What to do when writing is hard #amwriting

Sunday Post was conceived by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

*sigh*Sorry. This went live early...again. Anywho, how are you this Sunday?

It's been a good week, but albeit, one in which I ended up doing a lot more work than I thought I had to do. Why? If you follow me on Instagram you've probably seen this already, but I  came home from a walk at the park this weekend thinking, "Oh, I know how to finish that book. 10,000 words should do it!" (which book? You'll have to wait and see, although, there is a tie into one of my series. And yes, I'm also working on the next Antique Magic book. :))

Only to be reminded I hadn't gotten to the heart of said-story, yet. Okay, I officially admit it. I write too much. I did make progress, though I'm not sure how much. Shall we say 25,000-40,000 words to go? Ugh! So what do we do when writing gets stuck? Read, of course.

Yes, I got some reading done, but didn't finish like I'd expected to (No, I take it back. *smacks forehead* I finished the audiobook of Gail Carriger's Prudence. Enjoyed it, if you want to know. :) I may put the next one on my to be read list. I'm listening to the audiobook of Kelley Armstrong's Stolen, now. I pretty much just started it, but so far, so good. :))


And what else I picked up this week:
Vanessa and her Sister by Priya Parmar

*rubs hands* I've been looking forward to this one for a whole now! If I have not mentioned it before. I am a Woolf fan so, I have high hopes for this book.

Of Cinder and Madness (Once Upon a Darkened Night Book 1) by Nicole Zoltack

The Wild Child (The Bride Trilogy Book 1) by Mary Jo Putney (which is free right now)


Duchess (Reign of Prophecy Book 1) Nicolette Andrews

The Golden Key by Cathleen Townsend

The Captain's Bluestocking Mistress: Historical Regency Romance (Dukes of War Book 3)

Five Gold Rings - Sisters of Hex prequel: A reverse harem short story  by Bea Paige

And...I think that's it. Did you make any progress in your projects this week? I hope so. And more next week, too!

Iauthor Prompt, art by Kari Christensen
 
 
Iauthor posted this prompt yesterday. And from that, I came up with this little bit of steampunk flash fic. Just a little something I came up with on the fly. I hope you like it.



"I'm sending that overgrown Roomba back to the manufacturer," the Mechkeeper grumbled. "No matter where I go, it just can't keep from threatening to step on the baby! Who programmed that bloody thing? We're not dust, you know!"

Stop trying to marry me off! #8Sunday #WeWriWa #histrom #steampunk #newrelease

wewriwabutton

So, I know you've seen this earlier. My newest release in steampunk/Victorian romance is live. This is slightly over 8 lines from Vesta's Clockwork Companions, but, I thought I'd share this short excerpt with you today anyway.


 (from Chapter one):

Vesta snorted and took up a brush to pull it through her hair. “Can you see Mrs. Colchester at a barn dance? I’m sure Nottingham parties are different. More like something out of Jane Austen.”

His steps approached the door. “You will be fine.”

She set the brush down, crossed to the door to open it, keeping behind its barrier. “You are the most optimistic man I know.”

With the removal of his coat, she saw, through the thin fabric of his white shirt, the scars on his forearm. The wounds he’d worked hard over the years to overcome and regain most of his strength. “And you are the most pessimistic girl.” Father’s blue eyes and the lines on his light cheeks showed his exhaustion. Even though he was tired, she still thought him handsome, and far too young to be worrying about her future. “Can you really be my daughter?”

“Pretend I’m not, and stop trying to marry me off.”

Her words made him laugh. “If I’m not your father, then why do you act so much like an alchemist like me?”

Her words stopped on her tongue and she remembered the experiment that caused the scars on his arm. “I’m sorry, Father. I just…”

“Don’t like your choices, I understand. We’ve been through harder times.”

“Yes we have.” She hugged him, remembering all the years they’d faced alone since her mother’s death. All he’d done and given up for her. “And all through it, I had an excellent teacher. I’m sure I’ll be ready for whatever tomorrow presents.”

VESTA’S CLOCKWORK COMPANIONS

Genre: Steampunk/Victorian romance.

Synopsis:
When Vesta Bartlett, a wealthy alchemist and inventor, arrives in England to finalize an arranged marriage and help overhaul a family friend’s outdated ironworks, she never expects to find the family so secretive, nor to develop feelings for her fiancĂ©’s younger brother, Henry.

But the growing attraction between Vesta and Henry is just the beginning of their troubles. Things really heat up when they’re drawn into a secret project for Queen Victoria’s military, one that requires Vesta’s knowledge of clockwork and Henry’s iron.

