My wonderful hubby took my children away for the entire weekend so that I could get the first draft of novel #2 cranked out. I had been stuck in the same spot on my book for months--desperately needing a big block of time to really hash out some plot problems. I know, I know . . . it's Valentine's Day, but we did the whole romantic weekend last week in New Orleans. And, I couldn't ask for a better gift. So thank you, John, a million times!!
My first novel is out with a few people, and I'm playing the waiting game with it right now. But, I kept getting rejections from agents saying that they liked my writing, but they wanted to see something a little more plot driven. Did I have anything like that?? Well, yes . . . book #2 definitely has more pop complete with crazy car chases, repressed memories, an abduction . . .
So, here it is (to the left of the Heineken). My first draft. Ready to be read by Katie and . . . anyone else out there willing to take a look for me??
And, now I'm off to have sushi with my friend who's in town for a book signing, and then I'm back to work in the morning.
Oh, and this is totally off the subject, but my new issue of Southern Living arrived today and guess who's in it?? My three beautiful girls. Check it out here.
