A couple weeks back, I shared some sewing projects I did to reward myself for sending Ygerna off to beta readers. Strangely enough, one of those projects has already had over 30 repins on Pinterest. 🙂 I know that’s not exactly earth-shattering, but since it’s something I just threw together and posted, without any intention of making any waves — even small ones — I found it rather interesting.
I have since gotten back to writing, and am working on putting together a complete draft of Facets of Glass, the the second book in The Glassmakers Trilogy after Island of Glass. But during my week long vacation from writing, I lasted about two days before I started brainstorming something new, based on this:
I don’t remember anymore how I stumbled on this lovely premade cover during my “writing vacation”, but I thought it was so cool, I had to have it. And once I bought it, I had to start brainstorming the story to go with it. I have a pretty good idea now what the basic plot arc will be, but I still haven’t decided on a title. I like Winter Solstice, the title already on the cover, but here are some of the others I came up with:
Stealing Ice From the Snow Queen
The Cold Blade
Blade of Ice
Since I’m not that far along in the brainstorming department yet, I could tweak things depending on the title I choose. For this project, though, I am definitely intending to go more in the direction of fantasy romance, to try and create a book that is more marketable than what my imagination usually comes up with. 🙂
Let me know what you think!
