New covers, new release coming, like I said very busy.
I am so excited that I feel like I am back to my books and wanting to write once again. It has been hard as I haven't felt like writing for a long time. I think when you get turned upside down in life that it takes a long time to get yourself back up there and focused once again.
I do feel as though I am standing straight once again and want to concentrate on my books. I am writing, not as much as I used to do, but writing none the less.
It is a sure bet I will change my mind which story to work on a few time, who am I kidding - many many times LOL.
It feel rather nice to argue with myself of the stories and even starting a new one. I wonder what surprises I have in store for myself and my readers. Who knows maybe I will share my writing on this blog. I used to send my chapters out to readers when I first started on the internet in 1995. Goodness, that was a long time back, but then I and my friends have been publishing our ebooks on the net before it was ever vogue. We were the pioneers of what everyone is doing now with independent publishing.
It is amazing :)
I will be on my way back to Maine in a couple days. Lots to look forward to as I have a new book coming out! of yeah a full summer ahead.
I say yes :)
I bet you are wondering why I would bring this subject up. I guess, I want you to know that you really can create a story. I think first you need to decide what kind of story you want to write. I will stick to romance right now :)
You see, you really should write about what you love. I love history whether it is through time travel or a historic era. If you read romance then write in romance. Oddly, I don't write in the category that I read.
One thing, keep it simple to start with. Let's say you like modern western romance. Start by picking the state you want your setting to be in, there are so many available from Arizona to the Dakotas. Will your romance be set on a ranch or in a town. Once you make these decisions we need to think about the main characters.
A little side note, you are building your story with each step you take in developing the makeup of your story. Allow, yes allow, yourself to see the images taking shape. See the ranch with fences, horses, cows and all the smaller buildings that help the ranch work. In town I see a parade with various horse and riders from the ranches about the area. There may be tribal groups from the reservation riding the paint horses they breed. I can feel the excitement in the crowd, my neighbors in the story.
Oh wait, I said "my neighbors" must be that I am getting into one of my main character's head. That is right, you see around you through their eyes and perception. She is me and I am her when I am writing or I could be in the hero's head, I do love to see it all through both sides. I want all the emotions and thoughts that make up their lives. Like right now he isn't watching the parade, he only sees her a new face in a small town and yet she looks familiar.
Chev watched her long auburn hair float on the breeze as her intense sky-blue eyes took in the passing covered wagon from times gone by. Her excitement felt contagious. He wondered if she would meet his shoulder, his hands would probably encircle her petite frame.
Oh my, he has a name and we know what she looks likes. As the story progresses we will find out a lot more about these two. For now try your imagination and see what takes shape, maybe you will see your hero meet his heart's desire.
