Tuesday Tidbits

From Wolf in Flight Vivian Arend 2008

The food arrived and they fell silent for a minute. Tad was suddenly ravenous and had to stop himself from inhaling the entire burger at one go. When he checked to see how Missy was fairing he was shocked to see she’d been holding her own in demolishing the mountain of food on her plate. She paused in mid chew and caught his eye.

“Oops. You going to report me to the etiquette police for behavior unbecoming to a lady?”

Missy giggled and popped the final bite of bun into her mouth.

Tad goggled at her and then smiled. “Heck no, I’m going to set you up in a contest against my partner, Shaun. He can pack it away but I think I could win a pretty big wager if you can do this again sometime.”

Tad reached for her hand to give it a squeeze. The touch of skin on skin was like grabbing a live wire; energy flowed from her into his hand sending small shocks all the way up his arm. He dropped his fingers away quickly. “Shoot. The static electricity is crazy in here.

Missy’s face wore the strangest expression. She held a hand to Tad. “Try again.”

Tad hesitated and then reached out. This time the energy didn’t snap but he still felt it, a low buzz of tingles spreading over him. It felt good.

Really good.

Too good. Tad pulled back before parts of his anatomy he didn’t want to wake heard the alarm ringing through him. “What’s that all about?” he asked.

Missy shook her head. “I’m not sure. Probably something like you said about static electricity. Some people are better conductors than others.”

“Weird.” Tad played with the fries on his plate to have something to do with his hands. His whole body was hot and he had the strange desire to pick Missy up bodily and carry her back to his apartment and ravish her for the next five days.

Well, okay, it wasn’t completely strange since she was pretty easy on the eyes but he’d never had an instant attack of the hormone kind like this before.

Celebration!

I’m cheering for managing to pump out enough words yesterday to make it over the magical line in the sand.

I’m at 50K in the Nanowrimo challenge!!

This means I finished the same day as in 2007, but I confess it was a lot harder to do. Writing so many words on a regular basis means the ‘umpph’ isn’t there for a push like Nano, and I’m going to have to really consider hard any involvement in 2009.

Now I’ll turn my energies to a few projects I’ve had on hold and hopefully get all those ms straightened out PDQ. My nano project, Future Shock, is not complete in words but it will wait for a while and eventually I think it’ll be a decent novel.

So on the table:
-complete Rocky Mountain Heat submission.
-finish revisions on Wolf in Flight and get out to readers

Plus work on more stuff around the house…cookies anyone?

Thursday Things

Enroute to Publication:

-finished edits, It took three run thrus in the end. The first took the most time since there were structural changes to the story.

Second round let us see more of the oopsies in making sentences sharper, tighter and less fussy areas.

The third round there were maybe a dozen things to fix.

The the Final Line Editor took over. She caught things like I hadn’t mentioned the hero’s profession until page 65, even though it’s mentioned in the blurb. Well, shoot, ‘I’ knew he was a wilderness guide. Can’t people read my mind? :wink: It was fun to see another person step in a make comments on the story. She even added a ‘ROTFLMAO’ comment. That’s a good thing since it supposed to be funny. I didn’t agree with everything she pointed out but I’m glad she pointed them out becasue it let me think if I meant to do the ‘error’.

For example, I use the phrase ‘full blood’ to refer to the wolves at one point. Correct grammer would be full blooded but that’s not what I imagined them to say. So I was clear which way I choose to go with it.

She also made some nice comments on the storyline and characters and the fact this was book one. Goodie!~

So edits are done.

Excerpt for back of books is picked out (thank you Sandie!!) and an excerpt will be up on the Samhain ‘Coming soon’ page within the week.

I think the last thing I’m waiting on is the cover.
————————–

I’m slowly getting everything together I need to submit Rocky Mountain Heat. I’m having a major problem with the blurb for some silly reason! After this weekend I hope to finalize everythign and submit by the 20th. Things are looking good so far…

Another First!!

I got my first… wait for it….

Rejection.

:) Now I know I’m suppose to be all upset and everything, but I’m not really. I’ve learned more since I submitted it and think I can do a little revising and make it better. Then it’ll be off to another publisher to try and find a home.

Got some nice comments on it. Good feedback, just not what they needed. I can see that. The story is The Wind and The Sun, and it’s definitely got its own feel. Might not fit with an anothogy too easy. I might need to do another couple fables to accompany it.

But for now it’ll be tucked aside and I’ll work these other fires first.

Good thing it’s nano and I’m way too busy to get upset. :wink:

Nahhh, it’s not my nature. Writing is fun and TWTS will eventaully find a home.

Off to write like mad….

Nano intrudes on Life

The usual book review of Monday’s just ain’t happening today. It’s day three of Nanowrimo and I’m switching stories, putting me only 3K behind where I hoped to be.

But that’s okay, because I finished 2nd edits on Wolf Signs. YEHA!!

Insert little snoopy dance here…

And I’m ready to do final touch ups on the cowboys, getting them ready to submit. Lots of great feedback from my friends… what a difference 6 months makes. I submitted Wolf Signs without anyone reading it ahead of time, Rocky Mountain Heat has been read by 5 people and everyone of them has made the story better with their suggestions.

I’m off to read my previous words from Future Shock and add at least 1K to the story today. Goals are good things.
