Okay, vampire story is moving along.
I think it’s going to be a series. No telling how many books. Series is The Liquid Diet Chronicles, this book is Bite Sized.
My character, Meg, knows nothing about being a vampire that she didn’t learn the hard way: anything with calories (other than blood) makes her violently ill…which she learned the hard way. She doesn’t have to kill (and won’t unless she’s attacked, or defending someone else from an attacker). She does investments from her home office for…individuals who prefer anonymity.
Her story about waking up dead is in Normalcy Bias. That story’s title is “Good Evening…This Is Your Wake Up Call.”
I’m having a lot of fun with all the snark, but it’s taking a really nasty, dark turn I wasn’t really expecting. Like serial killer dark. I don’t know exactly how I was expecting this to develop, but I really wasn’t expecting it to go this dark this fast.
I was, however, expecting the normal human sidekick. And her FBI agent fuck-buddy.
I do know the major events and approximately how they’re going to happen, but a lot of little details are catching me by surprise.
This one is fun. Even if I wound up cutting over 2000 words, writing 3000 more, then cutting another 3000 and writing 5000. So far, I’ve managed to get it back up to 18K words, and it’s not done for the day. And I’m less than a third of the way done with the first draft.
