Last November, I participated in National Novel Writing Month. I'd never heard of it before, until Tracy Hickman mentioned it in a facebook post. The idea fascinated me, and I immediately decided to participate. I started late, so I forced myself to write more than the minimum. Every time I missed a day, I increased the minimum words per day from then forward. By the time I reached my 50k words, I was at least a couple days ahead of schedule.
So here we are, and that book is finally published. Given the way in which it was written, it fits my personal style quite well. What the characters do is more important than what the plot dictates. Logic and consistency with the characters and the world is something I worked hard to maintain. I also tried to make a few points, using my characters, about things I find kind of stupid within the wider world of fiction (be that movies, games, or books). We'll see if anyone actually cares about my hack attempts at making a statement.
Enough Rambling! Where's the book?

A seasonal mercenary named Mirron, wielding a glaive and known for being strangely reptilian, finds herself thrust into an adventure that is not her own. She ends up being the sole guardian of a helpless infant, pursued by an assassin queen and her husband known only as Butcher. Guided by fairies and desperation, Mirron has to try to find some where safe to take a helpless infant so she can safely return to her own family.
