T-minus one month until Sweet Disgrace! I realized that with a bit of panic tonight. What is happening to September? It’s flying by like crazy. Of course, that could be because I need to get the WIP wrapped up and to my editor by October 1. Tonight I broke 30K (yay!) and my aim is 45K for this one, so, I have some work ahead to meet the deadline. This book is the sequel to Disgrace, and if all’s well and everything goes according to plan we could be looking at an April ’11 release. I hope so, anyway.
Once that’s done, I plan to spend the rest of October brainstorming Gabriella’s book, because I would like for it to be my NaNoWriMo novel. Now, I’ve never done NaNoWriMo before, but I’ve done something similar over at Romance Divas–they sometimes do monthly challenges like that. It was how I got through the last half of Rock Me in less than a month when the first half had taken me forever. So I’m shooting for Gabby to be finished up by the end of November, but even if I don’t succeed–November is such a hectic month for me; whose idea was it to make us write an entire novel in NOVEMBER, anyway?–I hope she’s done at least by the end of the year.
I already know what’s going on with her. Want a few hints, in no particular order? Cruise. Jilted at the altar. Fake engagement. Hee hee. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun to write. And of course old beloved characters will stop in–I’m thinking this one will actually have a lot of Kelsey. She and Gabby are very close.
So that’s a run-down of the projects on the front burner. I know I haven’t mentioned Ghost and Macy, and I still have plans for them; I’ve actually started their story. It might be something I look at in October while I’m gearing up for the craziness of November, but I’m not making any promises.
On another note, the hubby and I saw Machete last night. CRAZY. The moment we saw the faux-trailer in Grindhouse, he said that one needed to really be made (I think he said that about all of them, though). He got his wish, and he’s already proclaimed it the greatest movie ever committed to film. LOL. There are scenes that definitely have to be seen to be believed, and I got a laugh out of the over-abundance of hot, scantily clad (if not outright naked), platform-shod women bearing heavy weaponry. Every guy’s fantasy, I suppose? I have one thing to say, though…the scene where Michelle Rodriguez emerges from the back of the ambulance? Hell, I wanted her. =D
Now if we can just convince Hollywood to green light Werewolf Women of the SS…
‘Til next time!
