 Elise Fallson and D.L. Hammond are putting together 

On Friday, May 31st, they are providing the forum for bloggers to present their [W]ork [I]n [P]rogress through the World Wide Web. They have provided a few prompts to answer in your post, and even give you the opportunity to solicit CP’s (partners who exchange material for detail critique – usually chapter by chapter) or Beta Readers (test readers who read entire manuscripts and offer broad opinions) if you’re looking for this type of opportunity. 

Well at the moment I am working on three WIP's, the first is a new Sci-fi I am playing with, the second another Vampire tale and the third is the third installment of The Protector Series!

So, I thought I would introduce you to all three works, I hope I am not asking too much.

Below are the prompts Elise and Tbone want participants to follow:

WIP Title:  Forces of Mist

Word Count (projected/actual so far): 80,000 /10,000

Genre: Science Fiction / Romance

How long have you been working on it?: 9 months

Elevator Pitch (if you came across an agent in an elevator ride, what couple of lines would you use to summarize your book):

 A science fiction romance between a young human survivor and an elite alien warrior, set in Sydney, Australia, after an alien attack has crippled the planet. Survival of the human race depends on the trust built up between the two unlikely lovers as they undermine the invading force. War, love, espionage and suffering are the key elements included in the Forces of Mist.

Brief Synopsis (250 words or less):

Human life is almost annihilated, the alien force with their army of Mist Warriors have been attacking the planet for five years, leaving it to waste.

Orphaned at the age of 13yrs, Sandy is one of the few survivors left living in the area of Sydney, Australia and is part of the military force battling to keep the human race alive. With their advanced technology, magical powers and formidable strength, they seem to be fighting a loosing battle against the invaders. 

One Mist Warrior may hold the key to changing the future for Sandy and planet Earth, but whether Sandy trusts him enough to follow his path and stop the suffering, is something she can only decide.

WIP Title:  He Came for Them, Book Three in The Protector Series

Word Count (projected/actual so far): 65,000 /5,000

Genre: Paranormal Romance

How long have you been working on it?: 6 months

Elevator Pitch (if you came across an agent in an elevator ride, what couple of lines would you use to summarize your book):

The paranormal vampire series, The Protectors, is continued in this third book with a new race of vampire from another realm. Aidensdein needs the support of this race, the Delpheen, to help them fight back against the Horde, who is continuing to wreak havoc upon their people. Tension, mistrust and insecurities are overcome when two young people find an attachment to one another and the two races unite in battle.

Brief Synopsis (250 words or less):

This is the third installment of The Protector Series, continuing  Jazz and Sebastian's story as they battle to save Aidensdein from the attacking Horde. Their numbers dwindling, the people of Aidensdein seem to be fighting a loosing battle, leading them to beg for help from a second neighbouring race of vampires... The Delpheen.

Unlike other vampires, these beings communicate telepathically and use their minds to draw sustenance from the emotions of those around them. Taking what they can, without any thought of the consequences of others.

Jazz and Sebastian need to tread cautiously as they try to create a bond between the albino like Delpheen and the people of Aidensdein, placing their hopes on a united front to battle and defeat the attacking Horde.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Let me guess - you are a romantic at heart, aren't you?

Tiana Smith said...

They all sound interesting! I don't really read paranormal or sci-fi, but best of luck in finding partners :)

DL Hammons said...

My, aren't we a busy bee? Forces of Mist and Tint look the most interesting to me. Good luck with all three! :)

Elise Fallson said...

Oh, I'm liking the sound of all three! I'd be happy to beta read for you. I'm strapped with time at the moment until the end of summer but if you need a beta in Sept, let me know. (:

M.J. Fifield said...

Wow. Three WIPs. I can't even seem to manage one. Best of luck with them!

PK HREZO said...

Wow you have a lot going on! So productive! They all sound great!

Aldrea Alien said...

Okay, I'm sold on you Sci-fi Romance. ^_^

Timothy S. Brannan said...

Wow! They all sound great.
I love the title of "Tint", I'll have to keep coming back to see more.

The Other Side

Dianne K. Salerni said...

That's a lot of WIPs to be working on at one time! I tip my hat to you.

I have occasionally worked on two WIPs at one time as a way to increase productivity. But one WIP always overpowers the other, and the weaker one dies a slow death. Arrrgh.

Good luck to you on all three!

Courtney Barr - The Southern Princess said...

3????!!! Wow! Kudos to you for being able multitask like a champ!

All 3 sound fabulous - I really love Tint (not just for your characters name). I so hope to read more and would love to beta read any of them.

You're a busy writer! Isn't it exhilarating to have a few projects going at once? No chance for writer's block that way.

Meradeth Houston said...

Love the sound of all of these, but I really, really want to read Forces of Mist. If you want a CP/beta, don't hesitate to email me :)

Trisha said...

Wow, you are busy! I LOVE the sound of your sci-fi set in Sydney. Even if as an Australia it still strikes me as weird to think of apocalyptic-style stories set in this country. Even if I do have one myself that is set here :D

Deniz Bevan said...

They all sound interesting! Especially the first one - I like the idea of a small group of humans battling against invaders.
