Taking stock of the past week

This past week I finally finished up the novella that I'd been working on, on/off, for many months. I loved the couple, but their story (setting and history) was challenging. SWEET-TALKING THE OPOSITION is about two journalists who had a fling in the past, and get thrown together again when they are both sent to cover the launch of a luxurious new Rhine cruiser. In the end I loved how it came out and have my fingers and toes crossed that the editor who requested the full MS will like it too.

After winding that up, I took a day out to do some web updates and other stuff that had been waiting, plus some reading for a pal, and now I’m working on Sven Project number 2, revisions for RECKLESS. I was kind of dreading it, but now I’ve started it I see it’s not such a big scary job after all and actually I’m going to enjoying tweaking it! Happy happy :)

If you’re doing the Sven challenge, or you’re about to begin NaNo, good luck, work hard!

Oooh, I like the sound of 'Sweet Talking...'! What a great setting. :)

Good luck with those revisions. I'm sure they'll make Reckless even *more* fabulous. Can't wait to read it!
