Cabin Fever is finally done in its second draft form. This is the only time I’ve had to write a second draft, but I’m glad that I did. I’m editing it now due to serious lack of laptop. My new one still hasn’t come and there’s been much arguing with Dell about the length of the wait!
I’ve got more time in my journey to / from work now so I can edit things much faster than before and write more too. It’s great. Leaves me little time in the evenings to work at home – such as promotion, emails, etc – but I prefer to be writing, even editing!, to working my fingers to the bone on projects like Alinar etc. It’s seriously impacts my time but does benefit me too.
I’m still number 1 in Erotica at Fictionwise.com with In Heat. I’m quite proud of it now and hope to start writing the sequel soon. It just got a FIVE ANGEL review at Fallen Angel Reviews and the reviewer loved it! She mentioned something about wanting a sequel or a series, so I’m happy to oblige. lol. It’s been number 1 for 3 weeks now and every week I expect it to slip down to number 5 or something. I’m sure that this Monday will reveal that it’s the week it happened.
The sales have been amazing – shocking in fact – and I hope I can reach the same audience with the second book.
Lack of a laptop means I’ve been forced to do things like writing up notes into my story notebooks for each upcoming one. So far I’ve taken all my scraps of paper with notes on for scenes and ideas and written up the ones for 3 Vampires Realm novels due to be written next year, The Night and Reunion.
In other news, I’m very excited to be working with a new author. I read her romantic suspense novel and just had to offer her my support with it. I don’t normally edit and critique peoples work, but her enthusiasm and style stood out to me and I see great potential in her writing. I’ve of course offered her a chance to sell it at Alinar when it’s done and I’m very excited that she accepted.
I’m also currently re-working three of my older stories -my first ones. Killing Game, a romantic suspense novel, is all but done now as it didn’t require much work. The Merciless and The Merciless: Vengeance are both going to be more work. I love both of these pirate romance stories and I’ve always been tempted to write a third.
