I met a few of you at the kick off.
I’m Lori. I write dark fiction and Halloween is my favorite flavor of holiday decoration. I don’t get online every day, busy life and all.
You can find me on NaNoWriMo under my published name: LV Gaudet
Are you ready for thirty days of obsessive writing? One of the tools I like to use is mocking up a book cover for inspiration. A visual of the literary feel of the story.
For those who don’t know what it is, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. For the month of November you pledge to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Yeah, we’re nuts. We are writers. There is a wine that goes nicely with that.
I had to look back on my Nano books to figure out this is my 8th year. Oops, I was a year off tonight. I won three of those years.
Here are my NaNo creations in chronological order:
Garden Grove – Self published.
Untitled – I will come back to it.
The McAllister Farm (winner!) – Published by Indigo Sea Press, a small indie press in the US.
Blood (winner!) – Based on the short story. I will finish it, but it’s getting weird.
Butterflies in the Garden (winner!) – Needs a do over and I vote this worst ever mock cover. This will eventually be published under my alter ego to frighten the middle years/teens.
Old Mill Road – Still a work in progress. On the back burner. I’m still looking for the old Mill Road monster.
Nathan – Yeah, and then there is Nathan. Nathan was born in Hunting Michael Underwood. But, he wouldn’t stay there. I only made 9000+ words and gave up. But, the voices in Nathan’s head are still there. They will get out. Run.
And this year’s Nano is Killing David McAllister. Fourth book in the McAllister Series and it will be the final. Hunting Michael Underwood was supposed to be the last, but the story was not done. Well, except for the spin off. White Van. That was not a NaNo book. I will get back to it.
If you find me on Twitter (@lvgaudet), you will probably see random posts about the #BigDumbBunny. The name is self-explanatory. She’s big. She’s dumb. And she looks like a big dumb bunny with those ears and the bunny hop.
Feel free to check out one of my blogs.
The Intangible World of the Literary Mind (lvgwriting.wordpress.com) is my first blog. It’s a blog about writing and being a writer for writers. I haven’t been as active as I would like to be. Life and stuff. Writing. You get it. I’ve posted stories, tips on writing, editing, creating platform, and promoting yourself and your writing. I post my own tips as well as hitting the reblog button to share the advice of others. I share (reblog) the odd book review and write my own book reviews when I have time to finish and review a book. I have a lot of reviews I am behind on writing. I post some random stuff too.
LV Gaudet, author (lvgaudet.wordpress.com) is a fan blog. It’s all about the reader. I share weird and creepy news stuff. Sometimes podcasts by some other people who like dark stories. And I post my own stories here. I am working on being more sharing.
Vivian Munnoch, author (vivianmunnoch.wordpress.com) is a nom de plume. An alias. My sometimes alter ego. I use this name for the child friendly stories. This is where I would post anything to do with the younger realm of darkness.
