Merry Christmas to all!

I pray that you can find joy in this season, as we reflect on the great love of a God that would gift His son to save the world.  Merry Christmas.

It’s Been a Year!

The Wages or the Gift is a bit (three days) over a year old now, and I think that we had a great first year.  If you have not had a chance to read it yet, it is on sale on Amazon right now.  It’s a great time to check it out.  If you do I hope it blesses you as it entertains you.  🙂

Review Goals

I try to stress the importance and significance of leaving a review ever so often.  I need about 50 reviews before Amazon starts to really pay attention to my novel.  Right now I have 13.  I am so grateful for everyone who has left one.

I am grateful to all of you who read the book, regardless of whether or not you posted a review.  But reviews are so helpful. If you got the book somewhere other than Amazon, you can still leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads.  So just saying if you have read The Wages or the Gift even if it was not a favorite, please just take a few minutes to leave a review.

About NaNoWriMo

Okay, so my first attempt at NaNoWriMo was not successful.  I wrote under 2000 words.  Sorry.  It honestly was a flow issue.  The words were not coming like I needed them too.  Still working on it, but I will get the first draft of Wrong Number finished.

The Audiobook

The Wages AudioCover

I was hoping to be able to release the audiobook this year, but it looks like that will not happen before 2019 as well.  There was a delay in production on my producers end.

I am still doing #livetweetanovel.  If you have not had a chance to check it out yet, my twitter name is @Rozkai.  Currently I am reading and tweeting about a book called Miranda Warning.  Next up will be a book called The Awakening.  Stay tuned.  Please retweet, and check out the books if they sound interesting to you.

About Last Night…

A big thank you to everyone who came out the Bricktown Freaky Book Bang in OKC!  We had a great time.  I signed and sold a book, and I was able to meet and introduce some new people to my work.  I call that a success.  Also it was fun to be a supermodel for a day. lol OCKpic

NaNoWriMo 2018

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  This year, for the first time, I have decided to do the NaNoWriMo challenge.  I’m still feeling my way around the site and trying to get the gist of this phenomenon, but I already have a couple of writing buddies. So yay! The challenge for me now is deciding which work in progress (WIP) to focus on for the challenge.  Also I think I am supposed to set a word goal.  I guess that will depend on which WIP I choose.  Here are my choices:

God or Mammon

Originally, I was going to choose the second book in the Life Choices series,God or Mammon (Life Choices Book B). It’s a medical thriller.  This one will be fun to write, and I am very excited about it.

Patches

The first draft of Patches is already finished.  It is a supernatural thriller with angels and demons, and all kinds of wonderful spiritual warfare.  It’s about an interracial couple that moves to a small town called Purblind.  Christopher White is an architect and his wife, a black woman, is  his lawyer.  After doing a remodeling project in Purblind, AL, Christopher falls in love with the quiet little town, and purchases a house and some land there.  Purblind only allows certain families to own land, so imagine their surprise when not only has an outsider purchased their land, but he also shows up with a mixed family.  I still have a few beta readers who are reading it, and I recently got it back from my editor.  So if I choose it, I will be mostly correcting and rewriting.  Which can be fun as well, but I want to hear from more of my Beta Readers before I get started on this one.  And some of them are still reading.

Wrong Number

I started working on this novel a few years ago, and lately it has been calling me back to it.  Here’s the blurb:  Billions of digits randomly collated into systematic sequences of ten, doled out according to nation, state, and area have linked our society in an intricately woven tapestry of communication. For Jason Gord, one systematic sequence became a lethal obsession, and for Cardigan DuPree the same phone number started a life altering nightmare. It is a thriller suspense novel. I am seriously itching to work on this one again. So I think I will choose it for NaNoWriMo.

#LiveTweetANovel

So I have started to do this new thing on twitter.  You know how people live tweet their favorite shows and such?  Well I thought it might be a fun thing to do with novels as well.  So I started #LiveTweetANovel.  Basically I am giving my reactions to what I am reading as I go along.  Not for every page of course, but ever so often when I have a comment or thought about what I am reading.  I am hoping this catches on, as I think it could be kind of fun.  I am currently reading Miranda Warning by Heather Day Gilbert.  Follow me on Twitter @Rozkai to find out what I am thinking about the novel so far.
