So all my writing these past couple weeks – including, incidentally, finishing all my grad school stuff – has been a warm-up for NaNoWriMo. This is an exciting one since last year I was working and in school full time, so I wasn’t really looking to win. This year, though – this year, I’m working on contract, so I this year I will reach the coveted 50K with the book I’ve been planning. The working title is Deep Summer but I have no idea what that means, and it’s about two detectives – Alexis Mayfair and Morgana Ripley – who fight crime in a world similar to that of Gotham: 90s era tech, with a 30s atmosphere.
Oh, and did I mention magic?
Alexis – Lex to Morgan and no one else – is half Kitsune, and Morgan? She’s just a cop who gets more than she bargained for when she is recruited into the Department – an organization that polices magic that seeps into the mortal realm.
