Busy getting A Gingersnap Cat Christmas ready for print! In the meantime, I posted an excerpt on its book page–scroll down to the bottom to read it.
As previous reported, A Gingersnap Cat Christmas was written last year but didn’t get out in time for Christmas 2017. So once I was finished, I vowed to use the extra time before Christmas 2018 to turn it into a print book.
So here it is! Being worked on in the free program Scribus.
I’m sitting here realizing that it’s kinda wild that I went from knowing nothing about book production to, you know, making pages of a novel I wrote. When the proof’s actually in my hands, though, then I’ll know I can conquer the world.
The DuFresnes are gone.
The sheriff’s horse disappeared weeks ago.
Now the vampire that took them wants to chat…
“Growing Shadows in the Desert” is a short story by Danielle Williams, free on this website for one week only. Also available as an ebook through various online retailers.
Hi, everybody! Last week I hit 50K words on my nosferatu novel. Very exciting!
Since then a scene’s come up where a fire faerie needs to create some smoked glass for the nosferatu prince. Now, I don’t know the first thing about how you’d make sunglasses in the old days, so over the past day or two I googled up information…but it always stuns me how so much of the information and inspiration I need for any given book just…floats into my life.
Today the ocean of inspiration sent me a post from Gurney Journey that mentioned Lorrain Mirrors. When I clicked on the link, I got an entire article about darkened mirrors and smoked lenses used in the past, and a simplified way to make one.
Ain’t serendipity wonderful?
Hi, everybody! February knocked me down with a nasty cold/bronchitis illness so I’m still getting into the swing of things.
A Gingersnap Cat Christmas was finished, um…January, probably? And is in “post” so to speak. But since I missed my deadline, rather than releasing it right away, I’ll be looking into making it into a print book for next Christmas!
In the meantime, please enjoy the fabulous finished cover!
(My husband desperately wants me to animate the kitten rising up…Any volunteers?)
