I hope spring is being kind to you. Here in Florida, we’ve had temperatures ranging from 90°F to the low 80°F. I prefer the 80s. Flowers are in bloom and spring showers are passing through weekly.
My urban fantasy young adult (adult crossover) has been moving forward and is with the editor for final revisions. Yay! As a writer, it’s important to celebrate small milestones. Starting a novel. Finishing a first draft. Finishing a round of edits. Sending it off for the final edits. Getting it ready to launch. So much work goes into writing a book.
The biggest part is editing though. Sometimes, you have to edit a novel so many times you get sick of reading the characters and story. It’s worth it in the end when the finished product is complete.
When I started writing professional, I hated editing. Hated it. I would have chosen being dragged through mud face-first then do edits.
Now, I love them!
I’m hoping for a mid-summer launch date for my latest novel. The new title is Enchanted Kisses. I can’t wait to share it with you.
What the story Enchanted Kisses has: romance, magic, nature, a bit of torture, heartbreak, survival, and of course, a happily ever after.
On a different note, I’ve recently tried a food delivery service. It’s healthy, organic, and vegetarian. With all my food allergies, I eat an interesting diet. I always wanted to try something like this and finally did. The smoothies are easy and great. The flatbread is okay. The chai bowls are yummy, although you have to make them the night before or let them sit for six hours plus. I haven’t tried the rice bowls yet. I’ll keep you posted on that. So far, I’d reorder more smoothies and chai bowls. Not sure about the rest.
On a Covid note, how is everyone doing with the vaccines? I haven’t had mine yet. I’m scared. LOL. I am super sensitive to medications and always suffer reactions and side effects. I KNOW I will end up sick after getting the vaccine. I’ll have to schedule it for when I can be down for a few days. Who wants to do that? Not me.
I hope you are all doing well and staying safe! As soon as I have a cover for the new book and a launch date, you will be the first to know.
Happy spring and happy reading!
What I’m binging on Netflix – The Baker and the Beauty. (Fun romance that takes place in Miami.)
