Back to work!

I found lots of inspiration in Greece. Yesterday I spent the day reading then fleshing out the first scene of the sequel to DDCB, my first novel with my co-writer as Zari Reede. I have been itching to write, but have been trying to practice finishing what I start. I have a book that is 20,000 words into a story that needs attention, and We are editing a second book that is complete for future submission. I promised not to start anything else until the editing is complete, but I was inspired and needed to work! The manuscript that has been accepted is with an editor now, so I would be wasting my time to edit whats currently being edited. We are a third of the way through on the edit for book two, but had put it aside to focus on book one. This leaves me hanging in the breeze, so I decided to do what I love. We always knew the second book would be about our bad-boy, Lenny. He is Brad Pitt hot with lots of issues. We created him in first novel as the antagonist. He was supposed to play a very small part, but he is the character you love to hate, and are routing for redemption in the end. Lenny gets redeemed in book two and gets a chance to score love. I’m so excited to write a happy ending for someone who in real life would have fallen through the cracks. Swim Suits drying, so I think I’ll work a little more.
