I'm Back!

Sorry for the unplanned hiatus. The last few weekends were VERY busy and I do most of my blog writing on the weekend.

I do have plans for this week! On Thursday I have an interview of an author of a book that I reviewed here recently–one of the books I loved. I have not done an interview in a long time and I am excited to have her.

I also just finished another infographic! I enjoy putting those together and I’m thinking of writing a series of blog posts based on this latest infographic. I’ll try to get that posted on Tuesday.

I have also been VERY busy with writing. I finished revising my 82,000 word Austenpunk urban fantasy, which I finally named Magic by Starlight. I love that title, and I love my changes. It’s amazing how much I ripped up things that I thought were quite good back when I wrote it the first time. We’re talking scenes that I loved. When I read them this time? Not so much love there.

Soon, I hope to be able to take it through my Manuscript Clean-Up Process. Oh look! Another potential infographic!

      Thanks. I’ll be doing query practice on you guys in a few days!

    Such a lovely title. Is this Austenpunk tale by any chance the one we saw hints and glimmers of, back when you were running Writer Wednesday? (I hope, I hope!)

      It is the same one! I’m glad you enjoyed it enough to remember it!

  3. I hope things have calmed down again. {Smile}

    It’s interesting how our feelings about what we’ve written change. I’ve also found scenes I loved when I wrote them needed serious revision if I come back to the story a few months or years later. {Smile}

      Definitely. There was one scene where I was increasing the romantic tension without satisfying any of it. I just loved it a few years ago.

      Upon the reread, I decided that three quarters of the book was enough to torment them (and the reader), so I finally gave them a kiss.
