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....

Congrats and good luck on the release! I definitely think that qualifies as a free day from writing lol... though you still got 2k which is brilliant! How are your nerves on the release?

Thanks!  ;D

No real nerves--I had the HUGE good luck to score the Bookbub on book 1 for the day prior to the release of book 2, so the preorders jumped by 2/3rds today alone. I'm hoping the readthrough will be good--that'll be really interesting to follow.

That's Great! Again congratulations! ;D ;D  How long before you have to release the next? Is it part of the series or something else?

I reckon I'll have the next ready by about March next year--I have to put out the next in my main fantasy series first, and I'm trying to get the first 3 books of a UF ready to go so I can do a 1-2-3 in April or May next year. And yes, it's a series--scifi, anywhere up to 10 books, I reckon.

And that's not even all I WANT to write  :D ??? :P

When I write I can do 3000 words a day. But I cannot sustain that and often stop as I go over character development and story structure and [crap] like that. I don't write 3000 words a day then and if I did I just consider it story development process.

Ugh, won't make it today  >:(

For kinda good reason, I s'pose--I did 8 hours at the day job, and just released the 2nd book in my Time Traveller's Best Friend series today, along with having a Bookbub on book 1.

I've made 2k and my head is busted ??? I'll try again tomorrow; I have another 8 hours at the day job, but no new release to shepherd  ::)

Well done to those who made it! And to everyone who made the effort, like me  :-*


All things considered, the fact you got to 2k with everything you have going on is impressive. Congrats on the launch!

Well done you! :o

I've hit 3k for the day--2k on my current fantasy WiP, The Staff and the Crown, and 1k on my current UF WiP (tentatively titled "Between Jobs"). Phew! Now for another cuppa and some binge watching of Hogan's Heroes! I've been mainlining the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks for my writing time, so it's probably about time to go for something more sedate  :D

I'm tempted. I seriously need to up my daily word count, but I'm not sure I can make 3k every day. At least not with my current WC. This whole year has been awful. I need something to get me motivated. Maybe I should join the other thread, since my realistic goal is 2.5-3k.

Thinking...
