The November question / blog post subject of the IWSG group is:
Win or not, do you usually finish your NaNo project? Have any of them gone on to be published?
Well – I have only taken part in one NaNoWriMo which was in November 2016. I considered myself barmy for taking part, as I had the editing process of Nephilim Quest 2 / Moon Daughter underway, as well as the illustrating of Mr Mummific’s second book (Mummies, Monsters and the Ship of Millions).
Therefore I stole every free minute I could find and typed like a nut. No planning, just writing. I managed 56.000 words, and after the last full stop I swore never again. I was squeezed dry.
Still, when I read what I had written, I did have a chuckle at the end result. I had managed to mixin ancient Egypt, sci-fi, witches and afterlife with a dystopian sprinkle and lots of dark humor in the story. How the heck my subconscious cooked that soup I’m sure I’ll never know. The book was edited by my ever patient editor who must have rolled her eyes at the end result. And yes, it was published.
It was so much fun to write I decided it would be the first book of a series I could write in between the Nephilim Quest books.
You can read the first part of the book right here. ->
Space Witches Book 1: The Book of Witches.
