For Camp NaNo this month, I am working on a “reader magnet” for the beginning of my series of series all centering around one universe. For those who don’t know what a reader magnet is; it is a book, a few chapters, or extras that entice the reader to follow my works by joining my newsletter.
Essentially, it’s a freebie! Yeah, that means you’ll get a free book to read from my bibliography. Well, two days into writing for April, the new novella is around 5K already and I am finding character inspirations for the mental play-by-play going on in my head. I wanted to share those with you, so you can picture the characters, too.
MEET TRIXI VANPELT
Trixi is the main character in Funeral of a Good Girl, and an essential part of the girl/Mistress universe. In this book, we find out how she goes from the good girl and daughter of a music mogul to becoming a dominatrix, well known on both coasts. My inspiration comes from actress, Lyndsy Fonseca
MEET AGATHA “AGGIE” HELVETE
Aggie only appears in Trixi’s series as her love interest, providing the series with the age-gap trope. She falls for the young vixen and trains her to be a dominatrix, like herself. Her character is inspired by actress, Charlize Theron.
I hope to finish this story during April’s Camp NaNo, though it will still take a while for a second draft, deep edit, and professional edit. Writing a book isn’t all about, finishing the rough draft and publishing it. So, I would love to present this story by the end of the year. We will see how it goes. But I do love talking about my works, even before they are written. It helps me stay inspired.
Stay tuned for more information on Funeral of a Good Girl and the girl/Mistress series of series.
