I am using Holly Lisle’s How To Think Sideways to get my book finished and in the condition I want it to be in. I recommend her course. If you decide to take it, tell her I sent you.
I have my series name and sentence nailed down:
Series Title: Kidnapped By a God
Series Sentence: A mundane, non-magical grandmother seeks peace in the form of oblivion but the primordial demon/god obsessed with her forces her to be repeatedly reincarnated.
Book One Title: The Salt Lovers’ Book of Magic
This is the final version. I changed the placement of the apostrophe which is a subtle change. The title started as The Salt Lover’s Guide to Magic which never felt quite right.
Book One Sentence: An abused daughter discovers a source of prosperity for her people for generations to come while her mother, village wisewoman, condemns her for consorting with demons to steal the glory.
I got this while playing with The MM yesterday. About time too. I was beginning to despair. I’ve been trying to nail it down for a couple of weeks now.
The other night while laying in bed, having a pity party about how my life is now over, I got the opening for the book and the plan for how to write it. I’m quite happy with the idea, so I guess I can go on living. (No wonder writers are so often a bunch of sloppy drunks.)
I have chosen all of the recurring images for the series covers. Gideon will appear somewhere on each.
Salt is specific to the first book.
My opening is also written.
