Word Counts and Part Reflection

bookthreeupdate

Almost done part one… I know I said that last time but my Gods it is taking longer than I planned. Still, I am proud to announce that I’m at 19k… which is 9k more than my last update.

I also got an amazing image drawn of the new Six – Gornard Stoneborn (AKA: Red) – who you will get to meet in the new book. He’s interesting and I can’t wait to explore his character further once I get to the part he enters. That… will likely be in a few more weeks. Here is the image of him:

He was drawn by the very talents Masha (here information found HERE). Masha has been my go to artist for all my other Six concepts (Liora and Emery). I have nothing but praise for her talents and can’t wait to have her draw my other three members once I get working on their books.

Oh! I also reached 130 followers on Instagram. Fun… since I have only started regularly posting on that. It has taken me a while to get an grasp on what I should be sharing and I still have little ways to go before I’m at my personal goal. I also need to find ways to boost my book exposure on Amazon, so if any of you have suggestions leave them in the comments below.

I think that’s about it for now…

Weekly update out!

Until next time – toodles!

Expanding the world of Gaitan one story at a time

bookthreeupdate

So, I’ve realized that I write a lot that doesn’t make it into the books I publish. These could be scenes that I’ve cut out, or scenes I’ve created that just never make it to the final draft. I have even written small stories about the adventures of characters that will never be granted the pleasure of being part of the Prophecy Six Series asides from being briefly mentioned in one of Liora’s books of choice in some random chapter.

That changed today.

As I was working on book three – SoLK – I came up with an idea for a short story that followed Liora and her interactions with the Southern King’s dragon. For those that know, Liora is an animal person. She fell for the feathery bird-lions of the north and grew up with the scale wing snakes of the south. No creature can escape Liora’s desire to show them love, no matter how hard they may try. That is why I had to write this short story… which had now led me to a rabbit hole that I cannot escape from.

I know I should be working on SoLK, and I’m almost done Part One, (super psyched about that), but these short stories are opening my mind to the world I created in a whole new way. I’m learning the history of the world and how certain cultures were shaped. I’m taking key figures mentioned in the books, (Evrin, Berk, Kanrow, and of course Har), and turning them into stand alone adventures away from the P6 Series. I’m exploring personalities and places that I never would have imagined, all because of the idea of writing short stories.

I don’t know where this is going to go, but I’m having too much fun to stop.

Anyways, back down the rabbit hole I go! XD

Until next time – toodles! ^.^

I’m Back – With An Update!!!

Oh my Gods!

What has it been… a month? Two Months? It feels like a lifetime since I last posted on this blog. Don’t worry, I have my reasons…

I was suffering from a bought of creative burnout. Yes, that is a thing and I’ll tell you how/ why it happened.

After getting a creative intensive job focused towards blogging, social media, and marketing I didn’t have the energy to come home to do that for my own projects (bad I know). I was used to having jobs focused towards accounting and administration work that focused more on number crunching, allowing for my evenings to be the time I could be creative. With a job that focused on thinking outside the box and finding ways to work creatively to promote various businesses I couldn’t find the power to go home and do the same.

Now, that overload of creative usage is coming to an end!!

With a new job on the horizon I will be able to focus my time between math during the day and creative expression in the evenings. This means posting on this blog more often and working on building my author/ book platforms. I will not be posting every day on this blog like I had in the past, but instead focusing on Dialogue Prompts, short stories, and post updates for my other platforms.

So, to break down the plans on what I’ll be doing for what sites here is a list:

Prophecy Six Blog (this site) is going to be focused towards sharing posts from my other platforms, poems/ photography/ recipes, dialogue prompts, and important updates. (Monday and Friday)

Prophecy Six Series Official Site is focused towards world building for my book series, fun updates about the world or books, my store, and any lovely P6 creations my readers may want to share with the online community. (Wednesday)

Deanna Wiltshire Official Site is focused towards fun facts about me (the author), other writing projects I have in the works (fairy tale retelling, paranormal fiction, children’s book, etc.), tips and tricks when it comes to writing, my store, and book reviews of indie-authors/ Canadian Authors. (Tuesday and Thursday)

Getting these up and running will take some time but I appreciate the patience you have given me so far. I miss writing for all of you and hopefully soon, I’ll be back to my regular writing mood.

Toodles for now!

Deanna

UPDATE: Release Date, Official Site & Special Offer

Hello Everyone,

I am hopefully going to post a monthly update from now on. I aim to release these updates the first of every month to let you know about upcoming posts, information pertaining to the Prophecy Six Series, changes in the schedule, and you know… some special offers that you may be interested in, (like at the bottom of this post…)

So, let’s get started:

Upcoming Posts!

As some of you have noticed I have started posting some recipes and my photography on this blog. My goal is to turn Prophecy Six Blog into a place where I can share all my hobbies with you such as my cooking, photography, and DIY projects along with keeping it as a hub for my sharing my writing.

With work and managing several sites online I found it was time to accumulate everything into one ‘mega’ blog in hopes that some of you are interested in what I have to post.

Another series I’m hoping to bring back is Prompts, which I aim to put out every Monday.

The Schedule I have planned is:

MondayWriting, Dialogue, or Character Prompts

Tuesday – Photography, recipe, or DIY

Wednesday – Prophecy Six Focused (Character build, themes, images, book bits).

ThursdayThinking Thursdays

FridayOld Word Friday

Saturday + Sunday – Recovery Days or Special Announcement Days

And yes, before you say it, I know I’m crazy… but that’s part of being a writer.

Prophecy Six Series Announcement:

Today marks only 20 days until book two – Children of Sirphan – is released. I’m so excited I’m just jumping with glee.

As the book is being released I have made some major changes to the Official Book site. Such as:

Updated the About Author’s Page, Layout of the Website, Organization of the site, and Character’s of the Series Pages.

What I have recently added to the site are new location information, information pertaining to the Gods, what the series is about, a contact page, and a subscription page.

Why should you subscribe?
Because the first 50 subscribers it a free e-book version of the second book! I will go into detail about this closer to the release date but you can go to the site now, sign up and you would have reserved a free copy of Children of Sirphan. Subscribers also get updated once month about special events and offers before those who aren’t subscribed, meaning you’re more likely to get the offers before they run out. I’d sign up if I wasn’t the moderator. XD

Anyways, I think I’m done for now. I will be posting another update on December 10th, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Until next time stay safe, get creative, and as always toodles! ^.^

Official Website Update: Groups

Hey Everyone,

Yesterday I worked more on the official canon website found HERE. This time instead of updating the map I decided it would be interesting to update one of the groups that you will likely come across in the upcoming books. If you are interested in learning more about the Hanging Boatmen CLICK HERE – if not continue on as you were. 🙂

That’s all for now. Toodles. ^.^
