Sent off three chapters today, so that’s exciting 🙂 I admit, this one is going slowly, probably because it’s a transition book. I’ve never written a transition story before, so I haven’t *quite* gotten down the nuances and the flow of it. Plus, I want to make sure that it’s the best that I can write, and not just put out sub-standard fair, which the last manuscript WAS.
I just wanted to drop a line, give ya’ll updates, let you know that I’m still plugging away at Magick! Oh, there is so much more I know I wanted to say, but I totally forgot what it was. Something wise and motivational, but for the life of me, I can’t recall it. Oh, the vagaries of getting older!
Bad news- Magick won’t be released on December 17th unless my editor can work miracles. After a month of strep-throat, bronchitis, Thanksgiving, and an upper-respiratory infection that wouldn’t go away (the whole frickin house was sick…), I managed to squeek through the last 10K words on Magick, but it is going to take heavy revisions. I followed that old addage of “it doesn’t matter what you write, just write”. Eh, that’s a double-edged sword. I don’t really like where the story went, but as we all know, characters and flow have a way of taking on a life of their own. I will have to see what my editor says.
What my house looked like after a month of illness
Good news- Magick is finished- at least until the red pen comes back. I’m hoping it will only be delayed a month (fingers crossed!). In the meantime, I’m starting to read it today so I can try to anticipate what my editor comes back with and be pro-active! As much as anyone can be pro-active through a Nyquil hangover. Anyway, I digress. I have a month of light work ahead of me, so that’s plenty of time to get Magick polished and off for publishing. Then it’s on to Solstice, Harley and Damien’s story, and that’s going to be a doosie! Stayed tuned for updates! And maybe some little tidbits 🙂
I love movies. I used to work in a movie theater (actually, MANY movie theater’s, just not all at once) just so I can see movies for free. I have a ridiculously large DVD collection, and I can’t answer the question: what is your favorite movie.
So, I tend to visualize actor’s when I’m writing and place them in the part of my characters. Not that I base the character on the actor, but the actor on the character. Today, in honor of it being FREE on Amazon, I bring you my cast for Choices!
Disagree with any of my choices (pun totally intended)? Absolutely love one? Let me know! If you haven’t read Choices, you can get a FREE Kindle version today only at Amazon! Enjoy!
In honor of Choices being offered free tomorrow on Amazon, I thought I would entertain you with the places that share the story with the characters 🙂
Tomorrow, I’ll bring you the “cast” of Choices-at least in my mind!
Logan’s ranch house
Their first ride…
The Valentine’s Day Dance
Just some goofiness to liven up the day 🙂
I am so excited! I made it on to THREE Bestseller’s lists! I can now say that I am an Amazon Bestselling Author! GAHHHH! Okay, I made it to #23 & 24, but STILL! I never thought I would make it onto any list, let alone in the top 30 so I.am.THRILLED! Thanks to everyone who bought Eternity, because I certainly could never do it without you! Awesome!
If you find yourself without a book to read, or you want to add to your collection, my novel Choices is FREE on Amazon right now! For the next 48 hours, you can download Choices for FREE. FREE. And, if you like it once you’ve read it, please spread the word!
When her marriage to a prominent Boston surgeon collapses, Abby Stanford heads west, back to her roots and her future. She goes back to heal and rebuild her life, complete her law degree, and become a champion for the environment, as she always dreamed.
She didn’t dream on running into Logan Mackinnon.
Logan is a man of the land, of few words, and the perfect antidote to Abby’s wounded heart and pride. But is her heart ready for love again? Will Logan’s honor let him pursue a woman who is still reeling from a love lost?
So, I haven’t had time to write lately. I know, I know…bad Teresa. However, I have very good reasons, and one that can be attributed to my massive indecision issue that I carry around with me. One, work has been insane, with the additions of fresh-faced freshman interns that I have to look after. Two, school has been insane, with TWO discussions and TWO papers to write…I used to like World Geography until it became political and more sociology-like than geography-like. Three, I’ve been promoting Eternity and Choices. Especially Choices, since it’s FREE right now on Amazon, until Friday. So I’ve been busting my boongies doing that.
The other reason, the one having to do with my indecision, is….I just don’t know what book to work on! I need to work on Magick, since it’s book two of the trilogy, but I want to work on my other book too. AND I have a new story that is clamoring to be told, banging around in my head. Le sigh. What’s a girl to do? Anyone have any thoughts?
