Stories finished and new stories started

I got distracted this weekend blogging about my 11 books in 2011 challenge, and forgot to post about my progress with writing.

Her Warrior Angel is finished in first draft now. I completed it on Wednesday, but it’s not quite perfect. I know I have a few issues with the final chapter to resolve during the second draft, but it’ll be easy to address them then rather than tinker with it now. Better to move on to other projects and let it sit for a bit so I can gain some perspective on the issues. It’s nothing major. Just a few things need ironing out and writing better, and I need to check for repetition.

Her Fallen Angel is in much better shape now after final tweaks. I wanted to make sure that the conflict came through and things weren’t overly easy for them. It’s ready for the final polish and proof now, and will hit the deadline for release on October 16th.

I’ve started writing a new story this morning. Vampire for Christmas is my seasonal offering for the year. I’m hoping to get it written in first draft this week and then edited and ready for release in November. That’s a short deadline but I only decided to do a seasonal piece just the other week, so I didn’t really get much notice myself. Sometimes I have to roll with the muse. He wants to write a paranormal Christmas story, so I’ll write one. I have the plot down for it, and just need to write the beast. It’ll probably be another novella, topping out around 30,000 words. It’s a vampire piece, obviously, but the heroine is human and a hunter no less. I like toying with vampire / vampire hunter relationships. I won’t give too much away about it though. It’ll spoil the festive surprise! I have a whopping 1500 words of it written as of this morning, but I’ll hopefully be up to around the 6000 word mark by the time I get home from work.
