It's been a while since I've posted something about writing, and where I'm up to. Well as you know two of my novels have been contracted by Eternal Press. Stories which are full of suspense. I'm a tad bit proud of these two, and can't wait until they are out there for you to read. :) :)
The writing industry is tough isn't it. Late last year I had a phone call and spoke for an hour on the phone to an editor from one of the top publishing houses in Australia. She loved my romantic thriller, as some of you know, but marketing didn't know where to place it. Romance or Thriller?????
It does make me feel a little better about the direction my writing has been heading, Suspense/Thriller with romantic elements. Some may say why didn't I change it. Well, to take the romance out it would have destroyed the story, to take the suspense thriller out, well that was a heck of a lot of the story. By doing this there would be no story. I could have rewritten it but it would have been completely different and I believe in that story. Hence, it is out there looking for a home.
As for my current project, rewriting a Suspense Thriller, which I find hard work. Meaning, by changing a heck of a lot of subplots. None the less I was told also this story was crammed with too much, too many twists and turns and I was making it hard for myself. I completely understood what she meant. So at least it has direction now.
Hopefully this too will find a home sometime next year. I'm not rushing it, that is the worst thing one can do when writing. It has to flow and happen naturally. Okay off to it. Great day this morning. I enjoy being outdoors. :)
Enjoy your life. :) Oh, and be good. :) lol
