Mercurial Dreams & Dark Legacies Update

Well, the cover for Mercurial Dreams is being finalized.  Another great cover from Kelly Nichols with EZ Book Covers.  She does such a great job capturing what I want.  The writing is also well on its way.  I got my 3000 words yesterday and am roughly 3/4 of the way done.  Monday Night Football and the St. Louis Cardinals game helped last night.  I write really well to sports.

Since the 3rd in the series is set in the desert, someone has had a run-in with a cactus.  It needed to happen (if it had been a Nadine Daniels novella, it would have been several cacti and they probably would have had serious side-effects).  I also love writing about the desert, it gives me a chance to write descriptions that I wouldn’t normally get the chance to write.

I promise Dark Legacies (Book 4 in the Strachan series) is underway.  I expect it to be ready in February 2014.  I know, that’s a long time to wait, but I can only write so fast and I felt the need to get Mercurial Dreams out of the way first.  If I hadn’t, I would have been very distracted by the plot that was unfolding in my head.

The cover for Dark Legacies is finished.

And when I get back from NYC, I’m ordering swag items.  I’m open to suggestions on swag items.  I know I’m making Elysium Dreams bookmarks, but what else do you guys want?

PS:  This is my writing buddy for the week.  He is less than an inch tall, but he seems to have mighty potent penning powers.  We wrote 6,000 words together yesterday, despite massive doses of migraine medicine!Writing Buddy
