June has been a busy yet productive month. Regretfully, I’m still off work with no money coming in, but on the upside, I have plenty of time to read and write.
This month I wrote my first novel set in the western US. Loving in Lostwood was written for a Harlequin American Romance pitch contest and the entry had to be in by June 28th. My first draft was done on time and I was able to enter the contest; amazing really as I didn’t get to start writing it until June 8th. Now I need to flesh it out and make it more descriptive and such…tweaking and editing as I go. The actual pitch is July 8th, exactly one month after the idea materialized for the story. Wish me luck! Hoping I get to pitch.
Next up on the agenda is revisions to Once in this Lifetime. Looks like it has a good chance of being my first sale. Keeping fingers crossed that my next set of revisions brings it up to par for what my editor at Wild Rose Press is looking for.
Then it’s on to Covert Mission: Sudden Love, the second book in my Triple D Ranch series.
Should be hearing on my three other novels that are with editors at the moment, one with Hqn Sp Edition and two others with Wild Rose.
Somewhere in there I have to find time to tend my flower beds. They’re growing weeds faster than flowers. lol Until next time, happy reading and writing!
