June is my month to get Smashing Pumpkins wrapped up and cleaned up. I’m planning to publish at the end of September. I won’t have an actual launch date for a little while yet, but as soon as I do I’ll post it here along with information on where to get it.
I’ve had to come to grips with my genre for this which was a bit of a surprise to me. Smashing Pumpkins is definitely Urban Fantasy, but not the kind with magic or demons. The fact that I have added a non-existent element to our current reality takes the book right out of the realm of plain old fiction. In addition to that, it also stands as a Mystery Thriller. I’m sort of scratching my head over this. I hadn’t planned to write something that landed in more than one genre. I suppose it was inevitable considering how much I dislike something so common as reality. I love to change things, to alter a single item of what I see and imagine how it would affect life around me.
So far, I’m pretty happy with my progress on this first book. Having never written one before I’ve been nervous about the amount of time I have been spending on things, but I’m not really beating myself up over it. Things take as long as they take.
Happy writing everyone!
