Promo War

Well, the last two weeks have been very tedious. With the re-release of Sweet Temptations coming up i have been going through my Facebook bookmarks sending off review & release day blitz requests, as well as working on a few more teasers…

And because sales in Confessions have been so stagnant recently, I’m cooking up three more for that book.

I’m being a little dishonest with these, creating dialogue that is paraphrased and could suggest the book is something a little different. However, i think Hollywood has proven that that is ok so long as  sales go up. I’ll never forget how the Predators’ trailer showed more than a dozen alien hunters and then served up only 3. Now that was setting us up for a fall.

Unfortunately, all this promo activity has meant i haven’t gotten any writing done. Though not as many as i thought, i have more than 2,500 groups bookmarked and i still have more than half to work through :/

Once i’ve done that i’ll be back working on the Transformations story.

Thanks for all your birthday wishes, they meant a lot 🙂

Time to Do or Die

Ok, maybe i need to stop trying to write the extended ending for Sweet Temptations: The Babysitter.

The problem is i feel like i’m writing the beginning, not an ending.

I’ve started it in four different ways, but i just can’t get into it –

The blood was almost washed away. All that remained was three faint fingers of crimson swirling round the drain, unnaturally bright against the bath’s brilliant white.

Cranked all the way down, the water hit like a storm of icicles and cut straight to the bone.
Teeth gritted and hands braced flat against the shower’s white tiled wall, Richard’s naked body stiffened as he forced down the impulse to lurch away from the icy spray suddenly crashing down around him

“Goddamnit.”
Richard hit the wall. Sharp and near-crippling pain exploded through fist and up his arm as bone thumped porcelain hard enough to have a wet slap echo twice around the shower’s white tiled walls before being smothered by the icy spray dousing his hair and shoulders.

I’ve been working on it for a little over a month, with just over a month left now before the deadline. So it’s do or die time. Honestly, I think my best chance would be to read through it from the beginning and do an edit/rewrite from the beginning then start from there. But i don’t think i have enough time.

Nothing Much to Report

Afraid i haven’t had much on this week, my current fixation for the month is adding in the new ending for Sweet Temptations before I have to send it off to Excessica. It’s not the most vital thing in the world as this is just something i’m doing to give it an extra spice, like the director’s cut of an already released movie… only an author’s cut lol.

An interesting thing happened yesterday, i got approached by a fan on Fanfiction.net in regards to finishing off Just For the Night as well as info on my other in progress  works. At the moment that story is fourth in line, but if any of you would like me to finish it sooner, Commission me to and i’ll start work  on it immediately. That goes for any of my other stories you’d like to see done. Just thought i should let everyone know that is an option lol
