WIP Wednesday – Unchained by a Forbidden Love complete in first draft!


I had hoped to make this announcement earlier than November 1st, but I’ve finally completed the first draft of Unchained by a Forbidden Love, Fuery and Shaia’s book in the Eternal Mates series.

It’s been a long time coming. I started writing this book in the summer, before I decided to set it aside to write my three tiger shifter books in the series. I picked it up again in August, and between hitting a creative wall and real life stuff, it’s taken me until now to type the final few words on the page.

All in all, I spent 25 days working on this book, clocking up 105,000 words in that time. That’s far longer than it normally takes me to write a novel of this length, but with my upper back / neck / shoulder and arms problems (I have terrible ulnar nerve issues from too much writing – it’s like carpal tunnel, but it’s my ulnar nerves instead) I just can’t write as many words each day anymore, not without causing myself excruciating pain that slows me down even more. So, slow and steady wins the race. I miss those days of clocking up 10,000 words in a day though!

At least the first draft is done, and my second draft is chewing through a whole ream of paper now as I print it so it’s ready for me to read over once I start the editing process.

I’m not going to make any promises about the release date for this one, but expect to see it before the end of the year. Once I get a feel of the shape it’s in, I’ll be able to plan when it will be ready for sale.

But I can promise I won’t keep you waiting any longer than necessary!

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