Writing: Monthly update for November


Annnddd… we have another cat. We think she was dumped outside of town. She followed my husband home from a city council meeting. We called around and found out she’d been hanging out at city hall for several days. No one was looking for her and the shelters were all full. The snow and freezing weather was coming, so we took her in. Meet Harper! She’s about 5 months old now and about 5.5 pounds. And a real stinker! We love her so much!

She’s getting along great with our nearly 3 year old Cricket…

And the cantankerous 10 year old Caillou wishes the youngsters would leave him alone!

November didn’t slow down after the cat drama.

Thanksgiving festivities kicked my butt! Hopefully all of you in the states are recovering better than I did.

December 1st, we put up our little Christmas tree. We have two cats who haven’t yet experienced Christmas. So, we thought we’d use the little tree to train them. Already found ornaments on the floor and little Harper is a chewer. lol Here it is all lit up!

Now for the writing…

Current Romance WIPs:

FACING FATE – After last month’s drama, I’m happy to announce this is ready for revisions! I’ll be getting to it soon but I would first like to finish drafting the book I’m currently writing. More about that below. 

INFINITELY ENDLESS (aka Plus One) – The (VERY) rough draft of this is done! It will need a lot of revisions. I’m not sure if I will do this one after FACING FATE or wait because it is so rough. That’s what happens when I take long breaks in my drafting process rather than writing straight through.

RUNNING INTO TROUBLE (an age gap romance) – Started drafting this toward the end of the month. I flipping love it! Daniel and Riley are quickly becoming my favorite characters. I’m roughly a quarter of the way through the rough draft. Hoping to finish it before Christmas!

Here’s a little blurb: He’s trying so hard not to get involved with a woman half his age but when all she wants to do is help make his father-daughter dinner the best it can be, how can he say no?!



Word Counts:

November was better! Though, can you see the impact Thanksgiving had on me? lol

Total for the month was 20,667! Not NaNoWriMo but still a solid month!




Publishing News:

Nothing to report. I’m hoping to publish FACING FATE in late January/early February. Will keep you updated!

Read in November:

Warning I wish I’d had: Sweet Liar is NOT a standalone. It’s a part 1 of 2. Literally only the first half of the story. I was quite upset when I finished and found this out.

Magnificent Bastard is a lot of fun though. 😀

Magnificent Bastard (Sexy Flirty Dirty, #1)Sweet Liar (Dirty Sweet, #1)

Thanks for reading. Keep moving forward!
