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....

Sunday: 1221
Monday: 1507
Tuesday: 1030


Been tempted to give up so I think I unconsciously forget to post on KBoards.  But just before I go to bed I look at my wall calendar and see the line of Xs where I've crossed off every day I've written. I'm determined not to break that streak.

810 for Tuesday, but I fell asleep at the keyboard. Does it count if I pressed the letter L long enough to fill 22+ pages?

I've written only three out of ten days this month, but I'm still averaging about 1300 words a day. As much as I'd love to be a "write everyday" kind of writer, I think I'm more of a sprinter, especially toward the end of a book.

The key for me is not going too long between those sprints and losing all momentum.

I wrote 9K and edited 12K. Now I'm going on a two-mile walk because it's 50 degrees in Michigan in January (and that never happens). I might do an outline later but, for now, I'm enjoying the weather and finishing early.
