bannertheme1

Welcome to a new, possibly weekly feature of my blog… Writing Prompts! Each week, I’ll share 7 writing prompts. Use one a day, or choose your favorite to develop into a full-fledged novel.

Week One’s Theme, Returning from the Dead. Whether as a zombie, revenant, or ghost, death cannot stand in the way of your character’s desires.

  1. Write about a protagonist that has just died. The catch? He/She had just met his/her soulmate. And death won’t stand in the way.
  2. Write about a protagonist raised from the dead by science, returned to his/her family. The catch? He/She doesn’t remember them and wants to enjoy his/her second chance.
  3. Write about a dead assassin brought back by a necromancer for a second chance. He/she better not fail again…
  4. Write about a group of friends during a zombie apocalypse, trying to live normally and deal with life, jobs, and love.
  5. Write about a revenant vigilante, trying to clean up the crime in his/her town. The catch? His targets must die for him to live.
  6. Write about a parasite that reanimates corpses. The reanimated seem normal, at first…
  7. Write about a group of strangers brought back from the dead for a fight. The last zombie standing gets to return to the world of the living.

Like them? Have inspiration? Did you use any of them? Let me know in the comments.

AWtrilogycover

What do you do when pirates kidnap you for a ransom and a mad scientist injects you with a powerful and inevitably fatal concoction of aether?

You get revenge. 
Matilda Katrine Myra is no one special, but her pirate abductors don’t know that. When they boldly kidnap her from an airship and sweep her away into the deadly wasteland of mutants and poisonous radiation, her life becomes a day to day battle to evade death.

And she’s much closer to death than ever. A mad scientist has injected her with toxic condensed aether, the air of the gods, and now she’ll need frequent doses just to survive each day. With a dwindling supply, she’ll have to battle mutants, mad scientists, pirates, and the spirits of the dead.

The tool of her fate, a gauntlet feeding the condensed aether into her veins, is also a potent weapon. It can focus the aether into a death ray. She can also see the dead, women who suffered the fate Matilda is fighting to avoid.

Along with a wasteland traveler and his clockwork dragon as her only allies, and despite the powers gifted to her by the aether, the one thing she doesn’t have is time.

With passion and intrigue, adventure and swashbuckling in an apocalyptic world, Apocalypse Witch is a dystopian steampunk adventure of non-stop excitement. This novel collects the three books of the Apocalypse Witch Trilogy, Apocalypse Witch, Memento Mori, and Shadow Falls.

Jump on over to Amazon and grab your digital copy! The paperback will be out in a few weeks.

Monday Update #3

52 Books in 52 Weeks – Week 3

tumblr_mpa1vstnbl1rb324eo1_500I am writing/releasing 52 books in 52 weeks. Week two is over. Week 2: 1 book written. I finished Soul Sister on Friday. I’m making a few changes for the second draft. It will go through my proofreaders one more time (hopefully) and it’ll be released (again, hopefully) this week. I’m very excited to share it with you. It’s my favorite story from my muse so far. Words Written Last Week: 11,882. Average: 2,376 a day across 5 days. All of my time went to finishing Soul Sister. Week 2 of 52: 3 written, 2 published.

This Week’s Projects

  1. Get Soul Sister polished and beautiful and released.
  2. Finish Apocalypse Witch Book 3.
  3. Spilling Blood Season 2 needs a paperback edition… STILL!!!

BONUS!

This isn’t really a bonus, but a reminder. Did you know you can still read Death Storm (Hungry Gods Book 1) for FREE? I’m just throwing that out there because you’ll be seeing Book 3 in about two months and that will give you time to read the first two books with very little wait for the conclusion. You can find Death Storm at any of your favorite ebook distributors. It’s everywhere, seriously. cover-teaser

DEATH’S REACH

The zombie apocalypse continues as the survivors search for a place of refuge. Things have gone from bad to worse, with even the gods succumbing to the curse.

Taegar never saw himself as a hero, and certainly not a leader. His allies are a mixed bunch, composed of a little girl and her zombie brother, a blind and crippled elf, a rogue, and a young woman that can’t return his affections. Though their differences threaten to tear the group apart, only by staying together can they survive.

Their goal is to reach Levia, the city of wizards, hoping that such a place would have withstood the undead horde. Between them and their destination is a dying world full of new horrors and nightmares as the curse expands beyond humans. And what awaits them in Levia? Has it truly survived the madness of the zombie apocalypse?

Meanwhile, the goddess, Death, embarks on her own journey to reach the underworld and fulfill her destiny. Her companion, a man thought lost to primordial spirits, carries within him a curse all his own.

Death’s Reach is book 2 in the Hungry Gods series, and the sequel to Death Storm, a Dark Fantasy Zombie Apocalypse that brings the nightmare of Armageddon to a high fantasy world.
