Hardcover Giveaway

The hardcover edition of my book is up for a Goodreads giveaway. Go check it out! Ten copies are up for grab, so don't miss out.

In other news, I'd been working on a heroic fantasy book for a while, but it was giving me pains. I know I can write it, eventually, when I have more time for writing to figure it all out. But right now, working a taxing day job, I need to write stories I've gotten straight in my head already.

So I switched to writing a different story, one based on a short, unconventional query I wrote a long time ago from a random character who popped into my head. I didn't know it yet, but this character belongs in the same world as my published book, which I hadn't even started yet at that point.

The plot's been stewing in my head for a long time, developing in the background as I wrote The Complete Guide to Being Evil. And with the setting mostly developed (it is across the country from The Guide, so it isn't completely done), I can focus on the characters. So far it's been almost effortless to write. I'm really excited!

Hope everyone had a good Mother's Day!

  2. Don't you love it when random characters pop into your head and demand their own book? :)

    1. Yep. Especially when they're as fully-formed and different from my own personality as Gari.
