The End & The Beginning of edits

The End of the first draft & The Beginning of edits!



Well, I just finished the first draft of Loving You the squeal to  My One-Night Stand, My Forever. I have not started the editing process as of yet. I would like to put this book to the side for a couple of days and work on other projects that I have started while I was writing Loving You.

I enjoyed writing about Ethan and Tyler, their relationship is very sweet and special so expect some fluff. I am happy with the finished product of the second version of this book. If you read my last update, I had to restart Ethan and Tyler’s story because it did not feel right. The title took me a to figure out which was another issue.

I am not the fastest writer, and I envy authors that are able to publish a book a couple of months apart. Maybe once I am more experienced I will be able to do the same. But as of now I ask for your patience. I went through so many different emotions and songs to find the right playlist for this book. It is a long list I will add a couple of songs that I was able to write to. I suspect as a writer it will be that way. You experience what your characters are feeling.

Other than that, I have been doing DIY projects on my home and a few baking projects. I have always wanted to bake cupcakes and cakes like they on television so I am giving that a try. Sometimes they come out looking as it does on the television and other times a flop. Maybe I will show those as well.

One last thing I would like to say. Our world is filled with hate and people who are very unhappy in their lives. And to make themselves feel better, they think that it is ok to hurt others. My heart hurts just as I know yours are hurting right now because of the tragedy in Orlando Fl. This is because of one person hate and the fact that he did not understand that love is love no matter the gender. We cannot and should not let this stop us from loving and supporting one another. Please keep the families of those who lost a loved one, or was wounded in your nightly and daily thoughts and prayers as I will.
Thanks for your support.

September 1st & another year I did not get my letter to Hogwarts!

I happy to be starting the month out on a great note, even though I did not get my Hogwarts letter. My second book will be available on the 20th. YAY!! I am also working on my short story that I hope to be completed by the end of the month, I know my betas are eager to get their hands on it. Stephen and Brenden's story is coming along nicely. There will be a struggle with these two men, after all, they have a history together. I am also working on two new series that I hope to start once I'm done with My One-Night Stand Series. It has not been decided if the new series will be mpreg or not. I am working on my website that I hope to have up and running by the end of the month (I know I have said this before). I love blogger, but there's more that I want to do with my site. I am not tech savvy so it is taking me a while to get my site the way I like it.

Loving You is up for Pre-order on Amazon.
