Writing isn't for the Weak!

This year has been a very challenging year. It seems like a writer’s job is never done. If you aren’t plotting, writing, or editing….then you’re planning your next book. Whose great idea was it for me to become a writer?

As horrible as this sounds, I think that you can take the girl out of writing but you can’t take the writing out of the girl. I feel like this is what I was born to do. And the world will be a much better place if I can get my books out there and published. I don’t care that people can’t relate to my books, I want them to be able to fantasize about being my characters…being a part of the story, the romances and the happily-ever-after’s. Yes, this is why I write. I forgot that for a brief moment of insanity.

Okay, so I’ve been on war path in writing this week. Jennifer has been so kind to give DEREK’S DEMISE a jump start…she’s been editing it vigorously and getting it ready for submissions.

Our book KEY OF EDEN, I had to cut and rewrite the last two chapters and Becca’s mom has been Volun-told to edit that manuscript. I am very, very, very grateful for her help. She’s also been up to her eye balls in Becca’s two manuscripts.

I rewrote both of the queries for my books and resubmitted my KEY OF EDEN query to Agent Hannah Bowman for a critique. She sent it back with lots of great comments. She loves the voice. This is what I was going for.

Now, I’m working on my WITH A VENGEANCE book. It’s pretty entertaining, I keep attempting to write a sex scene but I get embarrassed and put it down, blushing like some Virgin Mary whose favorite author isn’t the Queen of Sex Scenes, Laurell K. Hamilton.

Here in the next few days I’m going to be posting some new book trailers…representing for some of my fellow-authors. Other than that, it’s going to be a weekend full of pumpkins and apple cider. God, I love fall. Okay, peeps. Have a great weekend and stay out of trouble!

Sometimes I think a dream of becoming an astronaut would have been more sensible.
