Good Monday All!
Happy (belated) Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms out there! I hope your day turned out just the way you wanted.
How was last week and the weekend for you? Did you do anything fun? Read anything fantastic? See any great movies? Please share!
My week was absolutely spectacular. As you know, Zach, Savannah and I went away together to hammer out some details and get to the end of their story. And I'm pleased to announce that we did! Yippee! My first draft manuscripts are always beautiful messes, full of plot holes big enough to drive a semi through, enough loose threads to knit a sweater, and so much head hopping it could cause an epidemic of migraines. I always go through my first draft with a notepad beside me and a "What in the world was I thinking?" kind of feeling. LOL This is the fun part!
Other than all those things I need to do to fix it into a readable book, I am very pleased with the outcome. Savannah and Zach are both flawed individuals, but turned out stronger and much more endearing than I anticipated. I adore them. And Zach? Well, let's just say that small town sheriffs can be seriously HOT! (:
Oh, and I have an official title! MIDNIGHT SECRETS will the first book. Yay!!! The title fits the story perfectly, which is always a good thing.
In between writing, I did manage to finish up Fifty Shades Freed which I really enjoyed. With all the controversy and so many people either hating or loving the books, getting sucked into this trilogy and enjoying it was the last thing I expected. However, I became attached to the characters and I'm so glad I read all three books. I also read and enjoyed Eloisa James' When Beauty Tamed the Beast. The hero was based on Gregory House from the TV show House and had quite a few laugh out loud moments.
This week, and the next few weeks, I'll be editing MIDNIGHT SECRETS. Deadline is looming and that always makes for some harrowing days of hair pulling, nail biting, chocolate consuming and wine drinking. Let the good times roll! (:
What about you? Read anything fabulous? And movie-wise, see anything spectacular? I've heard The Avengers is great and that Dark Shadows was a bust. I'll still see Dark Shadows, simply because that was my favorite TV show years ago and well, I adore Johnny Depp.
I'll be holed up in my writing cave again this week, so forgive my lack of response to your posts. I am reading them and sincerely appreciate all the great recommends. I always get excited when I see a book not on my list. So please keep them coming. Though we only get between 12 - 20 comments each time, the post get's between 150 - 200 views, making Monday the most viewed day. Not everyone comments but please know that you are helping lots of people out there find great books. A great service to all romance readers!
Have a wonderful week everyone. Happy reading and/or movie watching!
