#Row80 an update

Okay I completely forgot to post an update this week and the last I think, so here it is. I’ve hit the ultimate block. I’ve decided not to continue The Raven’s Kill in another story, at least not yet. My flirt, which can be found here (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Touch-Death-Witch-Book-ebook/dp/B00LWSOBS6/ref=sr_1_7?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1408194054&sr=1-7&keywords=ella+grey) hasn’t been selling very well, so instead of continuing it as a flirt series, the story will be finished and submitted all together. I did enjoy writing the story but I can understand why someone might be reluctant to buy a short story for 77p.

I’ve started doing writing projects to get my muse back into the zone and started writing last night, I’m hoping this story becomes something/anything but an unfinished piece of work.

I’ve got two stories that should be released at some point this year, but besides that nothing close to finished. That thought is a little bit depressing. That also makes my goal for this week pretty damn simple.

1. Keep writing.
2. Aim for 2k every day.
3. Hit 10k this time next week. I think the story I’m currently working on is about 20k but we shall see.

#shifter stories still on #sale

Saving Kat

Adam Reece, Alpha of The Black Paw Pack, follows all the rules but he can’t resist teasing Katherine Moon. Pack law frowns on wolves and witches mating so the resident Earth Witch has become his friend and confidant, nothing more.

Life is good. Kat’s blessed by the Goddess who connects her to the earth and the wolf pack she watches over, even the Alpha who only seems happy when he’s pestering her. But she wants more—namely the forbidden attention of a certain steadfast Alpha with a boyish grin. Too bad crossing that line isn’t an option.

When a tragic accident threatens to steal her from him forever, Adam must make the hard decision—save Kat or lose her forever, even if she never forgives him.

Guarding Mari

Three years is a long time to be away from your mate.

Mari was a doctor before she was infected with the werewolf virus, a target of a deranged serial killer. The night held one bright moment. She met Daniel Greyborn, the other half of her soul. But she’s been living a half-life away from him.

Daniel wants a lifetime with his mate.

Daniel made a difficult decision when he left Mari with the Black Paw Pack. When he finds a body on his compound, he knows that Ryback is back and it’s time to finish what happened three years ago and reclaim his soul.

Are they about to underestimate a killer?

August is SHIFTER MONTH

I spent my childhood summers at our family cottage on Coldwater Lake in Michigan. A friend of my uncle’s and a member of the local Chippewa tribe rented the cottage next door for several summers. Indian Dave would thrill my cousins and me with legends and dances of his people. He taught us the importance and spirituality regarding the balance of nature. My favorite stories of people who could shift from human to animal at will influenced me to write my own versions. My cousin and I would often wonder if the fox or eagle we saw where Indian Dave or one of his friends. Who knows…perhaps they were!

Little did I know, those stories heard around a campfire would become fodder for the Legend of the Spirit series.
Legend of the Spirit book 1 – Crow Magic
Lucy Richards is tired of being timid around men. Hoping to overcome her fears and feel like a real woman, she turns to Madame Eve to find a man who will fulfill that goal. Eve arranges a one-night stand with a handsome Shawnee shaman who will teach Lucy to use her womanly power and take her to unimaginable heights.
Shape shifter Seth Crowe is a Keeper of the Spiritual Law who carries souls from darkness to light, and enjoys using his body to accomplish his magic.
Tucked away in the Castillo Poconos Resort, Seth helps Lucy find spiritual and sexual freedom, never dreaming he might find his own mate in the bargain.

Legend of the Spirit series book 2 – Eagle Dance
Dyami Schafer, a Native American from the Chippewa tribe, leads a lonely life due to his large size and unusual appearance. When his nesting instinct sets in, he turns to Madame Eve and 1Night Stand to help him find his spirit mate. Or at least a woman who accepts him as an eagle shifter.

Amanda Collins never stopped loving the Chippewa boy she knew from her childhood. Maybe a night with a Native American man will help her forget the past and let her move on with her life.

Sometimes, it’s necessary to take a step into the past before dancing into the future. With the help of Madame Eve, will the Spirit of the Eagle carry Dyami and Amanda?

#ROW80 Update

Good Morning, Afternoon and Evening, ladies and gentleman on the internet…(coughs and wriggles her lips) hmmm seemed to have started channelling my old English teacher there for the moment. What do I have to tell you this week, did you know there’s an actual eel called a snot eel? Okay its a nickname but still that’s a little bit disgusting. Me and the little monster got a book from the library, a little bit like the Guinness Book of Records but it covers the fastest animal, the slowest, well you get the idea. I also stocked up on comics and manga, some for the book and the manga mostly for me. I’m currently reading Vampire Knight, I originally watched the anime but it was such a long time ago and I do remember liking the story.

Okay, back to the update.

1. I’ve managed to get back into the writing saddle and I’m back to 2k a day, unless a family event happens and even then I try to fit in some writing.
2. I submitted a story, the 2nd instalment to my Death Witch flirt series. This one has nearly double the word count and if the editing gods are kind I’ll find out if its been accepted soon.
3. I haven’t written anymore to the sequel to The Raven’s Kill and I’m not sure if I’m going too.
4. I wrote some words for the next planned self published story but I’m not sure where they are going, its only 2k so far and I refuse to panic about it just yet.
5. I had a release, Guarding Mari and last time I checked its still on sale on Amazon.
6. Tomorrow I will be sitting in a dark cinema and watching Guardians of the Galaxy because I’m thirty years old and more than capable of watching a movie by myself.

The next big plan is to write a standalone shifter story. I have a few on going series but its always nice to shake things up once and awhile. (glances at the clock on her computer) half ten, really? I better get back to writing. I’ve also got a Dakota Cassidy story on my kindle I want to get back to.

Bye all. Until next week.

#ROW80 midweek update

Yes I know it isn’t actually midweek but since I started this last Thursday. I figured Thursday will be my update day. So lets see, what did I accomplished this week?

1: I finished two rounds of edits for my young adult release, if you want a peek at the cover you can find it here. https://www.facebook.com/samanthaallard83?ref_type=bookmark I don’t know when it’ll be release but I’m hoping late August, early October.
2: I’ve finished the rewrite for the steampunk. It was essentially rewriting the beginning to make it flow better and adding in scenes between Winifred and her brothers. I’m going to give it one more look through and send it off to the publisher. I’ve also seen a cover to that as well but since it wasn’t the final cover. I’ll wait until I get the okay.
3. I’ve been thinking a lot about the next story, whatever I work on next. I’m still thinking. I haven’t had an idea that sticks in mind for a while. It could be the heat since my brain seems to go into hibernation when it gets too hot or my muse might be on strike. Either is a distinct possibility. My word court has also suffered.

two out of three isn’t bad but at this rate I’m not going to have many releases out this year.

A Ritual

I have a ritual, something I do whenever I get a new notepad or a computer. I open up a file or run my hand over a fresh sheet of paper, pick up a pen or position my fingers and I write out my bibliography. Besides those words in my banner, I’ve never made a public note of it. So here it is.
