It’s been awhile cause I’ve been busy doing busy writer shit.
That’s a joke…kind of.
New Release: I did finish the first novel in my next series. As per usual, it is nothing like I’ve written before. It’s a new adult sexy dad thing. Not quite a romance. Not really a comedy. Although the early reviews all seem to think it’s funny. I guess the public will decide. Check GOT MINE here.
Query Update: I decided to send the manuscript that was kindly rejected, to an editor/proofreader. She is someone that has never read any of my work. I’m hoping that gives me a fresh perspective on my writing. She came highly recommended and works with one of my fave writers.
Technically, she is beta reading. Beta reading is when someone reads your completed WIP and critiques the shit out of it. Beta readers don’t mess with spelling, grammar, punctuation. They get to the meat and bones of the story. In my case, I want to know the following:
- Does the plot suck.
- Are the characters likable.
- Will the reader care?
- Does it flow from scene to scene?
- Does it need more romance, internal dialogue, story?
I won’t share who I’m using until the read is complete. Just so I can give an honest review of her work and how it has affected my work.
Book Signings: Here is my lastest signing schedule. I’m hoping to add a few more. One in Seattle and on in San Francisco. I’d love to meet up! (ticket info below)
