And now I hope all of you have that damn Garth Brooks song floating through your head. heh
At least it makes an appropriate blog post title.
I'm editing (again) my suspense. I have this AWFUL habit of putting the wrong tags on dialogue. And now that it's been pointed out to me, Thanks Marsha!, I'm fixing it.
I wrote 2000 words yesterday and 4000 words the day before on book 1 of the FBS. Bippin' right along. For some reason, I was in Editor Mode today.
Romance Junkies is having a contest where authors can post a chapter of their book and have the opportunity to have said book underneath Tova's nose. On her desk. And whoo! What fun.
I've put in a chapter, which I've mentioned in an earlier blog post. I even used a pseudonym. I will say that mine hasn't been posted yet. New entries are posted Mondays. I followed the rules. All entries are supposed to have a nom de plume. And we are NOT allowed to advertise our entries because then it's by popular vote and not merit, perhaps. I can appreciate this rule. But I also know of another writer who advertised her entry on another loop, and she didn't get busted. Remember the HQN scandal? All that number manipulating? God.
The wonderful ladies at Romance Junkies can guard against that, but they don't have eyes everywhere. And this particular person really pissed me off. I even wrote chaoscat and asked. I figured, HEY!, I have a few friends. I could lobby for my work. But then I realized that if the work doesn't stand on its own, what good is it?
So I will let well enough alone. Here's the link for the Romance Junkies contest:
Check it out each Monday and vote for your favorite entry. There are some good ones. And you'll help one lucky writer out there with their dream.
