Summer is almost over here in the midwest and it’s been hot as a firecracker. Thankfully not as many wildfires as we’d feared but it wouldn’t take much to wipe Oklahoma off the map with the lack of rain we’ve had this year. I hope everyone else is staying cool. On top of that we are having internet issues and hope to have it resolved soon so I can blog more regularly again. Until then, feel free to visit some of my friends’ sites in my blog roll for fun. I’ll be updating that list very soon with some awesome authors!
I’ve had a busy, busy summer. I announced the purchase of our new home in June, well we are moved in and almost unpacked. Still far from organized, but unpacked. I sold my first short story ebook, HOME, to The Wild Rose Press in the midst of it all and am waiting on the release date, which I’ll announce as soon as I have it.
So what am I working on now? I still haven’t figured out the revisions for Perfect Dr. Viv so I’m moving forward on that mostly. This week I started a new project. I love new beginnings. I know a lot of authors who say the first draft of a new book is their favorite part of writing. I love that ‘new’ feel as I open a blank doc. but even more than that, I think my fave part is after I give those cardboard persons life. When I breathe personality and substance into them with words I begin to feel like I’m getting to know new friends and I fall in love with them. That doesn’t happen in a first, or sometimes even a second, draft for me. So it will be a while before I introduce the three latest characters to the world here in my blog. Yep. There are three special people in this new wip. Three main characters. Nooo. It’s not a menage! You know by now that I write what my tag line says- ONE man, ONE woman, ONE love. So who is the third MC? You’ll have to wait and see. All I can tell you is that you’ll adore them (I hope) as much as I already do.
In the meantime, I’ll be writing, revising and happily living in my new house in the middle of one of the hottest, driest states in the USA.
Oh- and check back on Tuesday, the 23rd, to find out where I’ll be guest blogging.
