Satisfaction with a fight scene…

Published April 9, 2015 by S. E. Myers

There is something satisfying about sitting here and seeing my character kick some evil butt. However, it is extremely exhausting. By the end of the fight I feel as if I need to take a break. Andie limps away nursing her wounds and the other character is usually dead and/or apprehended.

When writing these scenes, I think of Jet Li or Jason Statham. I’m a fan of both and watching their movies (yes I realize the fight scenes are choreographed) gives me a little insight into how I need to frame the fight. Fast, Furious, little dialogue. Let’s be honest, who in their right mind will stop to speak a whole paragraph in the midst of fighting someone.

I was just thinking and wanted to take a break from my own fight scene and share.

Finally back on track…

Seriously, it has been a while. Moving to Lexington took a lot longer to settle than I initially believed.

Today is the first day that I am back to writing. It feels good. I am currently compiling my writing playlist. As the music plays the images run rampant through my mind. They unfold the story and I can see Andie react to her surroundings and other characters that she has a relationship with.

I’ll write more about that another time. I’m just glad to actually publish a blog piece considering that the last one I posted was forever ago. Luckily, I still have readers that follow my blog and follow my facebook page. Thank you for being so dang patient!

Lexington is beautiful! The air is clean, the grass is green and the people are so friendly. I love my new home and my neighborhood. We were very blessed for this opportunity to pop up in our life at the exact moment it was needed. It has been quite and adjustment. Staying home full-time is a lot more difficult than I remember. I was a stay-at-home mom years ago when my children were little. I assumed that since our children were older I would have more time on my hands to write full-time, boy was I mistaken. There are so many  more things that I have to accomplish and get done throughout the day. But, I am making it work. There are still several projects that need to be completed around the house, however, I am going to put those on the back burner until I have my first draft completed. Most of my day is dedicated to writing this first draft.

It feels good and I can’t wait to share it with you!

This is short and sweet, but I wanted to take the time to let people know that I am still here and still alive and working!

A sequel to Dark Revelation?

Published July 16, 2012 by S. E. Myers

Yes, most definitely! *nods head up and down*

Prospective title is “Dark Inhibition”, however, I am toying around with other choices for the name.  The opening scene has been written and the road is semi-mapped out.  This book will be longer than the first.  Some of the ideas introduced in the first book will carry over into the second.

I also want to write a prequel to include Tounala and Valen’s story.  The fall of the Sanctum, the taming of the imps, and background on each of the families.  I’ve started a family tree to include a pronunciation key for the names.

A short story is on its way as well.  That one will be free indefinitely on amazon.com and B&N.com.

I’m excited about the many possibilities on the horizon.  You should be too!
