I won NaNoWriMo!

So…as I’m preparing to pub my first novel in The Philadelphia Bulldogs romance series I’m starting, I’ve also been working on later books in the series. So I started NaNo this year with 11K words on a WIP that I was having a really tough time with. I’m planning for this to be book five of the series and you will finally get to see TJ Desjardins story! He’s a side character in Take The Shot, so you’ll meet him soon.

Take The Shot – Coming 2020? Maybe

Hi! Me again, here to talk to you about more progress with my upcoming debut, Take The shot!

So, initially I was thinking about releasing this book in Feb, but…when I got in contact with a designer for my cover and an editor, I realized those dates were cutting it a little close. Especially if I want any sort of pre-marketing on this book…so for now I’m aiming at sometime in 2020.

I have a blurb!

One of the things I last blogged about was my frustration with writing blurbs. They are so hard. I’ve really been struggling with the blurb for my first book, Take The Shot. I literally wrote six different versions of it, and just wasn’t satisfied with it. (Also, I wrote the blurbs for books two and three and really like them) So this book was just toying with me!

The Philadelphia Bulldogs Hockey Romance Series

One thing I knew I wanted to do when I started writing Take the Shot, the first in my hockey romance series, was come up with a team name. I’m a Flyers fan, so I wanted my team to be set in Philadelphia, but for legal reasons, I didn’t want to basically be writing Flyers fan-fiction. I know there is a hockey romance writer that did write fiction using The Flyers, but obviously all the guys on the team are fictional. From most of the books I’ve read all the teams have been fictional, and legally that is probably the better way to go. So how did I come up with The Philadelphia Bulldogs? It was kind of a placeholder!

Why Are Blurbs So Hard to Write?!?

One thing I am struggling right now as I figure out my next step with self-pubbing is writing blurbs! I can write a 77,000 novel, but having to write copy to get someone to buy that book? And keep it at 150-200 words?? That shit is HARD!

Take The Shot – Character Bio – Dinah Lace

My WIP Take The Shot starts with my heroine, Dinah Lace trying to work on her writing…and failing because of the hockey players who live next door to her throwing a party. Dinah was a fun character to write, she is eight years my hero Noah’s senior and they are best friends. Dinah is petite brunette who is stressed out with a job she hates and starting her career as a YA writer. She’s also been fighting her feelings for her neighbor and best friend, Noah Kennedy.
