What reviewers have to say about The Long Trails series:

(No, there aren’t any yet for A Sea of Green Unfolding!  Be the first!  Just released today!)

The Hills of Gold Unchanging:

“The pace is fast, there’s plenty of action and adventure and a few twists I didn’t see coming. Lizzi Tremayne writes good characters, and that definitely includes the horses. For me, though, it’s the history that’s the star in this story. Good characters plus excellent history equals a great read, which is what this is.”
Deborah Challinor, number one bestselling author and historian

“…superb storytelling. As Aleksandra and Xavier faced and survived human malevolence, natural disaster and accidents, and their own doubts and insecurities, I kept turning pages to find out what happened next. I love books in which adversity sculptures character and where challenges to relationships bend them to breakpoint and rebuild them stronger. This is one of those books. I can’t wait to read the sequel.”
Judy Knighton, editor

“There are so many things to like about this story. Lead characters, Aleks and Xavier, are well rounded and strong. Aleks has a stubborn streak and a determination to survive, no matter what. Both inspired me to cheer them on as they faced one problem after another along the way from Utah to California. The plot is well developed, and I particularly liked the attention to historical detail along the way. This is an author who does her homework, and it shows. I was intrigued by this story, and wish I’d read the first in the series before venturing onto this one. Despite that, this story does stand alone well, and is a cracking good yarn.”
Shelagh Merlin, NetGalley Reviewer

A Long Trail Rolling:

“vivid, light and fast-paced…it will appeal in particular to anyone interested in American…history, and in general to those looking for a ripping good read. I’m looking forward to reading The Hills of Gold Unchanging, the next volume in the Aleksandra and Xavier saga”
Deborah Challinor, number one bestselling author and historian

“The mystery, adventure, and danger of life in Utah in the 1860s is beautifully described…an authentic, emotional story of one woman’s fight for survival in an unforgiving landscape. I couldn’t put Lizzi Tremayne’s book down.”
   –Leeanna Morgan, USA Today bestselling author

“An impressive debut from a New Zealand (ex-American) author…a romance, a western, and an adventure story, all rolled up into a compelling read…I devoured this one and am hungry for more.”
   –Booksellers NZ

Successful Completion of NaNoWriMo!


Hello All,

Not only did I survive November, my month of writing for NaNoWriMo, where one commits to writing  50,000 words of a novel…  in 30 days…, but I’ve ‘Won’, or successfully completed the requirements!

 

Express Desired

Photo we took in July 2013 of Clifton Flats, Utah. One of the last remaining portions of the Pony Express Trail in Utah which still resembles it "back in the day". It's the fine line running toward you to the right on the photo. Thanks Patrick Hearty, for showing it to us!

now has a sequel:

A Sea of Green Unfolding
A Sea of Green Unfolding

Just received an email from NaNo… with the following excerpt:

‘You did it! You reached the rarefied summit of 50,000 words, so it’s time to start celebrating your achievement.

Winning NaNoWriMo is no easy feat: more than 300,000 people signed up for NaNo, but you’re one of just 41,940 writers who had the creative chutzpah, derring-do, and outright stamina to cross the finish line. Pat yourself on the back profusely, do a jig or two, and make sure to visit the Winner Page for all sorts of celebratory whoops and hollers. And, just to remind you, we’ll send out details about collecting your winner’s prizes on December 5.

 We hope you’ll keep your fantastic creative energy alive…’

… then I did the maths…  I was one of only 13%!  Made me feel good!

 

Now to continue this spate of writing!

On the final day, I wrote 5,600 words… which just proves to me that 2500-2900/day is a quite reasonable writing rate.

My new goal.

I thank those of you who have supported me in my goal, Elliot, Dave, the wild ladies of my NaNo 2013 FB group and all those others who have kicked me back to my computer!

Time to get back to writing…

Good thing it’s pouring outside today.  Already been out in it working in the yard for two and a half hours…

Have an awesome day.
