Tweet of the Day: The 99 Miles of October
Mighty short week this one on account of my Interweb provider and their shoddy service. No internet, no post. I guess I should just write them all in a day or so and them program wordpress to publish them on a daily basis, but the whole calendar widget is a bit wonky if you ask me.
You didn’t, I know, lets move on shall we?
- Tue: NaNo 2011-Just in Time or how I got screwed by my internet provider. Bitter much? Nah!
- Wen: Necessary Heroes Issue No.6 – The Quisling
- Thu: NaNo 2011:-Writing by Scene or Word Count.
- Fri: Space for Rent- I Support Occupy Wall Street
Short and bitter, just the way I like it.
But wait, there is more.
(Yes there is always more, sigh!)
So I give you the AW November 2011 Blog Chain:
This month’s prompt:
NaBloPoMo – National Blog Posting Month (not affiliated with the real NaBloPoMo).
Write up a back cover blurb for a book you have written or would like to write. It should be short, sweet, yet give a sense of people and events without totally spoiling the ending. NaNoWriMo participation is not required, and the blurb may be for fiction or nonfiction as you see fit.
I decided to go with what else but my current NaNo project: Ruins of Empire. It is mercifully short:
The Throne of Stars lays empty in the heart of the galaxy. Three centuries of conflict between the great Houses. A young Duke de Havilland takes his father’s place and must protect his people from a bloody incursion by the Imperial Guard. Can the newly crowned Duke survive the coming war and turn the tables on his enemies? Succeed, and he may win the hand of Lady Andrea, First Elector of House Kaiser and secure his House future. Fail, and the Imperial Guard will cut a swath of conquest from the Orion Arm to the Galactic Core. Trillions of lives hang in the balance between freedom and tyranny.
Yep, that’s it. I suck. So be it.
