Sorry for the sporadic blogging of late. Have some personal struggles going on that take a lot of my attention. In writing news, I did have a fun announcement. I actually linked and announced it at The Deadline Dames last week, but I like the cover enough to post it again. <g> I have a story in this book coming out in the UK in March 2010. I don’t have the US release date yet.
I also finished the Norse young adult–the first in a trilogy I’m writing about eighteen year-old triplets. Since each book is a stand alone per sister, I put more romance in this one and plan to do the same with the other two. Plus, it really happened that way naturally–these characters had a lot of chemistry!
Got it to my agent last week and am soooo looking forward to hearing what she thinks. I made the mistake of pulling it up after I sent it to her and saw areas to tweak, so I shut it down fast. It’s hell being a perfectionist sometimes.
Writing through the personal struggles has been a challenge, but if there is one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s if you want something bad enough, you’ll find a way to work even when all you feel like doing is crying. I still have hope that I’ve learned enough and picked up enough skill to have this as a career. Hope is what keeps us going, what makes us work through the hard times.
I’ve already got two more ideas simmering. I’m a writer. It’s how my brain functions. 🙂
