As National Novel Writing Month Looms - Romance Writer Pens Last Pages of '12 Novels in 12 Months' Challenge.

It’s been a busy year for author Dakota Madison, writing twelve novels and publishing nine of them in just twelve months. While many initially saw her challenge as crazy and unobtainable, Madison is proof that the human spirit is hardwired to succeed.


Florence, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/24/2013 -- While many authors take years or even a lifetime to navigate their way through writing and publishing a book, romance author Dakota Madison has achieved the unexpected by writing twelve novels in just twelve months.

The project was inspired by last November’s National Novel Writing month, which empowers authors to set a goal of writing fifty thousand words every four weeks.

“I wanted to test my tenacity and will. When I completed National Novel Writing Month last year, I wanted to continue setting goals and writing on a daily basis. Twelve novels in twelve months seemed like a great idea, even though many around me said it couldn’t be done!” says Madison, who has an entire trilogy yet to be published.

Continuing, “It hasn’t been easy. I balance writing with my full-time job as a University professor. This sees me up at 04:30 am to write for a few hours before work, as well as continuing on my lunch break. My incredibly supportive husband has become a domestic God to also make sure I can write when I get home.”

To date, Madison has published the following novels:

Fire on Ice: A New Adult Romance (Volume 1)
The Playmaker: Fire on Ice Series Book Two (Volume 2)
Matchplay: A New Adult Romance
Fair Play (Matchplay Series) (Volume 2)
Final Play (Matchplay Series) (Volume 3)
Be Good: A New Adult Romance
Slow No Wake: A New-Adult Romance
Still Fine at Forty
After Alex Died

“Sales have been surprisingly good, which isn’t unexpected considering how popular the Romance genre is. This project just goes to show that even the impossible can be achieved by those who are willing to work diligently for their dreams. I think I’ll take a bit of a break next year but have no plans to stop writing prolifically,” Madison adds.

With each book’s popularity increasing, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.
