Working on some chapters involving a feisty alien. May still change his appearance a bit, but this is the general idea. He’s super squishy, barely contained by his protective suit.

Remember when I was doing all of those aliens for the novel I’m writing? Well, these are a couple of humans from the first book.

As I may have mentioned, I’m trying to write a brand new novel during National Novel Writing Month (this month! you can check my progress here!). It’s eaten my days in the very best way. I have to reach at least 50,000 words by the month’s end. That’s over 1,500 words a day. So far it’s coming along nicely. I even reach my day’s goal early today, so I can think about other things for an hour before I go back and try to get ahead a little bit. While I have a few moments before a cloud of new ideas starts poking my brain, I wanted to post something. Anything. While I’m afraid to show my super-sketchy rough draft of a novel, I’m not afraid to show you what’s happened to me during the month thus far. It’s not pretty.
Note the permanent typey fingers, the sleep-deprived crazy eyes, the blob-like mushy feeling from not moving until each day’s goal is reached, and of course the paranoia that I will not make it to the end.

In 2009, I participated in National Novel Writing Month (unofficially). The outcome of that was Survivor of Ceres. Yeah, how cool is that? To celebrate, I created a coupon for the smashwords ebook version (which covers a wide variety of formats). Survivor of Ceres will be free on Smashwords for the entire month of November! Use coupon code: YL89C to get your free copy.
This year I will be participating again. Maybe even officially this time. Happy NaNoWriMo!

Yep. If you own an e-reader and are looking for some sci-fi action, now’s the time to check out Survivor of Ceres!
Oh! And the paperback version is about $10 on Amazon, if you like holding words in your hands.

What is that? A paperback version of Survivor of Ceres? An actual, physical book that has a texture and new book smell?
Yes! Yes, it is!
As far as I can tell, you can click this link and buy the paperback version of the book.
It’s not completely on Amazon’s main site yet. That’ll probably finish in the next few days. You can definitely trust Createspace, though. Amazon partners with them! Also, Createspace sites don’t take as much of the royalties, so they’re a bit nicer for authors.
* Friends and family can get it cheaper through me. Just ask!

My SoC proof just came in the mail! It’s so shiny I could burst! Look at it! Looooooooook!

Nothing too fancy, but go to the Survivor of Ceres website if you’re looking for free chapters to read or want to know where to buy the book. Within the coming weeks, I’ll probably add an art page to show some of the behind the scenes stuff I did to develop the book.

Looking for something to read? Do you have an e-reader? Well, look no further! My sci-fi novel, Survivor of Ceres, is now available through Kindle and Smashwords! Kindle handles… well… Kindle, and Smashwords handles prettymuch everything else (nook, kobo, stanza, etc.). I’ve added some links below. There will be a physical book as well, but that’s going to take a bit longer to set up. Just click one of the buttons below to go to that version of the book.
Oh! And if you’d like to read a PDF sample first, click here.

I’m a little stuck, and figured I’d post my thoughts. Prettymuch the same cover art posted previously, with a new question. ‘The’ or no ‘The’ in the title? Problem is, I love the way The Survivor of Ceres sounds, but I love the way Survivor of Ceres looks.
