Last year for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), I churned out a 50k paranormal novel. That novel is still in need of revising. I think I will publish it eventually. But it needs LOT of work.
This year, I am not doing NaNoWriMo proper. But I did set a goal for the vampire novel I’ve been working on. I want to finish the first draft during NaNo (by the end of November).
The working title of the book is The Vampire Trackers. I designed the cover above just last week.
About the Book
I like to think that The Vampire Trackers is Catholic friendly (as opposed to just plain Catholic). I didn’t write it in order to share my faith. But I do try to hang on to my moral compass as I write and edit.
Writing about the paranormal without confusing good and evil can be tricky. Maybe it’s easier for writers who draw a hard line between right and wrong, like Stoker. But for me it’s a challenge.
So I am struggling a bit with the book and how to write it. But I’m still making my daily word count and doing my research and meeting with my critique group. And basically getting it done.
This post shares my new cover and my intention to get the current draft written by the end of November. I hope to share some of my research and a couple of excepts in the weeks and months to come.
Please wish me luck! Or, better still, remember me in your prayers.
