Eighth Day Genesis: A Worldbuilding Codex for Writers and Creatives

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , at 10:01 am by suepenkivech

Hi Followers!

As we all know, I suck at updating my blog.  So much so, in fact, that I neglected to advertise my latest publication “Eighth Day Genesis”, which was published last year by Alliteration Ink.  It was nominated for an Origins Award in 2013, and is now up for an ENnie at GenCon!

Want a free preview?  Alliteration Ink is, for a limited time, offering a .pdf containing three of the articles from the book.  Just follow the link http://bit.ly/8thdaygen to request your free copy!  If you’d rather read the whole book, you can order it there as well, as well as through Amazon.

Then, y’know, go and vote!

WIP Wednesday

Posted in 1 tagged , , , at 12:19 am by suepenkivech

A few weeks ago a friend of mine, KV Taylor started posting WIP Wednesday reports on her blog to track the progress she’d made on her newest novel.

Given that I tend to start strong and then trickle off for a few months, I’m going to give it a shot and see if it’ll help keep me on track!

From the Ashes is my newest work in progress, a science fiction time travel/romance story about a man named Mark who goes back in time to save his world – and to save his friend’s sister from herself.


5,756 / 80,000 words. 7% Complete!

Here’s a quick excerpt from Chapter 2, for your reading enjoyment:

“Leanne, I’m telling you, I didn’t do it.”

Leanne sighed and reached up to rub her forehead, oblivious to the way the motion left her reddish-blond hair in disarray, and tried desperately to suppress the headache she could feel inching its way up to a migraine. She’d been so lucky with Paul, in the year and a half since their parents had died – he was a good kid overall, and didn’t cause her any real problems.

His best friend, though-

“Mr. Piotrowski, we have witnesses who saw you with the can of spray paint,” the school principal said, leaning forward over his desk. He looked, Leanne decided, sort of like a pit bull – same skinny pinched face, same stubborn, ready to bite expression.

She’d never been fond of pit bulls.

Whew

Got a story in under the wire for Hadley Rille Books’ Destination Future anthology! Whoever said summer was supposed to be relaxing didn’t have two kids and a deadline for submissions!

Aaaanyway, now that that’s done I’m going to start querying out “Unnatural Selection” again. The rewrite went well, and I’m really happy with it this time – hopefully agents will feel the same! Gilly’s on hold until I feel like dealing with the pacing issues, so it’s time to start outlining the next book, a sort of science fiction/timetravel romance. Watch for more info here!

I borrrowed a new batch of genre YA books from the school library this week when I was catching up on my book processing, so new reviews should be coming soon, too!

Good News from Carnivah House

Posted in 1 tagged at 1:13 am by suepenkivech

Per an e-mail received yesterday, Carnivah House is pushing ahead with the publication of The Infinity Swords! No release information as of yet, but I love the premise of this anthology, and am really looking forward to reading the other accepted stories.

Details to follow once I have them!

Magical Mayhem

So, the first stand-alone story in the Gilly Oglethorp saga is making its way to a potential market today.

I’m excited about this. Gilly’s a lot of fun to write, and I love his supporting cast (now introducing Merdle the Incompetent Wizard).

Cross your fingers that the kids’ magazine I’m sending it to feels the same!
