It's approaching that time of year again when we're reminded to write fast and consistently. But fall or not, I'm still writing hot...getting ready to warm up my readers come spring.
This year keeping my characters' names straight and out of each others' books has been a challenge. Never work on so many stories you have to write XX said, "Hey there, YY did you see that broad in the see-through bathing suit?" Or Hero #1 approached the heroine while hero #2 ran his hand down her back. The capital H designated #1 is an alpha male...so at least I can keep their character traits separate. Don't worry I'm getting ready to name them.
Hot in the Tropics is a novella, my NaNoWriMo challenge this year. Shorter than the required 40,000 words because I'm writing it for a multi-author anthology, it will force me to complete a second book in order to meet the requirements.
The second story is another book I planned to release in the spring, but instead, I'll be waiting to release it right before summer. Hot Highland Summer part of the Erotic Journeys series will take you back to Collin's estate in Scotland (Hot Highland Fling) and this time, Aisla's best friend, Naomi is house sitting and looking for a Highland hunk to take her mind off her broken heart. Daegus is just the man to fill the bill. See they have names.
But the kicker is I'm also working on another book, the first literary fiction novel I've ever written. So far I've been dictating the story into WATTPAD--during my first excursion into that social media. The story takes place in the Hamptons on the south shore of Long Island. This will be another first for me as I revisit my childhood and the village I cherished until as an adult I learned that hard lesson ...you can't go home again. Off Season is a fictional story set in a small beach town. It delves into the background of the families who've lived there for generations, while the New York city wealthy and famous invaded the quiet beach village on weekends and summers. Read about the under current of power and control coming in the fall of 2016.
There you have it. The pressure is on. Anyone have any comments or advice about staying focused. One book a day? or should I do as I've been trying to do? Set daily goals for each after writing the synopsis for each. Any other ideas to offer? I know many of you are type A organizers.
