Today I sent back the second round of edits on the French footballer story. I’m really pleased with how it’s shaping up. Every time I come back to it, I like this story and these characters more.
I didn’t get picked for the top 50 in the So You Think You Can Write contest. It’s still possible that they could request a partial or a full in the next couple of weeks, and even if they don’t, I’ll finish the revisions and submit it through slush. I’ve got a full draft and I think a pretty good handle on the story and characters. I suspect one of the reasons it didn’t get picked was not enough hero/heroine interaction in the first chapter, so I’ll have a think about how to change that, too.
Last Night of the Summer (formerly known as Hot Summer Night) is coming soon! I know, I’ve been promising this for months, but it really is nearly there now. It’s finished and edited. I just need to get it proofed and formatted and so on. Hopefully out by the end of the month. It has a new cover to match my other books and its new title.
If you want to know when it’s available to buy, the easiest thing to do is sign up for my newsletter. It’s not really a newsletter. I won’t be in your inbox with cute snippets of info about my writerly life or any of that nonsense. I’ll just send info when I have a new book available, so you’ll never miss out.
