Why haven't I finished yet? #Darksoul #amwriting #tiredfingers

The posting for I've been doing every weekend about interesting book finds isn't ready. Sorry! I'll have it up in a couple of days. The posts are a bit labor intensive and I just haven't had the time to do anything other than write down the titles.

What's the delay?

I've been pushing all week to have Darksoul completed by the end of the month. Oh, look! Today is the last day of the month and I'm so close to being finished--but not quite. I have the final reveal scene and the wrap up and then the last chapter. So I'm "thinking" 10k, at least I hope so.

Then I have to type everything up. I used to be really discontent with the process--hand write the chapter then type it up--until I realized that everything was fine because as I'm typing I'm revising and editing.

The book will come in probably around 110-120k. So far the book is at 86k and I have two more notebooks to type up, so 120k isn't too far off. That makes Darksoul the longest novel I've written so far. I have to remind myself of that fact because at least once a week I'm wondering, "Why in the hell aren't I finished yet?"

Some of the reason for the delay is because Kenzie Kade and I are passing back and forth a WIP (our book is so fucking cool, you guys, but I can't give any spoilers) so I haven't been exclusively working on Darksoul all of this time.

Still... I wanted to be finished in October and it looks like I'm going to run over by a day or two. So I'm headed back to the kitchen for something to eat since I've only had a yogurt this morning and grab another cup of coffee.

Wish me luck!!

Thank you for stopping by and reading!!

Four and a half centuries from now, a lethal designer drug known as Angel has become an epidemic disease, and a new breed of hero has evolved to a generation doomed to be lost to its ravages.

Jarrat and Stone are captains in the paramilitary NARC -- Narcotics and Riot Control -- assigned to combat the Death's Head drug syndicate in control of the vast spaceport city of Chell.

Under the NARC code of non-involvement, each of the two men hides his deeper desire for the other. But when Stone is captured on the urban battlefield and forced into Angel addiction, Jarrat's love for him is his only chance for survival ... but the price is that their minds will remain permanently linked in an empathic bonding...

And for NARC, the opportunity offered by this unique situation is too golden to pass up. To the team designing cutting-edge surveillance systems, the connection between Jarrat and Stone is a gift from jealous gods. But for the men themselves, the situation is an explosive cocktail of desire and dread, love and anger -- the struggle to survive, and a harsh question which both must answer.

What good is being king if you can’t burn your own rules?

Ethereal Foes, Book 4

In the two years since Jentaron hatched, he’s grown into an adult blue dragon full of the knowledge of his royal predecessors. He’s a true king, even if the other denizens of the Ethereal, those demons, havoc, angels and the like, continue to test him.

But he’s got heavier worries. Namely, an unspeakable danger that threatens all life as the planet knows it. He can feel it, can sense that he’s got a bigger role to play than just pissing off the Ethereal.

With the blood elves and havoc making more trouble than usual, magic no longer flowing freely in the Abyss, and angels massacring everything demonic they can get their holy hands on, the Balance has reached a tipping point. Time to take charge before the rules change.

What’s a dragon to do but create his own chaos? He’ll take a mate or two, instill fear where needed, and finally return dragonkind to the Ordinary—the human lands—where a dragon will decide the fate of the worlds.

Because he’s king, and he says so.

Warning: Contains a dragon king challenged by a devious demon and an alluring, not-so-human human. Expect carnal hunger only a king can satisfy, and heat only a dragon can generate.

Prince Allen has trained his entire life to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious mother, who has made their kingdom one of the wealthiest and most influential in the empire. For the past few years he has trained to become the new consort of the High King. The only thing no one prepared him for was the stubborn, arrogant High King himself, who declares Allen useless and throws him out of court.

High King Sarrica is ruling an empire at war, and that war will grow exponentially worse if his carefully laid plans do not come to fruition. He's overwhelmed and needs help, as much as he hates to admit it, but it must be someone like his late consort: a soldier, someone who understands war, who is not unfamiliar with or afraid of the harsher elements of rule. What he doesn't need is the delicate, pretty little politician foisted on him right as everything goes wrong.

The war that followed destroyed the small country, but she emerges unbroken…if not unscathed.

As fate would have it, her hated kidnapper left her carrying his child, and that is a condition even she cannot wish away.

Vallmer Berringen, the handsome and devout prince of a country allied with conquered Sebboy, has come to Uttor for two reasons: to secure the treaty that will give his country a much needed alliance, and to fulfill his father’s orders to use the occasion to find a suitable bride. Captivated by Adora’s intelligence and courage, Vallmer is torn by the fact she is both pregnant and pagan. Her infamous reputation taints Adora, a woman that a man of his position and faith should never be tempted to woo.

Can he reconcile his vision for his country with his passion for a woman whose spirit sets his blood on fire—but for whom kingdoms have gone to war?

When Wil is brought in for questioning as a witness to a brutal murder, and subsequently flees, Dallin is dragged by duty into the chaos of ancient myth, fanatical religion, and the delicate politics of a shaky truce between two perpetually warring countries, all of which seem to hinge on the slender shoulders of the man he knows is not Wilfred Calder.

The eventual capture of Dallin’s quarry only makes matters worse. Wil is prickly and full of rage, rebellious and lethal, and tells an unbelievable tale of magic and betrayal that threatens to rock the carefully cultivated foundations of Dallin's world. Leery and only half-believing, Dallin finds himself questioning not only his own conscience and his half-forgotten past, but the morality and motives of everyone around him, including those who hold the power of his own country’s fate in their hands.

Vampire hunter, Harper Yovanoff, is not happy. She’s been assigned a new partner—one who’s an utter pain in her ass. Elliot Zielin is gorgeous, but he’s also reckless and insufferably arrogant. If he’s not careful, the vampires will be the least of his worries.

Elliot knows he should play nice with his new partner but can’t resist poking the bear—the tiny, angry bear who’s so freaking beautiful, she makes him ache for things he shouldn’t. Despite the fact that Harper has a stake with his name on it, he keeps pushing.

When a powerful vampire begins stalking hunters, Harper and Elliot are forced to work even more closely together. With tempers and adrenaline high, letting off a little steam goes way too far, and they end up in a place they never expected.

Luca and Oliver are partners, in every sense of the word, and spend their lives running toward danger. Falling for Tara was the biggest risk they’d ever taken, and her vanishing had gutted them.

But, she’s back, desperate for their help. Reigniting their love is simple. But nothing is simple when, faced with an impossible choice, Tara reveals the truth.

Now that Luca and Oliver know, Tara has another choice to make—run again or trust that they’ll look beyond the monster she fears they’ll see.

Free Lord Garron, the son of a powerful duke arrested on trumped up charges in a rival duchy. Mouse doesn’t do rescue missions. He’s no altruistic hero, and something about the job reeks. But he cannot turn his back on that much coin—enough to buy a king’s pardon for the murder charge hanging over his head.

Getting Garron out of his tower prison is the easy part. Now, they must escape an army of guardsmen, a walled keep and a city on lockdown, and a ruthless mage using her power to track them. Making matters worse, Mouse is distracted by Garron’s charm and unyielding integrity. Falling for a client can lead to mistakes. Falling for a nobleman can lead to disaster. But Mouse is unprepared for the dangers behind the plot to make Lord Garron disappear.
