November is National Novel Writing Month. I didn’t participate last year, but this year I want to hit the ground running. Are you familiar with NaNoWriMo? It’s a drive to write a first draft in 30 days or less. 50k words, no excuses. I like to do it, but I don’t like to do it ALONE, and last year I didn’t bother doing it at all because I believe I was in edits for Threefold Love and finishing up The Shape of Honey. Not this year. Not this time. So, who wants to join me? We can lose sleep, lament, and rejoice together!
WE SHALL HAVE WORD VICTORY!
If it weren’t for NaNoWriMo (and some awesome friends) I wouldn’t be a published author right now.
P.S. You can become my Writing Buddy by going to NaNoWriMo.org and looking up my altar ego Ki Brosius.
Yulian Volkov is an entrepreneur and lone werewolf who hates the city. At a pack meeting, he learns the only member he’s attracted to is being expelled for crimes unspecified. Yulian strikes a deal with the pack leader to allow Rolly Witten to live on his farm and work in his Meadery. Although enjoying handsome Rolly’s company, Yulian must tread carefully, since Rolly doesn’t trust him and the pack doesn’t acknowledge homosexuality exists. Meanwhile, Yulian stealthily courts Rolly by teaching him the value of his wolf side.
Rolly, who’s known he was gay since he was a teen, has accepted a life of solitude—and a life of crime. He has no desire to relocate. Yet Yulian’s trust in his ability to do honest work builds his confidence. As life is settling well for them, Rolly learns a friend from his old pack had a crush on him, and he’s torn between returning his friend’s feelings or pursuing the budding relationship with Yulian. But that’s not their worst problem. Assassins are trying to take out both wolves, and they need to figure out who wants them dead or all the trust and happiness they’re building together won’t matter.
