It’s That Time Of Year Again! :D

Or, NaNoWriMo is here!

November is my favorite month of the year–Fall colors, a chill in the air, pumpkin spice everything, and National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is the one month a year when I raise writing to priority #1 and quit with the excuses. I have to write everyday to “win” NaNo, and you should know I’m very competitive. For at least the last five years I’ve written messy, delightful, creative manuscripts that have become published novels in my Spell of Summoning, Red Plague, and Beasts of Vegas series.

Do you have a novel waiting to be written? Join me for NaNoWriMo this year. It’s free to participate and a community of amazing amateur and professional writers are always there to bounce ideas off of and meet for coffee and plot talks.

This year, I’m taking a break from my Beasts of Vegas series (but don’t worry–I’ll be back with a new sequel next year) and writing the last novel in my Red Plague series. There’s one more story to tell, and I’m going to share Jared and Olivia’s apocalyptic love story. There will be red-eyed monsters, tyrants, edge-of-your-seat adventure, and so many zombies!

I’m going to need your support to get through the next month, so keep checking back, and throw me a heart or two on Instagram (anna.abner).

Elixir is now in Italian!

Or, Have Any Italian Friends Who Like Apocalypse Fiction?

I’m thrilled to announce Elixir (Red Plague #1) has been translated into Italian! Over the summer I was lucky to work with Yassine Riahi at BabelCube.com to translate the first novel in my Red Plague series. You can download the ebook from Barnes & Noble here.

If you know anyone who reads Italian, I would really appreciate you mentioning my new translation. Thank you in advance.

Back cover blurb:

The red plague has devastated the human race, turning billions of people into zombies with red eyes and an insatiable hunger for human flesh.

The 212R virus sweeps through the population so quickly a possible cure is left to rot. Seventeen-year-old Maya Solomon may be the only survivor who knows where it is. But to reach the lab in Raleigh, North Carolina she will have to outrun the infected boy tracking her every step and cross into a city swarming with monsters.

Will I See You at the RWA Conference in Orlando?

Or, Meet Me in Florida

Are you going to the annual Romance Writers of America’s (RWA) conference this year in Orlando? I’m super excited to be there the entire week of July 24.

If you’re planning on attending, let’s catch up.

I’ll be promoting my two paranormal series, The Red Plague and The Dark Caster, with postcards, pens, and temporary tattoos in the goody room.

I’m really looking forward to re-connecting with my writer friends and learning a lot from the panels.

P.S. I’ll keep you updated throughout the week of the 24th on Twitter (@AnnaAbner) and through this blog. 🙂

Remedy (Red Plague Series) Alternate Endings

Or, Really Fun Ideas That Make Little Sense

Remedy Cover 1800x2700

It was so fun to write Remedy. I had dozens of dramatic scenes bouncing around my head, but these two alternate endings just didn’t fit into the final plot or fit with the characters.

At one point early on in writing the book I imagined that after Callie witnessed Levi nearly murder Roman she would run away, back to her island paradise. I loved the idea of Roman following her into the unknown. I adored their reunion in the splashing surf.

But the more I thought about it, the less I liked Callie abandoning Roman. The poor guy had been left behind by everyone he’d ever cared about. If Callie truly loved him, she wouldn’t leave him.

So, I re-wrote the end. Callie still left, but had a change of heart and returned to share a romantic reunion at the wall around the heart of Washington DC.

But it still bothered me that Callie abandoned Roman. So, though their meeting at the wall was terribly dramatic, I had to start from scratch.

I won’t spoil the final ending in the published version, but if you’ve read Remedy, I hope you enjoy seeing how things might have ended up differently for Callie and Roman.
