Working in education, there isn’t much time during the school year to complete some of my first drafts. I always write SOMETHING during the year (remember NaNoWriMo in November?) but it’s difficult to get from random thoughts to even the first draft.
I set a personal record today and finished two first drafts – yes, you read the correctly…TWO!
The first manuscript is for Destruction of Wild Cats – the follow-up to Murder of Crows. It has the same main characters, Liam and Ellie and now they are in St. Augustine, helping those ghosts!
The second manuscript is outside my genre of Middle Grade fiction. It’s historical romance and has actually taken YEARS to write. I’m still undecided on the title but would LOVE input. It takes place with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West troupe and features a sexy cowboy (of course) and a strong-willed, sassy protagonist. It won third place for the first chapter under the title Western Promise, but recently I’ve taken to calling it Rebel Yell.
Please send me any and all suggestions!
