Novel Update: Earthbound’s Beginnings


I was trying to think back to when I first started writing “Earthbound” and what inspired it.The only thing I could remember was a single image of a blond man in khaki shorts jumping from one boulder to another then dropping down in front of the heroine. (To be honest, I think it was at least partially inspired by Steve Irwin.) That image didn’t even end up staying in the book.

But was that the only thing that kick started my imagination to write an entire book? Surely not. And when exactly did I start it? I realized I probably started it during a NaNoWriMo month so I went to the projects in my handy dandy NaNo dashboard.

Yes, my Camp NaNoWriMo project for 2014 is titled “Something About Demons.” I only made it 30 words in, but by the time I came back to it in November, it was called, “Among the Angels.”

I still can’t tell you exactly what inspired the novel in the beginning, but I’ll share some of the inspirations behind various aspects of the book in the weeks to come.

“Earthbound” definitely involves some angels, and some fallen angels. It’s still on pre-order for 99 cents for all ebook platforms.
