Weekly Wrap-up: November 4th
This weekend, authors & readers are celebrating their love of historical romance by posting selfies of us reading historical romances on social media! My #FallBack pix are usually ‘doggies’ and ‘Legoies’ more than selfies, but I think we’re all secretly dying to see dogs and toys reading historical romance anyhow.
“NaNo” is short for National Novel Writing Month, where writers from around the globe get together virtually and kick some wordly ass (In case it wasn’t clear, I made the word ‘wordly’ up). The generic Nano goal is 50K words by the end of November.
My goal: rough-finish two contemporaries for the Bella Love name. Current progress: about 6K
Getting Cover Made
Getting a cover made for the single title release of The King’s Outlaw. This will be the ‘director’s cut’ extended edition, with some extra scenes that had to be cut from the novella version that appeared in the anthology, Captured by a Celtic Warrior.
Finalizing Print Version of CLAIMING HER
Completed the text formatting for Claiming Her. Or I should say my buddy Amy Atwell & her company Author EMS did (and ooohh, it’s so pretty, with the Renegades & Outlaws logo appearing as part of the chapter breaks!)
Waiting now on the print cover to get done, then I order proofs and see how it looks in hard copy, holding it in my hand. Once I approve those, it will be ready for purchase, hopefully by Christmas!
Joined up with Madeline Martin, writer of Scottish historical romance, in an upcoming giveaway to reward readers and hopefully introduce you to some new historical romance authors.
“Thankful for Historical Romance Readers” giveaway will place in a couple weeks. Stay tuned for more info!
