NaNoWriMo 2k18

So, against my better angels, I’m doing NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I say against my better angels because I think there’s a lot about the way NaNo is structured that is exhausting and bad practices (no editing, 50k in one month, the idea of winning or losing/failing at writing).

I’m doing it my own way, which is to say I’m continuing to work on my current work in progress–a tale of love and espionage set at a video game company–rather than start something new. I’m going to go back and add in details or remove scenes as I see fit instead of not touching anything/no backtracking as in the “rules.”

I tell myself that it doesn’t matter how many words I get done, but if I’m being honest when I missed a day of writing yesterday due to family commitments I got stressed about it.

If you’re doing NaNo, add me–Delilah Night

For the month of December, I’ll probably only post 1-2 times a week so I can dedicate as much of my writing bandwidth to my novel as possible.

Welcome Back

I don’t know how to properly apologize for not doing anything with this blog for three years. Life happens, including procedures on my back that put me in a wheelchair for months and an international move back to the US. Work happens, including writing, selling, and seeing my first book published, more short stories, writing my second book, and planning my third.

But.

I’m back and I don’t plan on going anywhere. I’ve been reviewing books on my professional website, delilahnight.com,but I’ve stuck to my genre of romance, and the truth is that I read widely and would like to review widely as well. After meeting some book reviewers at a conference I was at this past weekend, I thought that what makes sense is for me to do reviews on both DN and here. I’ll do a lot of cross-posting, in part because readers here may like romances, and readers there may like other genres. Romance will get posted there first, then here a week later, and vice versa unless one of the two sites becomes much more popular than the other. I will also be giving books away, but plan to do that from this website.

I also want to return to Snarking Nostalgic. But with three websites/blogs to maintain, I’m not sure if I can do one a week. They take so much longer to write than regular reviews, and while worth it, I have to be realistic about how much spare time I really do have.

So, shamless self plug today, ARC of Night and Silence by Seanan McGuire review tomorrow.

Firstly, I have written a book, called Capturing the Moment, a contemporary set in Cambodia, inspired by a vacation I took there.

You never forget your first love…

Meg and RJ were passionately in love. But that was six years and a broken engagement ago.

Meg has only one day in Siem Reap, Cambodia, before she must leave for her sister’s wedding in Bali. She fulfills her dream of taking a photograph of the sun rising behind Angkor Wat, one of the oldest temples in the world. But her joy is short-lived when she turns around to see RJ standing behind her.

RJ threw himself into work after Meg ended their relationship. He’s built a successful business, but it’s a hollow victory. He’s come to Siem Reap to win back the woman he’s never stopped loving. But first he has to convince her to spend the day with him.

Meg is as physically attracted to RJ as she ever was. Maybe the secret to finally getting over him is a one day only, no strings attached fling.

Can RJ win Meg back, or will she love him and leave him?

If you would like a copy of the book in exchange for a review, leave me a message whether you want an e-book or a physical copy. It is erotic romance, so make sure that you like explicit sex.

Secondly, I have short stories in over a dozen anthologies between the ones in print and the ones I’m contracted for. See if any of them appeal to you, here. Depending on the book, I may or may not be able to get you a copy. Certainly I can get you anything published by Jayhenge–Other Days, Intrepid Horizons, or Myths Monsters Mutations. All of these are SFF primarily and non are erotica. All the other anthologies are either erotic romance or erotica.

Finally, welcome back. I hope you stick around. I plan to.
