July Writing Stats and Reckon Progress #amwriting #urbanfantasy

The good news is I made words in July and progress on Reap & Reckon. The bad news is it wasn’t nearly as much as I had hoped.

I signed up for Camp NANOWRIMO with a goal of 30k. I fell far short of that but did make 6,200K new words forward on Reckon. That little jaunt has me at approximately 40% of my end goal (32,137). I never really know how long a story will be, but I’m aiming for around 70-80K.

There’s a lot going on in Reckon and many loose ends to tidy up.

I squeezed in little writing sprints where I could and on the days I was able to write I was very productive.

Today begins a new month and a new opportunity to advance the story. I keep wanting to share a bit of the first chapter but there is a MAJOR spoiler on the very first page! What do you think? Can you handle it? Do you want it?

Make your case in the comments, and I’ll carefully consider your request for a first chapter reveal.

Be careful what you wish for…

Meanwhile, if this is your first visit to my site or you’ve been holding out for some bizarre reason, you can start the series for free today!

Reap & Repent blurb:

They see death. Can they share a life?

Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets. Then she meets Deacon Walker. She can see his ice-blue eyes, his black hair, and his gorgeous face. But this beautiful stranger has no aura.

Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by anything. As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature, she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t afford.

A demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness in his own past even as he fights to save the human souls he’s charged to protect. When he’s taken captive, his first concern is for Ruth. But Ruth just might be able to save herself—and the Reaper she can’t live without—if she can learn to wield her newfound powers.

  1. I think the quality of the words is the most important thing. If the story is good, I wouldn’t worry about it.
