Product Description
Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

Some writing advice I read was: "If you're stuck, kill someone."

In the case of erotica, "If you're stuck, throw in a blowjob."

There you go. Easy and fun!

Completely True.

Only wrote for a little while yesterday but got 3053.  :) Spent the rest of my time putting my chapters together. Now on to the next book then edit the one that I 'think' is done.

Good Luck!

It still feels far from release but this progress. I had it done then read it and change over half of it. The other half is for the next book in the series. The good news is I have half of the next book done.

Boo. Only 1571 words for today.

But this month I already beat my WC for all of July, so I guess that's a win. I also had a couple 4k days this week, so it averages out. This sounds familiar... didn't I use that as an excuse last week too?

That's great for the half done with 2 and I feel for you on the edit lol... I did that with Elera, the first 6 chapters had to pretty much be rewritten before I could do anything with the finished piece.. which is when I learned to edit as I go instead of going all in at the end .. ;D 

I have about 17k of book 2 done and another 19k on a new book I am writing in a different genre (this one more to market just to see how it goes) though right now I am behind on the stand-alone since I spent the night editing it all the way through.. ::) ahh well saves time right?

Heck, you're doing great I am still working on yesterday's word count!  :D  (..unless I can count editing, then I am ahead lol!) I don't know how much I will get done today, am not feeling great so may lay down and see how it goes later... with two on the burner I don't think I will be able to let it go though...

I felt a cold starting this morning. I've been taking Vitamin C in hopes of getting rid of it. I think I'm going to rest too!

Feel better!

I'm not stuck, but I'm pretty sure both of those are going to happen in my current WIP. (not an erotica or a particularly action-heavy genre)

That is just the way it goes some days! Way to go beating your July numbers! I am on track to beat mine too.

Rocked out yesterday with 3749, and did a bunch of real work (day job) and working on editing. This weekend does not look good for word count though. I am sending the book I finished this week to my editor on 10/25 so I need to make sure it is ready to go . . . I see a lot of red ink in my future.

Keep up the good work! You can do this!

3510 almost done with the book. I'll probably not be posting here again until next week though ;)

I like to take it easy on the weekends. 0-1 sprints. So I'll be lucky if I break a thousand on Saturday or Sunday

3,066 words for today. I might try for more later, but today is release day for my zombie book (couldn't resist Friday the 13th in October!) so I'll probably be busy with that.

Good luck! I usually take weekends off but I'm toying with the idea of getting some words in this weekend.

I'm right there with you Pandorra. Wound up at just over 2000 for yesterday and am piddling along today with 1350 so far. Better than nothing though, and at least you had some fun with covers!

Going to try to write some more, but it's the end of the day and I'm 6 whiskeys into it.  ;D

3452 on Evolution's Child and the cover which turned out awesome! ;D  (Though I have two covers for Elera I have to decide on) and still going on Evolution which puts me behind a bit on Elera but it was ahead anyways... so I will try to do 5k tomorrow on that after another 3 on Evolution tonight.
