Hitting the End

It’s been a while, so it feels extra great to be able to say that I’ve hit the end on a story, Bound by Sunlight. Of course, really that’s just the first draft, so now I have to go do some revising, find someone to critique it and is willing to tell me if I’m off my rocker or if this story is workable, revise it again, then submit. I’m going to give it two weeks to percolate before I go back to do the first round of revisions.

In the meantime, I’ve returned to a piece I’ve been working on for a while, Keeping Claire. I started and restarted this thing four or five times. At one point, when I wasn’t sure quite what I wanted to do with it, I started Bound by Sunlight. Then I went back and forth on both of them for a while before BbS took over. Now I’m excited to get back to Claire and Ryan, and though they keep throwing me curve balls, I’m pretty sure I know what’s going to happen to them. Poor Ryan’s just bungled big time, and I’m looking forward to how he’s going to get back on Claire’s good side. She’s had a tough life and her patience is pretty thin, so he’s going to have to work his butt off. I can’t wait. 😛

    😀 Any chance that the story you finished is about Adam and Myra or a sequel to Perfect Formation? Or any guestimate for publication date?

    Ah, berryblu, I’m sorry to say, no, it’s neither of those. However, I do have Adam and Myra started, as well as the start of something with one of Caleb’s coworkers. You made my day, though, just by asking! 😀

    Any hints??? 😉

    Jeeze, berryblu, you’re all “want, want, want”. Luckily that’s exactly what I want in a reader! :p

    Let’s see. What I sort of avoided saying in that post is that I’m a wee bit nervous about BbS, so I’m kind of waiting to see what someone else thinks about it before I say too much. It’s entirely possible they’ll have to think of a nice way to tell me to shove it under the bed and leave it here. But let me give it a shot, see if it sounds interesting to anyone other than me, lol.

    Kyriana needs help, and she thinks she’s found just the mage to give it to her. Connul Graysn is reputed to be a good man, an excellent mage, and a sexual master. Just the skills she needs to free her from the evil bastard who’s ruining her life. Of course, first she has to convince Connul that she has a good reason for being in his private study without an invitation. Or a key. Too bad the evil mage’s spell keeps her from saying his name or revealing his plans. Guess she’ll have to use body language to convince Connul she’s not there to bring him harm.

    Yikes, that’s pretty rough. If the reader tells me I haven’t insulted an entire community of people, I promise to put up a real blurb. 😀

    😀 Oh, yes. Sounds very good. Hot mage, body language, secrets, evil villain! 🙂 Want more . . . of course!

    I like Kyriana facing Connul with no invite or key or way to say what’s going on. 🙂 Interesting situation!

    Oh, I meant to ask, is BbS the story about the Fae? Is Kyriana or Connul Fae? 😀

    of course like your web-site but you have to take a look
    at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very
    bothersome to tell the truth then again I’ll surely come back again.
