Let's post what we are working on and if we need help, ask questions of our fellow authors.

I'm currently working on two book twos in two totally different genres. One epic fantasy, one post-apocalyptic horror. Fun time :)

I am currently working on my gothic horror story "This Gothic World" which is a Wattpad series. I just finished Chapter 6 of it. It is absolutely something to read for horror and gore fans out there and also Game of Thrones fans will enjoy it as well. :)

Sounds excellent. Feel free to throw a link in here. We're all about supporting each other.

let us know when it's up Eliana or if you need a read through.

I'm working on a story reminiscent of Hunger Games without the games. At the moment, my character is coming to realize that there used to be a lot of cities, but now there is only one massive city. What do you suppose happened to everyone?

so many different ways you could go with that. Was it after a disaster? Was it survival of the fittest? Did people break out into groups based on a hierarchy of some sort? Did something other than humans become the top of the food chain, forcing everyone into one city for safety reasons or a controlling faction that forced them there? Always so much fun to think out the many scenarios!

@HargrovePerth Like Hunger Games, it's after some sort of major war, but the details have been obscured or forgotten (not sure which yet). But also like Hunger Games a major central city runs everything and outlying district are essentially uneducated slave labor to support it.

I've got quite a few things on the go at the moment. Working on the third book in my co-written vampire series, the third book in my shifter series, a dark rockstar romance, and a few other things that I'm not ready to talk about yet :)

I am working on a witch detective book set in Pittsburgh that might become a series. Haven't decided yet.

I'm working on your last nerve (snort). Besides that, since publishing DreamBabes (sequel to DreamWalker) in Jan19, I've been working on some ideas, including the 3rd book in DreamWalker series yet to be named. I'll have to find a new publisher, as my present one will support existing inventory but has stopped accepting new books. In true trilogy format, the second movement of this symphony leaves many themes and other loose ends to be collected within the final movement. You get a good idea where it's headed (as any prophet would), yet many surprises are still in store as it's all "fleshed out" (giggle).

Broke the 53k mark on When the Rooster Crows at Midnight.

Meant to be working on Book 6 in my children's book series. It's stalled need to get on with it again as people keep asking me for it.

  • We will list all website updates here as they happen to keep you informed.
  • All, Facebook recently changed the way it manages groups. Previously, when you were a member of a group and someone posted to it, you always received a notification. Now, you only receive highlights. No one knows what way Facebook manages these 'highlights,' so you stand a chance of missing something important. To fix this, you need to go to the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/wassup.collective/ and at the top, just under the banner, click on the notifications tab. Ensure 'All posts' is selected.
  • I have this awesome reader who just bought all my books recently. He promised to let me know of any typos he came across as he read. He found a small handful of typos over three books. Bless his heart. So, I spent the last eight hours going over those three books and finding and fixing those mistakes (and finding a couple more along the way - sigh). I also learned from publishing over on SmashWords that they required graphics to be formatted as 'in line' Graphics is something that I've wrestled with for ages, trying to get them to look the way I want, not to mention getting them to stay there. Come to find out as I was working through one of my books, that anchoring them 'in line' did all that. I know what I did in this book. The graphic wasn't in line with the text, it was a scene break image and on a line of it's own, with its own formatting (centered). As I was going through this document, almost all of the graphics had drifted off by a line, even though they were tagged properly. Setting them from 'top and bottom' to 'in line' fixed that instantly. The image was butted up against the following paragraph, but all I had to do was start a new paragraph and then center the image. easy-peasy, though tedious. I had a lot of little graphics in that book, and I had to do two versions - eBook and paperback. They're different because I like a table of contents in my paperbacks. I also learned from this project that WPS Writer for Linux isn't as good as Microsoft Word, though it is VERY close. It seems that if a paragraph broke at the bottom of a page to continue on the next, it didn't take that last line to the end before finishing the sentence/paragraph on the next page. Not a manual page break, though that's what it looks like. No setting I could devise fixed that. And most frustrating - it didn't do it all the time. I'll have to send them a message to see what's up with that. It messed up the page numbers on one of my paperbacks (but not the other two). Very frustrating. I like my page numbers centered at the bottom of the page. In this book, they are centered in the left half of the bottom of the page. Talk about out of whack.
