I Finished??

I’ve got some exciting news to share…

I completed the first round of rewrites on Something More! It came out at a little over 87k words, which is 23k more than the first draft. I’m pretty pleased with the progress, to be honest. We’ll see what my alpha readers think of it…

That’s right people, I’m actually letting someone read an imperfect draft. Considering I just screwed up the courage to tell my family that I’m writing at all, this was a pretty big and nerve wracking step for me. And I’m feeling a little bipolar about the whole thing. Waiting for feedback is a cross between anxiously wishing they’d get back to you, and panicking that someone might actually be reading what you wrote. 😉

In the mean time, I’m keeping myself busy with drafting the second book in the trilogy. It’s coming along pretty slowly (I think I may have forgotten how to draft, lol), but I’m so excited to be writing it! We meet quite a few new characters, one of which is my personal favorite. 🙂

I’m sending out a newsletter in a few days, and it will have a short snippet from the beginning of Book Two in it, so if you’re not signed up for that, go subscribe! I will probably also post a few excerpts here, or on various social media, as I’m writing, so keep an eye out for those. I’ll also be working on publishing an awesome short story that will be a freebie for my subscribers, and you won’t want to miss it!

Until next month then, I’ll be busily writing! 🙂
