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....

In other news, it's 6 degrees out with a wind chill of -16. Yeah, Montana is a BIT different from Florida.

Elle, Burr!!!! 13 at my house this morning in NW Colorado.

Some how by the grace of god or goddess, whoever, I managed 3044 yesterday. . . it took me all day. My mind kept wondering . . . today has started better 1400 so far, almost half way there.

Stacy hope you are able to fight off the illness.

5 words today. Published another book. But yes, it is cold here in Montana. 13 inches of snow in the previous 4 days. Didn't snow today. Had a cottontail bunny take up residence in our backyard woodpile.

Cutest little thing...

Gratz on the finished books and counts everyone! I think I may be hitting a burn out soon and may need to actually read something other than what I wrote! LOL

Started great yesterday then fell into an endless pit. 3000, yes on the button. It took everything I had to get it done. On to a new day, with another good start.

The good news is that the mini-remodel of my home office is almost done!  Spent two hours putting together a sofa bed last night . . . I just need some wall art and bookcase and I'm done.  :D

I once did 10,000 words in a day - it was a long day, raining outside, home alone, and I was in a typing frenzy, passing each 1,000 word mark and aiming for the next one, but when it clicked over from 9,999, I stopped. I keep wondering how much I could achieve if I only worked half that hard... but one day does not a dedicated writer make, and I think I belong in the, '3,000 Words Tomorrow Club'.

I've slept over 24 hours in the last two days, no writing done. Starting to feel human again though.

Good luck today everyone!

1026. Not much but it's start after being so sick.

Hopefully I'll be back in the game starting tomorrow. If so, I'll still be able to finish my WIP by the original deadline, which was the 15th. On the other hand, with so much time to think I made some pre-planning process on a couple standalones I'm going to write early next year. My lack of writing wasn't a complete waste! I also got some reading in.

Good luck, all!

I'm hoping to move up into the club soon.  After a long period of being in the zero words a day club, I have moved into the 2k words a day club but I know I can make 3k.

It'll just require a little discipline.  I can write at 2-2.4k wph when I really get going.  The problem is that 1 hour writing takes place over 2-3 hours while i keep getting distracted by other things.  I'm slowly cutting out the distractions but it will still require a bit of willpower to ignore all the forums, emails, games, news, random-thoughts-I-need-to-look-up that keep getting in the way...

I got 2597 yesterday, then my sickness kicked me down again. I've gone back to pre-plotting my upcoming stories for today. Hopefully I can write tomorrow.
