You’re probably wondering, what the hell is Wyrd Blood? Wyrd Blood is what happens when I feel like I’m not scratching my world-building itch : ) Don’t worry, Ollie #3 is still coming!

Now, back to Wyrd Blood. What the hell is this new book/series about? Well, by now you all know how I enjoy wrecking worlds so it’s a combination of dystopian and epic fantasy. Of course you’ve also got some romance brewing as well because it can’t all be about destruction. The feedback I’ve gotten so far is that most of the readers who liked The Wilds will enjoy this as well.

If that isn’t enough to get your interest, I’m adding a first glimpse below : )

WYRD BLOOD

Prologue

Brief History of the World

In 1620 BC (Before the Change), magic sprang into existence. No one knew why or how this occurred, as there had never been magic in the world before. Some speculated that it was because of the dual eclipse of the moons. Others said it was because the planet shifted on its axis. But no one had any logical theories on why some people were gifted with magic, and others were not. Or why magic would skip several generations. The only thing that was brutally obvious to all was that magic was power and this was the beginning of a new world.

This first look was included in my last newsletter. Because I’m such a stellar marketer, a lot of people don’t realize I have a newsletter and wanted to know where they could get it. I figured I’d better post it here : )  For those of you who are interested in signing up, now that you know I have one, you can do it here http://eepurl.com/B0gm1 .

 

Chapter One

People always think they know what’s important. That it’s not something you need to spend hours debating. You just know. Or you should. I’d always thought I’d known.

When I lost my family, I didn’t need to think about how it was going to feel. It was instant devastation and it nearly broke me. According to some, it had broken me.

But I was realizing that sometimes you don’t know what’s important at all, not until you’ve really gone and botched things up so badly you aren’t sure if you can ever make things right.

These codes will work on any of my books so if you haven’t listened to The Wilds or The Hunt, definitely get those first. I’m pretty ruthless with not adding a lot of catch up in my books. These can not be experienced out of order.

If you want a code, message me at  https://www.facebook.com/Donnaaugustinebooks/ .  I used to do email when I did these giveaways but I think the messaging might be easier for everyone. (Plus Continue reading →

New Release! A Step into the Dark

10 comments

Categories: Uncategorized

Quick breakdown:

At 80K, it’s a full-length novel.

It’s the first book in a series.

It’s got a budding romance.

There’s mystery.

Description:

Kane says he can end my misery.

He says he believes in the monsters and knows they killed my family.

What he isn’t saying is how bad it’s going to get. That if I fulfill my part of the bargain and get him his information, I’ll be clinging to sanity by my fingertips.

Where do I get this intriguing book, you ask? Right now it’s only on Amazon but it will be available on other vendors this summer.

Amazon

And here’s the direct link for my more skeptical readers https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ND022NJ.

Things I Find Useful For Writing

2 comments

Categories: Uncategorized

There’s certain things I’ve discovered along the way that I find helpful in my writing process. I thought maybe one or two might of them might help others.

1. Vellum

This is an ebook formatting program. It used to take me hours and hours to format. Now I can load a book file and it will generate the format for all the different stores. Only thing it doesn’t format is the paperback but I hear that might be coming soon.

2. Scrivenor

This is what I use to write instead of Word. It’s great for people like me who write out of order.

3. Tea

This one sounds useless probably but there is actually a little psychology to it. I read somewhere (have no idea where anymore) that if you build up certain routines around the times you sit down to be creative, it helps trigger your brain that it’s time to get in that zone. I find that it works.

4. Writing in Spurts

I very rarely sit down and write for long periods of time. When I write, it goes more like this: write for fifteen, get up and pace, write again, make a call, write, take a shower, write… When I try and force long stretches without breaks, I don’t write as well.

5. Writing Out of Order

This one doesn’t work for a lot of people but definitely helped me. I never write a scene I’m not in the mood to do. I don’t care where it fall in the book timeline, I write the scene I’m feeling at that moment.

Good luck to everyone and may the words be with you!!!
