Woo hoo!!! Finished!


After starting to heavily write Before Dawn Breaks in July of this year after changing the story and genre a bunch of times (my main MC was a wizard once...I kid you not) working from a previous screenplay idea I had, I can put it aside and say it is finished! Whew! I feel like I've gone on the adventure with my MCs. :-D

Just in case you're wondering, Before Dawn Breaks is a romantic suspense thriller about two people trying to escape dark pasts: an amnesiac former assassin turned writer (ugh another writer!) and a former secret service agent turned restaurateur who isn't exactly who he appears to be. The past comes back to haunt as a hit is taken out on both of them. Sometimes it’s deadly to face the future without resolving the past. (dun, dun, duuuun...) Sparks fly, car chases ensue and a good time is had by all.

But me...I'm just jazzed it's done!

Now I'm going to go reward myself by diving into the pile of books gathering on my nightstand (or file folders, depending on the format of said books). :-D

Congrats on finishing. It is a great on to rewrites? Editing? Beta readers? Aromatic mud baths?

NANOWRIMO awaits for me in November. Time to get all the nagging little chores of life swept aside before the big push.

How you can handle the desert is beyond me. Drove to Phoenix in July and unloaded a nephew's truck in 112+ degrees. Ain't for me.

Write on!

Thanks Rick! I'm putting that sucker aside for a while cause I think I'm sick of it. Gah!

Ooh yes, tis almost November isn't it? I was pondering finally pushing aside my fear and entering...but I'm still debating. May the muse be with you! :-D

I gotta say I can't wait to leave Phoenix. I try to stay in the A/C at all times cause I'm sensitive to the heat but it's driving me bonkers.

Must have beach! :-D

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
