Update! :)

Hey everyone! I hope y'all are having an AWESOME week so far! I am. Well, my week is busy, but it's still awesome. And it's about to be made awesomer on Saturday because of the fact that we're headed off to see a WWII battle reenactment! :D I'm really excited for that!
Okay, in other news ... ;)
The Silent Blade has been sent off to my test readers! So right now I'm taking a break from it since I sure there will be plenty of things to do when my test readers are finished. :)
Also, NaNoWriMo (national novel writing month)  is this month! Basically what that means is you try to write 50,000 words in the month of November, which is 1,667 words per day. So far I'm having fun, but we're only on day three. *smiles*.
The book I'm working on is one I started a while ago, but I haven't really dedicated much time or work to it. The title is A Question of Honor and it is set in 1940s Britain and France. Here's a brief synopsis I typed up to kinda give you an idea. :)


David is just a normal American pilot who has decided to leave the comfort of home to fight in the Battle of Britain. While most american men are rejoicing that they don't have to get caught up in the war, David willingly leaves everything behind to fight for a cause he believes in. 
Joyanna is a normal 7-year old girl who catches the eye of German Lieutenant Essler. But she is Jewish and kept alive only to get information that might be of use to the Reich. She still doesn't understand exactly why she has been taken away from her mother and sister, and life is not easy under the cruel watch of Lieutenant Erich Essler.
When a defining moment comes into David's life, will he choose vengeance? Or will he let his life be ruled by a higher standard? A standard of Honor. 

Pre-NaNo status is 15,000 words, so hopefully there will be around 65,000 when it's all finished! Right now I'm tentatively planning it as the first book in a trilogy, but we'll see! :)
Also, since I'll be spending most of my writing time working on A Question of Honor, I'm going to take a break from No Greater Love. I have't written anymore of the parts and there are some ideas I'm still toying with. So on Fridays I'll try and post a scene or two from A Question of Honor and maybe a character spotlight or two. Excited? I am!
Have an amazing rest-of-your-week! :)
