A New Beginning

I'm finally getting into the swing of things with the revisions for Absolutely, Positively. It hasn't been easy. I had to take it from dark (serial killer, pedophile) to light (bye, bye serial killer, pedophile). I originally wrote that book thinking the Lucy series was going darker, toward thriller territory. But that all changed, and I have to admit I'm glad. I really love writing quirky, light books with tons of characterization and wacky plots.

Part of my problem has been that I've been trying to make what I had work. Tweaking, deleting, editing. Rinse, repeat. It took a while just to admit it wasn't working. The mood of the book kept interfering. Hard to write light when you're immersed in dark. So I've had to start from scratch.

Much, much better. Love the tone, the characters, the story. Not sure when my deadline is for this book. Its tentative release is Feb. 2011, so I think I have some time. Not a lot, but enough. So, here's to hoping that I don't hit anymore snags! And that I won't have to start all over again anytime soon.


  1. I'm glad taking it light and starting anew helped you moved the revisions along.

    BTW, Goodreads Giveaway is giving away Truly, Madly.

    Have a good Monday.

  2. They're getting there, Dru! Got my five pages in this morning, so now I'm going to brave a few stores.

    And thanks for letting me know about Goodreads! I hadn't known.
