Call me CRAZY!

I really mean it - call me CRAZY!
Excited Jeremy Renner - crazy!
It's one day until the A-Z Blogging Challenge begins and I signed up for something else!!


Yes, I am crazy.  I signed up to do the April session of "Camp NaNoWriMo" at the same time as the blogging challenge!  This year you can pick your word goal for the month and it is very flexible.  I'm shooting for 30,000 words on my novel "Breathless" - yes, I am finally revealing the title of my new project!  It's a novella about a young woman named Lainey, who is dealing with the loss of her best friend when she almost drowns.  She is rescued by a mysterious man named Jon, who happens to be a merman.  Did I mention when she first meets him he is naked and injured?

My rough and fake cover
You can read a little more about it and an excerpt on my Camp NaNo page.

I have all of my posts pre-posted and ready for the challenge.  I will be doing my best to visit all of your blogs and leaving comments!  On the side, I will be writing!  I'm hoping it goes well and I'll be tacking on little updates to the bottom of my A-Z posts to keep you updated.

Also, I am dipping my feet into the query pond with my novel, "Defiance"!  I've sent out a few and I am patiently waiting to hear back.  I received one kind rejection today, but I will keep my chin up and respectfully move forward. :)

So, if you are waiting to hear from me about critiques/book reviews - I apologize!  I will be getting back to you in May!

Good luck to all of you with the A-Z Challenge and if you are doing Camp NaNo - let me know!  We can support each other!

    1. Lol, I probably am crazy, Katie! I don't have school so I have a bit more free time. I might do July too, depending on how this goes. Thanks!

  8. Wow! You don't do things by half measures. You'll rock both challenges (and I'm intrigued about your WIP - we don't get to hear about too many mermen).

    1. Thanks Nick! :) Hopefully both challenges go well! I couldn't think of many mermen stories, so I'm hoping it will be a new idea for the field. I promise I will get to your chapters as soon as April ends!
