July Camp NaNoWriMo 2017

on Wednesday, June 28, 2017
    I can't believe how fast June has flown by. And I haven't accomplished anything writing-wise as I am currently counting down the days until Son of Mine is born. Between the major pregnancy brain and the major nesting, I haven't been able to focus on anything writing related. It's been really discouraging. So, it's a good thing that it's almost July.

    That's right, it's time for round 2 of Camp NaNoWriMo! The only problem? Son of Mine is due July 13th. Yeah, so I really only get half of the month to actually work on my writing. But, I've got a plan.
    As you know, another JL anthology was recently released, and we've already got plans for two more in the future. So rather than working on editing Powerful, this time I'm going to write the first draft of my next short story. Word goal is 7,000-7,500 words. Not too lofty of a goal this time, but that's why I like Camp NaNo more than regular NaNo.

Blog World Tour- H. S. Cook!

on Monday, June 5, 2017
    This is the last month of the Blog World Tour! How sad! But, we get to end on a good note! Let's welcome H. S. Cook!

Working in a world of logic and reason, while dreaming of one filled with magic, H.S. Cook lives between her scientific research and her fantasy writings. A molecular biologist by day, she finds ways to inject the magic of her worlds into daily life, making time to write. She is currently working on an epic fantasy series: The Blood King Chronicles.
Q: What are you writing at the moment?

A: My main project is The Blood Within – a Blood King Chronicles novel. It is a high/epic fantasy following a dragon and a prince as they discover the part they will play in the battle for mankind’s survival.

Q: How are you planning publishing this book and why?

A: I am hoping to publish traditionally – self-publishing has too many limitations in the hardback/paperback market at the moment – especially in the UK. While ebooks are great, they are not my main target. There is nothing like losing yourself in a book and e-readers act to distant you from the story.

Q: Tell me something about your world not addressed directly in the book.

A: Elves and dragons are the only two immortal races of the known world, but for very different reasons. Blade and poison would take either race, but they do not die of age. The golden forest of Eihäldär will explain the fate of the elves in a later instalment. However, dragons are glossed over.Dragons are not born. They cannot reproduce. An egg forms from an area saturated in magic, and the dragon within will live until the end of time without external intervention.
