Fantasy Indies January

Earthen Witch, Fiction, Photography, Random Thoughts

Heya Lovelies,

On Twitter, I’ve been taking part in my first-ever fiction prompt during the month of January. I’m loving it so far. Of course, I didn’t even realize that I wasn’t sharing the responses here, so I must remedy this problem.


But first, the prompts.


Rather than starting at day one and just being several days behind, I’m going to do a week one wrap-up. And then start tomorrow with daily posts. 

Day 1: Introduce yourself & WIP

I’ve always craved the escape books could offer me. That’s why I started writing adult urban fantasy romance.

I’m currently editing the 6th novel of my Earthen Witch series. It involves finding happiness and redemption, despite the darkness of the past.

Day 2: Goals for this year

My goals for this year:
– plot, draft, & edit new MS
– finish editing & publish 2 WIPs
– help friends with their book covers
– help friends with their editing
– read more indie authors 
– write and share reviews

Day 3: First line in WIP

Everything around me was shrouded in darkness, but somehow, I recognized what was happening. It wasn’t the first time and I knew it wouldn’t be my last. —from Stronger Than Blood, coming February 20.

Morbid fascination held me in its grip as I watched the melee in front of me. They were moving faster than my human eyes could follow, but I could see enough. —from Enduring The Flames, coming in August.

Day 4: Favorite writing quote

Everything you can imagine is real. —Pablo Picasso. 

Day 5: One project at a time or multiple?

With my own work, I only do one project at a time. Since it’s an ongoing series, I don’t want to mess up timelines. If I’m helping others with their projects (like book covers or editing) I can do more than one at a time. 

Day 6: Dangers/obstacles in WIP

Danger? Everywhere. The biggest being an antagonist trying to start a war over an old grudge, not caring who dies along the way. 

That, and the redemption arc in Enduring The Flames.

Day 7: Feature Friday

The first Friday feature feature has to be L. V. Russell — @fey_girl63 on Twitter. I finished Darling, There Are Wolves In The Woods a few days ago and LOVED it, along with the rest of the series. Click on the covers below to read the reviews.


There you have it. From here, I’ll share these little prompts daily.

Until next time,
Sarah

  1. These are awesome prompts! I enjoyed reading your answers to this group. Those two books you chose for Feature Friday look very interesting. I LOVE the titles. If I saw them in a bookstore, I’d pick them up to see what they were all about.

    1. Right?! I don’t like judging books by their covers, but sometimes I see one that catches my eyes and I stop to look. Beautiful cover, lovely title, and interesting premise—count me in!
