Only 7 days to go until July’s Camp NaNoWriMo. (More info HERE, if you don’t know what that is.). I’ve been working nonstop on my novel, Love, Lies, & Clones since I started it in February. It’s currently in my beta readers’ hands, so I need a distraction… Something FUN.
Ten years ago or so, I started a story…. It was shoved in a drawer when the whole Twilight vampire craze hit. Who needs another vampire story, right?
Well, it turns out I do. The unfinished story has been nagging on me. I fell in love with the characters, and they are still insisting I tell the story. So, in July, I’m going to finally finish it! I could never get past the first act… But now… drumroll…. I have the whole thing outlined out. And not just one outline, but two!

And here is a screenshot of the full 27 page beast!
Now, I can’t wait until July 1st to start writing the story… Again.
Blood & Holy Water Blurb (Also updated my Current Projects page.)
2nd order angel, Ava, is sick of helping elderly women cross the street and strategically placing spare change where the poor can find it. She wants to be promoted to 3rd order angel and finally earn her wings. An angel promotion takes more than Ava’s hard work and determination – it takes a miracle – literally. Ava’s miracle is saving a fallen angel, one turned vampire 25 years ago.
Fin, the vampire in question, has a different agenda, no miracle needed, no helping a naïve angel earn her wings. He is busy keeping the Blood Board off his back. Fin has spent his entire time as a vampire avoiding his own kind, and now they are forcing him to work with them.
Ava can’t get a break, she is certain this miracle, just like all her miracles before, is a flop when she discovers Fin is impossible — his first killing as a vampire was his wife.
Just when Fin finally scares Ava away, he now frantically needs her because one of his secrets has surfaced. The human daughter he’s been protecting for 25 years is missing. Ava’s ability to detect truth and lies is exactly what he needs when dealing with vampires.
Ava is now busy with her own problems; angels have been turning up dead, drained of blood. It appears a vampire caused the deaths – the problem is vampires cannot see or touch angels. All vampires except for Fin…
