How’s Your #NaNoWriMo Going?

Who’s participating in Nano?

**waves hand wildly**

How are things going for you?

I’m having a blast with nano. We meet on Twitter under the hashtag #NanoBots all the time for sprints. So far, the words have been flowing freely, so I’ve been writing every free minute I have outside my day job.

It’s funny, because on the nano site, you’re supposed to put in a title and little description on what you’re writing. 

I had neither.

For this year’s Nano, I am writing the sequel to Forged By Fate. Remember that one? You all helped me find a title?

Yeah, I often don’t have titles, or even character names while writing books. I just run with it. And during the writing of this sequel, book THREE has popped into my head as well.

So I’m going to just keep writing as long as the words flow. 

How is your Nano going? Not doing Nano this year? What’s on your plate? Or maybe you’re a reader. Are your favorite authors participating in Nano? What books are you hoping they’re writing sequels to? 

Need your help…

Titles stump me. Even more than writing back cover blurbs. So, I need your help!

I’ve got a new project (not contracted or anything, just a work in progress) and I need a title! Now, if this is just a working title. If it ever got published, more than likely the publisher would change the title or tweak it, but still. It’s nice to have a working title instead of “Theo and Sadie” which I’ve had for about five months now. LOL!!

Okay, ready? Here’s the “blurb” (it’s a work in progress as well)

More Than Ready

Theo Bradford is a Gatekeeper to Hades tasked with retrieving the evil that seeps out. He’s waited over nine hundred years for his mark to surface on his mate’s body, calling him to her. When it finally happens, a vicious demon he sent to Hades months ago somehow defies the binding vanquish and returns, setting his targets on the female. If Theo can’t connect with his mate, he’ll never gain the strength needed to protect his fated love from the demon’s wrath or defend the Gates of Hades.

Can’t Fight Fate

Graduating college in two years was easy for eighteen-year-old genius Sadie Nowland. But explaining the mark that appeared on her shoulder four days ago has her stumped. Then, a mystery man shows up and claims the mark identifies her as his mate, catapulting her neatly laid out life into chaos. The more time she spends with him, the harder it is to deny their connection – a connection her brain can’t comprehend and her body can’t deny. And that primal bond proves more imperative to their survival than either could ever imagine.


I know the blurb isn’t much to go on when it comes to figuring out a title, but give it a shot. I came up with a few during a little brainstorm: The Veil, Bound by Fate, Veiled, Keeper of Hades, Gatekeeper, Devoted, The Keepers, Marked, Valor, Fortitude, Fury, Brewing, Out of Time…

See, I told you titles weren’t my strong point. . . Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
