Just for the fun of it, I am diving into the month of madness known as nanowrimo or National Novel Writing Month.
My plans are simple. Write 50,000 words or more and don’t get worried. No sitting and staring and pondering continuity. Just write. Most importantly, no editing of stuff I’ve already written. That favored form of procrastination is to be vehemently refrained from for the duration.
The greatest question of all is “What novel to write?” There are all too many novels clawing at my mind, begging to be written. Which will be the lucky winner this time? The main contenders are two urban fantasy concepts. One is new and exciting and not so very well fleshed out (in theory) and the the other is a bit more seasoned and thought out.
Until my mind changes, I will be working on the great adventure of Josey Jackson that goes by the title, Wanted: Undead or Alive.
Josey Jackson is what you might call a bounty hunter, or a mercenary, or some worse things if you’re feeling lucky. There is a limitless supply of punks, creeps, bozos, freaks, etc…, who need to be put out of their misery or otherwise stopped. The best part is, people will pay for it.
Specializing in Target Retrieval and Removal, demolitions, and supernatural situations, Josey is not subtle, but very effective. She also happens to be a highly unstable magus.
When she takes a seemingly easy contract to transport a captured member of the elusive magical mafia known as the Crimson Phoenix—better known as the Red Birds—across three states, things don’t stay simple for long. The red bird mafia will do everything they can to stop her from completing her mission. What she doesn’t know is that there is a far more elaborate plot in effect and the mafia wants more than her prisoner. She’ll have to survive undead bikers, gunslinging vamps, and other monsters, human and otherwise as she crosses the no-man’s-land of the Texas-Arizona border.
The novella that reveals a little of Josey’s history is now available for free download from many fine eBook retailers including iBooks, nook, sony, and more. Or get it here: Fiery Red Mage: A Josey Jackson Story
