Taking some time out to say hi

With everything going on in my life I will say that I am much surprised that I got a wee bit of work going on.  I didn’t go to the nearest restaurant like a blogger friend/author suggested and find a napkin to write on, but I did open up my box and grab my notebooks. There have been a lot of things I have been meaning to do regarding book two.  There has been killing, of course, although it wasn’t in one of my fits of madness like I seemed to think.  That was actually done beforehand and it is a very telling situation.  A name for the book is still circling my head and when there are some more readers to Rise of a Queen (you can get it here for ebook and paperback, here, here, here, or here) I would LOVE some input in my email box so as not to give any SPOILERS 😀 Oh do I love River Song.  Oh okay off of Doctor Who, I can’t help it.  I have been signing all my books with my sonic screwdriver pen I love my readers oh so much.

ImageI am trying my hardest to get history/mythology correct with it’s timeline and place it is taking a bit longer than I had expected but in all honesty would you rather a book with something that was completely made up?  “But J.S. you made up your own mythology in Rise of a Queen, so you’re now dealing with a double standard” I hear some of you shout.  Why yes, I did make up one story, the creation.  I got a little tired of the same old crud that was always thrown into people’s faces so I brought something fresh, yet quite believable to the table.  The second one actually continues into more detail in the second book, which is why I am researching so extensively.  I so love research but getting time to do it and write down the notes can be a bit tough.  Then the tougher part, reading my notes and putting into some form of electronic media since that’s how everything is done at this point. Curses!!!! *fist in air*.

Emma and Melinda have their own storyline, Jason finds love, Tessa hunts for the truth, and the end tale of that truth is a reality that surprises even her.  Ok, enough of those spoilers.  Oh hi River, did I bring you up again?

Late at night I’m up, I did try to sleep, honest. Instead I am here, blogging and gathering more information regarding mythology that existed during the Thrace time period and the movements of one great conqueror (possibly, that one is to be determined).

    Love the pen – I am putting this on my Birthday wish-list!
    You sound like you are being hassled by your own research. Do you use Word or Scrivener to compile your notes…or paper? 😀

  2. A little of everything. I tend to use real paper first, and then type it out in some form, then put it together. Lots of printing though if need be. Easier to step away from the computer.
    I actually use Open Office unless I am converting for the final edition. I’ve gotten so used to it at this point.
    I’m a big whovian and a woven scarf is on my wish. You know the pen is awesome but I also have a collection of Daleks and a working screwdriver collectible (but I use) toy that makes the sounds, lights, and pops open 😀 Those who touch will perish in my house.

  3. Hi:) You really should try to sleep once in a while. Just occasionally.
