WIP Wednesday – Inspiration strikes in the strangest places!


I’ve been making slow progress this last week on Unchained by a Forbidden Love, Fuery and Shaia’s book in the Eternal Mates series.

I hit another stumbling block that saw me grind to a halt. Something just wasn’t right and it was slowing me down. I wasn’t sure what it was…

Until I was in the shower this morning, and I thought about the scene I had become stuck on, and realised it needed changing. And then, I realised I needed to tweak some other things in the remaining chapters in order to make them work. I wasn’t sure about the story from this point forwards anyway, something felt off about it, just not quite right… but as I began thinking about it, it all sort of fell into place in a way it had refused to do before.

So rather than writing more for the book today, I’ve been revising the outline, moving things around, removing some stuff, and layering the new stuff in to make it all work with the plan that came to me this morning in the shower.

I’m feeling much better about the book now, and it’s finally feeling right, like this was the way it was always meant to be and I just got muddled somewhere and wrote it wrong the first time around. I can finally see the light, which is more than we can say for the hero, Fuery 🙂

I had really wanted to get the book completed in first draft this week, but I still have another 10 chapters to write, so I’m thinking it’s going to be done by end of next week, and then I’ll move on to editing it.

I also have an update for my audio books! I’ve completed my check of Awakened by a Demoness, and once the final edits are back from my narrator, I’ll be ready to hit the go button on this audio book and it will be in stores a couple of weeks later. I’m thinking it will be available at the end of the month. I’m about to start listening through Haunted by the King of Death, and my awesome narrator has already begun work on Turned by a Tiger. It’s all go!

In the meantime, Possessed by a Dark Warrior is now available and I’ll be updating my website with links for the audio book as they become available. Yay!

Wish me words!

As always, my comments are open, and I’d love to hear from you!
