A Departure

Atonement, Tennessee was a style departure for me.  I usually write what I like to call “quest type” fantasy.  While it’s a fantasy, Atonement is written in first person, and set in our current, real world.  It was designed to be something I could write ultra-fast for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) 2012.

Since it was within the NaNoWriMo rules to use existing notes and research, that’s exactly what I did.  (Again, the need for speed)  I had unused ideas from developing The Dead of Winter.  That’s why both stories involve Celtic mythology.  However, without digging deeply into a self-analysis, I think that’s about where the similarity ends.  The two books are quite different.

Right now I want to focus on finishing The Dead of Winter.  However, I plan to independently publish Atonement soon.  I got the free printing offer from Create Space, and they looked great.  That really encouraged me.  It was so exciting to have a “real” book in my hand that I had written!
