Camp NaNo Report: Day 20, and Chosen of Azara Revision Progress

The CFS (another post for another time) has really been dragging me down the last few days, so it’s been slow and painful. But progress is still happening.

The revision of Chosen of Azara is coming right along too. It’s been tough this week, then I finally realized what was messing everything up: the main secondary character in the Lucie story arc needs a complete personality transplant. The tense relationships between this character and the two main characters is one of the primary conflicts in that section of the book, and it just wasn’t happening. I’ve had a hard time pinning down this character, but I think I’ve finally got it figured out. I’m also rearranging some of the major scenes at the very end of the book, so once that’s done I’ll print out the Lucie section and go to work on fixing up that character. I don’t want to rush things; I want to get it right, so this most likely isn’t going to be a May release; I’m hoping for June, if all goes well once this major surgery is done.

Finally, I want to announce that a friend of mine who’s a very talented artist has opened an etsy shop: Motley Apricot Paintworks. Check it out for fabulous artwork, home decor, hand-painted wooden jewelry, and other wonderfully decorative and useful items.

Kyra Halland has always loved fantasy. She has also always loved a good love story. Years ago, as a new stay-at-home mom, she decided to combine those two loves - like chocolate and peanut butter! - by writing the kinds of romantic fantasy novels she wanted to read. Complicated, honorable heroes; strong, smart, feminine heroines; magic, romance, and adventure; deep emotion mixed with a dash of offbeat humor - all of these make up Kyra Halland's worlds. She loves sharing those worlds with readers and hopes they will enjoy her stories and characters as much as she does. Kyra Halland lives in southern Arizona. She has a very patient husband, two less-patient cats, two young adult sons, a lovely daughter-in-law, and an adorable granddaughter. Besides writing, she enjoys scrapbooking and anime, and she wants to be a crazy cat lady when she grows up. View all posts by kyrahalland
