I decided to enter into this year's NaNoWriMo, so yay me! I'll have to put Unwilling on hold for three or four weeks to get some writing done, but I already have finished two chapters that will be published on the 8th and 18th of November, so no big waiting games for you folks :)
My NaNoWriMo story will not see the light of day as a free read since I've started working on an idea I already planned as a real, hand-to-heart, published book. It'll probably be crap after rushing it through in one month, but I'm positive I'll get it finished like this much sooner than with waiting for better days to come.
Now, back to my writing project! Here's the gist:
Christopher Duke is a Cambion, one of demon blood but not a full-fledged demon. Working as a private investigator for a firm specializing in field work instead of paper and plastic, he can put his talents to the best use - finding things lost or stolen for its true owner.
One cold January morning a small, northern maritime container terminal near a shipping port is frozen solid over night. Ice as thick as 4 inches is coating the coastline and everything within 10 feet of the water - even a security guard supposed to patrol the docks. This ‘freak accident’ leads to an insurance claim with an insurance company employing Holland Investigations.
Christopher is assigned the job of verifying the claim, and gets a rookie, Quentin, as his new partner. His new partner can't find out about Chris's lineage though. Quentin Wheeler, archetypical sunny boy and man without a bad cell in his body, is a member of C.A.D.E., the biggest organization against demons and their scions ever seen. Though Chris can't really know how Quentin would react, his crush on his new partner forbids him from ruining their relationship by telling the truth about his ancestry.
And then there is Galen, who may or may not be one of the bad guys, but still too intriguing and too captivating to stay away from. One thing is sure though, he IS a demon, and staying in contact with him would definitely cost Chris Quentin's friendship.
Here's some music to get you going:
