Time To Set A New Goal!

goals__by_costalonga-d50x4vwAugust is officially my slowest month so far yet.

Two chapters in 15 days, with five days off and I feel fragged. So I’m going to reset my goal keeper for a mid-September completion date and see where that lands me.

I still haven’t broken 200K on the novel, but I did come up with two new Vampiress Hunter novels for the planned prequel trilogy which follows Child of Blood, Circles of Desire, and Pools of Sorrow.

The first novel is called Blood and Bone and it will take place 16 years before the events set in the debut novel. The story line follows Marlena around in the European Union during the year the terrorist bombings strike the college campuses around the US, heralding in a new age of fear and terror–while laying the groundwork for the military protectorate.

I’m still trying to figure out the whole plot to the book–on top of everything else–but this is what I do as a novelist.

The second book titled Shadows in Starlight tells of what happened to Marlena during her first job assignment as a vampire hunter 200 years after her family and village were wiped out by the earthquake which left her an orphan and into the eventual care of her master and Creator, S’onu.

The third novel in the planned trilogy still doesn’t have a title, but I’ll be thinking of something in the interim.



  1. Wishing you the best in meeting your goals!
