So now that Seducing Sensei has been released, I'm working on a new title!
When I start a new WIP, I give it a working title. This one has had several titles kicked around.
The Would-Be Dragon
Chronicles of the Fire Damned
Will of Fire
But Pyromage has stuck. Pyromage may very well be the series name. The Pyromage Series. This book will either be Baptism of Fire or Crucible of Fire.
Why am I hemming and hawing?
I have a load of excuses this week.
But they are good ones!
My hunny has massive tooth pain and I am his nurse. And his stand-in mommy. Therefore...I can give an excerpt of Pyromage which I'm rethinking the title of. I having thoughts of what I want to do with it in terms of marketing. Okay I know that sounds like I'm writing a book based on the market, but I'm not...
I am a much more resilient writer than some may think. I also have a read-between-the-lines third eye. Everyone's comments have been helpful. Yes, everyone's. This does not mean I'm changing the story to everyone's whims. I am however taking into account consistent themes.
Here are some of the changes I need to make:
When a beta reader goes off on a tangent it's awesome. Not only do I get to torment, but I've given you the feels.
Torment might be the wrong word.
I really am a horrible person.
And I'm here to bring you all along for the ride. Point, laugh and say, "At least I'm not as bad off as you."
It's true. I went to Austin, the weird capital of the US, and even they thought I was too weird. *shrug*
So back to being grateful...
Without input writing can be a huge mirrored box. Over and over again. Beta readers help writers grow, stretch and learn more about themselves. So...thank you...for being tormented by a too weird for Austin pervert.
God, I hope my niece and nephews never see this blog (or come across my novels).
So that's it for the Seducing Sensei update.
On the Pyromage project I've gotten 17,600 words in a .docx file. I've got about 20 pages of notes/scenes in the livescribe book. So that's about another 5K. And I keep writing.
I've decided to do something different with Pyromage, but that is for another update. There is a reason why I was late with this update and I feel the hand of Editing (like the hand of God) pulling me back into the abyss of publishing. Troll River Publishing has a lot going on this month. You can take a look here if you want to see the newest releases coming out! Go ahead! A least those authors don't torment their beta readers...or do they?
