It’s January already?Posted: January 7, 2016 Filed under: Risking Alex | Tags: book release, Melissa Stevens, Risking Alex, series, WMC Leave a comment
so here it is… (OMG) January already… What am I doing? Well, when I’m not working on the Old Man’s last minute work projects I’m working on something I like to call Risking Alex. What is Risking Alex you might ask? Well, it’s the next book in the WMC series. It’s the sequel to Jade’s Peace. Cover? Release date? I don’t have them yet but I will have them soon, I promise. I have the first draft done. I’m in the middle of the re-write and filling in gaps. I’m hoping to be able to send it to my editor by Feb 1… (please don’t lynch me if I don’t get it there on time..) My projected release date is some time in early to mid May…
BTW. If you see me online, please remind me to get back to work!!
Is this a book you’re interested in? Who’s story do you want to see next?
We’re down to less than a weekPosted: December 20, 2015 Filed under: Odds and Ends | Tags: Christmas, family, holidays, Melissa Stevens Leave a comment
from Christmas. Am I ready? No. but I am far closer than I was a week ago. I’ve got everything planned out so things should go at least mostly smoothly. Things never go entirely smoothly, but I’m okay with mostly. I’ve got to finish moving furniture… wrap the last of the gifts… start the roast thawing for dinner the big day. There’s more but that’s the big stuff. I also have to work in some writing/rewriting if I can.
What are your holiday plans and are you ready?
How did it get to be almost Christmas already?Posted: December 16, 2015 Filed under: Odds and Ends | Tags: Christmas, Melissa Stevens, Nanowrimo, time flies Leave a comment
The last thing I know, NaNo was just starting. It seems like I blink and not only is NaNo over (and won) but Christmas is less than two weeks away (do I have to put up a tree?) I swear, every time I blink another week has gone by.
NaNoWriMo ‘15 Week 1Posted: November 6, 2015 Filed under: NaNoWriMo | Tags: Melissa Stevens, nano, Nanowrimo, week 1, writing Leave a comment
Nearly a week into NaNoWriMo ‘15 I’m not doing great. My back has been giving me fits for three weeks now, and I’ve been going to the chiropractor since early this week. I am finally getting better but I’m still pretty sore and not sleeping all that well. Earlier this week I was doing my best to function on only 3 hours sleep. Now I’m doing better but it’s a slow climb. My story is good, I’m just having a hard tuning into my characters. I’m sure it’s more than a little bit due to the lack of sleep and the crazy busy schedule we’ve had over the last week. I’m hoping that some good rest and a calmer schedule will help me get some extra work done over the weekend and into next week.
How is your NaNo going?

As I get ready to head out to teach another session of Creating Cool Characters for our NaNo Prep classes at the library I feel the need to drop in with a quick up date.
We’re still on release week for Wicked After Dark. We’ve had a ton of help and right now we’re even featured on Free Kindle Books and Tips. So far, I’ve managed to get as high as #46 on Amazons bestselling Paranormal Romance Authors list, and let me tell you, I’m so excited I can’t sit still.
Things aren’t going as quicklyPosted: September 11, 2015 Filed under: Odds and Ends | Tags: family, Melissa Stevens, trips, writing Leave a comment
as I would like. Not because the story isn’t working or my characters aren’t talking to me, but because my life is too busy. I have too much going on to spend as much time working with the friends who live inside my head as I would like.
Too many kids, too many sporting events, too many weddings and family reunions. Well, at least too many to get the story out as quickly as I would like. Not that I would trade any of it (well, maybe the sports crap in the heat) but I’d like more time to get my writing done too.