An epidemic has wiped out all the dogs in Britain, and beyond. If the military fail in their effort to restore the species, a clockwork creation may be all that stands in the way of a world without canine companionship.

Are Vesta and Henry up to the challenge?

Length: 335 pages, around 83,000 words

Setting: Britain (London and Nottingham), circa 1887.

It's available at Amazon in kindle and paperback.

To save her life, Rin must destroy Hikaru's. Falling in love with him was never part of the plan.
Rin enters the palace as a spy. If she can gain the prince’s trust, she will break the spell that turned her human. But without a voice, it might be too much of a challenge, even for her.

Will she betray him to his enemies or make the ultimate sacrifice for love?

Small catch up post.


Howdy folks, I hope y'all have been well. I've been quiet, I know, but I've been busily working away behind the scenes here. I've got something coming up for you here real soon, so, stay tuned!

Until then, what have I been up to? Not much. Reading mostly. I've already finished up nearly my reading goal for the year. Yikes! One thing I noticed though was that good reads has no codes to show off your progress outside their *grumble* site. (If the Good Reads people stumble across this, a postable progress code might be a nice addition to the challenges.)  If you're curious, this here's my list of stuff read thus far. :) Well, here's a little screenshot:

 
 
When World Collide by Jolene Dawe
Flash Gold by Lindsay Buroker
A Mother's Love by Jolene Dawe
A Dragon's Destiny by Tina Glasnek
The Serpent's Tooth by Diana L. Paxson
Fireflies by PS Bartlett
Divided Allegiance by Elizabeth Moon
Discovery of Dragons  by Graeme Base
Spinster by Suzanne G. Rogers
Unlaced by Kristina Cook
Prince Priscilla's Fortnight By Elizabeth von Arnim

Almost done with my goal, so I might tweak that count a little before the next half of the year kicks in. So, other than that, not much else. What have you been reading lately? I'm also reading over the first draft of another manuscript, so hopefully you'll see that out the second half of this year sometime. :)
 
Also, look for a real Juli book update coming soon!

Fantasy author Annie Douglass Lima's new release The Nameless Soldier

This morning, I have a guest for you. Ms. Annie Douglass Lima is back with the latest installment in Annals of Alasia, her YA fantasy series. THE NAMELESS SOLDIER releases soon , so I invited her here to share a little about it. Read on and enjoy.



The Nameless Soldier is book 4 in the Annals of Alasia young adult fantasy series. Haven't read all (or any) of the others? That's okay! The books can be read in any order, and each one can stand on its own.

Description:

What do you do when you’re the only survivor?

Nineteen-year-old Tarvic bears the name of a mighty hero from Alasia’s past. However, the young soldier feels anything but heroic when he regains consciousness to find himself the lone survivor of a brutal attack by invaders from the neighboring kingdom. 

Forced to leave his identity behind, Tarvic is thrust into civilian life in the role of protector to three war orphans. When the four of them encounter a mysterious stranger, he must choose between keeping the young girls safe and taking on a mission that could help free his kingdom. Can Tarvic live up to his noble name and find a way to balance his duty and his dreams?


Where to Get a Copy:

Click here to buy the ebook or paperback from Amazon. (The ebook is $2.99 just $0.99 through June 6th!)

Not sure if you'll like the story or not? Take a look at the first chapter and see!



