But, I did find one thing to help, and that's been Grammarly. My editor suggested it, and she was right. I love it. In fact, I'll be using it before I send books to betas or the editor again. Highlights the repeats and other things I just knew I was good at but apparently wasn't.
So, now, I can see progress.
Just signed the contract for Song of the Siren. It's a story about a merman and a broken soldier. It will be part of the Extasy Christmas anthology. Really excited about that one. The blurb?
A broken soldier, a siren, a preacher and a song. Sounds like an intro to a bad joke, but it’s the Christmas story of how a siren’s song can heal. At a time when Christmas presents are given for the holiday, Graham and Kamau will receive the gifts they’ve dreamed of for a lifetime. Each other.
I've signed up for the Summer Shorts for 2018 with plans of helping one of Kamau's brothers to find love. The image I have in my head for that one?
This one's determined to find his mate, and he's not letting anything or anyone stop him. I can't wait to start this one, but I have to get over the new story jitters first.
Broken Pieces is in second edits. It's the follow-up to Broken Bones. It took blood, sweat, and tears to finally get Broken Pieces ready for readers. Grammarly was perfect. Repetitive words, grammar, and confusing sentences. Combined with the work the editor did, it's worthy now. The blurb for that one?
Remi Devereaux is a Louisiana born detective working murder cases in Louisville, Kentucky. While shopping for game-day with the guys, he spots the most amazing person he has ever seen.
Peter Romanoff is a photographer who possesses the spirit of two creatures. Two beings that are slowly tearing him apart. He needs a Supruga, a mate, to help give him balance.
The next in line to lead a powerful coven, Peter is hunted, and the people he knows and loves are being killed. It will take Remi’s love and Peter’s skills to combat the enemy after them. Can Remi be the balance Peter needs before the coven destroys them both?
Beyond that, I still have this other book that needs to be finished, Flirty and Red. They've been impatiently waiting for their story to continue. Hang on guys, I'll be there.
Just as soon as I get my six-year-old on a regular diet of reading, convince my son that he can't be at every event at the same time, and find a way to breathe in between.
