Dragongift is Coming

Available now to buy from Smashwords and coming soon to everywhere else, the ebook of Dragongift is out!

Which means you will no longer be able to read the whole thing for free either here or on Wattpad. Sorry about that.

However, if you grab a copy between now and the end of the year, you can get it for only 0.99. You can also now add/review it on Goodreads if you’d like.

Full post with all the links to come as and when they go up.

Merry Midweek, everyone!

Welcome to Storm Wings Weekend!

The wait is over – Mhysra, Lyrai, Mouse, Derry, and co are back! Complete with updates across the weekend.
Storm Wings Cover 1
A few quick things before we begin.

  • Dragongift will be available to buy from next week. I’ll do a full release post when it’s up and out.
  • As with Rift Riders and Dragongift, Storm Wings will only be free for a limited time. I won’t be taking it down until after the end though, promise.
  • Spoiler warning! If you haven’t read Rift Riders or Dragongift everything about this book will spoil you, so be careful before clicking on any cuts. The blurb lies below this one.
  • Usual update schedule of Fridays and Sundays begins next week.

And with that out of the way, welcome to the fourth Wingborn book!

And onto December…

Another month, another fumbled not-quite-catch up.

As of the start of last week NaNo was going quite well. I’d just passed 70K on Tuesday and was starting to feel like maybe I was getting towards the end and this was all going to work out. Then Willow got sick.

Fifteen is an excellent age for any dog, especially a large lurcher, but that doesn’t make it any easier to say goodbye.

Suddenly NaNo didn’t seem so important anymore.

Because I found it hard to focus on writing difficult scenes, I put Aquila’s War on hold and realised I needed to edit Dragongift instead since I had originally planned to release it this weekend. Well, that’s not quite going to happen because words are polished but the ebook isn’t ready. It’ll be available next week.

What is coming today is the start of Storm Wings, Wingborn #4. I’ll be leaving Dragongift up until Monday – so if there’s anyone still reading that, hurry, hurry! – but right now it’s time to find out what happened to Mouse, Mhysra & Co.

I’ve also realised I never finished posting Courtship. I should probably do something about that…

*sigh* Isn’t 2017 over yet?

NaNo 2017 Progress Report 1

So far, so tentatively good. I haven’t had a chance to write anything today, which is annoying because I know exactly what I wanted to do, but alas, life and admin got in the way. However, I have plans for getting lots more done tomorrow, which should hopefully carry me those annoying last few words over the 30K mark.

Progress! It is being made!

Have some snippets – no spoilers. (I don’t think…)


DAY TWO
Aquila’s War Ch 1

Lyrai hated it. It was all so fake and false. Give him the wild wind and a miryhl’s wings any day of the moon over this nonsense.

Lyrai, Chapter 1

Day 2 – 2361 words
Overall – 4850 words

DAY THREE
Aquila’s War Ch 2

“Don’t you dare speak to me of history. I have lived it.”

Lyrai, Chapter 2

Day 3 – 4520 words
Overall – 9370 words

DAY FOUR
Aquila’s War Ch 3 (½)

“They won’t keep anything they catch. Not in the narrow valley.”

Gedanon, Chapter 3

Day 4 – 2758 words
Overall – 12,128 words

DAY SIX
Aquila’s War Ch 3 (½)

“Didn’t think.”
Clearly. “There’s a lot of that going around.”

Silveo, Chapter 3

Day 6 – 2880 words
Overall – 15,008 words

DAY SEVEN
Aquila’s War Ch 4

“Cumulo says hello,” she murmured, and he smiled as he kissed her.

Mhysra, Chapter 4

Day 7 – 4252 words
Overall – 19,260 words

DAY EIGHT
Aquila’s War Ch 5

You are needed, the dragon repeated. Your friends need you.

Mouse, Chapter 5

Day 8 – 3146 words
Overall – 22,406 words

DAY NINE
Aquila’s War Ch 6

“Are you mocking your lieutenant, student?”
“Why, yes, sir,” she bowed to both Riders with a flourish, “I do believe I am.”
“Excellent.” Stirla gave her an approving nod. “Keep up the good work.”

Corin and Stirla, Chapter 6

Day 9 – 3215 words
Overall – 25,621 words

DAY TEN
Aquila’s War Ch 7 + 8 (½)

No, there was nothing better than flying.

Lyrai, Chapter 7

Day 10 – 4243 words
Overall – 29,864 words

29,864 / 90,000 words. 33% done!


I might not be pushing on quite as fast as last year, but I’m pretty happy with it so far. Especially considering how out of practise I am and how much of my free time is being gobbled up by a greedy puppy. All in all, progress is good, and will hopefully pick up as the plot pace increases.

To all my fellow NaNo participants out there, I hope your stories are going well, and here’s to many more words to come!

Merry Saturday, everyone!
