Three in a row...

Good reviews, that is, for my rom com novella, TABLE FOR TWO. This one is from The Long and the Short Of It. If you read the entire review and leave a comment in the box beneath, the book could win their Book of the Week honor. :) Either way, this brightened my evening considerably.

The Long and the Short of It -- 4.5 books
"Table for Two is a sweet read but more than that it is an engaging tale of two people who just needed to take the time to get to know one another... this charming contemporary story is one I recommend highly." Review by Orange Blossom

One down, three to go...

Finally. I finished BROKEN, the second book of The Sentinels. I think this is the fastest I've ever written a full-length novel -- about 87k in around four months. IF I can keep myself working at this pace, I'll actually be able to do more stories in a shorter amount of time. Yeah, that's almost like saying: "What else could go wrong?"

Anyhow, I'm halfway through with the polishing phase. Trying not to overthink the plot or second-guess myself too much. It's difficult, however. Had some bad news on a personal front this week. Creativity, drive and determination have taken a big hit -- but I'm fighting to keep going and not let myself wallow or fret.

Again, easier said than done. :\

Change of plans

I'm a little bit bummed at the moment. My wonderful editor and her boss decided it would be best to give DREAM WALK one more line edit before setting it in stone. Or, um, pixels?

So, the upshot is my release date is now pending. I'll post the new date as soon as I know it myself.

No worries, I'd rather take a little more time than worry we might have missed a typo here or continuity issue there. Better safe than sorry -- and better to produce the best book possible. :)

In the meantime, you can still read two excerpts ... I suppose I should label them "unedited" at this point, but I don't think those portions of the book changed since the last run-through.
