Wöchentlicher Check-in

Abgelegt unter: The Week in Review

Diese Woche stand unter dem Motto: “Mühsam nährt sich das Eichhörnchen, oder auch: Wenn man arbeitet, dann schreibt man nicht so viel”. Aber Kapitel Eins ist eindeutig auf der Zielgeraden, mir fehlen noch grob circa 600 Worte. Dann geht’s an den Feinschliff, dann an die Beta Reader, dann deren Feedback einarbeiten und daaaaaaann kann es am 15. Oktober endlich losgehen.[…]

Book review: When Dark falls, Pippa Jay

Abgelegt unter: Buchrezensionen

The blurp: In a city where Dark Technologies Inc. now runs the show, Kadie Williams has more immediate concerns than the fall of Blaze, their guardian superhero. Almost every morning for the last few months she’s woken up with cuts and bruises on her body, and no idea how she got them. There are no nightmares. No evidence that she[…]

Wöchentlicher Check-in

Abgelegt unter: The Week in Review

Es tut sich was, es tut sich was. Der zweite Draft vom ersten Kapitel ist fast fertig geschrieben, es wird also bald den Beta Lesern zur Kritik vorgeworfen. Kapitel 2 existiert zumindest schon mal in meinem Kopf und wartet darauf, als Draft zu Papier gebracht zu werden. Außerdem habe ich mich entschieden, ab dem 15. Oktober die Episoden wieder aufzunehmen,[…]

Ein neues Kleid für Himmelskratzer.de

Abgelegt unter: Author's Notes

Bis gestern habe ich ja geglaubt, ich sei absolut unfähig, für mich selber etwas zu entwerfen. Ist ja nicht so, als würde ich nicht mein Geld damit verdienen, aber mir ein “Branding” für Himmelskratzer.de auszudenken, war irgendwie nicht drin. Das lag zum einen daran, dass ich mir lange Zeit nicht sicher war, was ich überhaupt wollte. Dann stand mir auch[…]

Book review: Grimspace, Ann Aguirre (Sirantha Jax #1)

Abgelegt unter: Buchrezensionen

They always say you should read widely in the genre you want to write for. So I’m on a quest to read more Science-fiction with kick-ass female leads, preferably written by a woman. Genre: “Grimspace” is more Sci-fi romance than Adventure or Space Opera. Or, like one reviewer on Goodreads said: It’s Space Soap Opera. The blurb: As the carrier[…]

Daily Life of Spec Ops – A scene from the scrap pile

Abgelegt unter: Apples of Eden

It doesn’t matter if your job is to survive the daily craziness of an office or to save your kidnapped cousin from some goons, having a partner to rely on, lean on or simply talk to is the best thing. I always feel that commercial romance focuses too much on the sexual attraction between two people, and not enough on[…]

Conflict – A scene from the scrap pile

Abgelegt unter: Apples of Eden,The Vault

When you’re a cadet at the Academy, there isn’t much reason for conflict when you fall in love. Unless, of course, when author-god creates it. I ultimately decided against forcing conflict upon my two innocent little cadets. They should be allowed a time of happy butterflies to build a strong relationship that will be stable enough to withstand anything I[…]

This is not a game – A scene from the scrap pile

Abgelegt unter: Apples of Eden,The Vault

Before I decided to start at the beginning of Nate’s and Adelie’s relationship, before I took everything to the peaceful and sweet town of Meadow Junction, the main setting was a space station. The United Space Force was in constant conflict with their enemy, the Corporation. And Nate and Adelie weren’t fresh-faced, innocent cadets, but seasoned fighters with a generous[…]

An unexpected kiss – An Alpha & Omega out-take

Abgelegt unter: The Vault

If I’d collect all the first kisses I wrote between Nate and Adelie over the course of months and across different story ideas that ultimately ended up in the scrap pile, I probably had another book. Full of kisses, mmmmh! Anyway – this take on the first kiss was a little mean, because it happens in front of the other[…]
