As it turns out, fellow WIPpeteer Adrian Smith has a Book Tour taking place for the release of her book Forever Burn. I missed the boat on officially signing up, but I hear there’s a Rafflecopter giveaway going on, and if you’d like to read a review and a bit more about Forever Burn, wander on over to Sarah Hart’s Blog.
More news: I have it on good authority, the wonderful Kourtney Heintz (whose interview of me will post April 7th) is planning to review Emergence tomorrow. There have been quite a few good comments regarding Emergence this week, which really helps make up for some of the daily crap I’ve been dealing with. I especially like these kinds of tweets:
So, moving right along. That brings us to today’s WIPpet. No complicated math this week. For the 2nd day of April, two paragraphs from CBC in which Driev attempts to impart some of his vast *cough* wisdom to Gylan, aka ‘the boy’.
“Gylan…” I looked away, shaking my head. I had no idea what I wanted to say, or why I felt the need to say anything. I should have been on my way out instead of bandying words with a snot-nosed boy. “Look, I’m sorry I frightened you. I’m not a nice man, you’re right in thinking that, but not everyone who shows you a friendly smile is trustworthy. Sometimes they hold out their hand just to use it against you. I’ll never do that to you. Truth, I don’t give a rat’s balls if you like me or not. I don’t want to be your friend. But there’s going to come a time you’ll need to trust me. I’ve never lied to you, have I?”
He shook his head, his face scrunched in thought.
For a character who wasn’t even in the first drafts of this tale, Gylan sure has taken over. I’m just as helpless as Driev is where that boy is concerned. *shakes head* In case you’re interested in what inspires me while I’m working on CBC, who I would cast, what music reminds me of the characters, quotes, and any other assorted visuals, visit the ever-growing Coinblade Chronicles Pinterest Board. If you have any suggestions for the board, images or songs that put you in mind of Driev and his world, feel free to pass them along. The same holds true of First of Her Kind and Emergence ~just visit The Darkness & Light Series Pinterest Board.
I’m hoping…ho-ping…to have this tale finished by the end of May. Sooner would be better, but we shall see. Anywho, I’ll be looking for a few folks to read and shred. If you’re interested, let me know.
And with that, a bit of music that always puts me in mind of Driev, sadly enough.
“All the times
That I’ve cried
All this wasted
It’s all inside
And I feel
All this pain
Stuffed it down
It’s back again
And I lie
Here in bed
I can’t mend”
