National Novel Writing Month: My New Project

· amwriting,NaNoWriMo

November is National Novel Writing Month—NaNoWriMo for short. The rules of NaNoWriMo are simple: Write 50,000 words in a new novel during the month of November.

What will I be doing during NaNoWriMo, you ask? I just completed my first draft of the next Fenway Stevenson Mystery. Book 7 is called The Accused Coroner, and next I’ll be readying it for a trip to my developmental editor!

So this month, I’m focusing on a brand new series. Murders of Substance features a brilliant but arrogant forensic toxicologist and the federal agent who is assigned to work cases with him. The first novel, Ceremony, finds a dead graduate student injected with a dangerous hallucinogen. The list of suspects is huge, from the professor in debt to a pharmaceutical company, the mysterious girlfriend, a local fringe church who used the drug in rituals, an animal-rights activist—even the local lake fishing society. I’m targeting the middle of next year for release.

I hope you’ll enjoy this series as much as you like the Fenway books!
