It was a heck of a Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) this year. I started with hopes to complete the sequel to Becoming Bea and 50,000 words. I made it. Whew!
Now I have the daunting task of revision, and, believe me, there is plenty of it. First I went through Becoming Bea and made some edits and revision so that I could unite the trilogy I envision under a title. Since the books are soft Steampunk, I decided on Silk and Steel as a name for the series. The sequel’s title is Chasing Bees and takes place two years after Becoming Bea as my protagonist becomes a young woman and grows into her developing powers while on a summer course. She has to further reconcile her heritage and reconcile with events of her past as she gets to know Branwyn, the black sheep of the family.
As I learned with Becoming Bea, I need to do some tightening up of the work, then step away for several months before taking another look and further revise.
Becoming Bea is available on Amazon as a Kindle book or paperback.
