’m neck deep in “The String Weavers” series. The project of writing all the first drafts continue. The series is so complicated that I couldn’t release any other books in the series until ALL of the first drafts are written.

In January, book 3 was written. In February and March came book 4.

At the start of July, I made book 5 the focus of July Novel Writing Month, and managed to finish it in 14 days (winning at 50,000 words on day 7 as the first winner for the event). I’m really happy how the first draft came out, too.

Now I’m halfway through book 6, and so far this one is looking to be longer than the rest. I’ve said that about the last two, and those came out between 85-95k, so we’ll see how this one goes.

And the rest of the series? Well, it’s a 7 book series, so that leaves one more to go after this one. If all goes well it will be finished by the end of August. That’s the goal, anyway.

So, there you have it. It might sound like I’m quiet, but that’s only because you can’t hear the constant pecking at the keyboard!

Shhh - We Be Hunting Words Here...

The String Weavers (The String Weavers – Book 1)

Kelsey Hale thinks she’s just a typical mixed-up teenager. Everyone feels that way, her teachers assure her. Yet, strange things happen to her, like food disappearing before she can eat it and hearing music no one else hears.

Then a giant flaming bird drops an alien at her feet. Well, good grief, how can you ignore something like that?

Abducted from Earth, the only planet she’s ever known, Kelsey finds herself thrust into the middle of a deadly conflict among alien worlds and parallel universe. She must not only survive herself, but also find a way to rescue her father from a dangerous group with unknown motives.

In the process, she’s confronted by a hidden secret about herself which will shake the very foundation of who and what she thought she was.

And connecting it all are the mysterious Weavers.

A 97,100 word, 389 page (approximate), science fiction novel.
