May has started, and I’m about to leave for a 4-day mini trip to Cologne to see a musical with my sister and a friend. But before I travel, I wanted to let you know what I’ve been up to in April.
The most exciting thing is that I’ve started writing the first draft of my new novel, Heart Trouble. It’s a really unusual novel–a contemporary romance in a medical setting (an emergency department), but it also has a paranormal twist. No vampires or shape-shifters, but… well, I guess you’ll have to wait and see.
I’m about 45,000 words into the story, so I might be about halfway through. Hard to tell, but what I can tell you is that I’m having a lot of fun with this novel.
In other good news, I did the final proofread on my upcoming historical romance Shaken to the Core. All looks good, so it’ll be just a few more weeks until the novel is published.
On the editing front, I edited several of the short stories for our “book people” anthology, Finding Ms. Write, for which I also contributed a short story. I also had the pleasure of working with fellow Ylva Publishing author Catherine Lane on her upcoming lesbian romance Public Domain.
So, let’s take a look at my working hours in April:
Check back at the beginning of June, when I’ll be getting ready for another trip–the Lesvos Lesfic book event in Greece.
