Y’all, I’ve been so scattered over the past week. I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything. :P But I’m back now, and hopefully next week will go a lot more smoothly. (If all goes according to plan, I’ll have a Mirror-Hunter Chronicles cover reveal on Tuesday and start my blog tour for the book on Wednesday!)
But for now, here’s part two of the 4-Part WIP Special for this month. :)
What projects are you working on in addition to Camp NaNo during April?
As you might have guessed, The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles. I finished editing them on Wednesday, I think, so now I get to move on to the cover design and formatting over this weekend and the blog tour starts Tuesday/Wednesday. :)
Give us some more info on these other projects – maybe a synopsis or aesthetic.
All the fairytales you’ve heard are wrong. They’ve all been twisted to be acceptable for general consumption, but I’m here to set the record straight.
I’m Solem Anders, Mirror-Hunter, and this is what really happened.
A Series of Unfortunate Events meets Disney in this short story series as Solem Anders pursues a volatile magic mirror across Farilin, seeking to destroy it and end its trail of tragedy. But when princess Eira steps in his path and enlists his help to overthrow her mother, he is lured into her Pack by the promise of information. Is this the shortest path to the mirror, or just a treacherous diversion?
With the mirror barely out of reach, Solem’s time is ticking away, and he’ll lose far more than a princess when the clock strikes.
Which project is grabbing at your attention the most? Why?
The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles. I’m prepping for a launch, of course! And this is my first purposeful launch, so it’s extra exciting… and kind of nervewracking. XD
Do you have any plans for how you’re going to finish these projects on the side?
Once the cover and formatting are done and I’ve gotten the blog tour rolling and everything, my main responsibilities are getting the final things set up (Goodreads page, Amazon page, etc.), posting on social media (both promotional graphics and stuff and links to the other posts in the blog tour), and commenting on other blog tour posts. Which, I think (I could be wrong), will be less time-consuming than, y’know, editing, and I’ll be able to take care of it more in-between my writing of The Masked Captain.
If you had to set all projects aside and only work on one, which would it be?
The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles.
What’s the next step for each of these projects?
Well, I basically already answered this, but… cover design, formatting, and designing promotional graphics.
Share a snippet from these projects?
“After breakfast, and a short conference in which Kinley explained to Ambrin what was going on and he scrawled out something completely illegible on a napkin, we headed further into Varemar. When we approached the capital—which was far more similar to what I was used to than Grell had been, which seemed wrong—Kinley presented the napkin scribble to the guardsmen and they allowed us to enter. I supposed from the response that it must have been Council authorization, though how the guards recognized that was beyond me.”
What’s your favorite thing about each of these other projects?
I love Solem’s voice in The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles. He’s pretty… I guess snarky might be the right word? He was just a lot of fun to write, and I hope he’s also fun to read. :)
Do you have any non-writing goals to try to meet while doing Camp NaNo?
Nope, not really. Aside from keeping up with this blog (which… is still writing) and my Goodreads reading challenge. Ideally getting out of the book hangover that The Beast of Talesend has left me in…
Do these non-writing goals come before or after Camp according to importance?
My blog comes first (I’m on a schedule here. People are reading my stuff. I can’t just drop it. Plus it’s enjoyable and semi-quick and provides a break from fiction on the occasions that I need one.), followed by The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles, followed by The Masked Captain (Camp), followed by reading.
