Like the title says, see above, Baring it All is out now, and it’s a short story on sale for .99 cents. It’s quite different in voice from Hero of My Heart, which was all angst and addiction and sexual tension. There’s sexual tension in this one, you know, ’cause it’s a romance, but it’s pretty joyful in its tone and I hope is an enjoyable read.
What Not to Bare comes out in October, and is also in that same joyful tone, and I should be getting final copy edits on that very soon. I am working on my potential next Megan Caldwell title, for the umpteenth time, as I swap third-person point-of-view to a first-person point-of-view, and rewrite some other scenes. I am falling in love with this book all over again, which is good, since my agent will be submitting it soon to my publisher.
And–in other news, it’s hot in NYC, my son is about to be a high schooler, and I still like iced coffee, wuxia movies, enormous hoop earrings, and Allen Stone’s vocals.
This is the cover for my June 24th release, a novella title Baring It All (duh–as you can see!). It was a blast to write, it is way lighter in tone than Hero of My Heart, and matches the tone and setting of my October full-length, What Not to Bare.
I’ve finished the synopsis for Don’t You Want Me, Baby? and have sent it to two trusted readers who will shred it for me. The sample chapters have been tweaked, but I need to read them again and make sure they contain all the oomph I’m envisioning the book having.
…And I’ve re-opened, and re-thought, an erotic historical I wrote a few years ago; I’m thinking of new ways to approach the story, and then I’m not sure what I’ll do with it. Except that it’ll be fun to have it out there.
I’m working on a new way of plotting out a book (which is basically to say I AM plotting out a book, whereas I usually just start with one scene, have the Dark Moment in mind, and start writing), and it’s bringing the fact that I don’t really have a clue about what’s happening in my story even more clearly.
But this book should be better than the last, shouldn’t it?, so I have to plot out more than usual.
Which is what I am trying to do.
I took a Zumba class today, and that was a blast! I’m excited to go again, although I can’t do the shoulder shimmy thing yet. Maybe not ever. But I can move my hips, thank goodness.
And other than the plotting and the hip-shaking, not much going on.
Chances are good that if you’re here, you’ve already read some of my work, but if by chance you haven’t, my publisher has lowered the price of Vanity Fareto $2.99 in e across all e-formats. And Hero of My Heart, my historical romance, is always $2.99. (These are the Amazon links, but the price is good everywhere).
