Contributor, Contributor #1 sneak peek
I started writing Contributor as a challenge to myself. The previous year I'd done NaNoWriMo and finished, but was left with a wreck of a manuscript that had no hope of ever being worthy of publication. Still, bolstered by having written 50,000 words in 30 days, I decided I'd try again. Since NaNoWriMo feels like an excellent time for experimentation, I decided I'd try to change genres every year, challenging myself to write in genres I didn't think I could handle.
Contributor is the result of my NaNo 2011 experiment. It started out as a very different book, morphing halfway through NaNoWriMo into something completely different. Naturally, that sent me into a panic, but I went with it and am glad I did. I think Contributor turned out much better than my initial idea would have.
If you'd like further insight into the world, be sure to check out the prequel novella, Creators, which lays the foundation for the world in which Contributor takes place. Creators is available on Amazon.
