Well, I’ve been a bad blogger. Haven’t been posting much but in my defense, have had lots on with getting Mr Sheikhypants into a fit state for sending, while angsting about my next Samhain submission and also the editing of the next Indulgence that I’m planning to send off soonish.
Oh and in the middle of that there’s the Romance Writers of Australia conference that I’m going to and then the week after that the New Zealand Romance Writer’s conference. Not to mention Dr Jax being an international jetsetter and flying off to Milan in a week or two – without me, I may add.
It’s all very busy.
Hopefully when I get back from the Gold Coast I’ll have some good goss to relate and blackmail pics to post. I’m pitching to an agent there – first time evah! – so wish me luck.
In the meantime I’ll leave you with a link or two:
This is to the Hot Pink Typewriter where fellow Indulgence author Victoria James is talking about torturing your characters. Okay, so she doesn’t put it quite like that, but that’s the essence of it. And since she posted this the same time I was putting my sheikh through the emotional wringer, I thought it was very appropriate.
Also see here, where the fabulous and talented Maisey Yates has her story of selling to Berkley with a cowboy story! So proud of you girl!
Ummm…and that’s about it. Might do a post later about what to do when your characters take you places you really don’t want to go (not looking at anyone in particular Mr Sheikhypants!). Should you go there or rein them back?? (I let him go there and still can’t work out whether that was a bad thing or not).
Have a good week, y’all.
