Camp NaNoWriMo 2018

Camp-2018-Writer-Twitter-Header

I did actually win NaNoWriMo last November, I’m just slack-fingered when it comes to telling you about it. I finished at 76,009 words, but it’s been pruned back since then because I got all organic and wrote a heap of trash. It’s about a bunch of Vegas runaways who steal a sentient campervan and a three-legged dog. There are vampires, angels, ethereal beings, seers, demons and lots of queerness. I’m going to be working on it for April Camp, along with two other projects.

The first of these is book four of the not*the*same*river series, which follows Violet, a young person of complicated heritage, as she negotiates her way out of the hands of a deranged demon bishop. A friend is fatally injured by the weapon that was handed over as ransom for Violet’s safe return, so Violet has to face her captor once again to get the triblade back and save her friend. She faces werewolves, vaewolves, an army of clones, the stinking, hypnotising Devi Kappa and the paralysing Kernyx.

The other project is a New Adult LGBT+ novel about a mentor who works at the social services branch of Cascade (an un/holy task force) which prepares new vampires for life beyond the grave, and her new client who likes breaking rules almost as much as she does. Ignoring protocol, they set out to solve each other’s murders.

My overall target is 30,000 words.

Good luck and happy writing to anyone else doing April Camp this year.
