blurb blurb blurb. blurb blurb. blurb

Posted by Necia Phoenix on February 12, 2017 in Writing |

I’ve been practicing writing blurbs and I think I need a lot more practice. I wanted to write one for BP. All day, yesterday I struggled with writing it, I read other book blurbs, I wrote up several versions and hated them all because I felt so lost. Then a couple dear friends, including J.A. […]

Happy Imbolc

Posted by Necia Phoenix on February 1, 2017 in mental illness, Patreon, Real Life, Writing |

  January was a difficult month. I’ve seen over and over on FB, Jan was the trial month, Feb is when 2017 ACTUALLY starts. Something I really can’t argue with. This morning, as I was coming home from grabbing a quick (and unhealthy) bite to eat I got bushwacked by an idea for the Avaria […]

Zander snip

Posted by Necia Phoenix on May 28, 2014 in snippage, Tuesday Links |

So in an effort to beat back a case of melancholy I wrote this for Z1, enjoy;   “More patrols. You know, when the horn sounded I thought we’d be under siege. The Zarconis haven’t even peeked out of the forest yet!” Kerul complained. Zander glanced towards the smoking ruin of the forest. There were […]

Re-Release

Posted by Necia Phoenix on February 26, 2014 in publishing, Real Life |

One of the greatest things about self pubbing, is if you need to change something, you can. If you don’t like the cover, you’re not stuck with the pubbing co going SOL. The Magic Maker is one of my favorite stories, and the first of what I hope, many set in that world. To date […]

Still here

Posted by Necia Phoenix on January 28, 2014 in publishing, Real Life |

I have been sick, still trying to get writing stuff handled. Zbk1 edits are in full swing, shooting for an April 12 release (my birthday). I have some awesome betas who are giving me great input. Have a mini snippage:   Valen handed Zander a small sphere with odd indents and markings on it. Zander […]

2014 Goals, Plans, and Expectations

Posted by Necia Phoenix on January 1, 2014 in publishing, Writing |

A new year, new goals. I’ve made up a tentative publishing schedule for this new year, starting with the goal of one new publication (large or small) a month with three large releases for the year. We’ll see how it goes. Goals are dreams with a date on them they say. And I’ve even taken […]

December is here

Posted by Necia Phoenix on December 7, 2013 in NaNo, Real Life, Writing |

Where did the year go? Rhetorical question, I’m not expecting an answer :P. So I did hit the nano words and my brain decided that Dmitri was going to go to sleep and Zander promptly started whispering at me. 0.o Something that I noticed, post nano. I don’t seem to have the post nano brain-dead. […]

Wednesday

Posted by Necia Phoenix on October 16, 2013 in Writing |

It never looks right when I write it out.* I’ve been plugging away on all sorts of things, bouncing around with RL stuff and writing projects that I keep forgetting to get over here to get a post up. SO, projects; Zander book one, roughly done. There are a few things I need to go […]

Epiphany

Posted by Necia Phoenix on October 3, 2013 in Writing |

One of my favorite unfinished novels takes place in the Zander world. Titled Velvet and the Shadow, it’s a love story of sorts. One problem I had was that the story fizzled after about… 30 or 40k. The characters kinda fell together too easily. At the time I couldn’t figure out why and I set it aside. […]

How the Myths still affect us

Posted by Necia Phoenix on October 1, 2013 in publishing, Real Life, Web Site stuff, Workshops, Writing |

This post was inspired in great part by Kristine Rusch’s post Story Demands. For years I had this dream of publishing the Zander books traditionally. I pictured them on a bookshelf in a bookstore, I would even go to waldenbooks and find where my name was and kinda scoot the books around so there would […]

Some things

Posted by Necia Phoenix on September 6, 2013 in Writing |

Take a moment, watch this. As a writer, think about what it is you’re doing.   I don’t know about you, but this is my favorite scene from that movie. As a kid I would sing this song as I led our family dogs through the backyard and into a world of imagination. As I […]

Another snip and a new minor character appearing ~ The Starcatcher

Posted by Necia Phoenix on July 26, 2013 in snippage |

Ok, was writing and this scene…totally unplanned, just exploded into my brain.   ~*~ The floor was a checkerboard of marble, the pale white blocks looked like clouds, just hovering beneath their feet. As they passed over the darker marble Zander glanced down and froze, heart pounding in his ears. There were faint sparkles on a […]
