The Mystery of the Disappearing Day

By Vivian Arend

It’s Tuesday, do you know where your weekend has gone?

Mine disappeared during a trip to the States to an amusement park and some power shopping.

Just kill me now.

Well, not because of the amusement park, but because of the shopping. I HATE shopping. I know, I know, somewhere along the line I must have lost the female gene that requires my heart to thump at the thought of getting to go shop.

My gene makes my stomach clutch and my head start spinning. Shopping, my favourite thing.

Not.

But… I lie just a little. Because I did get to shop at a bookstore. Eight books later, which was about 10 minutes work if I remember correctly, I was out of there and could have driven the 3 hours home happily done my shopping for the day.

Me and Bookstores. Ummmmmm.

To Do Lists from Hell

By Vivian Arend

True Confessions?

I’m a list maker. But not always a list completer.

Lists are like bunnies- leave them alone for a little while and when you come back to check them you’ve got lots more to take care of.

To-Do lists around my house currently include prepping for school starting in two weeks, getting my contract (!) stuff completed and sent in, finishing landscaping our house and writing my brains out on the three stories I’ve currently got started.

Busy? Nahhhh, I should add a few more things to list. Like 6 hour trips to the Orthodontist, fun family trip to Silverwood Amusement park, picking up a puppy…

Sleep is for whimps.

Heart beating wildly…

By Vivian Arend

I’ve been sitting on pins and needles for weeks, hoping for a response on a story I submitted.

I had written ‘Hidden Away’ and really fell in love with the world of my werewolves. Then I found a submissions call for novellas about humourous wolves/ghosts and other spookies. The deadline was May 30th with selection by June 16th.

So in spite of the fact that it was already mid April, even though we were packing up the house and moving into a camper for a while. Plus going camping for a couple of weekends… well I wrote the story and submitted 20K.

I have to say I -like- that I only had to wait two weeks for an answer. (I HATE waiting…) I got a ‘No…but’. I wasn’t selected for the anthology but the editor was kind enough to pass on the story to another editor to look at as a regular submission.

She was also very quick and by June 23 I had another ‘No…but’. She gave me suggestions for revisions and said she’d look at again if I revised. Side note. Wow, was she ever good with her suggestions! I could see where the issues were and possibilities for changing. I am so glad that she’s good at her job!

Of course June 25 the family left for a three week trip to the east coast. I did take the laptop along and started revising. It worked well. I’d stew about scenes in my brain and then when I finally got a few minutes with electricity I’d flash out words like wildfire!

I resubmitted July 18th.

Did I mention I HATE waiting?

Late yesterday I got the email. ‘THE’ email.

It wasn’t ‘No…but’. It was ‘Yes…but’.

That’s when the heart pounding started. I need to sign a contract still, but I’m not too superstitious. It’s gonna happen. I’m getting published!

Oh, and the ‘…but’ part? I need to change the story title. Which is totally throwing me now as I’ve had the title since the first minute. But I can come up with something.

Because I’m a writer.

🙂

Secrets of Tarneth

By Vivian Arend

A simple training mission goes disastrously wrong leaving the untried Prince Toren in charge of two elves and a human youth. Not only do they have to deal with attacks from an unknown enemy, they face the challenge of opening their eyes to a world that is not what they thought it to be.

As hidden truths are revealed bringing both pleasure and pain they struggle to complete their tasks. Will their friendships be strong enough to solve the mysteries before them?

—————————-

I wrote this story for Nanowrimo 2007. I went a little insane and it turned into a 100K+ story. Needless to say I have a lot of editing to do on it but there is a really good premise underneath this mess and I hope to pull it out eventually. It’s currently a Young Adult work and part of my problem is if I want to turn it to more adult or keep it YA.

I really learned a great deal as I wrote this story, so I think I’m always going to like it, just for how much it made me grow!

Hidden Away

By Vivian Arend

Being hidden away in a witness protection program wasn’t on Jessi’s agenda. Neither was having a gorgeous stranger turn into a giant dog in front of her, the same dog that has been sleeping in her bed for the past week. Yet when the Alpha of the local werewolf pack announces she’s his mate and proceeds to initiate her into everything werewolf before the next full moon she can’t help but feel that she’s finally in the right place.

Tyler’s been working all over the country for years, protecting the secret of werewolf existence from humans. His wolf side has decided that it’s time for him to settle and down and become a proper Alpha to a growing pack. That’s on top of dealing with one last mission for his office, a teenage brother with an attitude and a newly triggered werewolf mate,

Small town living has never been so interesting…

———————————–

I’ve completed this work and it’s currently undergoing edits. 51K. Overall it’s a fun story but I need to work through a couple places that it’s a little too ‘nice’- ie. problems get solved in the blink of an eye. Jessi is just a hoot, a little lippy and not vaporous at all. Tyler is all Alpha and the two have really good chemistry. I’m really needing some beta readers for this work before I get brave enough to submit it to a publisher.
