guest blogger...

I’m guest blogger over on Magical Musings today, so if you’d like to read about the secret to getting published, head on over there and check it out.

In other writing news….well, there’s not a whole lot. I’ve been busy doing the final edit on Riley 7, getting it ready to send to Anne, my editor. The wonderful Miriam (my agent) has done a read through of it, and found no major mistakes, so that’s always a bonus. She also said the emotional punch at the end almost floored her, which is brilliant, because that’s exactly what I was hoping for. It’s always good when writing turns out the way its supposed to :)

Other than that, I’ve been busy getting things ready for my trip to the Romantic Times conference. Trying to figure out what to bring to wear, as well as trying to fit all the promotional stuff into my case, is always a hassle. Especially with the tight weight policies the airlines have these days. (You know, I’m ten kilos lighter than I was at this time last year–you’d think they’d let me bring that extra in goodies! But no…. :) )

one lot of edits down...

one lot to go. (well, at least until my editor gets her hands on it, anyway!) I’ve added all those little bits and pieces to Riley 7 that I had to add, and fixed up all the grammar and spelling errors I could find. Now I just have to print the thing out and do a read through–this usually finds a lot of the stuff I missed in the first read through. When that’s done, I can send the book to my editor and get back to writing the next book due. Which is Mercy Burns, the follow-up to Destiny Kills. I have a head start on this one, as I’ve already done 90 pages of it. Yesterday I actually sat down and attempted plotting the thing, but I couldn’t really get into it. I think I’ll need to write a bit more, get to know the characters again, before any attempt at plotting will be successful. Of course, the muse also wants to write the ‘reward’ book and is throwing lots of ideas my way, so I might have to write both for a while, just to prevent muse mutiny. :)
