I went AWOL last Wednesday and missed posting a WIPpet since first joining the WIPpeteers back in February, although I did manage to get round to reading some of your WIPpets. I did, however, feature on someone else’s blog last week. The very lovely Leah Symonne who was my first interviewee for my 5 Minutes With… feature wrote up a lovely post along with some Q&As about The Butterfly Storm for her new blog. Leah is a young Canadian writer who’s just graduated from high school and has a bright future ahead of her. If you’ve got a few minutes to spare then please go check her out.
I’m getting about the internet this week too with The Butterfly Storm being featured on Chick Lit Central’s Book Shelf and a 4* review appearing on Chick Lit Plus yesterday stating, ‘If you are looking for a thoroughly detailed story of relationship trials, family trials, and decisions of the heart, then The Butterfly Storm would be a perfect book.’
Now to the WIPpet! It’s getting trickier to choose an extract from Time Shifters without any plot spoilers, so I’ve opted for short and sweet this week and chosen 22 words (in honour of the Royal baby being born on the 22nd) from chapter 24 for the 24th July. It would end up being a very long post if I set up this teeny tiny extract so all I will say is it takes place in 1666.
Floating in the middle of the Thames in a sinking boat with London burning behind us things could not get any worse.
Or could they?
The final edit of Time Shifters is going well and I’m over halfway through the novel, so I may just meet my target of getting it finished by the end of this month. Then it’s on with The House of Stone. Eek! A brand new novel!
Fancy becoming a WIPpeteer? Simply share a slice of your work in progress that somehow corresponds to the date (WIPpet maths is encouraged), or write an opening of a brand new novel and add your link to the linky that K L Schwengel hosts over on her blog My Random Muse. Happy reading.
