March Round-Up

March has been a much better month for me personally and I’m slowly beginning to restart my routine. At the beginning of the month I set up kajoneswriting.co.uk, which isn’t quite finished yet. I still have to set up the world pages with lists of characters and links – which is something I have been putting off slightly. It seems like such a huge job. Towards the end of the month I found Scrivener and I’ve decided I’m going to purchase a licence because the set up is wonderful for the way I write. Due to those two outgoings I’m really hoping to make some money this month.

As usual I also posted March’s free story, which was: Introducing Marnie, from the Magi collection.

I finally finished posting December’s prompted stories: Becoming Human, for Aurora’s World; and Leap Year Proposal, for the Inquisition. I’m really sorry it took me so long to get the stories posted, especially as I enjoyed writing most of them. Due to the length of time it took me I have no idea who signal boosted, so please let me know as soon as you can and I’ll write the extra words for you. I also posted one story for the March prompt session: Freya’s Arrival, for the World Walkers collection. The rest of the stories for the collection will be posted by the end of April.

No donations were received.

Low signal boosting once more means that I’m not going to hold the draw again this month. As it was entirely my fault this month if anyone signal boosts during April they will automatically receive 1000 words per boost. Boost on three different platforms and receive 3000 words. A limit of ten boosts per person.

I’ve made a decision about the surprise draw. This month I’m not going to hold it again, but from next month I’m going to begin again. If you’ve won this draw and don’t want whatever it is you’ve won then it is possible to change it into something you do want or give the prize to someone else – all you need to do is let me know. Anyone who doesn’t let me know what they want to do by the end of April will forfeit their prize and I’ll give it to someone else.

Plans for April: finish off the website; do at least some of the editing I need to do – as I just transferred everything from one place to the other I didn’t do any editing; post some things up on the donor filter, because I’m reallty hoping to get some donors this month; and the normal monthly posts.

Goals for April: write at least 50,000 words and receive at least £50 in donations.

Collection Spotlight

This month the spotlight is on the Thear collection.

What do you want to know? Ask me questions about the characters, the places, the history of the collection or anything else you can think of. You can even ask the characters questions.  All answers will be posted under the collection spotlight tag and linked to under your question, because I don’t want the post to get too cluttered or for too many spoilers to be posted here.

What stories would you like to see written? Want to see more ofTrey? Interested in the deities? Then tell me here.

Character Spotlight

This month the spotlight is on Persephone, from the Deities World and Thear collections.

What would you like to know about my Persephone? Ask me any questions you can think of and I will endeavour to answer them. All answers will be posted under the tag character spotlight and linked to under the questions because I don’t want the post to get too cluttered or have too many spoilers posted here.

Tell me what stories you’d like to see. Would you like to see her interacting with other characters? What her life is like as a goddess?

Heliopath’s World: Introducing Kestrel (part 1)

Waking up was more difficult than normal. Kestrel blinked a couple of times before attempting to move. It almost felt like she had a hangover but she knew she hadn’t gone out drinking the night before. All she could remember clearly was going to the library in the neutral area because she needed a book for an assignment and then there was just a fuzzy blank. Slowly she sat up. At first she just wanted to lie back down to get rid of the headache. Then she realised that she was in a room she had never been in before. Breathing deeply she slipped off the bed, her unexpectedly bare feet touching carpet. There was no doubt in her mind that something bad had happened when she was in the neutral area because neutral didn’t mean safe. Nowhere was safe and she was sure she had been careful. Obviously she hadn’t been careful enough.
