How to Plan a Novel


Originally posted on The Writing Fortress:

I’d like to say I’m no expert. In fact, I’m probably kind of like a lot of people when it comes to planning out novels; I’m really bad at it. It’s hard to find a place to start. For a while, I tried doing this and that, but nothing really worked. I knew the importance of planning out – it could inspire new ideas, and you wouldn’t be so caught off guard, because you (presumably) know where your story is going. I’m a pretty indecisive person – I’m also very lazy. I didn’t see the point of outlining – most of my story changed as I wrote more. I was always coming up with better ideas and abandoning previous twists. That’s also the reason why I tend to constantly start over in my writing. I’ve found a few different ways to outline your novel, and I’d like to share some of them.

The Sentinels Series by Alexandra Ivy


Originally posted on Reviews by Ruckie:

I just finished reading the two main books that Alexandra Ivy released in her fabulous Sentinels paranormal romance series.  Born in Blood and Blood Assassin are the type of high quality stories that devoted fans have come to expect from authors of this caliber, and new fans will definitely not be disappointed.  While lately it may seem that the PNR genre is beginning to be saturated with a lot of the same, many of our favorite authors and a few of the newcomers still bring it.  Introducing a world where “high bloods” and “norms” are struggling to coexist, Alexandra Ivy draws the reader in with both likeable and repulsive characters, a world that is by turns real and paranormally fantastic, and irresistible storytelling.

While Out of Control was released in October of 2014 at an estimated 109 pages, it was just enough to get the readers going.  Born in Blood was the first…

Shifting Shadows by Patricia Briggs

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Shifting Shadowsis an anothology that includes every short story set in Mercy Thompson’s world from older collections, plus four brand new stories, two of which are actually novellas. For me, the new stories alone were worth the price of admission, but I also like having all of these stories in one very nice collection.

I enjoyed revisiting some of the older tales that I had forgotten about, and I like all of the new ones, but my favorite of all is “Silver,” a novella that goes hundreds of years back in time to tell the story of Bran and Samuel, and the witch who made them werewolves. It was sad and dark, but beautifully done, and I will look at each of those characters a bit differently in future books.

If you are a Patricia Briggs fan and already familiar with Mercy Thompson…

Human turned phantom fae Brett has to survive mage trials when he has only just learned he’s a mage. And dragon fae shifter Ena is warned that the dragon fae kingdom is in turmoil, something that she vows to help put to rights.
When Brett is forced to fight alongside the phantom fae, which means take a stand against Ena and her kind, he’s not doing it. She will always have his loyalty, though when she learns he’s one of her enemy fae, and a mage on top of that, she might not feel the same about him.

Still, Prince Grotto is their common enemy, and if it means fighting him, maybe they can work together. Yet, Brett wants more than that with Ena. Will she ever see him as more than just a human fae seer she took as payment for rescuing the kingdom’s princess?
