My 2021 NaNoWriMo Project

If you have been following me for some time now you know that I have been working on the same project for years, A Deadly Melody. It was to be book 1 of a four book series. I think it became a little too much for me to handle, writing a series, especially being my first go at a work of fiction. So, I have put that on the back burner for now. I’m sure at some point down the line I will pick it up again, but for now it is in the DNF pile.

For this year’s NaNoWriMo, I have decided to work on a brand new idea.

Moonshine & Murder

I’m really excited to start on this new project. From the title, which is still a work-in-progress, you can probably tell that it is going to be a Southern mystery. It will also include a bit of romance.

I can’t divulge too much about this novel, basically because it hasn’t been written yet, but the collage above gives you a general idea of which direction I think the story will go.