The Nameless Soldier
Chapter One

      
Tarvic woke to the sound of a distant yell, abruptly silenced. He pushed his blankets aside and sat up, puzzled, but heard only the light patter of rain on the canvas. “What was that?”
Drevel, his roommate in the barracks and tentmate out on campaigns like this, stirred and rolled over. “What?”
“I heard something. Someone shouting.”
“It’s probably just another drill.” But Drevel sat up too, shoving his own blankets away, as Tarvic crawled over and untied the tent flap.
A blast of wintry air and raindrops greeted him as he leaned out, peering across the tent-studded hillside. Clouds hid the moon and stars, and on every side the thick dark of the forest leaned in from the edges of the large clearing. But the telltale flickering light of distant torches sent shadows leaping over tents and across the open spaces between them. Why would someone be using torches out here? Any soldier in camp had easy access to lanterns among the supplies.
Something was wrong. Very wrong. Tarvic pulled back into the tent and yanked on his breeches and jacket.
They both heard the next yell, closer this time, and then the unmistakable clash of swords. Both men snatched up their own swords, jamming their feet into their boots and fumbling for shields. From all around them, shouts of alarm erupted as men in their company woke up.
And then the enemy was upon them. Horses exploded through the camp, trampling tents and the soldiers just crawling out of them. Riders leaned low off their mounts’ backs, swinging swords and waving torches.
Halfway out of his tent, Tarvic threw himself flat on his face to avoid a slash that would probably have decapitated him. He scrambled to his feet, only to be knocked off them again by a blow that he barely caught on his shield.
Light, shadows, horses, blades, rain. Chaos raged through the clearing to the sound of crashing metal, pounding hooves, shouts of challenge and desperation. Tarvic regained his feet and fought as best he could from the ground while enemy riders thundered around him. Dodging and ducking, he aimed for the men’s legs and tried to keep out from under their horses’ hooves. With no idea who he was fighting or why, his only goal to stay alive for the next heartbeat, he dodged and darted through the tumult looking for spots where horses and enemy swords weren’t. All around him, men fought and ran and crumpled to lie as limply as the trampled tents.
Slipping and stumbling in the mud, Tarvic felt a surge of satisfaction as his sword met flesh and an enemy yelled in pain. And then the man wheeled his horse and charged back toward him, and Tarvic turned to flee.
He tripped on something soft that groaned. Pain shot through Tarvic’s wrist as he caught his fall, and only a quick roll saved him from being trampled as the man’s horse cantered over him.
Its rider wheeled again, and Tarvic rose to his knees, barely raising his shield in time to protect his face. The force of the blow threw him backward, jarring his already sore wrist.
Another horse leaped over him, and Tarvic cried out in pain as a hoof struck him on the shoulder. He stumbled to his feet, ducking low to present as small a target as possible, and ran through the melee.
He saw fewer people on foot now, more obstacles in the mud. Was it cowardly to flee from a battle you couldn’t win? Nothing in Tarvic’s eight months in the military had prepared him for this. Not counting occasional minor border skirmishes, the kingdom of Alasia hadn’t seen an actual war in six generations. Besides routine patrols, city peacekeeping, and the frequent drills and training, the military’s primary duties involved escorting merchant wagons through robber-frequented stretches of rural highway and keeping an eye on the sections of coastline where seafaring raiders were known to attack. Tarvic had never fought in a battle that involved more than a handful of opponents at a time, and none of those opponents had been anywhere near this organized — or this deadly.
If we escape, we can regroup somewhere safer and — A hard blow to the back knocked him to the ground again as another horse pounded over him. Giving up all pretense of courage, Tarvic scrambled to his feet once more and fled for the edge of the clearing and the relative safety of the trees beyond. I can’t do anything here. They’re going to slaughter us all!
He was practically there when another rider appeared in front of him, leaning low with sword outstretched. Tarvic almost impaled himself on the blade, raising his shield just in time. He fought back frantically as the man slashed, swinging his weapon again and again. I need my horse! Military training had included nothing about how to fight a mounted enemy from the ground. But Lightning was tethered in the row of makeshift stalls on the far side of the camp, probably prancing restlessly under his blanket and wondering why his rider didn’t come to spur him into battle.
Tarvic didn’t even see the blow that almost killed him. His ears barely registered the thudding of more galloping hooves from behind, nearly drowned out by the rain and the sounds of battle. But the world exploded in light and pain as something struck the back of his head harder than anything had ever hit him before.
He lurched forward, feeling his sword drop from limp fingers. Managing two steps before his legs buckled, he was just conscious enough to recognize the urgent need to crawl. Don’t stop. Don’t stop. Don’t stop. Or they’ll kill you out here. That was the only thought left in his mind as he pulled himself toward the concealing shadows behind the line of tree trunks. And then even that faded, giving way to darkness.

Sale correction.

Hi all. I hope you had a good Memorial day weekend. We did, though it was rainy off and on due to Subtropical storm Alberto. (We were thinking of our friends and readers up in the storm's path, however.)

When I say off and on, I mean, outside my door, most of the afternoon was dry with spurts of rain--thankfully! I know it's probably too much to hope the rest of hurricane season is as quiet. Oh, well.

In the midst of all that, I was doing more work on my newsletter list files that needed doing. I'm not done yet, but we're getting there.(If I accidentally unsubscribed you and you'd like to re-subscribe--or if you'd like to subscribe--you can do so here.)

Since the weekend was so busy, I hope you will forgive me that I misread the calendar. The sale on my #histfic historical fantasy novel, Frigga's Lost Army (and my fun faery fantasy novel, Changeling's Crown) doesn't end today, like I tweeted (if you follow me on twitter you will have seen that) but May 31st.

This also goes for the other books in the May Fantasy and Scifi romance authors sale.
Fantasy and Scifi Romance ebook sale

Yes, it is still going on, so do check it out, here, and hopefully, the next one won't  be so hectic that I'll mess up on the dates! :) I hope you find something you like!!
