I have two surprises to discuss today.
One has to do with writing, the other has to do with a giveaway. So, stick with me.
If you’re a writer, have you ever been writing a scene, and surprise, surprise, a character pops up that you never heard of before? This character suddenly makes a splash onto the scene, and you didn’t even know s/he existed before.
That happened to me as I’ve been writing my second novel. By the way, it’s really slow going. I’m disappointed, because I hoped this second one would go faster. Not only do I struggle with just getting through my first draft without stopping to edit, but life has been getting in the way as well. Not to mention, this is a very complicated plot.
But, I digress. Back to a sudden character.
I was writing for a character named Tobias Jones. He is pretty much of a cad and I didn’t think he could fall in love, until Gina came into the picture. You see, there were no plans for Gina, or any woman he could fall in love with. She just happened upon him one day. I don’t know where she came from, but she caught his attention like no one else. I really like how she handles Tobias, and so does he. I doubt he’ll ever settle down, even with Gina, but one can never tell. I didn’t even know she existed before, so who knows where she’ll lead me?
Now, onto my second surprise. Starting this Friday, May 26th, my short story memoir anthology, Home Avenue will be free for twenty-four hours. So, get it while it’s hot.
Oh, I guess there are three surprises, because my novel, Whit’s End will be on sale for .99 cents starting Friday the 26th and going through Memorial Day weekend. I’d love an even-two-dozen reviews on the novel, or even a baker’s dozen would be nice. So, check it out if you can.
I’ll be back on Friday to remind you about the book deals. Until then ….
