Dear ,

So, last month was a little bit of a confession, I suppose, but apparently it was just the kick I needed to give myself.

I'm happy to say that through a priority shift (putting writing first on my to-do list every day), I've made a ton of progress this month. I went from almost 60,000 words in the Revelation of the Dragon first draft to my current word count of 73,467. 

When the first draft is done, I plan to work on the cover and a couple of short stories before diving into revisions and editing.

Have you ever been in a similar situation? Where you felt that you weren't getting anywhere with something you really wanted to do? What gave you the kick you needed, and how did you keep your motivation moving? 

I'd love to hear from you (just hit reply, and your message will come straight to me).

Until next month.

From my world to yours,

J. Elizabeth Vincent

Long Paradise by James Murdo

An ancient mystery has returned.

Everyone wants to survive.
Everyone wants answers.

The Outer Layer is an enigma to its residents. Representatives from countless races and civilisations wander the many territories, hoping to unlock the secrets and progress further into its depths.

An anomaly has been detected in space by an artefact from an extinct civilisation. Ciqalo, a machine intelligence from the Wanderer civilisation, is tasked with leading the investigation in the hope of weaponizing it for a galactic war.

Beatrict and Gerstial are leaders of the Alexis-Meld – a prominent Roranian collective. They control their commercial interests from the idyllic homeworld of Lillea, and expect rule of the meld to be passed to their heirs, Beatrict II, Gerstial II and Philsima. Unfortunately for them, life is never so simple. Tolren, playmate of Gerstial II, becomes a hunted fugitive, and finds himself thrust into an adventure aboard a structure in space that defies all understanding, alongside Seremend, a fellow Roranian. While the relationship between them intensifies, they race to comprehend the complexities of their new home and why they have been chosen. What is the purpose of it all?

Rise of Gaia

Our world is not all that it seems in this YA SciFi-Fantasy!

Beneath rock and soil, trees and oceans, she lies.

Under concrete jungles and poisoned rivers, she slumbers.

She is Mother Earth.

And mankind has turned its back on its mother.

The visions begin on Terran’s seventeenth birthday. Horrifying images pummel her brain, while a voice commands her to see beyond the world she thought she knew and into the heart of it. Gaia has awakened, brought to consciousness by the greed of a species that has tainted every aspect of her being in a tide of indifference. With this awareness, comes rage. Gaia calls upon her children to unleash her fury, wreaking vengeance on humanity.

Terran will emerge in a world on the brink of collapse, to face a being whose wrath is beyond imagining.
