Writing hours in October 2014

I’ve been waiting with bated breath for October, because that meant my newest lesbian romance, Under a Falling Star, would be published. It’s been out for just a few days now, and it’s already number 1 in the Kindle bestseller list for lesbian fiction and lesbian romance.

So I’d say October was a really good month for me.

I finished the translation of Conflict of Interest. The title of the German version is “Auf schmalem Grat,” which roughly translates to “a fine line.”

My co-author Alison Grey and I are also making good progress on our vampire novella, Good Enough to Eat, which is now at 34,000 words. If this one turns into a novel, I will blame it on Alison :-)

I’m also excited about a new short story that I just finished, titled “The Midnight Couch.” It’s about a broadcast technician who has a crush on the radio psychologist working for the same radio station.

Let’s take a look at the numbers:

So what’s up for November? I have joined NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month that challenges writers from all over the world to write 50,000 words of a novel in November. Check back next month to see whether I managed to achieve that goal.

Have a nice Sunday, everyone!
