I haven’t got a lot of writing done this week. I have been working on various promotional things for Pill Hill and neglecting my writing, but I have offered all of the books on our overstock shelf to reviewers or as giveaways on blogs. Still waiting to hear back from a bunch of them but it is done. To give you an idea I had 60 books when I started and now there are 25.
Work on a History of Blood ran into a little snag and I need a few hours so that I can really dig my teeth in. I need to rewrite the last chapter, because well, it doesn’t make any sense. I started the chapter wanted the main vampire character to run into werewolves and then a werewolf/vampire blood feud would ensue. But then I got bored, and if I am bored writing it then people will be bored reading it. The werewolf/vampire thing is just too overdone. I ended up having the vampire have a blood feud with a tribe that has really big wolves as pets, and it is just kind of weird.
I hate to go back and rewrite before a manuscript is done, but I have to do it this time. Blood Plague is coming along nicely, but I need to come up with a better title. The plague is what sets the story in motion but it isn’t what the story is about. The story is about a group of survivors who get pulled into the war of succession that the death of the king has caused. Maybe it should be The Blood Plague War, or something like that.
So I have my weekend planned, well at least the writing part. The not writing part will consist of helping to paint my father in laws house and a trip to the casino(we got some coupons for free play in the mail!)
I also wanted to mention that the first giveaway I have scheduled with a blogger is up and going over at The Happy Booker. She is giving away to prize packs, one has a hard cover of Love Kills: My Bloody Valentine and the other has a soft cover. If you are interested all you have to do is head over to her blog and follow it to be entered.
