Haven’t been blogging much these past couple of months. Mainly because I’ve been up to my neck in conferences, rewrites, submissions, edits, Dr Jax going to Milan and me being a solo mum, and deadlines. It’s been a thing.
Anyway, I thought I’d give you an update on where I’m at so people don’t think I’ve dropped off the earth or have stopped blogging or anything completely INSANE like that.
So here’s what I’ve been doing:
I rewrote the Chessman. Took out the stuff I put in to make it more category. Darkened the conflict, hotted up the sexy-times, put in lots of angst, and then sent it to my editor at Samhain.
Then I rewrote most of the sheikh and included a couple of scenes that freaked me out to write and made wonder whether I am actually insane to put them in a M&B manuscript. Possibly I am. Anyway, only time will tell about that because I send it off.
Then turned my attention to my second Entangled book – working title The Player. I finished this before I left for Australia but I knew I’d done a completely pants job of it so had to rewrite most of it. Sigh. Sent the partial to my Entangled editor and got her thoughts and yes, I did have to rewrite the last half. Double sigh. Have just finished the rewrite today and will send that off tomorrow.
Next up is my third Samhain project – which is affectionately known as DVH AKA Dirty Virgin Hero. Yep, he’s a hero! He’s a virgin! And yet he’s also dirty! Have no idea how that’s going to work out and I may yet be off my tree in thinking it will but I’m going to give it a go anyway. Got to keep yourself challenged.
THEN, once I’ve finished the partial of the DVH, I am going to look at starting my third Entangled book – working title The Boss. Uptight, OCD hero. Naughty heroine. Am hoping it’s going to be fun.
So there you have it. Wot I have been doing. And in there somewhere will be Falling for Finn edits and maybe paying more attention to The Gambler, another Presents ms that I had to put aside for all the other stuff.
Oh and one other thing, just quietly because I’m not sure I can announce yet. So just pretend you didn’t hear this. I sold the Chessman. 🙂
