It’s October 3 and that means the NaNoWriMo site has been rebooted, and it’s waiting for you to announce your NaNo novel! So here I am announcing mine.
During November this year, I’m going to write a novella with the temporary title Greed, and here’s my temporary book cover, which I made myself and ended up really liking. I hope you like it too!
I know, I know, my name needs to be bigger, but that will all come with refinement. There will also be a logo on the bottom right or left to indicate that this book is part of the Happy Endings Resort series. I’m aiming for 20-30k words, and the book already has a publication date of February 2017, so I really have to finish it during NaNoWriMo. The stakes are high!
Here’s a little excerpt from the book:
She drank from the ornamental fountain and her skin felt immediately better, rejuvenated. The fountain’s water wasn’t meant to drink, of course, but at this point it didn’t make a difference. Toxins, bacteria – it didn’t matter anymore.
The statue of Mary in the center of the fountain looked down at her.
Holy Mother, what must you think of me? Am I abhorrent? You could stop me if I am, couldn’t you? Isn’t it my children who are the abhorrent ones? Something allows me to do this, to be here again. I’ve forgotten the afterlife, so I don’t know if it’s your Son or His enemy who allows it. I am here either way.
She bent down and drank the fountain dry.
If you’re doing NaNoWriMo this year, add me as your writing buddy so we can support and encourage each other!
