As I write this post, I am actively fighting the urge to devour the remaining Russell Stover chocolate marshmallow eggs in the pantry.
Just saying. I really need to get rid of this leftover Easter candy. Sugar comas = lost productivity! I get way too fidgety to write compelling dialogue when I’m all amped up on sugar. Caffeine is another story. I can drown in coffee and it only makes my stuff more compelling. LOL!
Today, I finished the first draft of Nothing Ventured. I love it. If you’ve been on my Facebook page or seen my recent tweets, you already know this. We’ve established that it’s narcissistic but, whatever.
The plot twists didn’t come easy…I drew a lot of inspiration from Fuel’s greatest hits, but it worked. =)
I’m hoping my beta readers enjoy it just as much as I did, three times over. Of course, there are certain scenes I might have read more than three times, but we’ll just leave it at that…
I love the characters that really evolve the most throughout a novel. The more they change, the more invested I become. That’s one of the reasons why I’m totally crushing on my latest hero, Chris Camden, who bears a striking resemblance to this young gentleman below.
And here is my heroine, Mia Bradshaw. They look so good together, don’t they? =)
So now I pretty much have two-thirds of The Venture Series written. And it feels awesome. I’ve still got editing to do (hopefully not as much as I did for Unlikely Venture!), but I’m excited!
I can’t wait to share them with you! Bear with me as I prepare to navigate this whole publishing universe!
