Heard back already... but they want changes

So, Cain's Salvation was liked by one of the publishers that I submitted to. YEAH! But, they want some of the story changed. So, I am trying to rework the first couple of chapters to get Cain and Sam together sooner. At least he deserves to meet his lady earlier in the book, so its okay with me to make the changes.

What this really means is that Willie is going to have to wait a week or so before I can get back to her story while I put Cain and his issues through the wringer. Poor guy! LOL

New book started!

I don't know about everyone else, but I tend to have many ideas running through my mind that could make a decent book. The newest idea I had is in one of my favorite areas: vamps and shifters. I have a new heroine and hero trying to keep themselves alive while being tempted by fates wicked sense of humor. Willie, short for Willamina, is a shifter partially turned vamp. So, she has many of the good traits of both sides, and some of the weaknesses. She will run into, and eventually fall, for an ancient, jaded, vamp named Nikola. I can't wait to have the story play out in my head so I can put it to paper. Wish me luck.

First run through, finished!

I spent most of the weekend in the bedroom writing and reading. I tweaked my neck and sat around sucking down ibuprofen and muscle relaxers. Not bad for a weekend, actually. But, the important news is that I finished digging Cain out of my brain. His story is now resting peacefully on my harddrive. I celebrated with a little dance and a victory wave of my arms. I love getting to that last sentence and know that you have created something that is a good work. Cain made it easy, though. His story tripped off my fingers sometimes faster than I could keep up. He made me laugh and cry, made me angry and disappointed. I am glad that he is the first to get a book and a mate.

Wish me luck as I get his story edited. I am sure that he won't enjoy the demeaning task of having his life gone through with a fine toothcomb, but that isn't is call. LOL

thirteenth chapter done...

Well, for a book that was supposedly only going to have twelve chapters it is growing in leaps and bounds. That is what I get for having characters that want to take the book further than I was going to. :) Two weeks is my goal. In two weeks I will have it written and read through. Then, off to an editor.
