I can see the light!

PhotobucketGood news!  PROJECT: RUNAWAY HEIRESS is done! :dancebat

It took one last push through the weekend, & the end—or would that be The End?—isn’t quite as perfect as I’d like, but I’m pretty much done with the writing on the very first book of my new “Project: Passion” mini-series for Harlequin Desire.

I had a rough start with this one.  First, it came about a lot more quickly than I ever could have expected.  I turned in my last book to Desire & had a chat with Editor C about what I should do next.  A weekend of brainstorming later, I’d come up with the idea for “Project: Passion”.  Two days after that, Desire bought them & wanted the first book as quickly as possible.

Which was all well & good until…

Second, my grandmother had her stroke.  That ate up such a huge chunk of my summer (i.e. writing time) & was so incredibly draining, it really threw me off.  Editor C was hugely understanding & kind enough to give me a little extra time with the book, & finally—finally!—I was able to kick that puppy out.

And at this point, I’m really happy with it.  Of course, I’m not truly done yet.  Oh, no—coming to an end with the initial writing is only Step 1.  Next I need to let my brain rest & reboot, then go back to the beginning & start the revision process.  Fingers crossed everything will go smoothly & the story will hold together beautifully.

But I can’t wait to have that done & get this book turned in.  That will mean I can jump into Book 2, PROJECT: RUNAWAY BRIDE, which is already starting to brew in my head & is going to be good. :cool
