Dark Heir blog tour: Guest post by Faith Hunter

Dark Heir Tour Banner

Today I'm delighted to welcome Faith Hunter to the blog. Jane Yellowrock is one of the coolest cats in urban fantasy today and I'm also a huge fan of her Rogue Mage books, which you should totally try if you like post-apocalyptic fun. Or maybe "fun" is a better word, since it's not exactly a good time for everyone involved. In any case, we have an exclusive guest post from Faith as part of her blog tour for DARK HEIR, the ninth Jane Yellowrock book. Enjoy!


A Day in the Week of Faith Hunter: Tuesday

The Hubs and the dogs and I go through our usual morning routine and by 10 a.m. I am at the grocery store with my youngest brother. He takes care of the groceries for his family and we visit while we shop. This lets us catch up on family stuff, like who is sick, what tests came back, how his business and my writing are doing. We shop and gripe and vent and then head home through a steady rain, with goodies in the back of our vehicles.

Today I finish the second draft of the novella’s outline that I worked on all day yesterday and when I am satisfied, I send it to my editor at Penguin/Roc for her suggestions and approval. They already paid me for it so I am happy to have something on paper. Also, today is “Dust-mop Floor Day”, so when I break, I clean and wash any clothes I didn’t get to yesterday.

I have a housekeeper who comes every four to six weeks to dig us out, but I do the light stuff on my own. If I won the lottery or something, I might have someone come in every two weeks, but the Hubs and I are hermits by nature and having people in the house is disruptive to the creative jobs we have.

Today I also start the new Jane Yellowrock novel. This will be book 10, and the outline was finished last week. My head is clear and I already know the first line, which helps getting started. I don’t begin every novel knowing that first line. Sometimes I write a hundred pages before it comes to me, and that requires bit of a rewrite to get everything to flow, but today it’s easy, a bit of dialogue that tells Jane someone has come back from the dead. Well, the supposed dead. As it turns out she wasn’t really dead at all.

Anyway, I am on page three before I think to take a break and I have to move a lot to get my body going again. I do bit of cleaning and thinking and then prepare a very late lunch with the Hubs. It rained a lot overnight and is still raining now, and he’s going paddling on a creek nearby with a Class V paddler. This will be the warmest day of the week, with another cold front on the way.

I have the house to myself and the writing is flowing nicely. No phone calls to interrupt me, the dogs are sleepy and not asking to go out quite so often. They don’t care for the rain. My little pampered babies.

I write a good five pages total today, and then revise a bit, adding in the necessary foreshadowing, which gives one more page. Today is also Cardio Day. I do cardio two days, then weights two days, then yoga-based stretches one day. The Hubs and I have a good supper. Tuesday is TV night, and I am ready for NCIS and NCIS-New Orleans, reading a story, and watching my shows.

Here's the scoop on DARK HEIR:

Dark Heir by Faith Hunter (Jane Yellowrock #9)Shapeshifting skinwalker Jane Yellowrock is the best in the business when it comes to slaying vampires. But her latest fanged foe may be above her pay grade…

For centuries, the extremely powerful and ruthless vampire witches of the European Council have wandered the Earth, controlling governments, fostering war, creating political conflict, and often leaving absolute destruction in their wake. One of the strongest of them is set to create some havoc in the city of New Orleans, and it’s definitely personal.

Jane is tasked with tracking him down. With the help of a tech wiz and an ex-Army ranger, her partners in Yellowrock Securities, she’ll have to put everything on the line, and hope it’s enough. Things are about to get real hard in the Big Easy.
