Here’s another check-in with me on my current WIP Take the Shot. Today, I’m talking about the hero in my romance story Noah Kennedy.
I wrote Noah a little different than a lot of the sports romance heroes I have read about. He’s shy and quiet, and is kind of submissive. He’s a soft boy, and it’s more my heroine who is the alpha in the relationship. He’s a kind man who knows what he wants, and likes a woman who knows she’s in charge.
Here’s a new check in on my first WIP – Take the Shot. I wrote a blurb for it, but I’m not sure if I like it yet. I’ll be sharing it on My Books page once I am 100% on it. No one tells you how hard it is to write a freaking blurb! I wrote a 77,000 word novel, but writing a > 200 word blurb to get someone to buy that book?? SUPER HARD!
Here’s a new check in for me on my journey to publishing. I decided that I am going to go for this and self-pub my hockey romance series. I have four WIPs right now, all a part of a series, but each is about a different couple so they could standalone. WIP #1 is with two friends and I printed it out and am red penning the hard copy right now. and oh boy there is a lot of shit I need to change in it. But that’s progress!! So while doing that, I also have been doing a ton of RESEARCH!
The past couple of months, I’ve been reading and writing a lot of romance books. I’ve gotten really into hockey books, so I thought I would try my hand at writing them. Then oops I wrote FOUR books in a series. Like what? I’ve really enjoyed writing them…and I’m seriously considering trying my hand at this for real. Like, fuck it, let’s self-pub this stuff and see what happens. When I want to do something, I do it.
