Trying


It's hard to remember everything I have to do in a day, so blogging is probably last on the list. As the infrequency of my blogging.

So to what I have been doing writing wise, I have been working on another round of editing on Blue-Fire, (thanks to my editor have learnt a heck of a lot). I got chapter 10 finished of Blood Rich, and finally moved on to chapter 11. I'm having a few plot issues, so need to figure those out before I can move forward.


Also started a second instalment to Blue-Fire, but not sure where that is going either. I really must stop, starting new books until I have finished a heap of my other works in progress first.


Dangerous Moonlight was submitted to two separate excellent publishers, I got a email from on saying they have put it on an 'acquiring list' I think that means they will simply have a closer look at it, but that could take any where up to six months! Sigh. Yes, patients is a virtue. Until then I will keep my nose down and keep writing my next master piece, well one day one of my books will be a Master Piece. You have to have some confidence in your abilities to succeed.


I've added another of my Photo shop pics to help keep me inspired, this one is for 'Blood Rich'.

Addiction


It's taken me a few years to realise that I have an obsession with the colour blue! And, I have an addition to reading and writing, I can't seem to go a day without writing or reading something. I've lost count how many books I have in my library!

Blood Rich is going slowly but well, I recently got new part time job to help pay for my addiction. I will have to try and focus a bit more to get things completed.

Dangerous Moonlight is finished and returned from my proof reader, hopefully I will be able to submit it in the next day or two. Fingers crossed for this one.

I have been playing around in photo shop and created a picture to help keep me inspired, its on my website as well.

Learning Curve

Everything that I read and write is a continues learning curve. I work hard at trying to improve my craft with every step.

I've been reading editor blogs today, from various sites. Hoping to get that special 'tip' that will help make my next submission stand out from the rest.

Since I got serious about wanting to be published, I became more serious about my education especially concerning spelling, grammar and punctuation. Of which I am hopeless, but with hard work and dedication I am slowly improving. But I still adore the person who created spell check!

The last few days have seen me working hard on 'Dangerous Moonlight.' My proofreader has been great in clearly pointing out my main writing errors.

I've also been working slowly on 'Blood Rich' this book has a darker tone than 'Dangerous Moonlight' but still I haven't been able to help slip a few bits of humor in.
