Wow, it's been a crazy week! Edits on Starward have taken over my life but I've got to say that I'm extremely excited about this series!!! I know, I think I've actually already said that, but I can't help it. I'm really looking forward to getting this first book into the hands of readers out there and seeing what they think about it. :)
So, as it stands, one chapter has already been added and I'm getting ready to write an entirely new chapter today from a perspective other than Rosa's. I'm excited about this because I think this is really going to give some good depth and insight into this story. But I'm also a little nervous because the perspective is coming from a Russian woman who is the Commander for the space mission everyone is preparing for. And I have no idea exactly how her mind is going to work yet. I guess I'll just have to start writing and see what happens! By the way, does anyone out there know any good/humorous Russian phrases?? If so, please leave a comment below with a translation...I'd be forever grateful!
Okay, on to New Ideas! I have two different series ideas rolling around in the back of my mind at the moment. One is an adult murder mystery series and the other is an adult paranormal romance series (but there are no vampires, werewolves, or ghosts in this series as those themes have been waaaay overdone...just saying). I've actually already begun plot and character development for the adult paranormal romance but I still have a lot of research and development to do before I can begin the actual writing. And it's the same for the adult murder mystery series. I just know that I'm extremely excited to have these two new writing projects unfolding and when I do finally begin writing on them, I'll post a progress bar on this blog to keep everyone up-to-date on how the writing is coming along.
And now, some other awesome news: Cressen Books LLC will have it's first intern starting this fall!!! We're so excited to be working with the young lady (whose name will not be mentioned until I actually get permission from her to do so). For her internship project, she is actually working on her first novel and will be shown the entire publishing process from start to finish. At the end of her internship (I believe it ends in December but don't quote me on that), we hope to have helped her develop a publishable novel and she'll have a choice at that time as to whether she would like to actually publish her book through our company or not. (We're hoping she will because we've already been told what the book is going to be about and it sounds awesome!!! So, of course we would love to add that to our growing list of books we offer to our readers. No pressure though...lol.) Anyway, once the official internship starts, I'll see if she'll allow me to post a bio and maybe an interview with her on this blog.
Whew...it's amazing how much stuff is really going on that I don't realize until I write it all down! And all of it's good, so that's even better!! With that said, I really need to get back to my writing cave and get started on this new chapter for Starward. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
