This will be my third foray into NaNoWriMo and I hope to be able to say I’ve won for the 3rd time on November 30, 2011. My first NaNo project was 2009 and that story was published by Desert Breeze Publishing in July 2011- Lots of work and revisions went into it AFTER November 2009- it certainly wasn’t acceptable as first written. The cover is on the side bar here. Redemption for the Devil was a definite book of my heart.
My second NaNo project is out on submission now. It has been with Harlequin Blaze for nine months and I got tired of waiting about 5 days ago and sent it out to another publisher. It’s called Tormented. It’s a biracial romantic suspense, heavy on the suspense, and I’m very happy with how it turned out. I hope to be announcing some news on it soon- (optimist, here).
This year, I’ll be working on Book Three of The Gambler’s Inheritance, a series under contract with Desert Breeze Publishing. I really need to be polishing Book Two of that series to get it ready to turn in, but I can rock the word count faster on new and shiny than I can on polishing and editing- and besides, I have a New York trip in the midst of all the NaNo hoopla and it’ll be less stress to write a first draft.
