Steam Powered Wordle

I have a big weekend ahead. I have it off but now I have to do a big push to finish my NaNoWriMo. My goal is to do 5500 words today and tomorrow. So far today I've managed to sleep in, play on Farmville and Wordle.

This is my creation for my newest book Steam Powered Passion. Which is due for release on the 30th, but is available for pre-order. :-)

Wordle: Steam Powered Passion

I have to warn you though, making wordles are very addictive.

Okay, I really need to get writing now...

It's been a busy month so far. Between a new release, edits for Steam Powered Passion, and National Novel Writing Month, it no wonder the piles of clothes in my laundry room would rival Mt. Everest.

A couple posts ago I showed you a picture I used as inspiration for my story Haunted Hearts. Now as I push my way through NaNoWriMo I though I'd use that idea again.

This is the background on my laptop at the moment. Everyone, this is Vencel and Gaspar.

Yup, I get inspired every time I look at them LOL

Below is a song I heard playing on the radio after I dropped the kids off at school. As soon as it started playing I could almost see what I needed to write next and how the boys and Mai end up in the situation. I couldn't wait to get home and bang out some words. When I took a break I popped out to the mall and picked up the CD. I'm so stoked! I'm listening to it right now and I really need to get back to my word count.

As a BTW I'll post more details but when I do come out of the writing cave at the end of the month, I'll be hanging out with Kris Cook during his chat on the 1st. Come by and say Hi!

What inspires you?

Today's the day!!!

Haunted Hearts is released today!

Gwen is a survivor. Living through a horrific accident that left her with the ability to see spirits, and escaping the iron fist of her father. She’s tried to create a future out of lies. When it becomes apparent that one ghost isn’t willing to leave her alone, she knows she may never truly be safe again.

Mac fights the guilt he feels in his father’s death. Hiding away from life, until a beautiful woman appears in his path and forces him to live up to his own personal code. Despite her arguments to the contrary, she needs a hero and he needs to be one.

What will happen when they are forced to face the truth? When the ghosts of the past haunt them both, will their love protect them or will it destroy their future?
