How’s Camp NaNo going for you?
As the end of the first week of July Camp NaNoWriMo nears, I am perplexed. I’m not sure if I should be…
Over-the-moon ecstatic, planning a party and inviting everyone I’ve ever met, or
… because I have not encountered one problem… yet.
Words flow each time I open the WIP.
Characters are cooperating and not staging coups of silence.
My word count surpassed 12K this morning.
Looks around, confused.
What is going on?
It’s not that I want problems but every writer expects them. I know a couple who even add meltdown to their publishing timeline.
No matter how excited, geeked, amped, psyched, or pumped a writer gets about their latest project, the negative stalkers are unavoidable.
The icy fingers of You Can’t Do This tickle the back of your neck.
The dark cloud of No One Wants to Read Anything You Write looms above you……

“Kissed by Shadows (Kissed by Shadows Series, Book 1)”
Author: Lola St Vil
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Fantasy
Release Date: July 5, 2017
*This is a must read for fans of A Shade of Vampire, Twilight and The Mortal Instruments.*
Meet Atlas Morgan; the hero who just found the villain of her dreams…
A ruthless, demonic army stands ready to attack; to bathe in the blood of all mankind. The only thing that has protected us from them is a mystical river which will run dry by midnight of the winter solace.
The paranormal community— referred to as Shadows—has been given seven chances to complete a quest that will replenish the river. They have failed six times. So, for the seventh and final time, the Shadows look to an unlikely source–seventeen-year-old human girl–Atlas Morgan.
Atlas has just lost the only person in the world that ever truly loved her—her mother. Though she is drowning in grief and sorrow, when she learns she is the chosen one, she gathers up the courage to agree to the quest. However, Atlas encounters something far more frightening than Werewolves, Vampires and Witches—love. His name is Kane and she’s shocked to learn that, like her, Kane has been chosen too–not to save the world but to end it…

Q: What makes Kiss Me Cowboy special?
Many of us write Military Heroes (or are planning to real soon!) in our western romances. While we guarantee happy endings for our heroes, we know that the men and women who serve our country often aren’t so lucky. Twenty-two veterans kill themselves each day. We wanted to team up with Heroes & Horses to help raise awareness and make a positive impact for our real life heroes.
