The Death of Kell – OR – How Kell won NaNoWriMo

Good day to you all!

It’s quite worth knowing what I’m up to this month in case I seem a bit secretive. I’ll be doing NaNoWriMo!

As many of you know, Kingdom through the Swamp was a product of a previous NaNo, but I hadn’t gotten all 50,000 words done in time. The novel also went on a good deal farther, to about 70k – 80k if I recall, so I broke multiple rules.

The rule-breaking will not change this year.

As I edit the third Nocturna League, I’ll be doing drafts for two new ones along with a to-be-free short story. I’ve already crafted story beats for 85% of the work, so I should be busy all month long!

As it stands:

Sacrifice – A short story

NL: The Record of Ambition – The first of the flashback Nocturna League stories, this will follow Colette and Grancis before they had joined the Nocturna’s crew, and the events leading up to it.

NL: The Promise of Power – (Still considering this title, so it’s not final) We hop back to the present, in which the Nocturna’s finally receive its letter of pardon from its home port- but not everyone’s gotten the message, and soon the Nocturna will find itself between a mercenary airship and a hard place.

With the short story gunning around 10,000 words, and the two NL’s at 20,000 words, that should create a grand total of 50,000 words! If all goes as planned, I’ll actually have a release backlog, of all things!

Bi-weekly releases for almost an entire month? Yup! Get ready and cheer me on!

Much love,
