I spent most of the day retooling the plot of my current “labor of love” because it was getting too far off course. OK, that is putting it mildly. My characters decided to make me their bitch and completely train-wrecked my fucking story. Yeah, that sounds more like what happened. So, I stopped writing, pulled out the tablet (which I then proceeded to drop, but luckily, it’s OK) and re-tooled the plot, sub-plot, and plot twist. And then went back and re-wrote / deleted / changed things to make everything fall in line.
And then killed one of my characters off as an example to the others.
Everything is going much better now. 🙂
In other author news, Amore: A Love Story is available for preorder! When you order it, it will be wirelessly sent to your device on February 1st. I plan on doing more of my titles this way (way easier than waiting until the last minute), and I’ll announce it on social media and in these pages as I do so. So, keep your eyes peeled. If you do preorder it, send me a screenshot of your order, and I’ll send you a special thank you surprise as a token of my appreciation. Seriously.
Also: The Secret Life of Miel paperback version is now live! The audiobook is still being recorded, but the eBook and paperback are available for sale now. It’s my darkest, most profound story yet about love and the occult. If you’re a fan of the paranormal, I’m sure you’ll love it. Oh, yeah, and there’s a ton of sex in it, too. Just so you know.
Anyway, Natalie (my pregnant assistant / big brothers baby momma who I’m about to put in a choke hold if she doesn’t quit throwing popcorn at me while I’m trying to write this motherfucking entry) is over here jumping up and down on the couch and waiting impatiently for me to get off the computer so we can watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on Netflix, so I better close for now. You know how the pregnant persuasion gets…
