It’s been a very long time since I tried NaNoWriMo. I failed early by becoming distracted and losing interest, but much has changed since then and I tried again and start fresh!
I have more on my side this time, for example, the support of fellow authors, the encouragement of others, and I’m not going in blind. They have given me some fantastic advice to take this challenge this year. I also have a rough outline of an idea that I’ve wanted to do for some time. Since I never laid down an actual word for this story, I decided this was the project for this event and this year.
Yes, I have deadlines to publishers. Yes, I’ll be getting those things done. Luckily, I have the support of my family and the time to get everything done now.
If you take part in NaNoWriMo, please add me as a buddy! Let’s support eachother. My Profile
So far, the information about this collection is that it will include Human Ouija. This is a collection signed to the wonderful press Dark Books Press publishing company and will be the continuing of a project originally discussed and was in progress when the doors closed at Burning Willow Press. I had already begun collecting short stories, polishing stories, and reworking several unfinished or finished works that needed to be adjusted for publication more.
As of right now, this collection has moved into the editing phase. I still do not have a date for the release as this post goes live, but the publisher and myself have high hopes of it coming out sooner rather than later.
Contents of collection so far:
- Just Underneath (psychological thriller)
- A Farmhouse Haunting (ghost story)
- The Gaze of Destruction (post-apocalypse vampire tale)
- The Owls (Sci-fi horror)
- Human Ouija (Paranormal) (Bestselling and Award-winning short story)
- The Painting of Martel (supernatural, possession, serial-killer)
- A Man Named Sowder (psychological ghost story)
- The Clockwork Children (supernatural, emotional)
Readers may recognize many of these stories. Several have been published in other anthologies, mainly in the Crossroads in the Dark series that was published by Burning Willow Press. The Clockwork Children has never been published before. There are a few more stories I want to add to round the collection out, but this is up to my publisher.
