Plenilune Cover Reveal

     As of today, Plenilune (Jennifer Freitag's latest novel) has a face to present to the public.  I am pleased to announce that, here and now, the cover will be revealed.  Would you like to see it?



     But perhaps you have missed my previous posts on Plenilune.  Perhaps you are looking at this cover and asking, "What is Plenilune?"  True?

     I am so glad you asked.  Here, for your benefit, is the synopsis:

The fate of Plenilune hangs on the election of the Overlord, for which Rupert de la Mare and his brother are the only contenders, but when Rupert's unwilling bride-to-be uncovers his plot to murder his brother, the conflict explodes into civil war.
To assure the minds of the lord-electors of Plenilune that he has some capacity for humanity, Rupert de la Mare has been asked to woo and win a lady before he can become the Overlord, and he will do it--even if he has to kidnap her.
En route to Naples to catch a suitor, Margaret Coventry was not expecting a suitor to catch her.

     "Why, that sounds fascinating," you say.  "But who is Jennifer Freitag?"

      Jennifer Freitage is a writer who has earned the title of The Penslayer among those who have read her work.  She has an amazing way with words...and sentences...and chapters...and stories.  Seriously.  You should check out her blog, ThePenslayer.  I have read one other book written by her (not related to Plenilune) called The Shadow Things.

     But, enough of my own observations, here is Jenny's bio for the book:

      JENNIFER FREITAG lives with her husband in a house they call Clickitting, with their two cats Minnow and Aquila, and their own fox kit due to be born early December.  Jennifer writes in no particular genre because she never learned how, she is made of sparks like Boys of Blur, and if she could grasp the elements, she would bend them like lightning.  Until then, she sets words on fire.
     Living with her must be excruciating. 

 

     Now that your curiosity about the author is somewhat satisfied, I expect you are turning your mind back to the story.  Very well.  Let's talk about planetary fantasy...because Plenilune is a planetary fantasy...and because 6 months ago, I had no idea what that meant.  Thankfully, Jennifer explained it in her own words on her blog.  So, if you want to know what sort of planetary fantasy Jennifer writes, check out this post.

     And now, perhaps, you have no other concern than to know when this book will be released so you can read it for yourself.

     The grand release date is...

OCTOBER 20


     Yes, we have but 2 weeks until Plenilune is out.  :)  In the meantime, check out the Goodreads page and mark off the days on your calender.  And don't forget to visit Jennifer's blog.  See you there!

Character Creation by Emily Ann Putzke
My character in Ain’t We Got Fun is Georgiana (Gi) Rowland, the older sister of Bess. Their family is struggling during the Great Depression, so Gi takes off for NYC to make a fortune and help them out. The sisters recount their adventures, joys and heartaches to each other. My co-author, Emily Chapman, and I wrote this story in letter form in January. Our characters are very different people! Here are a 5 things that helped me bring Gi to life, and give her a personality that’s all her own.
1.  Give Your Characters Flaws None of us are perfect, so our characters shouldn't be either. Gi is a fun, loyal, light hearted girl with big dreams. But she has a flaw that she struggles with throughout the entire story. Pride. She’s very stubborn, independent, and doesn’t want anything from anybody.
2. Use That Flaw to Stretch and Change Your Character Pride gets Gi in quite a few scrapes. Throughout AWGF, she’s constantly battling with it. Everytime she thi…

Is that a catastrophe happening, way over yonder?

The next scene in my story is meant to be an important one.  Readers get to meet the dwarves in their own evil lair.  My heroine is tormented for their selfish purposes.  Big scene.

     But when I started writing it, it looked incredibly detached and boring.  "Yeah, look over there.  See those dwarves by the table?  They are tormenting our heroine.  Very sad.  The cottage is cute, though."  The scene just wasn't working.  And my story has been sitting in stasis awaiting inspiration.

     Last night, I flopped on the floor to daydream and snuggle my dog.  For a while, I let my mind wander here and there.  But gradually I came to my senses and realized that the first thing I felt on "awaking" was the hard floor.

     Suddenly, I was Moriah, regaining consciousness.  Hard floor.  Noises.  Light.  Hands on my hair.  And the scene came alive for me.  I could hardly wait to get up and start writing again.

     So, if your scene is too detached, try lying on the…

Rooglewood Countdown: 9 1/2 weeks: Why Yours?

Yep, time is picking up speed.  Especially since I have other things to keep me busy.
     Here is my questions for you today: what makes your story special?  In the comments below, I want you to finish this sentence "It's a Snow White story, but..."  Did you change the setting?  Is Snow White the ugliest in all the land?  How did you swap out the elements of your story to make it unique?
