Whew! I'm back to my regular Saturday updates now, and I'm excited to say that not only did I win NaNoWriMo this year, but I finished Book 1 (Whiteout) of the Queen of Seasons quintet at 70,000+ words AND got another 30,000+ words for Book 2 (Updraft) for over 100,000 words!
Of course, I thought I would take a little break once I finished, but the muse is strong with this one, and I'm still typing out Book 2. I look to have it finished mid-December, if not sooner, and perhaps get Book 3 (Squall Line) started as well. I would love to get all five books written before taking them to edits, as it would mean I could release them all at the same time! Wouldn't that be great?
I hope you all had as wonderful a November as I did, and with Christmas and New Year's coming up, I wish you all cheerful tidings. Next weekend I've got a wedding to attend, so if you don't hear from me, I'll be back in two weeks. Laters, all! :)

Knocked it outta the ballpark

Ash Litton is a writer and lover of sci-fi, fantasy, and all things fictional. She is the author of Thoroughbred, Evening Hallow, Comeuppance, and Cabover Cabaret, and works on other Appalachian Dream Tales between her ongoing novel projects. She's also written No Diet, No Surgery, No Sweat, an ebook chronicling her weight-loss journey.
When she's not writing, she's drawing, and when she's not doing either of those, she's dreaming up new projects to work on. Born and raised in rural West Virginia, Ash has always wondered what things lay hidden in the hills around her. She attended West Virginia University, where she studied the English language before returning home to her family in rural West Virginia.
Just checking out your blog (NaNo link). Don't worry, I'm not stalking you, or trying to pressure you for more chapters. :D
Cheers, and Merry Christmas.
