Break out the bubbly! Toot the noisemakers! One Night with a Rake has landed in a bookstore near you. I'm excited about this story for so many reasons, but mostly because I love the characters.
While I love One Night with a Rake now, it's true that we writers never love our stories quite so much as when they are finished. It's easy to love a gorgeous cover and ringing prose that took a number of sharp eyes to shine up.
It's the birthing process of a book that's work. The knitting together of all the plot's bones and fleshing out the characters till they breathe on their own. It's pounding out the word count each day and pressing forward into the mist, hoping you haven't lost the thread of the narrative somewhere along the way.
That's why sometimes writers need to stop and refill their creative cup. And that's what I just finished doing. I haven't been in my usual writing chair with a little dog snugged by my hip. For the past few days, I've been on a cruise ship, sailing around the British Isles with the love of my life, my DH. We celebrated my 4th year of being cancer free and our anniversary by running away together.
Of course, I also did research for future stories... Just don't tell my DH. He thinks the trip was all about him!
