This is an author's blog written by Pico Triano. 'Pico's Profile' will tell you a little about me. 'Pico's Stuff' will lead you to links and information on how you can access all my publicly available writing. 'Friends and Family' advertises websites on behalf of family and friends. The 'Friend Book Reviews' page is where I review materials written by the many friends I have made as a writer. Finally I recently added a review page for general reviews.

Gearing Up For Camp NaNoWriMo

Last November we had four successful participants in NaNoWriMo in the family. April marks the beginning of Camp NaNoWriMo and four of us have signed up and a fifth possible. My goal is not to write a completely new book, but rather turn "Rat in the Shadows" into a complete manuscript. I have eight chapters written. That's a really good start but it is not a novel. I think the story line is a winner in the same realm as my first book. People who like "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie" will likely like the new story. For me completing the camp will be a success as long as it doesn't interfere with getting the first book out there.

I am a little jealous of my daughter who can put a full manuscript in a month in her sleep. She finished NaNoWriMo last November in ten days. There was a write in late in the month at the local library and she sat there twiddling her thumbs because she was already done. One of my twin boys is going for his first manuscript (he's not in the picture but looks almost exactly like the blond young man next to me). His genre this time out will be steampunk. That should prove interesting. Great to have so many family members pulling for each other.


  1. where I can I read one of your books?

  2. You can access the first chapter of both books mentioned in this post from the Pico's Stuff page. I'll let you know when "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie" gets released. It will be available through, Smashwords, and Goodreads just to name a few. I'm just hoping that we can avoid too many delays in getting that available to the public.
