I will leave the NaNoWriMo post here because I still think it's cool that I completed it way back in November of LAST YEAR. So, for those of you have already read it, you will know it's nothing new - just skip the smaller type below this intro.
A lot has changed since I completed NaNoWriMo. I'm still taking title suggestions but I have one in mind that I think I am going to use. No - I'm not telling what it is because it has not yet been suggested to me here. I will wait until I get MUCH closer to releasing the next book.
Just to keep my readers up to date... Color Me Grey is still free at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and everywhere else I can think of - except in paperback.
This has jump started some sales for me. I'm very grateful to everyone who gives my books a chance. Thank you!
You can suggest a title to me here or on Facebook. If we aren't friends, maybe we should be.

Okay everyone - I've uploaded 56,138 words for the NaNoWriMo project. This means that I've completed NaNoWriMo! Now onto the real story.
I will admit that what I wrote during the month of November doesn't have a whole lot of promise. It did... up until about 35,000 words but then the story took a turn and now it needs to be something entirely different.
It's a bit sad that I have to write 35,000 words of a story before I realize that it's juvenile and just not going to work for my characters. But, that seems to be the way I write, like it or not. Hopefully this little writing endeavor has given me a better story idea to write and I can get it completed in a short amount of time.
I'm STILL asking everyone for their help. I've truly loved each and every title suggestion I've gotten. I am still asking for scene ideas as well too.
I find this very fun and encouraging! It's nice to know there are some people out there interested in what I write.
If I am able to complete "Book Four" of The Alexis Stanton Chronicles I will need a title.
I'm asking everyone to suggest a title for me.
If I choose YOUR title I will send you a copy of the book when/if it becomes available.
(Yes, I said if... If it sucks, I'm not printing it - but then again, if it sucks I won't title it either)
I would love it if you could leave a comment with a title suggestion and your email. The email request is just in case I choose your title I will need to contact you to find out where to mail your free copy.
I'm also open to any suggestions of anything you'd like to read about Grey doing. My story is pretty much plotted out in my head, but I will need little side adventures. However, if you come up with something good, I may just rewrite the whole thing in my head to accommodate your suggestion.
There are some guidelines.
The first three books were all "Something" Grey so I will favor any titles that are similar.
Book One is Color Me Grey
(she becomes Ms. Grey)
Book Two is Shades of Grey
(we are given a larger view on the life of Ms. Grey)
Book Three is Reflections of Grey
(if you've kept up with the series you'll understand and maybe I'll figure out a way to explain without spoilers - eventually. Just know that she doesn't give up being Grey...)
Book Four is Untitled
(can't simplify this one until I've got a little more written)
