On Friday, I finally sent Picture Perfect Wedding off to my editor. The book I thought would be on the short side and close to 90 thousand words, came in at 99 thousand! Obviously I have clue about length! All I know is as I got closer to the end of the story, more story needed to be wound up. When I was moaning it wouldn’t end, my editor kindly said, “you write delicious sub-plots so of course it will be long.”
The weekend was full of school activities with a dinner on Friday night and then the athletics carnival yesterday. I did the annual sausage sizzle and had fun chatting to parents. It was a good relax and total break from writing.
Now it’s Monday and I need to start my next project which is another medical romance. After the fun I had writing Tom’s Redemption for the Sydney Harbour Hospital Series, I jumped at the chance to write another series book. This time it’s a book set in sunny Queensland and out of sheer coincidence it is set on the Gold Coast where I just recently attended a conference! This makes picturing the setting very easy.
I’ve spent this morning choosing photos of the characters and I’ve made a photo board at Pinterest! This is my first ever gig at Pinterest and with all the copyright laws, I can’t display the board here, sorry, but it’s just one click away ;-)
Luke is a brooding plastic surgeon so Guy Pearce is my muse for him!
Chloe is a Greek Australian with a bubbly personality so I’ve chosen Nia Vardalos as my muse for her.
Let’s hope it helps because anyone who follows this blog knows I don’t start books very easily!
Now I need some help, please…..what sort of dog is popular with single women aged 30? Chloe needs a dog!
