Word Count Wednesday #2

I’m about three weeks into writing Gray Haze, and I have reached 22,485 words (+12,470 words from the last update) and almost 7 chapters! I’m actually very happy with the progress I’ve made so far. If I can write 7 chapters every three weeks, I could finish the book by the beginning of March! Still, I’ve set the goal to May 2019 so I have a better chance of achieving it. I am super excited about this one, guys. The current chapter I am writing is called “When The Sky Breaks,” and it’s pretty intense.

I said in the last writing update that I could expand this story into a trilogy. It could even be longer than that. The ideas are flowing! We’ll see once I’m halfway through the first one.

In case you didn’t notice, I posted a new event on the sidebar: Author Birthday Surprise (September 23rd)! I am thinking about doing something special for my birthday regarding my books, but it’s a surprise, so I can’t tell you what that might be! lol

Don’t forget that the first 50 subscribers to my newsletter have a chance of receiving a FREE paperback copy of Liquid Death! Plus, if you fill in your birthday (not required), I’ll send you a personal message with an exclusive deleted scene from The Edinön Trilogy on that date!

I have a profile at My Book Cave where you can view the content ratings for Liquid Death and Dawning Life and even rate them yourself!

I also have a profile on AllAuthor, and I’ve entered the October cover contest with Burning Space. I’ll provide a link for that when it’s available so you can vote! 🙂

Gray Haze is a paranormal/horror/fantasy set in the near future. Synopsis:

In Fog Creek, a small town in New York, the high school principal dies of a heart attack. His eldest son and daughter, MARCUS and MERCY, return home to attend his funeral and support their widowed mother and their younger, adopted brother, MALIK. The death of their father was sudden and unexpected, but clearly not out of the ordinary.

AMORA, a girl who lost both parents in a car accident when she was eighteen, left university to take care of her four younger siblings. Three years later, she still works at the same popular diner and sells her art on the side. After serving a mysterious customer at the diner, Amora begins noticing lights flickering, voices wafting through her window, and odd smells. She inadvertently catches the source of one of the voices on video: a dark creature with red eyes.

As the paranormal occurrences increase in frequency and intensity, the townspeople fear that they will spread outside Fog Creek and wreak havoc on the world. Further conflict arises when a powerful stranger appears to shed light on their unusual circumstances. Is this newcomer their invaluable ally – or their greatest enemy?

What do you think?

Next writing update will be posted on October 3rd!
