WIP Moment: What I'm Working on Next (November 2021-January 2022)
BONE OF MY BONE, Book 7: Bloodmoon Cove Spirits Series
Back in February and March 2021, I outlined the book I plan to start writing on Monday. I actually outlined it twice. The first time, I got more than halfway through and realized the story simply couldn't be worked out. But luckily I had a brain storm of ideas on how to fix the issues only days after I conceded defeat and I went to work starting all over again. It was an almost total overhaul. This time the story worked and, when written, should be a great installment to the Bloodmoon Cove Spirits Series. I fell in love with the characters the with the second outline. When I went back to read the outline on Thursday and Friday of this week, the outline still seemed solid so I'm green-lighting the project.
I expect the story will hover near the 100,000 words range when it's finished (based on the length and complexity of the outline). Unless I'm super-fast or super-slow writing it, I'm allotting myself until about 3 months to write it (I know, pretty unheard of for me in the past but compensations must be made for old age, lol). I intend to write one scene a day unless it's going so well, I "splurge" here and there and get ahead of schedule. I'm looking forward to seeing how this tale and the characters will develop and how scary I can make it. Fingers crossed for a real horror fest this time!

Here are the details with the temporary cover I’ve designed (the final will have the same graphic, though the design will match the previously published books in the series):
BONE OF MY BONE

Romantic Paranormal Horror

Don’t close your eyes…
Nestled on Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin is a small, secluded town called Bloodmoon Cove with volatile weather, suspicious folk…and newly awakened ghosts.
How to bury what won't stay dead…?
When Bennet Ryan was eight years old, he met Ice and fell for her just as she came to love him and his entire family. With love, trust should be forged. Yet who Ice was and where she came from was an enigma she adamantly concealed. At a crossroads when they were nineteen, Bennet gave her an ultimatum: Entrust her secrets to him or he'd have no choice but to move forward with his life. At the time, he didn't have a clue the price he'd pay for that devastating break. Every year since Bennet met her, she'd disappeared without a trace at the end of September. After Bennet left her, he'd worried she wouldn't come back within two weeks the way she always had before. His worst fear materialized when she didn't return. Now, at twenty, he's the new deputy sheriff in Erie County. The months of investigation that followed Ice's disappearance ended abruptly with no sign of what happened to her…or shred of proof she was even still alive.
Still grieving a year after her disappearance, Bennet is floored when Ice reappears in Bloodmoon Cove. As they fall in love all over again, September is approaching rapidly, bringing with it a deadly reckoning. Ice's haunted comment about "how to bury what won't stay dead" compels Bennet to solve the mystery of Ice once and for all. The deeper he delves, the more certain he is that the hole the Mino-Miskwi elders tore in the veil between the living and the dead a century ago has created a maelstrom of twisted horror. How can he possibly save the woman he loves from an entity that wears the name of creation's first murderer, bears an immortal seal, and made a pact with the devil himself?
