I finally got to press my sequel to my urban metaphysical novel Coffee with Thunderbolts. I wrote A Star Rose in Cerami during the 2011 NaNoWriMo. The characters from my first book are back and off to the wilds of Sicily to fix a “tiny” metaphysical problem that occurred after their experience of the Mayan Doomsday of 12/21/12. You can find all of my books on my Author Spotlight on Lulu.
I did write another novel for the 2012 NaNoWriMo. It is a young adult book, and it is a “disguised” science fiction tale. I will give updates and details as I get closer to a publication date.
Over the summer, I participated in the LitChat Salon, and I had my very short fantasy story, A Feather for the Devil, critiqued. I had so much fun doing this that I hope to take the character in that story and work up a novel at some point in time.
For those of you aspiring (and perspiring) writers out there, I recommend #litchat on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 4 pm to 5 pm EST on Twitter. On Monday nights from 9 pm to 10 pm EST there is also #writersroad. For all of us who travel the indie path, on Tuesday evenings at 9 pm EST there is #indiechat. For SF in particular, check out #scifichat on Fridays from 2 pm to 4 pm EST. You will not only have fun, but you will learn a great deal on the subject of writing and publishing.
